This year, your RSW hosts are Alison Miller, Jaime Morrow, Erin Funk, Katy Upperman and myself. (For the detailed information about RSW, including the wonderful buttons created by the lovely Jaime, click here)
And don’t forget, if you’re on Twitter, we check and cheer each other on using #RSWrite
Hope everyone had a wonderful second week!
1. How I did on last week’s goals.
Rewrite the first two chapters of my thriller in 3rd and in 1st to see which one works bestDONE! 3rd it is but man that’s going to be HARD! Possibly start revising A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER and if not make the revision plan of YOU ARE MINE and revise at least 3 hours a day.DONE! I am actually almost done revising A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER. I need to add a few more scenes and re-read it and off it goes to a wonderful reader tomorrow (well today by the time this post comes up) Business side of things: detailed business planDONE! I’ve done the business plan for A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER. I might share it with you all. Still thinking about it 😛

2. My goal(s) for this week.

- Prepare the cover reveal for A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER
- Share the blurb on A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER on my Facebook group.

3. A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised.
“I can’t deal with someone else telling me what’s good for me, what I should do, what I need, what I want. I know what I want.”
4. The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write).
Fleshing out scenes I had been trying to avoid and had summarized. Digging deeper.
5. Something I love about my WiP.
That this revision is making it SO. MUCH. STRONGER. (Thanks again Riley!)
I am SO very much looking forward to reading all about your progress!
