Okay, it’s time for Ready Set Write again. I’ve only done this a few times, but apparently it’s time to wrap up for the summer already!
How I did on Last Week’s Goals
Exceeded them! I said I wanted to work through six critiques, and I finished off the entire stack, which I figure was at least eight. And I figured out a bunch of great stuff that will make my story better, once I actually figure out how much I’m ready to change with the next draft.
Well, I think I’ve done pretty well. I went to two amazing writing workshops this summer, drafted four new short stories, finished two quick revision rounds for “TimeBubble Blues” and got started on some revision for ‘Gotta Have That Look.’
Favorite Line from my WIP
I’m going to pick another line that one of my critique partners from Young Gunns picked out as liking:
“I dunno, Jimmy,” Stephanie said. “I never thought you’d be one of those kids who chose to look like somebody we’ve all seen on the tabloid shows.”
The Biggest Challenge I Faced This Week
Trying to figure out how much I’m willing to change for this revision. I’ve got lots of great ideas, involving big changes to the plot and some of the characters. Not sure yet how they’ll all fit together, or if they all will.
Something I love about my WIP
The premise, with teenagers getting genetic therapy injections to look like anybody they want. 🙂
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!
Congrats on exceeding last week’s goals! Love the premise of your WIP–very cool 🙂
Oh, wow. Your story’s premise sounds SO COOL. And so glad you could participate with us this summer and that you accomplished some of your goal! Good luck with the revising!
What a fun premise! And great work with all your goals! I hope your fall is as productive as your summer!
That IS an awesome premise. I can definitely see all the chaos that it would cause.
Good luck with your revision!
