Hello Friends! And Happy Monday!
I hope you’ve had a lovely week, whether it was restful or exciting.
Mine ended up being busier than I expected, but I managed to get some things done….
As this is also the first, week of October, I thought it would be a good opportunity to share my September Haul, my September Wrap-Up and October TBR with you (I also shared them on Instagram)
These are all the books I bought in September. Oh, and the Funkos too…
My September Wrap-Up and October Haul made it into one post, but for some reason my description wouldn’t save. Basically the left-hand stack are the books I read in September and the right-hand my October TBR. Goblet of Fire and Cruel Beauty fell in-between because they’re books I started to read in September but will only finish this month.
As many of you know, I completed the first draft of my novella, Eléonore last Sunday. I took the week off it, to allow for some time and distance. I just finished a full clean read of the manuscript a few hours ago and I’m rather pleased with the end result. There are two sections I need to rewrite entirely, but that’s about the biggest editing I’m going to have to do before I’m ready to send it to beta readers. The goal is to have it ready by Sunday, October 9th!
Meanwhile, I’m also working on outlining the sequel to Pirate Eyes as I hope to write it for NaNoWriMo. More on that in a separate post. Essentially this will be the second half of the original draft I wrote when I was 16, but considering how the first book took shape, I’ll have a LOT of new scenes to write. 😛
Let me know the highlights in your past week. Whether it’s an exciting experience or a quiet reflection!
May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,
