Writer Recharge: Update 2

WriterRecharge 2015

Two weeks in and I’m doing okay. Could be better, but making progress even if it’s not on what I thought my goals should be. (For details on how Writer Recharge works, click HERE.) Here’s the breakdown of what that I accomplished this week:

Write/Rewrite: Awaiting feedback from my CPs who are reading my revision of WISHES TO NOWHERE. And I sent the list of changes to my Pitch Wars mentor, who loved the ideas so I’m feeling good about what I’ve done to this story. As for writing, I did not make much word count progress on my WIP. I wanted to write 2,000 words this week, but I realized I still had some character development that will be key to the story (it’s centered on a scavenger hunt so the other teams in the hunt will be vital to the plot in places, so I need to know who these characters are). I managed to get those characters planned as well as maybe 500 words this week, so not a total fail.

Read: I started reading Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer this week. Not very far in yet, but I’m really enjoying it. I hope to finish it this week.

Self: I worked out five days this week. Even though the two 14-day challenges I’m doing aren’t long workouts, I feel better for doing them every day.

Fun: I go get my new tattoo on Thursday!!! (Oh, wait, was that too much enthusiasm? Will it make my other goals feel bad? *reins it in*) Everyone’s comments about how much they like the tattoo idea made me even more excited about getting it. So, thank you! ❀ Feeling empowered and unselfconscious as I go into the week. I will post a photo in next week’s update.

Okay, that’s it. Hope y’all have a great week!

  1. Ooh, I’ve heard great things about Belzhar. I hope you’ll let us know what you think. And yay for your new tattoo! I think lots of enthusiasm is warranted. Have a fantastic week, Susan!

  2. I’m in the same boat with the whole character development thing. I think I need to spend more time on that. Can’t wait to see pics of your tattoo! Have a great week, Susan! πŸ˜€

    • I love figuring out new things about my characters as I write, but I can’t start until I have a good foundation! Good luck with getting to know your characters too! πŸ™‚

  3. Sometimes the character development really helps to have words pouring out right after I unlock one or two secrets they had kept inside. πŸ˜› And yay, looking forward to seeing the new tattoo!

    • Thanks! I feel like challenges are easier for me to stick to b/c I have a short-term goal to work toward! Then I can keep up the momentum once I get going. I can’t imagine a whole plank challenge though. These side planks are killing me. πŸ˜‰

    • Ooh, good to know you enjoyed the book. I’m liking it a lot so far. And good luck with working out. I’m glad I’m doing it again, but it’s definitely no my first choice of activities! πŸ™‚
