Happy Monday All!
And Happy Fourth of July to my American friends 🙂 Hope you are having a beautiful day!
And I hope you all had a beautiful week! Here’s what I was up to. Warning, it’s a lot 😉

This was the last week for #WIPjoy in June. The next one will either take place in August or September. I loved taking part this time, and can’t wait for the next one 🙂
Day 26: What keeps you working on this WIP?
Day 28: What do you want the future book cover to be like?
Day 29: What’s the best thing people can say about this WIP? (excuse the typo…)
Day 30: What are you planning for your next WIP after this one?
As day 30’s #WIPjoy post reveals, my other main WIP at the moment is Heritage. Last month I did a read through of my first draft and switched the entire POV from third person to first person. It was a BIG undertaking, but a necessary one, and ultimately a rewarding one 🙂
In July, I have three main writing goals outlined: edit a decent second draft of Heritage ready for a beta-read, finish a final draft of my dark adaptation screenplay (a goal carrying on from last month)! I’m also working on a new project–one that I’m rather excited for, but not yet ready to reveal. Maybe in August.
Thinking about the release of Beauty and the Beast in 2017 with Dan Stevens and Emma Watson, I’ve been in a bit of an Emma Watson mood, so I looked up some movies of hers that I haven’t watched and ended up choosing Perks of Being a Wallflower. I wasn’t prepared to enjoy it, and yet I did! Emma was fantastic and Ezra Miller has earned a great amount of respect from me. It was really great storytelling and directing. A surprise winner 🙂
In My Life
I mentioned in my 20 Things about Me tag that I had recently made one of the most impulsive purchases of my life! Well, I’m happy to announce that it came in earlier today and I am extremely excited to be get started learning how to play my brand new violin!!
I have been playing the guitar for many years which is in no way a sign that I’ll manage the violin with any more ease.
You might be asking why I bought it. Well, a lot of it has to do with an old dream to learn another instrument. But a big reason for the impulsive suddeness has a lot to do with the protagonist of Heritage, Peggie. She plays the fiddle. I want to feel more of a bond with her and I think that’ll be best achieved if we can share a love of an instrument. So I’ll be learning — hopefully she can teach me a bit ;P
Can you remember your most impulsive buy? What was it and what inspired you to purchase it? Leave a comment. I’d love to hear about it 🙂
May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,
