How I did on last week's goals:
I'd say I had a successful week. My goals from last week were:
1. Add more romantic scenes between my two MCs in Fading: Check!
2. Add 1-2k on my psychological thriller: Well...I kind of succeeded. I did write almost 3k. But it was on a different project. Another YA contemporary.
My goal for this week:
1. Work on my query for Fading. This is going to be interesting since I SUCK at queries!
2. Add 1-2k on another project, probably my new contemporary since that's the one I'm feeling at the moment.
One word that sums up what I wrote/revised:
Sexy! It's still new and I need to revise it, which is why I'm not posting any lines...yet!
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
Impatience. I want to get everything done now! I want to be done with Fading so I can start querying, I want my first draft of my new project done so I can start revising. I had to take a step back and look at the big picture. Slowing it down so I can appreciate the process and continue to learn is what really matters. If I rush everything it'll show through my writing and my chances of landing an agent are slim to none.
Something I love about my WIP:
Second chances. Both my MCs have made mistakes and are trying to overcome them. I'm glad I get to watch them grow up and move on from those mistakes.
