Happy Sunday everyone! Sorry for the late posting. I’ve been binge watching Game of Thrones (yes, I’m late on this) and it completely slipped my mind last night that I had posting to prep. I’m sorry I didn’t watch this sooner. Now I’m interested in reading George R.R. Martin’s books.
Speaking of books…let’s see how I did with my own writing last week.
1) LAST WEEK’S GOALS:
*Continue working on Worth the Fight. This week’s goal is to add 11,291 words to give me a grand total of 29,361. Surpassed it! I’m at 33,751 words!
*Continue planning Finding Me. Started writing a synopsis.
*Re-read Rebel: the Alliance Chronicles, Book Four. It’s done and with the formatter! I’m pushing for an August 1st release date.
2) THIS WEEK’S GOALS:
*Continue working on Worth the Fight. This week’s goal is to add 11,291 words to give me a grand total of 45,042. In a perfect world, I’ll finish the draft this week. We shall see.
*Finish planning Finding Me. This will be my rough draft project for August/September.
3) A FAVORITE LINE OR PASSAGE FROM MY STORY THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED:
He moves his head from side to side as he purses his lips. “No. I keep nothing from you. Angel, you get all of me. No halfway shit between us.”
The words he needs to hear… The words he deserves to hear dangle on my tongue, but I’m too scared to say them. My reality has always been men, both human and supernatural, leave me behind. Hank could be just another name on the list, but I sure hope to hell he’s not. Instead of speaking, I cling to him tighter. We stand there supporting each other while the world spins by. Our fears too strong to walk away. Our darker sides too overpowering to allow us to move forward.
This is the end of an emotional scene between Hank and Edwina. She made the mistake of telling him she heard his thoughts. He said something he shouldn’t have and she jumped out of the car. Hank caught up with her and apologized.
4) THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED LAST WEEK:
The age old problem of staying focused. My mind was torn in numerous directions–writing Worth the Fight, planning Finding Me, watching Game of Thrones, and reading Charlaine Harris’s Midnight Crossroad (I’m reading it in preparation of watching NBC’s Midnight, Texas coming on the 24th) and Elise Kova’s The Alchemists of Loom. Added to that daunting list of tasks was doing the final read-through on Rebel. Of course, life jumped up with family obligations.
There’s no easy way to stay on task when you have a list of challenges. I’m doing what I can as I can. The read-through was finished. I made considerable progress with my writing and reading Kova’s book.
How do you handle a platter full of tasks? Drop me a line and let me know.
5) SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WIP:
I absolutely love how the world of Falls Creek lends to other stories. Just writing Worth the Fight unearthed another potential set of stories, The Devereaux Witches. I could be writing paranormal romance stories for quite some time. LOL!
How I’m feeding my soul this week…
I’m still reading Elise Kova’s The Alchemists of Loom. I also have Charlaine Harris’s book to dive into. Finally (is that a true word for me?), I have three more episodes in Season 2 of Game of Thrones and then it’s on to Season 3.
That’s all for now.
