Writer Recharge 2015: Update #3


It's that time again where I get to update on my writer goals for this month. I can't believe there is barely a week left in February! Here's how this week went.

My #WriterRecharge Goals
  • WRITE/REVISE 
    • Complete revision of Follow the Moon
      • I have no finished this revision yet and it's driving me crazy. This is my main priority this week. I put the latest revision on my Nook and we'll see how this goes! I feel like I'm SO CLOSE! 
    • Work on finding the "voice" for Prairie Dust
      • I found it! I found it! I read through different scenes that I wrote and there it was! I even doubled my word count. 
    • Write a critique letter for next revision project
      • I also have this on my Nook so I'm going to do this. We'll see how this goes. 
    • Complete revision on short story
      • I sent the second half to my critique group and got their comments back. In the past five years, their comments had never touched me quite like these. I've been struggling so much so maybe that has something to do with it! 
  • READ/REREAD 
    • Work on Course Weeks 2-5 in The Artist's Way
      • I'm on Week 5! I can't recommend this book enough and I'm not even halfway through it. 
    • Read one adult book
      • I did... and left it unfinished. It was by one of my favorite authors and it was a departure from what she usually writes. I couldn't get into it. Does that count? I'm doing my best to get through library books and there are no other adults ones in the pile. 
    • Find a new comic book to read (besides Spider-Gwen)
      • A friend recommended Young Avengers to me so I'll start that this week!
    • Finish library loans and begin reading books on nightstand
      • I'm so close!
  • STRETCH 
    • Hiking! I went with my local SCBWI group this week on a five mile hike near my house. It was a little overcast, but that kept it cool!
  • SELF
    • I'm on the second part of my push-up challenge and I'm noticing a difference in my arms! 
  • FUN
    • My costume for Spider-Gwen is coming along. I did research on it this past week and now I need to start purchasing items. My husband is working on his Miles Morales mask so we'll be doing my soon. He's testing out different materials for the eyes so we can see. 
Over the past few weeks, I've learned what I make a priority and what I don't. This week that is one of my silent goals is to make sure that I don't let things get in the way. It's so easy to do!

Good luck to my fellow Rechargers!
