1. How I did on last week’s goals
Really well, two goals completed and the last, well... My super helpful link for the week is from Janice Hardy's website: Living in My Head: Crafting Natural-Sounding Internal Thoughts
Revise two chapters in WIP - Actual success! I revised two chapters and started on a third. I
was really on a roll for a while.
Final revision of query letter - Finished the final revisions, I think it's good enough to take to MWW14.
Revise synopsis - I took a look at it Sunday night, but I don't think it really counts.
2. My goal(s) for this week
It's Midwest Writer's Week, I'm so excited!!! So my goals are different for this week.
- Revise synopsis by Wednesday
- Print copies of materials to share at MWW14
3. A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised.
“Would it not have been easier to put a pea under my pillow?” she mumbled.
“Easier, but less enjoyable for me,” he said with a smirk.4. The biggest challenge I faced this week.
Sadness. Being stuck in my chair did have it's benefits and I started the week out great. But when two big traumas hit me on Friday, I pretty much went down the rabbit hole. I think I finally dug my way out, but it was a bummer two days for writing.
5. Something I love about my WiP.
Since it's a fairy tale it's all about getting to your happily ever after. And it's a nice goal to work toward. I mean, you have to get dragged through tar and muck to get there, but who shouldn't have to work towards a happy ending?
How did you do this week? I'd love to hear from you!
