HOW I DID ON MY OVERALL GOALS
When I started RSW, I wanted to:
Finish JULES revision and send to readers for feedback
While I’m waiting, work on my EMMA rewrite
I DID get feedback on JULES (thank you, readers!) and I’ve started to incorporate that. I didn’t really get around to EMMA, but that’s okay.
For awhile, I was convinced I’d be able to finish JULES in time for PitchWars, but sadly it didn’t happen. I did, however, figure out the issue I was having, so YAY for that. I thought it was the end, but it was actually a spot in the middle that needed to be smoothed out.
My revision is moving in the right direction and I hope to have it done in the next few weeks. Because it’s almost my favorite season ever! Cooler weather and pretty leaves and nostalgia and all that other wonderful stuff that begs me to be outside.
A FAVORITE LINE FROM MY STORY OR ONE WORD/PHRASE THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED
Banging my head into a wall is pretty much what I did for half the summer, which is frustrating, but it’s kinda what I get for trying to force the words. Since I took a step back, the issues have become much clearer.
THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED THIS SUMMER
SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WiP
It sounds weird to say, but I love (and hate) that it’s gonna rip me apart emotionally. The early drafts did that to me, but I drifted away from some of the storyline because it WAS hard to write and I didn’t think I could do it. But I’m prepared to dive in and go where the story takes me, no matter how painful.
