How I did on last week’s goals:
I found titles for my remaining YA Buccaneers Reading Challenge squares. Not surprisingly I was able to pull matches off my overflowing TBR-shelf.
Still taking a break for contests. Right now I’m doing Red Light / Green Light and I made it to the second round! They accidentally posted the voting link a week early and thank you to those who voted during the short period it was live.
The official link goes up Wednesday and I’ll post it on Twitter 🙂
I’m also considering submitting for Pitch Wars because it sounds like a fantastic opportunity. Any thoughts or advice from those who’ve submitted?
I read through what I have for EMMA and made a few tweaks which removed a shaky plot element and everything about the story feels so much easier now.
My goals for this week:
I looked at my original goals because I really couldn’t remember them:
BOOKS – Read 10
I finished my 10th book this past week: THIS LULLABY by Sarah Dessen (I’m still reading my way through all her books although it will probably take me through the end of the year and not just the summer).
This week I want to start LOVE IS A MIX TAPE by Rob Sheffield for the non-fiction square of the YAB Reading Challenge.
I’m also about to read A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER by Elodie Nowodazkij
QUERIES – Send out 15
I’ve sent 9, but like I said above, queries are on hold and I think I’m just going to remove this category.
WRITE – 20 hours
I honestly have no idea how many hours I’ve managed. Maybe five? I’m going to revise my overall goal to just making forward progress on EMMA.
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
It was hard to tell if they were mad or happy because it all sounded the same with them.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
My hubby rescued a kitten the other week and I’ve been splitting my time between making new kitty feel welcome and reassuring established cats that they are still wanted and loved.
Something I love about my WIP
Everything at this moment 🙂
