Setting up my goals for Ready, Set, Write #RSW2014

RSWtealpolaroidWelcome back to Ready. Set. WRITE! If you’re wondering what RSW is all about, it’s a summer long writing intensive with the purpose of writing, revising, planning, and keeping each other accountable. We will be sharing our goals on Mondays, keeping our posts BRIEF (2-3 lines per heading) so we can spend more time on writing and less time on blogging. You can sign up at any of the host blogs (Alison‘s,Katy‘s, Erin‘s, Jaime’s) every Monday. And don’t forget to hop around to encourage other participants. For more info about RSW and a link to their super fun buttons, go here.

HOW I DID ON LAST WEEK’S GOALS
I didn’t have any 🙂

MY GOAL(S) FOR THIS WEEK
* Revise 4 chapters of DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL…it’s back to revising in the train for me this week.

A FAVORITE LINE FROM MY STORY OR ONE WORD/PHRASE THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED

Very rough…but here we go: “Finally coming to get you. Are you ready to die, Daddy’s little girl?”

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED THIS WEEK
n/a

SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WIP

Getting to know Erin, my main character. She didn’t have it easy: her father terrorized their little Texan community, killing many teenagers before “disappearing” and she’s the one who helped the police realize he was responsible. Now, she’s trying very hard to stay strong, to blend in and to make sure everyone forgets she was “Daddy’s little girl.” She’s a fan of old movies and was hand picked to participate in beauty pageants. Looking forward to adding extra layers to her personality during this revision round.

    Pretty sure you deserved a break last week!!! Can’t wait to know more about Dadd’s Little Girl! Good luck revising!

    So glad you’re working on this story again! I can’t wait to read the whole thing so I’m all for you completing your goals this week! (and then some 🙂 ) Also, SO glad you are back to RSW. We missed you! Good luck this week, Elodie!

    I also find I develop my characters a lot more in revision. I have ideas ahead of writing, but it’s really hard to know your character until you’ve written the story, IMO>

    So happy you’re joining us, Elodie! I’ve been looking forward to it. 🙂 Your goal for this week is a good one. Wishing you lots of productivity on the train this week! And I kind of love getting to my know my MC as well. It’s one of the best parts of crafting a story, don’t you think? 😀

  5. I love all those extra details and depth you can add once you really know your characters 🙂 I remember little bits about this story…hope it all goes well revising this week!

    I so admire you for being able to work on your commute. I’m very easily distracted and could never manage that. Concentration must be your super power! That line from your WIP is so creepy! I hope your revisions continue to go well this week! As for me, I’ve been rewarding myself with reading ONE TWO THREE when I’m done my writing lately. Nata and Tonio are great motivation for finishing up my work! 😀
