Weekly writing check-in: the one with the roller derby–again

derbySo! I took my Girl Scout troop to the roller derby once again. And you know what that means. This will be a very short entry.

I. Am. Tired.

Even so, I turned in my graphic design homework and made progress on the new series. And that’s about it, for this week and this post.

I’m off for some post-roller derby recovery time.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with the reading challenge

This week looks a lot like last week. I’m still in class, working on a new series (or so I hope), and reading/researching. I’m also hoping to start in on a reading challenge this year. I haven’t done one for a while, but War Through the Generations is hosting a stress-free World War II reading challenge this year. Check out their read-along books as well. I’ve been meaning to read All the Light We Cannot See, which is up first in March.

So? Join me? I’ll start doing mini-reviews again once I log a few books for the challenge.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with a new book (to read)

WomenHeroesWWIIA new book! To read!

Women Heroes of World War II—the Pacific Theater landed in my mailbox yesterday. And I can’t wait to read it. Review forthcoming.

I also have a new book of my own (well, technically a novella). I’m closing in on the end of the very last episode of Coffee & Ghosts. I’m thinking I’ll finish it up this week.

I’ve been working through Vellum as well, and as it says below, lots and lots of Vellum (because I have lots and lots of books to format).

I even sent out a couple of submissions.

Not bad for the last week of summer.

Writing Work:

  • Writing: Coffee & Ghosts ~ 7,500 words
  • Photoshop and Vellum, lots and lots of Vellum

Submissions:

  • Knight in the Royal Arms
  • Like Bread Loves Salt
