HOW I DID ON LAST WEEK'S GOALS
I figured out the backstory and it helped me figure out some things in the main plot. I also did a bit of writing just to get the creative juices flowing. I still have more planning to do and some things to figure out before I officially start writing again but it feels good to have gotten what I wanted to do last week, finished (for the most part).
MY GOALS FOR THIS WEEK
Finish my note-taking. Answer any of the remaining questions I have about characters, plot etc. I also want to start thinking about how I want this story to end. I think that having an ending scene to work towards will motivate me to finish this even more.
A FAVORITE LINE FROM MY STORY OR ONE WORD/PHRASE THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED
"Before the night is out," she whispered, watching as one of the royal servants helped her father's new bride out of the carriage. "I'll have another heart for you, mother."
THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED THIS WEEK
Staying focused. I've been getting a lot of SNIs lately (because this always happens when I try to stick to one WIP). I'm really trying my hardest not to let myself get distracted so hopefully I'll be able to fight off any new character that pops into my head.
SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WIP
The diversity. When I decided to write this story, I wanted it to reflect our world culturally. While the places in the story that are inspired by different countries and continents don't match our map (and it's a whole lot smaller), I like being able to piece together different parts of our world to make up a new one.
I hope everyone had a productive week. Good luck with this one!
