I’m taking a short break from my break to say Happy IWSG Day! As always, the first Wednesday of the month is when we gather to share not only our insecurities. But also our triumphs. Giving encouragement and lending each other support as we continue on our writing journey. And all thanks for this monthly get together is the ninja extraordinaire Alex Cavanaugh.

So, what’s going on with me this month?
Well I’ve entered the second half of my blogging break this week. It’s also my week as co-moderator on Unicorn Bell. I’ve spent May and June, the first half of my break, reading so much I’ve lost count of how many books I’ve read.
But now that New Year’s 2017 looks so much closer now that it’s July, I have some thinking to do. Especially that NaNoWriMo will soon be upon us. I’m taking Harbingers of El Tinor out of hiatus and splitting it into two books. And reorienting myself with the characters.
That’s it for now.
Well back to reading (maybe a little less), more writing and being…
JULY 6TH QUESTION: What’s the best thing someone has ever said about your writing?
Up until recently I would’ve said my college professor. When towards the end of my senior panel after reviewing the writing I’ve done for the past four years. When she leaned over, took my hand, squeezed it and said “you deserve to be published.” Now, the best thing someone has ever said about my writing was from a Goodreads giveaway winner. She’d won an autographed copy of my poetry chapbook Can You Catch My Flow? which she read with her daughter. She said it was beautiful and thought provoking in her review. Other reviews said it was deep (thanks again Stephanie) and enjoyable.
What’s going on with you this month? Are you already prepping or given any thought about what you’ll be writing for NaNoWriMo?
