Hi, survived this month haha. For those of you who don’t follow my tumblr blog-turned-diary, May was absolutely insane. None of you want to hear about the comedy of errors that were my personal life, so suffice to say, I barely touched a document for the past several weeks. I’m still dealing with some burnout while I play catchup – a writer’s block of the “just thinking about tackling these projects sounds so exhausting I don’t even want to acknowledge them” variety. Also, many apologizes for this post coming late; I didn’t have time to finish it before leaving for work. Hopefully, a few days of serious rest and refilling my creative well through other means will help get me back on track, but until I can kick my catatonic brain back into action, let’s review what I salvaged of this month!
Won by 2.5 points: 5.5 out of 6 goals completed
Finish Mistborn: Well of Ascension: I just barely slid across this goal on the 31st, but it’s a wonder what a 10-hour drive to your new internship and two days of repetitive lab work will do to your reading habits Computer backup, clear out Google drive + photos so I have space again: This is only kind of a writing/creative goal, however it is here to serve as your regular reminder to save your work!! Don’t lose your book to a computer crash! Collect the last of the Runaways feedback and compile for edit: My last beta finished reading and I have a monster document of the aggregate feedback at the ready! Reevaluate Storge progress based on camp nano accomplishments and make new game plan: If I remember correctly, I need to finish roughly two chapters a month in order to finish by the time I graduate! During Camp NaNoWriMo I added 30K to the draft, but I’ll be taking a break from Storge for the summer while I edit Runaways again, so I’ll be picking up again in the fall. Edit last prewritten chapter in Storge and first rewrite chapter post-prewrite: Half finished goal. In case you didn’t know: I previously “edited” up through chapter 10 of Storge before going back to fix up some things and make a draft 2.5. This refers to re-editing what I already have of draft 2, and then starting from scratch re-writing draft 1. I only finished the first part, but I think that’s as good a place to pause as any for now. Website and instagram scheduling: I barely remembered to post to Instagram but I did!
Thanks for reading! Do you have any fun plans for the summer? What are you working on this month? Next week I’ll be back with a writing advice post, but I want this blog to be more than me shouting into the void.
