How I did on last week’s goals
Finish revising chapter 2 and revise chapter 3. Send chapters 1-3 to my CPs for some initial feedback. Keep revising chapters!
I completed everything! I sent off my first 3 chapters to my CPs because I’m itching for feedback, and I’m in the middle of revising chapter 4. This will be the first time anyone’s read from this manuscript, so I hope my CPs like it!
My goal(s) for this week
Revise at least 3 more chapters and finish the memoir I started reading as research for this manuscript.
One word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
I’m making progress, bird by bird! I printed out my manuscript before starting this revision, so I’ve been revising each chapter by hand first. Then I transfer the changes to my Scrivener document, where I read it through and make more changes before moving onto the next chapter. This system has been working well for me so far.
The biggest challenge I faced this week
Figuring out how to authentically portray a brain injury survivor (my main character’s mother). I’ve done a lot of research and talked to a psychologist friend, so I hope I can pull this off!
Something I love about my WiP
I’m enjoying exploring the relationship between my main character and her mother. Lots of feels, guys. Lots of feels.
