Ready, Set, Write: June 8, 2015

Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer writing intensive that provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on wherever we’re at in our writing—planning, drafting, or revising. This year, RSW is being hosted by Alison MillerKaty UppermanErin FunkElodie Nowodazkij, and of course,  Jamie Morrow which is how I found it.

Today is goal setting day!  Yay!  So here are my goals for this summer:

1) Crank out 1500 words a week on my current WIP.

2) Finish off that side project I am working on so that it's not distracting me.

3) Get up early and work out 3 times a week.

4) Get my review posts up on my blog in a timely manner.

Starting next Monday I will be updating you guys every week on my progress every week. Which will follow the headlines below:

1.  How I did on last week’s goals
2.  My goal(s) for this week
3.  A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
4.  The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write)
5.  Something I love about my WiP

I am super excited by this idea, I need the push to MAKE the time to write more.


  1. Good luck on your summer goals! I also seriously need to work on getting up much earlier, and in turn going to bed a lot earlier than I've fallen into the awful habit of.

  2. Ugh, getting up early is the hardest part with working out! However, we did find that working out early in the day and getting it over with is the BEST way to make sure that you get exercising done and over with! Good luck with all of your goals :)

  3. Good luck! I should add a couple of the things you mention to my list!

  4. Impressive goals! Both the waking up early (it's so much easier for me to stay up late and get up normally than wake up earlier) and the keeping track of the blogs... Best of luck to you on those and all your goals.

  5. You can doooo it :) I am also trying to work out in the morning. We can cheer each other on for that too :) Glad you're joining us!

  6. Haha! I like how you want to finish a project that's distracting you instead of putting it to the side to avoid the distraction. Sometimes that's the best way to actually remove a distraction. =) Good luck with your goals!

  7. Totally know what you mean about distracting side projects. I feel like I can't really dig into my new WIP until I've finished edits on my old. I know I should be more efficient than that, but I just ... it's so hard!!! It's like my brain can only focus on one project at a time.
