Fall Update

Fall is here!

Ok, it’s still really humid where I live in Illinois, but fall is officially here anyway. Fall is my favorite season. Bring on the hoodies, hiking excursions, and steaming cups of coffee. (Disclaimer: coffee may or may not contain pumpkin spice.)


Since I’m not posting my book review until next week, I thought I’d give you guys an update on all my writing related stuff. 🙂

A few weeks ago I was able to reschedule my editorial review for April of next year. Yay! After a bunch of hair pulling, not that I have very much hair to begin with, I decided that I needed to do some major rewrites on book one. Instead of feeling discouraged about this, I’m actually really excited to dig back in.

This brings me to the next writing related thing. Are any of you planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this year? I’m seriously considering it. I think it may give me the boost I need to get through another draft. Plus, I’d really like to buy Tosca Lee’s 10,000 word shirt.

Like I talked about last week, I want to make the book reviews a regular thing, possibly every other week. I’m also hoping to pick your brains about what sort of posts you want to see more of from me? Do you have any writing related questions you’d like covered? I love hearing from you guys!

Well, I had better get back to reading. I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts on Air Awakens next week!

I saw this comic today and thought I’d share. 😉


Have a great Wednesday!

  1. That’s exciting news! I just finished a major edit for my work too. I love doing NaNo as it gives a good boost to a first draft. You can add me as a buddy if you decide to join: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/matthewenordin
    Happy writing!
