What I'm Reading
I've been reading samples on my kindle of lots of books, trying to find one that really sucks me in. You guys gave me a few suggestions last week that I still need to look into. Nothing has really gotten my attention yet. I do have some books I'm going to be ordering soon since I can't get them in my local bookstores and I want the actual print copies (books by Lillith St. Crow, Nova Ren Suma, Anne Bishop).
What I'm Writing
I'm trying to work on Shane's book (the next Whatever It Takes novel). I'll be honest--this week was rough when it came to making any progress on it. I had planned on really working my butt off this weekend, and I tried. Really. I tried big time, but I couldn't seem to get anywhere. Something was off, and it totally screwed my word productivity. I spent time researching and came up blank with info I needed. Finally (at bedtime, before the week of my day job started, of course) I figured out the problem.
My fantasy revision is calling to me like no other, but I need to get this contemporary done first.
What Works For Me
I'm not sure, since nothing really worked until I had turned everything off and walked away from my office. I didn't keep up with my chapter to-do list/check-off as much as I had hoped, since most of my writing time is during the weekends.
What Else I've Been Up To
I've started a #FierceFriday blog post routine. On Fridays, I'll be sharing a snippet or excerpt from my novel Fierce (or something related to the book like pictures etc). You can check out the first one here, if you want. It's a gym scene snippet.
I'm trying to settle into my new gym. I miss my old training partners/gym friends, but I am also happy with the new gym, although it's taking me longer to settle in than my last gym. Fight gyms have interesting dynamics, especially when you start one.
If anything, it's kind of reminded me of previous experiences, and helped motivate me for some of Shane's book things.
Have a great week, everyone!
I look forward to reading your posts, but I am working all day so I won't get to leave comments until this evening.
