ONE WORD/PHRASE THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED
I heard about this short story contest due next month and for some reason I decided I wanted to enter. I rarely ever write short stories- they're not really my cup of tea- so I have no clue why I felt the urge, but I did and I ended up writing almost 4k of it in one day. So a word that sums that up is SURPRISED.
THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED THIS WEEK
Busyness, as usual. I wanted to work on revisions every day but I found the days where I was doing other stuff (CP-ing, short story writing, and cover revealing), I didn't get any revisions done.
SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WIP
For this short story I'm writing, I kinda love the MCs voice. She's really been speaking to me and I love that, especially since the entire last WIP I wrote that didn't happen at all. :(
I finished BIRD BY BIRD by Anne Lamott and thought it was great. I also finished THE LOST HERO by Rick Riordan and then the second book in the Heroes of Olympus series: THE SON OF NEPTUNE. I loved that one too, maybe even more because it's about Percy again and I love Percy. I'm taking a mid-series break though to read Meg Cabot's new Princess Diaries book: ROYAL WEDDING.
