Let’s start with what I’m up to, shall we? I officially suck at blogging this month, and at the A-Z challenge (oh yeah and at Camp NaNoWriMo too). In the beginning of the month I went to visit my friend Tracy, which was wonderful and much needed. The day I was to travel home, I received a call saying that there was a death in the family. Needless to say, the whole next week was preparing for services and the services themselves. The week after, my desktop at home decided to shit the bed. Therefore, I haven’t had much opportunity to blog or even work on my Camp NaNo novel.
Since I last updated, I’ve read the following books…
I will hopefully be reviewing each of these books within the next couple of weeks. Hopefully I will have time to use a computer for long enough to keep you posted until I can buy a new laptop or get a new processor for my old desktop.
I am currently reading:
I am still reading We Are Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. It is a very good book so far, but it is so different from what I usually read that it is taking me longer than usual to read it. I am also reading Cress by Marissa Meyer because I just couldn’t wait any longer and I bought it for my e-reader. I also recieved a copy of Brooklyn Skye’s new YA release, Fragile Line which I will hopefully be reading very soon as well.
What I’m Writing:
I am still plugging away at the revisions of my novel. I realized not long after beginning Camp NaNoWriMo that my book needed a lot of work. So I have been trying to keep what was good or decent, develop those things, and go with that. Eek. This not having a computer to use at home thing is driving me batty though, so hopefully I can do something about it soon.
