Two days left (or one day) in the challenge! Can you believe how fast January just went by? I'm amazed at how far my story has come in spite of unforeseen setbacks and unexpected forced breaks. But I survived the first month of the year and I've got the challenge responses to prove I wasn't idle. :)
Read on to check out my challenge responses for Day 30...
Rather than one book review, I've got two for you today. I'm determined to make my 100 book reading goal this year. Thanks to Bookbub and the library and coupons from my favorite bookstores, I'll have no excuse not to. XD
Read on to check out yesterday's writing challenge responses and read the two reviews.
So round one of editing on the passages I posted over the past seven days. Does that mean I'm finished? Not at all! It only means my story will get better from here on. I'll keep polishing my work until it's good and shiny. And then, if the budget allows, I'll find an editor to help me make my project the best it can be. If not, I'll do my best with the help of some volunteers and go from there. Either way, progress on book two is moving along and I'm so excited by the things I've learned over the past month up to this point. Read on to see how I responded to yesterday's challenge prompts...
We're coming to the end of the month. How have you done? The day after tomorrow (or tomorrow) if you're following along on social media) begins the wrap-up of the Writing the Senses Challenge. Think back on what you've done over the month and be prepared to share some of your best highlights.
For now, onward to the challenge responses...
I don't normally post on Sundays but I thought since I'm sharing specific pieces of my work, it might make the blog posts easier to read. They're certainly shorter this way. :)
As mentioned last week on the corresponding day, some scents take us back in time -- to people or places that hold meaning, sometimes a deep meaning. As a writer I need to keep in mind that not all scents trigger happy memories. But in the scene I'm sharing today, the scents aren't triggering anything except the excitement that the prey is nearby, just up the trail...
Yesterday was totally focused on getting a better grasp of my plot line, especially in the last section of my WIP. I thought I wouldn't make my challenges yesterday and wouldn't get today's blog post ready in time. I'm still pushing it... Yikes! Read on to see my responses.
In spite of the busyness of life, I've been surprising myself by keeping up with two writing challenges and my commitment to blog every day in January. I have to say, though, that I'm really looking forward to throttling back to two or three blog posts per week. It's been harrowing. I know my limits and I'm coming really close to them.
I've definitely enjoyed my own challenge and the way it's pushed me to achieve some interesting goals in my own work. I like how it's opened up my mind to some great possibilities for my current WIP, Over Land & Under Stone. Read on to see how I responded to yesterday's challenges.
It's time for another book review and I have to say this addition to the blog is helping me stay on track with my reading. I'm eating books up! :D I'm enjoying some more than others but so far, I've been able to give all but one, I think, four stars since I started being more dedicated in writing reviews on the books I read. Read on to see the review and the challenge responses for yesterday.
As I said in yesterday's post, this week is a crazy busy week. I won't say a whole lot on the responses, but I'll keep sharing them here. I hope you'll enjoy them. Also stay tuned for another book review tomorrow. I know those could be more intensive, but I honestly don't have time to devote that much attention to the book reviews. I just want to help authors get their work seen. You never know how readers will catch wind of your work. On to the challenges!
