Last week I read and made notes on Chapter 2 of FIRE, finished all but the last 30 pages of the MS I’m beta reading, and added about 700 new words to the FIRE rewrite.
My Goals For This Week
I’m leaving for vacation later this week, so really my only goal is to finish reading that MS. Anything else I get done in between working and packing is a bonus.
One Phrase That Sums Up What I Revised
Pacing, man. Pacing. *facepalm*
The Biggest Challenge I Faced This Week
Since I’m setting weekly goals now my inclination is to do most of my writing toward the end of the week because nothing like a little pressure to make you focus, right? Except I worked Saturday and Sunday and it was rainy and cold so I spent all of my free time asleep or watching TV in bed. Oops.
Something I Love About My WIP
As I read through Chapter 2 last week, I started thinking of ways to better develop the relationship between my MC and her mother, which will strengthen the conflict because the whole thing is that Aimee is partly responsible for her mother’s execution. (BRING ON THE GUILT.)
