Hello Weekend Writing Warriors. I’ll be taking a couple weeks off while I finish my latest WIP. I’ll be back soon.
For the first time in weeks, I made time for my WIP everyday. It might be because I can smell the finish line. It also might be because I had more time this week outside of all my other responsibilities. The finish line is most definitely within reach though and I want so badly to hit send.
Each time I read through this WIP, I fall in love with my characters all over again and I cannot wait to share them with you.
I know it would be a crime to hit send too soon.
Today or early this week, I hope to release it to my betas. I will keep myself busy with another WIP to clean my palate. Once I have the manuscript back, I’ll work my way through the findings and, when it’s ready, I will hit send, but not before it’s ready.
The Goals – week-7 results
- Spend at least 1-hour a day with my characters- done. 🙂
- Daily progress in writing craft, word count, editing, and/or plotting- very much done. I finished a read through. Reworked one of the love scenes and added a connection that I’d missed. I added over 2k. I’m so close.
- Take care of and be kind to myself (start w/ a relaxing ritual and daily breaks from technology)– not done. I had a good week, but as I get closer to hitting send, the pressure is getting greater to get this WIP right and it’s stressing me out. I need to figure out a way to work through it and relax each day.
