I am so (so, so, so) glad RSW is back again. I don't know what it is, but something about this summer writing intensive works magic on me. Last year I managed to finish the first draft of a manuscript that was really dragging me down, and in 2013 I finished a big revision of my much-loved-but-sadly-shelved MS FATE AND OTHER GAMES, as well as starting the rewrite that eventually became the manuscript I'm querying now. I'm sending vibes to the universe to bring me that magic again this summer, because I really need to get my shit together. Come on, kid: do it.
My overall goal for Ready. Set. WRITE! 2015 is to finish the first draft of my punk girl band manuscript. That's all. That's easy.
(Say it enough, and my brain will start to believe it, right?)
Right now I have 44k and so many scenes cluttering my head. It's the getting them from my head to the screen that's proving just a little bit of a problem. So, with that in mind, let's get to it.

My goal(s) for this week:
Write 2000 words. (Not too crazy, but 1: I am seemingly incapable of writing at the moment, and 2: My parents are moving house this week, and I happen to live with my parents, therefore I am also moving house this week. But I can do this.)

Here's hoping that this is the beginning of a summer filled with so many words, for all of us.
