Summer is upon us and with that comes summer plans and summer TBRs and plans to go swimming or camping or gardening or start a new novel.
Hey, Katie. What are your plans for the summer?
So glad you asked!
In case you don’t know, 100-4-100 is a challenge hosted by Go Teen Writers in which you write 100 words every day for 100 days. It starts June 1st. You’re allowed to work on one project only (there are exceptions to this rule), with one grace day a week and one grace week for the entire challenge. I’ve done it a few times before and it really does help get through drafts.
2. Vacation Bible School
VBS is always fun. This year, I am working in crafts, where I will be explaining where the stickers go and that paper is not for eating.
Because LASER is not done yet. I hopefully will be getting it to betas within the next few weeks.
Editing does not translate well into 100-4-100.
I think I’m going to spend the last few days of May outlining this new novel and trying to figure out what the heck I’m doing with it because I am having a lot of trouble getting it started.
We’re going to do something scary and see how fast we can plot this thing using Cait’s method.
Why is it scary? Because 1. we are resorting to outlining at all, 2. it’s fabulous Cait plotting and while she is fabulous, this is her plotting and it may not work for me (because I am not Cait), 3. we have to keep editing during this, and 4. there are only a few days left in May.
Because we can’t forget this.
I honestly don’t know what exactly I’m going to read this summer. (Any suggestions?)
6. Driver’s License!
Because I don’t have one yet. And I need one. And once I get one, I will have no reason that I can’t go to the library and get books. Or a job. Or both.
This will be my first writer’s conference ever and I will also be going with Lily J. one of my bestest friends ever! SO EXCITED!!!
8. Secret Project.
This is a secret for now. So I’m not telling anyone yet.
I feel like I’m missing something big, but I’m…
Spiral-Bound will be two years old in a little more than a week! Not yet sure how we will be celebrating.
10. My Birthday
Which is in August. Not sure yet how we will be celebrating.
So, that’s some of what I am going to do this summer. What are your summer plans, reader-peeps? And is anyone else going to Ch1Con?
