RSW Progress Report 8/24/15

I believe this is the second to last week of RSW, and I’m kind of sad because this has been so much fun!

How I did on last week’s goals:

I did pretty well, actually.

~Finish edit job DONE!
~Finish rough draft of Changeling 3 DONE and revised!
~Read and review short story for TDP member DONE!
~SOMETHING RELATED TO WRITING OR ACTUAL WRITING, no word count goals, just something! DONE! 997 words on Fireborn, came up with a plan for the end. Put together a plan* for the next 6 months or so of writing projects.

*I’m shifting my focus to shorter works, i.e. novellas, longish short stories, and shorter novels. I think I would gain more traction by having more things out there. Novels take me years to write and revise; novellas and shorter novels would take less time. (In theory, anyways 😉  )  So that is my plan. I gave myself rough deadlines for each thing (4 total to start with) plus 7 “floating” projects — projects I can pick up as alternates if I’m having issues or am not inspired to write a certain one when its time. I have no idea how this will go — it’s my first time setting actual deadlines of my own and not writing 130k novels. So, time will tell.

This week’s goals:

~Get to halfway or thereabouts on editing job
~WRITE something, anything! Can be small, as I don’t want to get behind on the editing

Editing will take up most of my time, so that’s why there are few goals. I work a day job, so I have to fit everything in and sometimes I get strapped for time!

A favorite line from my story OR a word or phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised: FINALLY. I got words! And a plan!

The biggest challenge I faced this week (ie finding time to write, getting sick, having writer’s block, etc) Motivation and focus. Still having issues. 😦

Something I love about my WIP: That I’m on track again and am nearly done writing it (technically).

How did you do?
