What I’m Writing
My muse has decided to become difficult. She’s in the process of convincing my that I can absolutely start outlining another novel before I’ve finished the one that I’m working on right now. The problem is that I’m starting to believe her. That’s not to say that my NaNo novel will fall by the wayside. I’m just going to be multi-tasking.
The project I’ve been mentioning for the past few weeks is still going on. It’s moving at a much slower pace than I’d like, but I’m excited because the rough draft will be done by Thursday this week. That means I’m that much closer to the end.
What I’m Reading
Read this Week: I read Beauty Queens by Libba Bray for TypeOneTwo.org.
Reading Now: I’m currently reading The Cowboy and the Vampire: A Very Unusual Romance by Hayes and McFall. I can already tell that this review will be interesting.
Reading Next: The next book in the Beautiful Creatures series, Beautiful Darkness.

How many words have you written in the past week? 3,885
Biggest Challenge so far: Getting all of my work done during the day so that I can sit down and focus at night.
Biggest Success so far: I’m getting to be pretty regular with sitting down at night and getting about a thousand words written.
Biggest Failure so far: While the schedule is awesome and I’m getting a ton done, I’ve talked myself into a fixed routine. That means I struggle if I sit down to write before that time. I wouldn’t say it’s really a failure, I just need to learn to be more adaptable and learn to write whenever I have the time.
