So what’s going on with me this month? Well as for this month and previous months since the new year began I’ve been doing a lot of reading. More reading than writing. That I’m thinking about finally doing the Goodreads book reading challenge. To see how many books I can read in a year.

Anyways, here’s my writing progress report, the first tri-annual report of 2019.

As you can tell, I didn’t make much headway with writing. Since I have been writing inside my head. Just have to get in on paper. But I did finally finish my online class. And receive my Proofreading and Copyediting certificate. Now I have to think about freelancing my services. In the meantime, my blogging break begins today. So hopefully, this summer my writing goals will become on plan.

Well, off to my blogging break. See you back again on next month’s IWSG Day!

    • Thanks Pat. Was thinking with starting off with providing proofreading services. While taking the class, I’d noticed that even while reading for pleasure, I’ve been unconsciously proofing the stories. Catching and correcting the errors missed before publishing. Even now in the story I’m currently reading, I pulled myself out the story, surprised over how a sentence began with ‘his’ when it should be ‘her.’

    • Thanks. Really hoping, and will do more than just hoping, to get some actual pen to paper writing and fingers to keyboard typing done this summer, during my blogging break.
