This has been a great summer. I finished up revisions of Fading and even started a new project! A big shout out to Jamie Marrow, Erin Funke, Katy Upperman, and Alison Miller for setting this whole thing up, you guys rock!
Throughout this summer Ready. Set. Write gave me the motivation I needed to really push myself in my writing and my goals. It was challenging at times what with all the summer activities going on, but accountability definitely helped me to stick to my goals. Even though I didn't meet them every week, I TRIED, which is better than nothing.
How I Did On Last Week's Goals:
I stuck to taking a break and it was really nice to step back and enjoy the last bit of summer with my kids. I didn't get in that 1k, but I got some reading done and even beta'd for someone!
The Biggest Challenge I Faced This Week:
Other than pure summer laziness? Not much.
A Favorite Line:
The untidy threads of my life were coming loose. They criss-crossed in fashions of disarray, the seams ugly and unhinged. My heart and head went to war with each other. I didn’t hate my mom. I loved her. But there was a part of her I didn’t understand, and that was where love began its tread on shaky ground.
Something I Love About My WIP:
I think it would have to be the music that inspired many of my scenes. I don't do playlists but I have Pandora and I listened to Lorde's channel exclusively for inspiration. I adore her and I love everything that comes up on it!
I'm going to miss these weekly updates and reading how everyone else is doing. I can't believe summer is over! But I'm glad I was able to participate and for the things I was able to accomplish.
