Both these posts are late so I thought I would post them together. I’ll start with my writerly update for the week. It was a pretty bad week last week. Last Tuesday night I sat down to read a book and got shooting pain in my neck. I was hoping it would go away but four hours later it had spread to my shoulder and I couldn’t move my neck in any direction as it was too painful. So to the hospital I went at 2 am. They gave me some pain medication which really helped and told me I had strained my neck. A week later and it’s still very painful. I think I only manged to write for three days last week. I can’t sit at the computer for as long as usual because it’s too painful. Plus on Thursday I had to take my daughter to an appointment during my usual writing time and I had to spend most of Friday at an event at my kids school. Having to go out instead of resting really took it out of me and I spent both those afternoons sleeping.
How was your writing week? I hope you are all well and doing a lot better than I am.
And now for my Fortnight In Review:
Today I will be sharing with you all of the books I bought and/or received in the past fortnight, as well as the reviews I’ve shared and everything else that has been happening on the blog.
I always like to start with sharing my book haul:
Thanks to Random House Australia, Harper Collins Australia via NetGalley.
And the physical review copies:
Thanks to Walker Books Australia.
Thanks to Simon and Schuster Australia and Walker Books Australia.
Thanks to Chiara from Books For a Delicate Eternity.
Thanks to Shaheen from Speculating On Specfic.
I’m still technically on a book buying ban, but I couldn’t resist this. It was only $2 at an online sale.
Here’s what’s been happening on the blog:
My writing tip this fortnight was all about Time Management.
This fortnight I was waiting on The Evil Librarian.
A note to my regular readers: I will be doing my Writing Tip Wednesday and Waiting On Wednesday posts fortnightly for the rest of the year.
I posted episode 5 of my ya sci-fi The Amberly Chronicles – Hotness On Legs.
That’s it from me. How has your fortnight been?
