What up, Week 6! Summer is killing me, in that, it’s summer — I have no work ethic. None.
I did work on my manuscript, just not enough to make a dent. I’m editing the first act, so I’m not adding to my word count, which makes me feel like I’m spinning my wheels. But, I did write an essay and sell it to a paying market. So, there’s that. I actually made some money. Woot!
My goal(s) for this week
I was so hoping to get this book to my beta readers. So, that’s my goal.
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
Autumn dangled her legs over the edge of the pier and swung them to and fro like a small child. She squinted into the bright rays of the setting sun. Liam sat beside her, his legs bent and his hands splayed behind him. At first they were both quiet, just watching the fishing boats coming in from the afternoon catch. Liam felt like a young boy when Pops would take him out on the boat. Except instead of being mesmerized by dolphins, he kept staring at Autumn’s legs.
The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write)
My baby girl has been going to bed at 9:30 every night, making it near impossible to write. We have the same bedtime. WTF. Teething.
Something I love about my WIP
I love the character arcs. My characters show real emotional growth. I’m proud of them.
