HOW I DID ON LAST WEEK’S GOALS
Revise the scene where Jules and Jesse fight in the hall
Write/revise scenes up to (and including) her hanging out at Roller’s with her brother and his friends
Sorta. I ended up rearranging the order of a few scenes so I never got to the Roller’s part. Note: Roller’s is a pizza place in my imaginary town. The food sucks, but there’s a game room.
MY GOALS FOR THIS WEEK
Write the cafeteria scene
Write the second softball game scene
Try to work on the scenes before the party
A FAVORITE LINE FROM MY STORY OR ONE WORD/PHRASE THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED
“Maybe we…” I didn’t know what I was trying to say, but whatever it was the words wouldn’t leave my mouth. They refused.
THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED THIS WEEK
I spent an hour working in a minor plot point. The next day I spent an hour taking it out because I realized it didn’t work. #writerproblems
And then there was my whole mini freakout when I couldn’t figure out what the hell was supposed to happen next. I had all these scenes, but the pacing felt screwy. I wanted things to escalate to the point of no return and it just wasn’t happening. BUT after rambling to my husband while he politely nodded to pretend he was listening, I *think* I’ve got it.
SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WiP
My main character, Jules, is infuriatingly impulsive, but that also means she lives in the moment.
