What has everyone been up to lately? I decided to create a check-in post since we’re a couple of weeks into March and time is just flying by.
Here is what I’ve been up to:
Writing - I’m just bypassed the 60,000 word mark of Wrapped in Darkness. My goal is to have the first draft done and dusted by the end of the month. I’m not 100% sure if I’ll make it, because I think it will end up being quite a bit longer than 80,000 words, but I’ll give it a good go!
Reading – I’ve been re-reading the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. I’ve read the first three before, but decided to sit down this time around and finish the entire series. I’m halfway through the 6th book at the moment and looking forward to finishing so I can read Panic by Lauren Oliver.
Competitions - This morning I entered the #PitchMadness pitch competition. Check out the Twitter tag for more details. For those of you who have a finished manuscript, definitely keep an eye out for twitter pitch competitions, they’re a lot of fun.
Upcoming - April 1st marks the first day of Camp Nanowrimo – a mid year Namowrimo. I’m planning to put Wrapped in Darkness aside for the month and start something new! Who’s going to join me?
In other news - I bought a gorgeous Princess Parrot :) Meet Khaleesi.
(Yes, I’m a Game of Thrones fan).
What have you been up to? Let’s motivate each other :)
