It’s February, which means it’s time for Writer Recharge!
Once again hosted by Katy Upperman, Alison Miller, Liz Parker, Elodie Nowodazkij, and Sara Biren, Writer Recharge is your chance for a four-week jump start in the middle of a cold, dreary winter. Set goals for yourself, check in once a week, and connect with other recharging writers.
This year, we’ve come up with a few categories you might want to consider when making your goals. You can choose a goal (or goals) for one or some or all.
Last week I was on page 28 of EMMA. This week I’m on page…
I might make my monthly goal of 50 at this rate.
I’ve also got another goal I forgot to mention in my first post – I need to send out some queries for JULES. I’m aiming for somewhere between 5 and 10 before the end of February.
I plan to start RUBY RED by Kerstin Gier this week for the #rubyredreread, although in my case it’s actually a #rubyredfirstread
For my goal of romance books, I’ve got ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER by Stephanie Perkins. I’ll reserve judgment until the end, but on the positive side I’ll say that I like SP’s writing style and she always has such sweet little moments between the leads. I also like best-friend Kurt because he says the things I’m thinking. And thoughts I have. Mainly about YA pet peeves of mine, but I won’t bore you with those ;).
I still have to run up that giant hill. I was planning to do it this past weekend, but the weather decided to be a jerk with its below zero temps and crazy high winds. I could have theoretically done it during the week, but there’s a school at the top of the hill and I didn’t want to be a weirdo scaring children as I screamed in victory outside the building.
In other related stretch-goals, I’m thinking about doing #PitMad next month. Has anyone done it before? I’d love any tips you might have.
My West Virginia drive has also been put on hold until the weather decides to play nice. Nature isn’t as much fun when you can’t even roll down the window for fresh air without freezing your face off.
Proofing some school-related stuff for the little bro
Aforementioned bro and I watched THEY LIVE and it was glorious, especially the fight scene that kept going and going and going. Even better that it was choreographed like a WWE match so the majority of punches/kicks were nowhere near the other person.
The best part, though, was my dad looking at the TV screen and saying, “I’ve seen this movie before.”
My dad then insisted I had seen it before, too, when I was a kid. Have I??? And, if so, how could I have forgotten???
