HOW I DID ON LAST WEEK’S GOALS

  • Drink more water than anything. Doc’s orders, plus it’s good for me. And tea is mostly water, right? – Not bad, I averaged 5-6 glasses of water per day. And LOTS of tea. 😀
  • Get at least 1,000 words on the WIP. – 604 words 
  • Revise five pages of the short story. – 3 pages revised
  • Get decent sleep. – NOPE

MY GOAL(S) FOR THIS WEEK

  • Keep up the water
  • 500 words on the WIP
  • Send short story to readers
  • 10:30 p.m. bedtime

A FAVORITE LINE FROM MY STORY

I try to get back to my dream but it’s as wispy as the cottonwood falling outside. Even so, I can’t shake the feeling of being kissed and touched in places I never imagined by someone I never thought possible.

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED THIS WEEK

SOMETHING I LOVE FROM MY WIP

My MC, Sam. She is flawed and complicated and infuriating and loveable all at once. And I wouldn’t change her one bit.

  1. Hahaha! That gif is so scary looking! And so accurate for when I’m sick. Like today. 😛 Good work on the water! I gave up soda to drink more water and then I got sick, so the Sprite is back in the house. Have a great week!

    But yay to all the water and tea! And the new words and revised pages!

    I like your lines, they made my mind think all the swoony/dirty thoughts 🙂

    1. Almost normal, or at least my version of it. The horrible hacking cough is subsiding so bonus! Thanks for the encouragement. I’m so glad you swooned right into the gutter. 😀
