WIP Issues This Month: I barely, barely worked on editing/fiction writing. My life kind of blew up in a dozen different ways and it’s been difficult for me to accomplish anything.
What I learned this month in writing: Publishing is a wild ride of highs and lows.
What distracted me this month while writing: My life. I don’t want to get into too many details, but I have literally half a dozen extremely stressful things going on right now. But it could always be worse. (It could always be worse, it could always be worse…)
In good news, I had a great time at BookCon! And I got to meet Ifeoma! 😀 She was so sweet and supportive and I signed TWO books for her. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Next month, I’m signing at a WI Barnes & Noble for B-Fest! That’ll be an interesting experience.
Goal for next month: I need to do another read-through of the fairy tale story and probably a big chapter one rewrite. I don’t know if I’ll have time, but that’s the goal I’m setting.
