Another month over! I can’t believe how quickly June passed. So much happened, even though I feel like I just blinked, and how half the year is over. O_O
But here’s a monthly wrap up.
Books read 4:
Well, it’s better than last month, where I clocked in at a whopping two books. (my last wrap up post says one, because I wrote the post before May was over. guess I was a bit excited, there.) If you’re interested in reading any of my little blurb/reviews for these books, they’re on my goodreads.
Although this total appears small, I’ve officially surpassed the half way mark for my reading goal this year!
Writing That got Wrote:
I talked about this in my editing post, but to summarize: this month I set my WIP to a beta reader, gathered myself together, and then spent a week with a real life author and had her read and critique my Prologue and story concept. (kinda) Also gathered lots of brainstorming inspiration, because my brain keeps popping up with random ideas and filling plot holes in my WIP.
Favorite Blog Posts read:
Since I was with a real live author for a week at camp, not much blog reading got done. So I apologize. But here are a few… or two…
Blog posts that got published:
But shockingly, I still published just as many posts as last month??
Life that happened:
I went to camp. Camp was great.
I also read a really fabulous book (A TIME TO DIE *COUGH COUGH*) that both depressed me (how can I possibly write like this, my book will never be finished) and inspired me. (YES THIS GENRE EXISTS AND IS POSSIBLE TO WRITE! FULL STEAM AHEAD.)
Also, I’m doing Camp NaNo this month. It’s a laughable idea, seeing that all the other months I’ve tried, I never even begin. I’m a November kind of NaNoer, ya know? Every November I go in hyped up and completely mostly prepared and then come out with some amount of words.
But this month I’m just editing my WIP and trying to boost 67k to 75k. So far, I’ve added a good 500 words or so.
We’ll see. Perhaps I’ll do an update, even though there won’t be much to update on.
“Oh look, I figured out how to shimmy some words in here, and remove some clutter over there! *insert new scene on the left* *remove useless description on the right* ”
How was YOUR month? Are you still struggling to write 2016 at the end of dates? (I’m struggling with writing the correct month number. *struggles*)
Are you doing Camp NaNo?
