Hello guys! Welcome to another edition of "Previously," a blog hop put on by Miss Cole, where writers share their month in writing and reading so far.
Previously in Writing
This month in writing has been wonderful. I can't tell you exactly how many words I've written, but I'm nearing the 20k mark in my WIP. I'm still posting my work to Wattpad. I've gotten some pretty encouraging feedback, and my short story, THE RIOT QUEENS, is going to be featured on the site in March. Still, although my writing is going well, I have all of these ideas swirling around in my brain that I want to write. It's so hard keeping them at bay, but I know I need to stay focused.
Previously in Reading
I haven't been reading as much as I should have. I've started two books this year, which I haven't finished. Currently I'm reading Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto. I'm really enjoying it so far and I'm determined to finish. Even if I have to read all night, I will finish.
Next Time in Goals
I'm thinking I want to take part in a self-directed writing workshop, You can read all about it here. Other than that, my goals are to finish the book I'm reading right now. I still have to edit my NaNo novel, and I've given myself a deadline of April 1st for a second draft. We'll see how that goes. As for my current WIP, I want to be close to 40k next time we chat.
A Word of Advice
My best advice this month would be to take more chances with your writing. Don't be afraid to put it out into the world. You never know what might happen. This is what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to keep an open mind. I'm constantly searching for new opportunities.
