Welcome 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
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.
