What I’m Writing
I’m still working on the potential freelance project. I’m hoping that more progress will be made on that this week. In other news, NaNo has been progressing pretty slowly. I’ve also been battling with a couple of new story ideas that are demanding my attention.
What I’m Reading
Read this Week: I read Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Home Sweet Anywhere by Lynne Martin, and The Maze Runner by James Dashner.
Reading Now: I’m currently reading The Cowboy and the Vampire: A Very Unusual Romance by Hays and McFall.
Reading Next: I’ll be reading the second book in the Beautiful Creatures series, Beautiful Darkness.

How many words have you written in the past week? 3,586
Biggest Challenge so far: Again, figuring out a regular writing schedule is still kicking my butt.
Biggest Success so far: I’ve struggled with the worry of a continuity problem, that the tension would drop off before suddenly reappearing later in the novel. While writing the other day, I added a scene that I hadn’t planned on writing and it allowed me both reintroduce the tension and to have it as a trigger for another scene.
Biggest Failure so far: Not figuring out a regular writing schedule. That’s going to be my priority for this next week.
