Ready. Set. WRITE. Week 4 Back to Normal

How I did on last week’s goals:
As you've probably noticed I didn't post any goals last week.  So reporting today, I can positively say, I accomplished my goals!  Yay...I think. As some of you may not have known I was in TN for the last couple of weeks visiting my family. Guys, my mother made it near impossible to write. She interrupted me every five minutes with the most trivial things. (Interruptions kill the creative flow.)  But she missed me, and it showed, so you can't fault her for that. 

My goal(s) for this week:
1. Work on revisions for my novel, SOUTH OF SUNSHINE, currently on submission. Great feedback from editors has given us the opportunity to make minor changes to strengthen my story before we send it out again.  Cross your fingers.
2. Write 2500 words on WIP summer romance.
3. Continue to make scene notes on summer romance

A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised.
Proud.  As I'm doing revisions on my LGBT romance SOUTH OF SUNSHINE, I couldn't be prouder of what I've written. As I've said a thousand times, I believe in my story.  Not only that, but it was the first story where I finally believed in my writing. So yeah, proud sums it up.    

The biggest challenge I faced this week.
Not being home. Between TN and ALA in Vegas, it's nice to be home. You don't realize how much you value your writing time or writing space until you don't have it.  Being home makes my goals so much more attainable. 

Something I love about my WiP.
The fact it's something new.  There's nothing more exciting than getting to finally work on the shiny new idea.  There's so many aspects of what I love about my WIP that I'll share along the way, but today, I love the newness of  the story, the characters and diving into new world you can't wait to explore yourself.

  2. It was great to see you at ALA. I did a spit take when I read about your mom interrupting you. Mine is from Kentucky, so I'm sure they are on similar operating systems.
