Ready, Set, Write! Brain Freeze

Ready, Set, Write is a weekly writing intensive hosted Jaime Marrow,  Erin FunkAlison Miller,and Katy Upperman.
Over the next few months I will be checking in with Jaime and the gang to answer a few questions about my writing week.

1.  How I did on last week’s goals: I FINISHED!!! The 50k and the novel. It's surprisingly short, but I hope to add another 5-10k in revisions.

2.  My goal(s) for this week:
None this week. I'm recovering from NaNo. I'm going to let this sit for a month while I figure out what my next project is going to be. But for now. I rest.

3.  A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised: 
I know I've been doing single lines, but since I finished I will share a little more. It's rough, but I liked this bit between Lucinda and Xander.

Xander stumbled out of his cage. “Lucinda, I’m so sorry. I was caught outside a portal and dragged here. I’m sorry I ruined your prom night.” Xander collapsed in my arms. “I’m okay,” he groaned.
“I don’t care about prom,” I said. “Okay, I’m lying, but I came for you, didn't I? You were in distress, my little damsel."
“So you felt it,” he smiled weakly. “Sucks doesn’t it?”
“Yeah, I felt it,” I said as we touched foreheads. “Never do that again or I will personally set fire to your car.”

4.  The biggest challenge I faced this week: Finishing before my brain melted.

5.  Something I love about my WIP: I said earlier this summer that my goal was for my MC Lucinda not to change at the end. Well I caved a bit and changed the ending I had planned. It actually works, don't worry, Lucinda's still very

What are you're goals this week?
