Ready, Set, Write #RSW2014 – Novelette? Done!

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 finished my novelette and it’s off to the very capable hands of Alison (thanks again!) and Jen. I am so excited about this! Publication is planned for the fall 2014. And I love it, but maybe she will hate it, and arrrrghhh! Yes, I’m having a bout of writer’s insecurity.

* I may have drafted a few thousand words of a secret project – which I am putting aside for now.

MY GOAL(S) FOR THIS WEEK

* Revise 3 chapters of DADDY´S LITTLE GIRL

* Prepare the drafting of ALWAYS SECOND BEST (companion novel of One, Two, Three). I am actually going to try outlining, let’s see how I do.

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

A bit of Emilia and Nick from the prequel novelette of One, Two, Three:  “You’re driving me crazy,” he tells her loud enough that I can hear him. She’s about to say something back, but their lips meet and it’s like watching a new dance unfolding in front of me. They get lost in one another.

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED THIS WEEK


Time.

As always.

And the hubby being in the US while we’re also preparing for our big move back to Maryland (if all goes well…)

SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WIP

Thanks to ONLY ONE DREAM, I also got to brainstorm a bit more about Nick and Emilia. And I’m so excited about their story. Especially because…gasp, it might be a dual POV.

Looking forward to cheering you on!

    Great job on completing that novelette! It must feel good to reach the finish line on that! Sounds like you had a super productive week with all those words on a new secret project too. Glad to hear you had such awesome momentum, and I hope you get lots of positive feedback on your novelette!

  3. Congrats on finishing your novelette! Can’t wait to read it. Time has been my issue lately too, but it sounds like you’re making a ton of progress on your goals. Good luck this week!
