Spring Writing Bootcamp Update: Week 2

YABuccaneers Spring Writing Bootcamp
Hi everyone! YA Buccaneers is hosting a Spring Writing Bootcamp to keep up with motivation and writing goals. Follow along on twitter too: #YABBootcamp

Week Two Accomplishments:

Thanks to the Bootcamp Bingo this made it easy to see all I'd accomplished.
  •  My reader read through my AMELIA draft and I made all of the easy fixes, while *almost* finishing the larger plot tweak we discussed. These were new changes which my reader identified. I had to change a few scenes to strengthen an existing plot arc which then had a domino effect in subsequent chapters.
  • I prepped my SUNSET SUMMER chapter submission for my critique group.
  • Read 3 out of 4 critique group selections and commented.
  • Attended bi-monthly RWA meeting.
  • Gathered supplies for my Spring Fling charity auction basket.

Plan For This Week:
  • #1 Above all: Complete AMELIA changes and send to agent.
  • Read and comment on last critique.
  • Attend critique group, set date for next month.
  • Incorporate critique feedback into SUNSET SUMMER.
  • Brainstorm plot points to complete SUNSET SUMMER (did not get to this last week).
  • Plan out posts for A to Z blog challenge for April.

 All right bootcampers, how did you do? If you're not in the bootcamp but working on writing, what are your goals for the week?


  1. I didn't print of Bingo in time for last week but I'm going to this week. So much fun! I'm working on my a-z posts this week to. Best of luck on your goals!

  2. I totally plan to break out the Bingo this week. Good luck finishing up your revisions!

  3. I'm giving the Bingo a try this week also. I've never participated in the A-Z posts. I don't know if I could come up with that many post ideas in one month. I hope you have a great and productive week!

  4. Sounds like a busy and productive week! I loooove the BINGO bootcamp card Heidi made. She = awesome and brilliant. I'll definitely be using it this week to help keep me motivated. Best of luck getting AMELIA ready for your agent!

  5. I'm excited to play bingo this week. Good luck with your goals this week.

  6. I thought about doing A-Z again this year, but I don't know if I can handle that AND Camp NaNo, and I really want to focus on Camp NaNo this year.

    Good luck making your changes for your agent!

  7. You are rockin' bootcamp!
