RSW: Update 9

RSWgoldpolaroidI skipped a couple weeks, so I’m skipping from update 7 to update 9. After everything that happened with my cat and babysitting my nieces and general WIP fatigue and hot weather malaise, I really needed a break. I spent the past couple weeks ignoring my WIP, so I am hoping to come back to it this week with a fresh perspective! Since I didn’t write last week, I’m just going to make a goal for this week.

2.  My goal(s) for this week.

My WIP is currently at 49,707. I am not sure if 60,000 words will be the golden number to finish it, since I feel like there is still quite a bit of story left, but I’m sticking to that number anyway. This week I’d like to write 5,000 words, with a goal of finishing my WIP draft next week.

Did you have a good writing week? Accomplish any goals this week?

    Ugh. I hear you on that hot weather malaise. That’s been a major challenge for me lately too. Hope you’re feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your writing goals this week! Good luck with that next 5k and finishing your draft!

      Thank you! I still miss my Neville, but the grief has mostly subsided. He’s in a better place now. He was in a lot of pain toward the end of his life, and it seemed like everything we did to try to help him and mitigate the pain just made things worse for him. Still so sad to lose him, though.
