I am stepping out on a huge ledge here, and joining some lovely writers for my FIRST EVER writing link up. So without further ado...
Here's a little bit about READY. SET. WRITE!
Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer writing intensive that provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on wherever we’re at in our writing—planning, drafting, or revising. We set goals, write/revise/plan like crazy, and keep one another accountable. It is hosted by Alison, Katy, Erin, Jaime & Elodie.
I need this accountability, desperately. Especially if I ever plan to actually finish this manuscript.
So here are my big goals for the summer:
- Get my word count to 40,000 for my WIP. I'm currently at 17,000, so that will be roughly 2000 words a week.
- Go to the beach at least twice this summer.
- Get more active within the writing community, whether it's blogging, twitter, etc. Just get out there and start conversations!
- Write 2000 words for the week! Short and simple, I am really hoping I can do this!
Oh, and since this is my first time doing Ready. Set. WRITE!, here's a little bit about me. Hi, I'm Suzanne! I live in Florida with my lovely husband, our two crazy kids (Kaitlyn is 4, Zack is 1) and our two spoiled kitties. I am an interior designer by day and try to fit in my writing on lunch breaks, nights, weekends and long work flights (clearly I'm failing!) I'm a closet writer, my husband is the only one that knows I'm writing a novel, so it's finally out there in the open! I am very excited and nervous to be doing this! Thanks for reading!
