Welcome to Ready. Set. WRITE! If you’re wondering what RSW is all about, it’s a summer long writing intensive with the purpose of writing, revising, planning, and keeping each other accountable. We will be sharing our goals on Mondays, keeping our posts BRIEF (2-3 lines per heading) so we can spend more time on writing and less time on blogging. You can sign up at any of the host blogs (Alison‘s,Katy‘s, Erin‘s, Jaime’s) every Monday. And don’t forget to hop around to encourage other participants. For more info about RSW and a link to their super fun buttons, go here.
 How I did on last week’s goals

I wrote about 5k - not my goal. I had planned on at least 10k. But work, the kids, my husband's broke foot all took me away...

My goal(s) for this week
Write 10K on current WIP, Enlighten Me. Start to edit other WIP, The Awakening.
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
With a sideways glance at my tingling arm, the same slimy green color skated up my left hand. It wrapped itself around my wrist, twisted itself past my elbow… Shit, I’m turning into the Incredible Hulk.
The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write)
Balance...it's always balance. The "juggle" is real people.
 Something I love about my WIP
The raw emotion...and humor. Who knew I could be funny and serious?


  1. This sounds like a fun challenge! I hope you reach all your goals this summer. And I love that line from your WIP: so visual and intriguing. I have "Finding Me" all loaded on my Kindle and can't wait to read it. I'm thinking that once my baby gets here and I get settled into motherhood, I'll finally have some space in my head to start reading again (I hope!).

  2. I love humor, no matter what the story is. Every story needs some comic relief. ;)

  3. Ooh! I love it when you get a mesh of silly and serious. That rings so true to life for me.


Please share your thoughts. We promise not to stone you for it.
