Hi everyone! I am gonna keep today’s post short and sweet because honestly life is kicking my ass right now – but in the best way possible!
I started a new job today that I am extremely pumped about but will keep my mind busy and my plate full. I’ll also be moving at the beginning of August to get closer to said job, so my evenings and weekends will be filled with house hunting and packing. A lot of really awesome (and slightly scary) changes!
That means that my writing/reading/blogging has fallen a bit behind and will likely stay that way for a bit. That doesn’t mean I won’t be around or won’t be pursuing my dream in every spare moment. But everything has its season, and I am excited to shake things up a bit!
So anyway, let’s get to the reason you’re all here – June’s updates!
What I Read
GRAND TOTAL: 3
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
Sorcery of Thorns by Margeret Rogerson
New Orleans Rush by Kelly Siskind
What I Wrote
Yet again, I got no writing done this month. And it’s honestly starting to wear on me. I am so ready to dive back into The Blood Between Us, but it’s just taking a bit of a backseat at the moment. I also parted ways with my agent at the beginning of June which – while it was the right decision – feels like a step backward. I am excited to see what the next stages of my writing journey will hold, but now is probably the perfect time to change things up and potentially switch my priorities around a bit – just temporarily.
While revisions for The Blood Between Us are moving slower than I’d like – and by that I mean at a standstill – I still really want to make some forward movement in July. Even if it’s just a few chapters. I did get the rest of my beta feedback, and between that and a wonderful Skype date with my critique partner, I feel like I have a plan for the first act that will really step up my novel’s game. I’ve also *tentatively* decided to aim to enter Pitch Wars this year, so stay tuned for updates on that.
As far as blogging and reading goes, I am hesitant to make any concrete plans or goals. I may be less active this month and next. With a lot going on, I have to really focus on the most important things, and while I love sharing with you guys, I know you will understand me taking a small and temporary step back.
All the love ❤
