June Wrap Up

I hope to make the month end wrap up a regular post. If you like it or can think of a way to improve it, please let me know! Thanks.

Book Reviews

I did 9 book reviews in June, but finished my Goodreads Challenge.


I was sent hard copy ARCs!

I requested e-ARCs and some upcoming reviews in July will be:

and there will be more…I have a weakness.


Writing World

After having a dismal writing month in May, I felt like I was getting back on track in July with stories for Friday Fictioneers and Carrot Ranch as well as poetry for dVerse.

My plans for July include taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo where I intend to rewrite Mouse’s story for possible publication. And I have another story bouncing around in my brain (I wish it would stop, that’s really painful. 😉 ). I also will continue to participate in prompts and add to my flash fiction.


I’m going to stop here, because I’ve run out of time although I still have some June photos to share. They will make it…or I will make it…or something will make it. hehe!

Thanks!

  1. I like the wrap up idea. It should act as a motivator. I have a word count journal. I keep track of how many words I’ve added to whatever story I’m working on. The goal is always 2,000, but scarcely reached lately.

    • Hmm. I like that idea of keeping track of words written. But unless I do it at the time it’s getting done, I don’t see me doing it, because I’m discovering everything seems to take so much time when I go back to do it later.
      Have you thought of free-writing to try to open up your writing brain?

      • In Word, keeping track of words is easy. It has a word counter. I think it’s under tools. If it’s a continuous project, I subtract yesterday’s count from today’s and keep a running total.

        Your wrap up idea is probably better. You’re presenting your successes and failures to an audience. That would motivate me to attain my goals.

        I do something akin to free writing when I’m writing notes for stories. I let everything in my head flow onto the page. I can’t call it free writing since it’s story specific.

      • You’re right about Word. In the left bottom corner it tells me how many words are in the document, my altar when I need to keep it at 100. I’ve just gotten lackadaisical about keeping documents and numbers.
        I read a book that suggested 20 minutes of free writing in the morning before you get up as a means of opening up. I did it for a while. I think it worked, but I am not a morning person by any means so I looked for other ways, but it does work for some people.
