*** I made it to the second round of Red Light / Green Light – yay! I’d love your votes if you have a minute. My line begins, “I locked myself in the bathroom stall…” and voting ends tonight at 11:59. Thanks 🙂 ***
How I did on last week’s goals
Start on LOVE IS A MIX TAPE by Rob Sheffield – YES! I’m only a few chapters in but I’m already invested. I was a music-loving teen in the 90s (when many of the book’s events took place), in Virginia (not far from where the bulk of the story is set).
Read A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER by Elodie Nowodazkij – YES! I loved, loved the main character, Emilia, and can’t wait for the next book.
My goal was to make forward progress and…
I FINALLY FINISHED THE CHAPTER I STARTED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SUMMER!!!
Okay, sorry about the caps, but they felt warranted.
My goals for this week
Finish LOVE IS A MIX TAPE, start on FALLEN ANGELS by Walter Dean Myers
I have the next chapter roughly written and I want to polish it up, as well as reading through the chapter after that, which may need some tweaking.
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
“Dad…” I hesitated, knowing how lame it was to not only bail on a party but to call him to come get me.
The biggest challenge I faced this week
No one thing in particular, just general real-life busyness
Something I love about my WIP
My main character’s dad and how he’s always there for her.
