Actually Finishing Something in July: Week 2

Okay, so it is definitely not the second week of July...I'm a bit behind with these posts. (So, you'll get a couple a week till July ends.)

Thanks to Katie from Whisperings of the Pen for hosting this!

1) How time flies! Did you reach your weekly goal?

I didn't have a weekly goal, but considering I wrote next to nothing, I'll go with no.

2) Is this challenge pushing and encouraging you to write more often?

At this point (second to last week of the month), absolutely.

3) Did you accomplish most of your writing in the morning, afternoon, evening, or at random intervals during your busy day (i.e. waiting for your neighbors to go inside so you can jump on the trampoline without disturbing them)?

Afternoon or evening. I'm really, really not a morning person.

4) Any particular musical tracks inspiring your prose?

The Kind David soundtrack is what started this series...and it's also what's getting me through.

5) Share a snippet (or two) of your writing!
“Well, maybe you should give the story a chance to be told,” Ella countered.
“What do you think I’ve been doing?” Joe asked.
“Using me as a drawing board to perfect your witty banter,” Ella said, without hesitation.
“My banter does not need perfecting in order to be witty,” Joe said, grinning.
6) Share your three favorite bits of dialogue.
“Sleepy,” Joe interjected. “I was sleepy—not ungrateful.” 
“Money can do a lot of things that shouldn’t be possible, Davey.”
“Are you ready for some liquid warmth?”
7) How are you going to move forward in this challenge? Are you changing your word-count goal, or other such battle plans this week?

My goal is the same, my pace will just need to be much faster now. I should set weekly or daily goals to be sure it happens...but it will.
