I have to say… I’ve been slacking with the reading lately. I’ve been keeping up with my book a week, but barely. I read three books (almost four) this month. I’m hoping to hop back on the reading train next month and maybe get a little ahead again.
You can check out my Reading List for an updated list of books I’ve read and reviewed.
I wanted to write my Camp NaNo novel as well as edit my mystery novel. I don’t know why I always decide to get some editing done during a NaNo month because I never follow through with it.
Needless to say, I wrote my Camp novel, Unwritten, and I absolutely love it. I think, for a first draft, it came out pretty good. I still have lots of editing to do for it, but I not only reached 50k, I also went over that and completed the overall story. Editing is the next step.
It’s hard to do Camp and blog at the same time. I’m usually ahead with my blogging, but I wasn’t this month. And, at the time this post goes up, I’m not ahead for May either. This is going to be a busy weekend for me.
Still, I did blog every day and I kept up with blogs I follow (for the most part), so that’s good.
April wasn’t as productive as I thought it would be. Camp certainly kept me busy and even though I had a week off of work, I ended up doing other writing-related things (I’ll talk more about that on a later date).
Still, I did get some things done and I have another novel under my belt, so I’m going to be proud of that.
