Happy Sunday! It’s miserably hot here in Atlanta. Thankfully, the A/C was repaired and we’ve been keeping cool. I have an author takeover this week (7/25) for Tricia Copeland from 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. EDT:
She’s giving away a Kindle Fire 7. You’ll want to join the party and then enter on the party page link.
Let’s see how I slayed my goals 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 45,042. In a perfect world, I’ll finish the draft this week. We shall see. Done! I finished on Friday evening with 50,002 words.
*Finish planning Finding Me. This will be my rough draft project for August/September. I’m still planning. The rough draft date has been set for the month of September.
2) THIS WEEK’S GOALS:
*Start revising Delivering Sin by Nadirah Foxx.
*Continue planning Finding Me.
*I also have a tentative short story for an anthology to work on. I’d like to start planning it.
3) A FAVORITE LINE OR PASSAGE FROM MY STORY THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED:
“You becoming my mate bonded us. It was an act that satisfied my beast, but the man in me wants something more. I love you with every fiber of my soul, Edwina Marie Devereaux. The night I realized you were special to me there was a blood moon. I want the world to know you are mine. Do me the honor of wearing my ring. Be my wife from here into eternity.” [Hank Richards, Worth the Fight]
This is Hank’s proposal to Edwina. I enjoy writing professions of love. How do I know I’ve written a good one? When my daughter says she wants to meet a man like that.
4) THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED LAST WEEK:
Keeping momentum going. Thankfully, I’m nearly done with the publishing for 2017. There will be one last book, the Nadirah Foxx title, and then no more until 2018. Writing Worth the Fight was totally unplanned, but I enjoyed the project. Toward the end, my mind was ready for a break.
5) SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WIP:
I love the happy ending I gave Edwina and Hank. A romance story isn’t much of one, in my opinion, if there isn’t an HEA. It’s how each one is crafted that makes each one interesting.
How I’m feeding my soul this week…
I’m almost done reading Elise Kova’s The Alchemists of Loom. I also have Charlaine Harris’s book to dive into. I just started Season 4 of Game of Thrones.
That’s all for now.
