Ready. Set. Write! Week 4

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VaHm0qiHLRE/VWIxOBAYtfI/AAAAAAAADtI/ZMhwwhfDA3Q/s1600/RSW11.png
Thanks for stopping by and for the support over the past weeks!  Just a reminder, here are the lovely ladies hosting this link up: AlisonJamieKatyErin, & Elodie.

Let's get right to it!
    ●How I did on last weeks goal(s):

I barely made my word count goal of 2500 words.

Here is the breakdown of my words per week. 

Monday: 548 words

Tuesday:   off

Wednesday: 737 words

Thursday:  469 words

Friday: 638 words

Saturday: off

Sunday:  175 words

TOTAL: 2567 words 

     ●My goal(s) for this week:
I'm sticking to the 2500 words for the week again.

   ●A favorite line from my story OR a word or phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
Here's a little snippet, totally rough!!!
  
“Late night?” There was hardness in his voice.
“Looks that way.” Gia really didn’t feel like talking to JR right now. She kept her response short in hopes that he would saunter away and leave her and her raging headache alone.
“So was Romann as good in bed as you were hoping for?”
Well I guess her wish wouldn’t be granted today. She decided she was going to give him what he was asking for. “Even better than I could imagine. He’s so experienced, he could probably teach you a thing or two.”

    ●The biggest challenge I faced this week (ie finding time to write, getting sick, having writers block, etc):
I'm getting to the point in my story where I have written all of my scenes that I have mapped out so far. And I'm nowhere near being close to my goal of 80,000 words.  Not sure if I should get through all my scenes now and hit that bump in the revision stage or really look at the story as a whole and figure out where to add some major subplots or what! GAH!
    ●Something I love about my WIP:
I probably sound like a broken record, but just getting the words in! I can't believe how far this story has come since I started this summer writing intensive.  So awesome to see.

Have a great week!

  2. Great job making your word goals. I know it probably feels like dribs and drabs but you're making big progress :)

    1. Yes, dribs and drabs sounds exactly right. It is amazing though how much I've written even over these few weeks.

    1. I'm glad you liked it! :D
      I haven't really "labeled" my WIP yet, but it's leaning toward women's fiction, new adult, with a little sci fi and lots of romance!!

  4. Way to go on meeting your word count goal! I'm so glad to hear you've had such a productive summer so far. Just read your response to Alison, and I have to say "a little sci fi and lots of romance" sounds awesome, as did your excerpt. My WIP/trilogy is sci-fi with lots of romance, so I'm partial. Good luck getting out another 2500 words this week! :)
