Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer writing intensive that encourages goal-setting and accountability, and provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on wherever we’re at with our writing projects—planning, drafting, revising, or polishing. This year, your RSW hosts are Alison Miller, Jaime Morrow, Erin Funk, Elodie Nowodazkij, and myself. All the details are HERE.
How I Did on Last Week’s Goals:
Writing- I began work on my screenplay revision on Thursday and was able to get 9 pages that day. I also finished the BEAT SHEET for the other screenplay I’m working on. It’s still a rough draft, but I love the idea and where it’s going.
Reading – I finished Things We Know By Heart by Jessie Kirby, but haven’t had a chance to start any new reads yet. I plan to start A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas next.
Workout – I kept up my exercise routine, and added in two sessions with my brother the personal trainer. This week I would like to do the same!
My Goals This Week:
1. Get between 5-15 pages on my screenplay every day this week. I won’t have a full finished revision before I leave for Comic Con and Los Angeles, but I’ll be more than half way through.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas next.
1. Start knocking stuff off my “getting ready for Comic Con list” and don’t panic about the fact that it’s almost here.
2. Workout every day, do two sessions with my brother this week.
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised.
Line of Dialog from one of my characters, Simon.
But here, we can be anything. Here, maybe there’s way to save the damsel. Even if the damsel is you.
The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write).
Focus. I have a lot going on right now, like everyone, and focusing on the task at hand without getting distracted with future tasks, other tasks I should be dealing with, was a real hurdle this week.
Something I love about my WiP.
I love that by the end of this revision I will have a largely different story than I had at the end of the first draft, but will still feature all the same characters, just deeper versions of themselves. The power of revision in action!
What are your goals this week?
