Hello everyone.

First of all, thanks so much for the warm welcome to this lovely community of writers. I really enjoyed getting to know many of you but due to time I couldn’t comment on some blogs I stopped by to read. I will try my best, between the children naptime, to respond to all your comments and stop by your blogs to say hello.


For those who are interested in the link up:

Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer writing intensive that encourages goal-setting and accountability, and provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on wherever we’re at in our writing—planning, drafting, revising, or polishing. This year, your RSW hosts are Alison Miller, Jaime Morrow, Erin Funk, and Katy Upperman. Find the rest of the details HERE.

How I did on last week’s goals

I wanted to do 2000 words research for my WIP, I managed to get about 1600 wds down

My goal(s) for this week

My aim this week is to do more 2000wds research for the story. Develop the character even more. 

A favourite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised

“You’re your own saviour.” That’s what my mother always tells me.

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

Finding time to research and write was very challenging. From Thursday until Saturday we were camping. Before that I had to wash clothes and get us ready. Yesterday had to go food shopping and meet up with some friends. But I’m happy to say that baby boy is getting into a bedtime routine so I’m going to work more after he goes to bed in the evening and try to go to bed early and try to wake up early to write some more.

Something I love about my WIP

It’s rekindling my love for cultural history. Also after completing Wasting Away this story tis pushing itself onto me. It wants to be told; I’m scared and excited me to see where it will lead itself.


Question: How was your week

Have a great one. Please leave me a note so I can stop by to say hello. Also I’m looking for a CP so if you’re interested teaming up please let’s me know.

Have a great week

    Welcome! This is such a great group, and I'm excited to have you be a part of it. Have a wonderful, productive week!

  2. Nice work on your writing goals amidst the work of raising a family. No small feat! You are an inspiration, and I don't say that lightly.

  3. Welcome to RSW! I love books about cultural history.

  4. I like the words you shared this week, Toi! Good luck with your research this week! Oh, and welcome to RSW! :-)

  5. Love this link up idea! My writing has dried up since I finished my novel. I can't even begin to think about writing another one so it's awesome to hear that you are making that leap.

  6. It's so great to see that you're so passionate about what you're writing. Sometimes setting goals can make it feel so much like work, but it's nice to remember that you write because you LOVE to. Have a great week!

    Those little things (laundry, grocery shopping, etc.) always take up so much time. At this very moment I'm procrastinating and avoiding a few cleaning-related things :)
    Good luck with your goals this week and enjoy your research.

  15. Thank you Prerna. We had a great time at the campsite.

  16. It was a busy week but enjoyable. I really hope I can get more done over the weekend. have a lovely weekend

  17. Laundry, grocery shopping and cleaning doubles after a holiday, but it's good to go away from the routine sometimes. I hope your week is good
