Well it’s almost the end of the school holidays for my little ones *happy dancing* It’s nice having them home for a little while, but I am dying to get back into my regular routine, and especially my regular writing routine. I’ve just came up with a great new schedule that means, if I stick to it, I’ll be able to write 3-4 hours 6 days a week. This makes me very happy.
I haven’t gotten anywhere near as much writing done these holidays as I would have liked, and I fell a bit behind on the blog too. It used to really stress me out when I fell behind with the blog, but I didn’t let it worry me as much this time. It is supposed to be a hobby, hobbies are supposed to be fun, stressing is not fun. I just have to come to terms with the fact that in times like school holidays I’m just not going to get be able to do things like blog and write as much.
The main thing I did, writing wise, was try to pick the next project to work on while I’m querying. I read through a few works I had been working on prior to my ya fantasy. I’ve decided to concentrate on my ya sci-fi – which I call Rift. I’m on the look out for a critique partner to help me with it.
I haven’t had a lot of luck on the query front yet, but it is early days.
That’s it from me on the writing front. What about you? How is your writing going?
Now For My Book Haul:
I am so excited to share my book haul with you. It’s been a while. I won a ‘box’ of mystery books from Romi from Where The Writer Comes To Write. I was so excited when I opened the package and all the books were wrapped up! It was like Christmas, and it was so exciting that I might have to do my own surprise giveaway soon.
There was an amazing 10 books in the package which was so generous of Romi. I only owned one of them, so that was good. I also got a few extra goodies thrown in.
Here are the books I got:
And here are the review copies I received:
And I bought this one myself:
So those are my books. What books have you gotten recently?
