RSW: 1st Check In!



Hey everyone!

How's it going?

I hope everyone met their goals for last week!

Here's how I did:

1. I didn't finish the chapter that I'm working on but I got really REALLY close. Hopefully I can finish it this week.

2. I managed to write every day and I managed to write a little over 100 words today which I'm excited about.


My goals for this week: 

Get this chapter written and move on to the next one. I know what happens I just need to get the scenes out of my head and turn them into words.

A favorite line from my story OR a word or phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised

The magic that she came into this world with was calling to her; calling to her the way it had done many times bef0re - in a quiet hum that matched every beat of her heart.

The biggest challenge that I faced this week:

Finding time to write. I managed to get some words in everyday but it was hard because I'm studying for the LSATs and going to work and trying to workout and find time to sleep and I know doing all of that and writing is possible. It's just difficult.

Something I love about my WIP

I took some time to wordbuild because I have been reading a lot of fantasy books lately mainly the Throne of Glass series. I finished Heir of Fire recently which I LOVED and it inspired me to delve deeper into Unfair's world and I learned so much about the culture in different parts of the world my story is set in, different religions, and myths that are important. I love just being able to use my imagination. It makes me feel like a kid again.

Okay, enough about me. How'd you guys do?

I'll get to everyone's posts when I get home from work.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I'm terrible at world-building- it's my kryptonite! I even started a YA fantasy novel and had to quit because I hadn't done enough. Ergh. Sounds like you've got yours nailed down!
    Good luck with your goals this week!

  2. Okay, you're incredible! I can't believe you were able to squeeze in any writing at all while you're working AND studying for the LSATs. I say just about making your goal counts. Good luck with everything you have on the go and getting your chapter done this week! Also, I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed HEIR OF FIRE and found it inspirational. Sarah J. Maas is a writing goddess.

  8. "calling to her the way it had done many times before - in a quiet hum that matched every beat of her heart." Love this! So lyrical. I also like the sound of your WIP - a Snow White retelling not from her POV? Yes, please!

    Good luck with writing and with finding balance this week!

    P.S. Sorry if this comment shows up a trillion times, I'm in an epic battle with Blogger to prove I'm not a robot. I am now at the point where I'm furiously pushing the "publish" button and shouting, "I am not a machine!"
