May began with the editing part of the 85K90 which ends by the end of June. By April 30th, I still had ~22K words left to make goal. So my plan for May was to focus on making word count goal and editing the previous drafts I’ve written for the series. It was supposed to go like this, in the following order of “On the Mat,” “Love Lines,” and “Tall, Dark and Hateful.”
So did I make any progress while I entered editing hell? Let’s see…
Happy IWSG Day! Can you believe it’s May already? Oh well. That means we’ve had five months of sharing our writing woes. Five months of encouraging our fellow writers in our snug writing community. And with many more to come. All thanks goes to ninja extraordinaire Alex Cavanaugh for bringing us together.
And thanks to the awesome co-hosts posting today: E.M.A. Timar, J. Q. Rose, C.Lee McKenzie, and Raimey Gallant!

Okay, I’m using April to catch up on the final word count to make goal of 85k words. Did I make it?
Well, let’s see…

Happy National Poetry Month!
It’s the last the day of poetry month and whew 30 days flew by fast. This year I didn’t do my usual 30 days of poetry blog posts. But I hope you still enjoyed the few poems I’ve shared with you this month.
The poem I wanted to share with you I searched high and low for. It was by a female slam poet who blew me away. I found it last summer and swore I shared it on FB but was unable to find the YouTube video with you. Oh well.
Now here’s the final poem I’m sharing today has made me a huge fan of Crystal Valentine. Enjoy!
Did you enjoy reading and writing poetry this month? Discovered a new favorite poet?
