It's the first YA Buccaneers Spring Writing Bootcamp check in for May and yes, I'm a day late - but only because I was tagged by the ever awesome Kathryn Holmes to participate in the My Writing Process blog hop that's been going around -- and my post went up yesterday. You can read it here -- or, yanno, just scroll down one more on my blog.
Everyone is saying this and I have to agree: I can't believe it's already May. We've covered two months already in our Spring Writing Bootcamp and so much has been accomplished by all! But...we've got one more month to go, so batten down those hatches, man the torpedoes, and hang on to your boot straps! Because we pirates have LOTS in store for you!
MY MAY GOALS:
- My birthday is coming up this Thursday, so my goal for the first day of May is to just ENJOY THE DAY!
UPDATE: My birthday was wonderful! Born and raised in Seattle, I've never been to the top of the Space Needle...but my husband changed that on my birthday! AND! it was sunny and 85 degrees!
- New WIP NOTG writing goal:
Minimum of 10,000 words for the month.
- Continue to read / finish CP's MS!
UPDATE: I finished my second read through on one of my CP's newest manuscripts last night and am compiling the notes to email her today - be on the lookout, Heidi!
Also, 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*
Red rover, red rover, send your manuscripts on over!
- Host / participate in a Word Sprint or two!
- Same goal as April: Cheer on the awesome that is Team Rainier!
- Read 5 books minimum.
UPDATE: One book down (Heidi's MS) and 4 more to go!
