Hey, Leute! Here are some updates on how the month of May went for us. Thanks for reading!
I shared earlier this month about my social media hiatus; it was the best of times and the worst of times. I got so much done! Instead of wanting to check what others were thinking about my posts, I focused solely on editing Destiny Seeker. I got through the first half of the novel, or 365 pages. I was so stinkin’ proud of that. To be clear and honest, I went through and did a lot of heavy work in the first few chapters, but the rest of the edits were answering questions left in the Track Changes and making all of those revision requests. It was a lot of work but it got me back into my novel’s world and I’m happy to be back.
As for indie reading and reviewing, I reviewed Fairest Poison by Laura Skidmore and I just finished Valley of the Shadow by Christina Ochs. The review is also up for your viewing enjoyment! Hammer of the Gods is up next and I’m excited to finish the series.
What else? I’ve enjoyed my time in Your Write Dream and #StorySocial. I’ve found a few wonderful writing friends through these avenues and it just makes writing and blogging much more exciting and fun. I also finished taking a course, Build a Better Blog Challenge, through Brigid Gallagher. I’ve found a ton of great advice for blogging and marketing that now I need to consolidate all of them into a manageable list! Otherwise it’ll get overwhelming again.
Goals for June
- Read & review an Hammer of the Gods
- Participate weekly in #StorySocial
- Blog weekly
- Try out some new blogging tactics
Rewards for June
- A day that is 100% stress-free (clear my schedule and do nothing). I somehow forgot to reward myself this way. It turns out it needs a bit of planning to pull off! I really need one of these, so it’s going back on the list.
- A fun souvenir from Disneyland. I’m so excited for this getaway trip to see family and celebrate my birthday!
Another month gone, by and quite a relaxing one. I love summertime. I’ve done a lot of fun writing this month, and had some truly inspirational writing group meetings. I’m pleased to say that I met my goals for the month, such as they were, and happy to be able to adapt them for June.
Goals for June
- Weekly writing group submission
- Read Brandon Sanderson’s Calamity
So those are some of our quick little updates. How about you? What’s in store for you in June?
