Well, I spotted this blogging thing and decided to join in. Apparently calling it a ‘writing intensive’ is enough for everybody else doing it, though that phrase makes me ask ‘an intensive what?’ ;) But they’ve got good headings of what to share, so here goes.
How I did on Last Week’s Goals
Well, I didn’t post any RSW goals last week, because I didn’t do it, and the goals I sent to Team Ambitious were for that two-week round, all about revision, and I didn’t really get anything done on them yet. But–I started a new story! And I did some work on the ‘How to Think Sideways’ course and worked on two story critiques, so that’s not nothing.
My Goals for This Week
Finish the draft of the xylophone story. Make some kind of measurable revision progress.
Favorite Line from my WIP
This is half a paragraph, but I can’t resist sharing it all:
“Petra was at the near end of the near bench, and at the far end of the other was Angelo, looking like he thought he was in charge–as always. He waved for Nicholas to come and join them, but Nicholas had a better authority to follow. Yes, even a cat was better at being in charge than Angelo.”
The Biggest Challenge I Faced This Week
Getting over the post-workshop crash from TNEO week in New Hampshire, especially since it was such a busy and stressful workshop–in good ways, but still I was tired when I got back home.
Something I love about my WIP
The idea I came up with during the A-Z challenge. This is the Xeroxxing Xylophone idea. I got some great help from Jeanne and others during the TNEO brainstorming session fleshing it out.
Okay, I guess that’s it for me. Click here if you want to join in, or check out other writers doing Ready Set Write!
