1 Month Into “Writer Girl Summer”


Secretly this past month, behind the scenes, this ignited moth has been busy. Today marks one month since I’ve started my own personal writing goal for the summer. You always see the “Hot Girl Summer” hashtag so I tweaked the name and dubbed this summer “Writer Girl Summer”. πŸ˜› I have a tendency to want to work on a million things at once, but this summer my focus is on writing (with the exception of a couple small drawing challenges like the Shark Week art challenge I previously posted). The goal is simple: take the scraps of writing I’d previously been working on, the very detailed plot outline, and a metric fuck ton of caffeine, and use this summer to complete the first draft for my book I’m working on.


I feel like this past month was REALLY productive, but the past couple days I’ll admit, I’ve been slacking, so what better way to get motivated again than to hold myself accountable by posting about it here on my blog? πŸ˜‰ Changing some of my writing habits has been really helpful, and I really want to keep that momentum going.


What are you working on this summer? πŸ™‚ Do you find that the more people you talk to about your goals, the more successful you are in the long run? I’m sure hoping that sharing my writing journey here will help keep me on track. πŸ˜€

  1. It’s great that you’ve been productive with your writing! I myself am editing my latest manuscript, and that’s my least favourite part of the process. Wishing you all the best with your WIPs!


  2. Go girl – don’t worry about being right, just write!! 😁
    I’m deliberately keeping life goal-free this summer, but embarking on a Masters program in November… that should keep me out of mischief for a few years πŸ‘


  3. I’m so excited to see the progress that you make! πŸ˜€
    You know me, I’m just focusing on finishing this semester with school. Then, during the 3 weeks I have off before the next semester starts, I’ve got to cram in SO many house chores before school sucks up all my time again. :3 Definitely not taking any classes next summer.
    Writer Girl Summer will probably almost bump up to NanoWrimo!


  4. Despite having three degrees in creative writing (lol, don’t do that), whenever I sit down to write fiction, I just want to slither off my chair and die. This summer, I’ve mostly been eating ice cream on Sundays and getting ready to go to school in the fall for the ASL interpreting program. Right now I’m super nervous because this is a tiny liberal arts school, where apparently they do everything for you? I’m like, “Bruh, how do I sign up for classes?” and they’re like, “We’ll figure something out!” I have faith, but, like, I’m not used to this.
