In the month of October, I read a lot of books and did some writing. Here is my month in review:
I wrote around 13,000 words for my contemporary YA fantasy manuscript. This is the one that I’m shifting from 3rd person past tense to 1st person present and condensing down from 180k words.
I started thinking about the fairytale manuscript that I need to finish editing and decided that I need to get on with it already and query it, NOW. I also tried to make an aesthetic board for it, but I think I took the task too literally, which resulted in more of a visual summary than “a set of principles underlying and guiding the work.”
I finished eleven books in October, bringing my total for the year up to 63. My new goal is to read 70 books in 2017. Follow me on Goodreads to see my reviews.
I also started a book club with three other writers, and our first online meetings are this coming weekend! It’s probably too late of notice, but if you’ve read Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, we’d love for you to join one of our discussions!
