Ready. Set. Write! Week 1




 http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VaHm0qiHLRE/VWIxOBAYtfI/AAAAAAAADtI/ZMhwwhfDA3Q/s1600/RSW11.png
Here we are, the first week is done!  If you don't know what Ready. Set. WRITE! is, check it out here

    ●How I did on last weeks goal(s):
Write 2000 words for the week.
Here is the breakdown of my words per week. 
Monday: 616 words
Tuesday: 323 words
Wednesday: 987 words
Thursday: 117 words
Friday: Off
Saturday: 755 words
Sunday: 99 words
TOTAL: 2897 words 
So glad I was able to keep to my goal! Very interesting that my most words were on Wednesday, which was my half hour I allotted myself during my lunch break. I am definitely going to aim to have more of these sessions this week.

     ●My goal(s) for this week:
I'm going to stick with the 2000 words again. I have a pretty busy week, with my son's birthday on Friday and Father's day on Sunday, so I'm not sure I will be able to get any more words than last week. 

   ●A favorite line from my story OR a word or phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
I'm loving the angst between my MC and her ex. The physical attraction is there, but they just can't seem to get it together on an emotional level.
 
    ●The biggest challenge I faced this week (ie finding time to write, getting sick, having writers block, etc):
In regards to being more active in the writer community... I didn't do that great. It seems Twitter is the main social site for everyone, am I right? Still learning all of the ins and outs. Plus I think I was using the wrong hashtag...lol. Hope to start interacting more soon! I am @SuzLMeyer if you want to add me! (Pretty please?)

    ●Something I love about my WIP:
This is my first draft, but I am loving how the story is unfolding itself. I still don't know who my MC is going to end up with at the end....hmmm....

I hope everyone has a productive week!

  1. Nice job on those word counts every day! *fist bump* And don't worry, finding your space in the writing community seems huge/weird at first, and then all the sudden one day you're just there. It's weird how it works, but it does! (It did for me anyway!)

  2. I'm going to second what Riley said! And we are using the hashtag #RSWrite. Elodie's set up a twitter list that I troll on occasion and is a great way to see what others in RSW are up to. Definitely make sure you've been added! And great job on the word count goal! I find that when I have smaller amounts of time, I write more too. I hope you have another wonderful writing week!

  3. I followed you! I'm not a huge fan of Twitter, but I feel like it's a necessary evil for writers. But I also think if you don't do it right it's not worth doing at all, and I haven't quite figured out how to do it right. I figure by the time I'm agented I'll have it down. Ha! Good luck to you!
