Hello everyone.

Welcome come back to another week of RSW, hope your week was productive.


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 found it hard to write throughout the week. I was going to give up on my research but I finally managed to get the 2000 wds down. I couldn’t develop the characters. While I was struggling to get my research done, I revised my novel Wasting Away and sent a query to QUERYDRILL for their feedback.

My goal(s) for this week

This week I want to go to the library to consult some historical books and complete my research so I can prepare myself to write the fictional part of my WIP. 

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

Nothing. – I did the research but I didn’t write anything fictional.

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

Finding time is my biggest challenging. I have time during the day, but not enough to put my mind to work. I’m having limited time sleep and that affects my thought process.

Something I love about my WIP

The vision of the world my characters live in is so vivid.

This is me.


How was your week?

Have a great one. Please leave me a note so I can stop by to say hello.

Have a great week


  1. Loving the new blog look. Glad you were able to get at least 2000 words down. It is hard to find time to write when you have two young kids. That is my struggle right now.

  2. Big deal that you submitted to query drill. I had never heard of them and I checked it out online but would still be nervous about submitting at this point.

  3. I hope querydrill is all kinds of helpful! I've never heard of it so I'm curious to see how you feel about it after you get feedback! Also, 2000 words - fictional or not - is incredible! And it's definitely better than nothing at all! Go you!
    But I hear you on the time thing. Sometimes it is really hard to get started. I often stare at a blank doc for a long time before I type anything. But you can do it! I hope you have another productive week!

  4. Being tired definitely affects how I function too. I do most of my writing at night, and if I'm tired, my creativity level is close to zilch! But 2K this week is great- progress is progress is progress! ;)

    research most definitely counts as progress, and 2k is nothing to be ashamed of. I'll have to look into querydrill once I have mine done. Good luck this week! PS: I do have a CP, but am always on the look out for more if you ever want to exchange pages. my e-mail is prernapickett at yahoo dot com


Yes, I L*O*V*E them and look forward to receive great advice and encouragement. Let me know you are here, just write hi :)
