What I’m Doing Monday

What I’m Writing

My big project this past week is a freelance opportunity that I’m feeling more and more excited about. It has the potential to turn into something pretty awesome, but I don’t want to say too much more until all the details are final. Otherwise, I’ve been working sporadically on my NaNo novel.

Book Review: Keeping the Moon

What I’m Reading

Read this Week: I read Alice in Zombieland by Gina Showalter for TypeOneTwo.org.

Reading Now: I’m currently reading Home Sweet Anywhere by Lynne Martin. (Still)

Reading Next: Next up is The Cowboy and the Vampire: A Very Unusual Romance by Hays and McFall. I saw the title, and I couldn’t pass it up.

I also won four eARCs (electronic advanced reading copies) of four romance novels courtesy of Entangled Publishing, so those will be reviewed at some point. 13845

Camp NaNoWriMo Status

How many words have you written in the past week? 6,471
Biggest Challenge so far: Maintaining a writing schedule after missing a few days.
Biggest Success so far: While it’s a work in progress, I’m working to change my attitude about Camp NaNoWriMo. I used to just abandon my project if I didn’t think I’d meet my goal, but now I’m going to keep writing even if I don’t hit 40,000 words by April 30th. Whatever I get done is a whole lot more than I had on paper at the beginning of the month.
Biggest Failure so far: Not balancing reading/reviewing, this new freelance project, and writing.
Current Word Count: 13,845
Words to Goal: 26,155

    • It’s taken me a while to come to terms with this (my competitive spirit can be difficult to reason with sometimes), but I just keep telling myself that even 50 words are more than I had when I began. 🙂
