Ready. Set. Write! Week 9 Check In

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VaHm0qiHLRE/VWIxOBAYtfI/AAAAAAAADtI/ZMhwwhfDA3Q/s1600/RSW11.png
A little late in posting on Monday but here I am!
  Just a reminder, here are the lovely ladies hosting this link up: AlisonJamieKatyErin, & Elodie.

    ●How I did on last weeks goal(s):
This week was my mulligan week.
Goal 1: Finish my read through: Complete!
Goal 2: Add another new scene or flesh out existing scenes: Added a little bit here, more fleshing out than anything.
Goal 3: Make notes for final scenes and ending of book: Worked on this a bit. I know how I want the ending to go, it's just getting all the pieces to fit that is the struggle. 

     ●My goal(s) for this week:
I'm going back to my trusty word count goal for this week.
2000 words.

   ●A favorite line from my story OR a word or phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
Lots of pondering and putting the puzzle together.

    ●The biggest challenge I faced this week (ie finding time to write, getting sick, having writers block, etc):
In order to finish the ending, I had to figure out the backstory of my MC's family and how all of the people weave together. I'm basically figuring out the story before my actual story takes place, a prequel if you will. But I had to finalize that story first before even finishing my real story! LOL, did that make sense? Hopefully now I have it all straight in my head so I can finish writing the ending!

    ●Something I love about my WIP:
Even though I had to figure out the backstory, I love the story even more and where it is taking me.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Hooray for a good week!

    Your prequel backstory makes perfect sense to me. Last fall, I wrote a 13K+ word scene, which basically chronicled the scope of a couple's relationship, because I needed another character to see recorded scenes from that relationship and respond to them. Most of the scene will be cut, but I can use it elsewhere, and I HAD to know how everything played out before I could know how my POV character reacted to them - and that part was vital to the plot.

    Maybe, when you finish this draft, you'll discover you have enough raw material to write that prequel - and have a head start. =)

    May the rest of the summer treat you and yours kindly!
