September Reads

What I Wrote

Well not much actual writing took place this month, but my brain is exhausted! I’ve been querying like crazy to moderate success so far – everyone keep your fingers crossed – but more so, I’ve been brainstorming and fleshing out new story ideas. My new goal is to finish book #3 by my birthday in March…

In addition to some preliminary research and outlining with the hero’s journey, I created these aesthetics for inspiration. It was a blast, but instead of helping me decide I am now equally excited about all three!

What do you think? Have a favorite or any tips on how to choose between story ideas?


Coming up…

October is gearing up to be an equally exciting and busy month, but as always, I will be making time to focus on my next story and read some great books:

  • A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor
  • The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor
  • The New Orleans Voodoo Handbook by Kenaz Filan
  • As much Harry Potter as I can manage because it’s October and because if you’re not rereading this series every 5 years then you’re doing life wrong

What are you most excited about for fall? Let me know below!
