Welcome to Week 11 of Ready. Set. Write. Simple is the name of the game.
How I did on last weeks goals:
I want to finish Never Fade! I give up. I am an epic fail! Okay so I read more of it and I only have like 100 pages to go and plan to finish it today but nope still not done.
I'd like to get serious about my story and take a look to see what's left that I need. I write in different parts, whatever scene is calling to me at that particular time. So I need to start piecing it together and see what is missing, besides the ending- Yes! I did start going through and found things I was missing, and I swear some of the scenes I remember writing them but they are not on my master copy so all I can think is they got typed and didn’t save L
Along with the above goal I'd like to not only find the missing pieces but write them up and work on as many as possible- So as many as possible turned out to be three. Still proud it’s 9,711 words so I’m pretty proud!
I'd love to get a week ahead in reviews for my blog so that would be two for this week and next week- Nope! I did my reviews I posted last week. I did Truth here and Shadow and Bone here but I didn’t get as much of a head start on this week as I’d have liked.
Along with finishing Never Fade finally I'd like to read at least 2 other books I have on my TBR list for review- Done! I read 3 books and a graphic novel! Well I listened to one, I found audiobooks are good for getting reading done when it hurts to read because your eyes or head hurt.
My goals for this week:
|All the time really but still!|
Transition to day shift! I start back to days Wednesday so I have 1.5 days to adjust my internal clock
Continue what I started last week, working on scenes I am missing. I’m aiming for 5K.
Read and work on my review for Another Day.
Revamp/Re-write my budget. Rising power costs given the Hades like temps and other bills that flux and revamp my savings and trip fund.
Read 2 additional books (not counting Never Fade which should be finished by end of day)
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
Shrugging off his jacket he slung it over her shoulders and helped her slip each arm in one at a time. “Okay Lexi, I need you to help me here. Where are your keys?”
She almost fell out of his grip when she leaned back and lifted up her leg. He readjusted his grip on her and guided her over to the parking lot and leaned her against her car. Leaning so his shoulder helped prop her up he reached down and unzipped her boot and found her key, phone, and two cards. Smiling he pulled out the key and zipped up her boot.
The biggest challenge I face this week: It was my last week on night shift (11pm-11am) I’m posting it still on nights but when I leave in a few hours I will be off until starting day shift Wednesday! So I tried very hard to stay on the night schedule on my off days to make it go smoothly which worked for that but I don’t feel super motivated to do anything when waking up at midnight but lounge.
Something I love about my WIP: I’m doing everything thing I can to make it seem as real as possible. Not gloss over something because it might not be something that will go over well or might be bashed.
That’s it for this week. Good luck this week!
