Mid-Month Check-In | 01.18

Hi friends,

The first half of January is over and done with! The year has just begun and it’s already speeding by!

I hope it’s been a great start to the year for you. It’s been busy here for me, what with things happening beyond my control, but I’ve been staying as productive as possible and trying not to get so stressed. I think it’s working. I certainly have accepted that you have to (forgive the trite saying) roll with the punches.

In terms of my goals for January, I’m rather pleased with a lot of the progress I’ve made…

  1. Finish my current edit of Heritage – I’m over halfway there, and that’s with more rewriting than I’ve done on a project since Pirate Eyes in August 2016!
  2. Type up the handwritten first draft of Destinies Entwined – I’ve typed up 20k so far but I have at least another 50k to go, so this might not get done, but as long as good chunk is through, I’ll be happy
  3. Launch service with my sister – ACCOMPLISHED. In case you missed last week’s post, we launched our editing service for manuscripts and scripts last week. You can find us at Inky Squid Editing
  4. Post at least three blog posts here to help other writers – The first of these should be posted Friday, so eyes open 🙂
  5. Read 4-5 books – I’ve read four books so far (Wuthering Heights, Howl’s Moving Castle, Keep Her Safe & A Desperate Fortune) – for more on this, check out my new review blog BooksSpringEternal
  6. Watch 5-6 movies – I have accomplished this as of yesterday! My sister and I did a double feature downtown and watched Call Me By Your Name and The Shape of Water! Both were extraordinary. I also rewatched North & South (the BBC miniseries), Howl’s Moving Castle & Star Wars IV: A New Hope, and we caught The Last Jedi last Friday! Needless to say, it’s been an amazing month in movies thus far!!
  7. Write one short story – Well on the way to this one. I have a story outlined and I’ll be writing it this week and next.
  8. Finish character sketches for secret project with my sister – Finished in the first week!

 

So yes! I’m feeling rather accomplished today 🙂

 


How about you, friends? How is your month going so far? Anything exciting happen? Share in the comments and let’s cheer each other on through the good times and the more difficult!

SEPTEMBER 2017 (and a newsletter sign-up!)

Happy October friends!

How is it possible that September has already flown by? I smell conspiracy 😉

It’s been a busy September over here and I thought I’d share some of the more important updates with you!



NEWSLETTER

After months of thinking about it, I finally threw myself into creating a newsletter and I am excited to share the sign-up link with you today!! If you’d like extra teasers, features, giveaways and general bookish delights, you can sign up below!!

SIGN UP HERE!!!

FREELANCE SUCCESS

I also got my first real paid freelance gig, and it’s writing reviews. Getting paid to read. That’s the dream friends. It’s definitely not enough to convince me to quit my day job, but it’s something to add to my CV 🙂

One step at a time, friends, one step at a time!

HERALDING

This project is at the forefront of my mind at the moment! The publication date is fast approaching. Release, cover and blurb reveals coming this week, so eyes open! My editor is working through it right now and I’ll be looking for ARC readers soon 🙂

Also, I’m hoping to reveal the news about Heralding across the blogosphere so if you’d be willing to share the news with your followers, leave me a message below in the comments!

 

PLANS FOR NANOWRIMO ’17

Some of you who have been following me for a while might remember that I wrote 50k of a novel called The Desert Knight for last year’s NaNo. I haven’t touched it since, but I am planning to finish it for this year’s NaNo. Anyone else joining in the fun this November??

MISCELLANEOUS PROJECTS:

HERITAGE: My YA fantasy about a fiddler and her grandmother which I’m slowly transforming into an MG one, because the narrative is better suited for a younger audience. A discover made better late than never 🙂

TPS: A novella inspired by a short story I’m currently submitting. It’s set in Victorian London and features ghosts! That’s all I’m saying 😉 I’m nearly done outlining and I’ll probably start on the first draft come December.

Destinies Entwined: A fairy tale retelling. I’m over halfway through the first draft. I hope to be done writing it by the end of the year.

Fairy Tale Musical: Untitled at the moment, but I’m working on the outline at the moment, and the narrative has taken on a life of its own! It’s really gotten me excited 😀



Okay, that’s all from me for the moment…

What are your plans for October, friends? Any new developments? I’d love to hear more about it 🙂

May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,
