Farewell to July

Farewell to July

July’s Writing

I didn’t write nearly as much as I wanted to in July. My original Camp NaNo goal was 50k, but near the end I decided to lower it to 30k because I just wasn’t writing as much as I wanted to and I knew I wouldn’t make it to 50k. I did make it to 30k, though, so I did get a pretty good amount written.

My main focus in July was editing The Heart of the Baenor, and I did finish that, so that’s good. I’ve been enjoying editing a lot with this story, but I’m glad to be done with the third draft and glad to take a break from it for August. I’ve been editing for a really long time, it feels like, and so even though I’m enjoying seeing it get better I’m also getting a little burnt out on it and I think my taking a brief break is going to be good for me and for the story.

All of the characters in this book were kind of one-dimensional. None of them were boring, per se, but none of them were particularly deep. They were all pretty “what you see is what you get,” and with quite a few of them “what you see” wasn’t much. The main character, Continue reading “Book Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton”

#CoverLove Tag

I was busy this past weekend and now I’m at camp, so I had to schedule all of these posts on time so as not to leave y’all hanging, and I just so happened to be tagged this weekend as well so I had a nice easy post to whip together at 6:45 in the morning before I spent the day hanging out at a mall an hour and a half away and buying books. So without further ado, the #CoverLove tag.

Thanks to Kate at The Inky Notebook for tagging me! Continue reading “#CoverLove Tag”

Farewell to May

Farewell to May

We’re already halfway through the year. Yikes! I think that means it’s time for a reevaluation of the year’s goals (which is something like three months overdue), and I’m going to snag the Spring Cleaning Writer Challenge Tag (now that it should be summer) from Melissa at Quill Pen Writer. (And after that will commence the normal updates I include in these things.) Continue reading “Farewell to May”
