Welcome to Week 4 of Ready. Set. Write. Simple is the name of the game.
How I did on last weeks goals: Well I missed last week given I was sleeping most of the day after returning from UtopYA super late/early. But the last goals I had went pretty good. I had a blast at UtopYA and did learn a ton, made tons of new contacts and friends, and had such an amazing time I can't even put into words. I know some of you asked for details, to keep this short I made a brief post about it and filled it with tons of pictures and a swag giveaway open until Tuesday which you can see here! I also haven't posted the lip sync videos anywhere but Facebook due to my lack of knowledge on uploading them and Blogger saying they are too large.
I did not post a chapter in my Fanfic as I was so busy having fun there and honestly being home has just zapped me. Apparently being out there and open when you're normally more of an introvert takes a lot out of you. I did get about halfway through the chapter I want to post and I have the rest plotted out just have to get it rolling again.
I didn't work on my WIP at all thought. But at UtopYA several people gave me an idea for another story and I have been writing down ideas and notes for that so I'll count it as a half win.
I also technically did my posts/reviews but it was also an extra week in there so I feel there should have been more but the signal in Nashville was kinda crappy for everyone so I honestly didn't even take my computer out of its case. I was in my room to drop off books/swag, refuel, shower/change, and SLEEP.
My goals for this week:
· Work on a new short story that came to me Sunday and see if it could develop into more than a short story as I'm kind of unsure just yet but I don't want to lose it.
· Finish and post the new chapter in my Fanfic that I didn't do.
· Again: Write at least one scene on my original WIP story so I don't lose momentum.
· Finish the 2 books I'm reading along with a friend this week (The Darkest Minds & Shadow & Bone) as well as at least one of my TBR books I got at UtopYA.
· Make a schedule for some upcoming events I want to host on my blog and do at least 2 reviews!
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised: What I have currently is just notes for a new story but the idea/project others mentioned was something I thought about previously. A collection of short stories about the crazy and insane time as a 911 dispatcher for a small southern county. Thoughts?
The biggest challenge I face this week: Coming back from vacation and trying to readjust my schedule. Also remembering all my work passwords (seriously I have like 8 different ones that have to be changed at different time frames which make it hard enough to remember on a good day let alone after a week of no use).
Something I love about my WIP: That I have all these new ideas running through my head and so much determination to FINISH them.
That’s it for this week.
