Spring Writing Bootcamp Check-In #11


  1. Dinner: Quinoa & lime-marinated chicken bowl!
    Green Smoothie: Bee Gorgeous!Bikini Boot Camp Day #1:

    Because I evidently can't get enough of bootcamps, I decided to join For The Glow's Bikini Boot Camp this year. But instead of motivation for writing, this one's for my health - which in turn, makes for better writing, right? RIGHT! 
    It's six weeks of turning my diet around (I love kale!), getting a little exercise (burpees anyone?), being motivated by others, tracking it on Pinterest!, and overall, just doing good for this 'ole body of mine. I started eating clean(er) (I'm not vegan or vegetarian, but I am opting for gluten free around 95% of the time) and following the recipes a week ago to acclimate -- and aside from some of the ingredients being a little on the expensive side, I love everything I make (green smoothies, egg & kale breakfast scrambles, hummus = YUM!) and I definitely feel full and happy! 
    So be prepared for some great recipes / photos over the next 6 weeks -- after all, I've got my 20 year H.S. reunion in August and this girl plans on going with a lot less me! 
  2. New WIP NOTG writing goal: 
    Minimum of 10,000 words for the month.
    UPDATE: I'm at 5,103 words so far, a little over half way done for the month! 
  3. Continue to read / finish CP's MS!
    UPDATE: I finished and sent over notes on the last MS I was reading and now I'm waiting on TWO other CP's to send over manuscripts they said they'd be sending over. Eh-em. I'm waiting. Yep, still here. *cough*
    I'll sing it again in case you missed it last week: Red rover, red rover, send your manuscripts on over!
  4. Host / participate in a Word Sprint or two! 
  5. Cheer on the AWESOME that is Team Rainier!
    UPDATE: Did you all see Elizabeth Brigg's exciting cover reveal for her NA Contemporary MORE THAN MUSIC? Yes, that's it over there - but make sure to check it out here and enter to win some great prizes!
  6. Read 5 books minimum. 
    UPDATE: One book down (Heidi's MS) and 4 more to go!
