Ready, Set Write! July 6, 2015

Okay, so I skipped updating last week due to all the stress.  Yay stress!

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.

1.  How I did on last week’s goals:

We found a condo to move to so my writing took a bit of a backseat while I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to organize myself for the fact that moving is actually reality now and happening much sooner than I am prepared for.  

I did get a couple hundred words out though and I rocked the water drinking.  

2.  My goal(s) for this week:

  • Get 1500 words on my WIP.
  • Start purging my books
  • drink more water
  • get boxes for packing
  • organize my son to go out west

3.  A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:

One word that sums up what I wrote this week is "iffy" as I am not sure if it's not just going to be tossed come time for revision.

4.  The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write):

I am not sure that my head was really in the writing over the last week as I was all in a panic over things becoming a reality with moving.  I am much calmer this week with a plan of action even though I liked it better as an eventuality.

5.  Something I love about my WiP:

I love that I am working on it and I don't completely hate it .  


  1. Yay stress is right. I'm there with you on that one. :-/ Last week was kind of a write-off for me too all thanks to stress. Hope this week is better for both of us! Congrats on finding a condo and still managing to get words in despite the busyness. Good luck with this week's goals!

  2. Oh boy, do I ever relate to your moving stresses. We just moved across the country a month ago and things are still in a state of chaos for us. Hope everything goes smoothly with your move and that somewhere in there you'll find some inspiration and time for writing! :)

  3. Last time I moved, I didn't write for about a month. Too much stress, too much to do, etc. The writing will come back. Awesome that you were able to write a bit. ;)

  4. Here's summore illustrious, ingenious, incisive scenarios
    which'll give you a first-rate, fast-paced, unexpectedly vivid,
    utterly tangible, lethal ‘quid-pro-quo-protagonist' @ warp-speed:

    High, girl!
    While I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
    you shall find in our 24 blogs a gobba (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this mortal sinner yeeeeers to compile:
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear - neet, packaged, concise.

    Nevertheless, wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no
    with an IQ much higher than K2,
    and an extraordinarily, sawcy, rowdy victory??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with an excellent bullshot dectector):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love -
    jump into faith...
    and you'll see with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a passionate, prolific iconoclasm where you’ll find
    astronomically prodigious,
    immeasurably extensive,
    monumentally tremendous,
    stupendously substantial,
    infinitely irresistible,
    (XnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX… )
    deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House.
