Ready. Set. Write.
Hello everyone. So I’m trying something new. Something a bit different than my usual reviews and fun. In case any of you didn’t know already I’m also an aspiring author. I have been writing for fun for a long while but I have yet to finally finish any of my projects for one reason or another. I have not done anything like this before, the closest would be NaNoWriMo. Which is also the last time I worked on my current project. That being said I’m going to participate in Ready. Set. Write. this summer and push myself to work on my writing. But don’t worry I will still be reading and reviewing!
Ready. Set. Write is a summer writing intensive that provides an opportunity for everyone to cheer each other on wherever we are in our writing stage. This year the RSW hosts are Alison Miller, Katy Upperman, Erin Funk, Elodie Nowodazki, and Jamie Morrow. Each Monday everyone will post a few quick lines under the headlines then spend a few minutes visiting and spreading the love and encouragement to other participants then get back to those WIP. Sounds like a plan.
Today is day 1 so we only post our goals for the week. Here goes.
Week 1 goals:
- It’s been too long since I worked on my project so I need to read everything I have written at this point, all 52K words of it; plus my notes, scene cards, character cards, the works and find the heart of my story again.
- Once I have the heart and soul of the story back at the forefront of my mind, goal two is to write at least FOUR FULL separate scenes. Lengths depend on the particular scene but I figure finishing scenes over word count might work better for me.
That’s it. I’m starting off small but better than nothing!
