And don’t forget, if you’re on Twitter, we check and cheer each other on using #RSWrite

1.  How I did on last week’s goals.

Womp. Womp. And yay? I forgot how hard it was to draft while trying to get everything ready for a release…

  • Write 10000 words in ASB i.e write at least 2000 words a day. –> I wrote about 3000 words
  • Continue yoga at least 3 times a week and if my back feels better, run at least once. –> my back has been better but I didn’t do any workout this week.
  • Catch-up on my online class –> Yep
  • Write a selfpub post –> Done.
  • Finish timeline and create timeline for Always Second Best –> Tough one but a bit more clarity.
  • Write newsletter for Thursday –> Done 🙂

2.  My goal(s) for this week.

  • My book is coming out on Thursday sooooooooo enjoying it without stressing too too much is one of my goals…
  • Write at least 2000 words a day (except on Thursday)
  • Run twice this week, work out once and do yoga twice
  • Continuing my online class
  • Prepare for my release on Thursday (send information to bloggers who signed up for my Book Blitz, newsletter, teasers, newsletter)
  • Write a selfpub post
  • Set up One Dream Only in German (the ebook)

3.  A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised.

Surprising. Em & Nick have a mind of their own, that’s for sure.

4.  The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write).

Balancing my release and writing.

5.  Something I love about my WiP.

My side characters. I love that they also “speak” to me ❤
