Catching Up!

Well…with everything going on during June I may have gotten behind on posting about MayNoWriMo. But the good news is I FINISHED!!! Whooo-hooo!

The draft came in at 55k words and took me a little longer than a month, but that’s totally fine since I just care about finishing it. J It’s very rough—of course—but it feels SO good to know that I have a new complete YA draft to start revising when I’m ready. For now though, I’m letting it rest and moving back to revising my MG fantasy draft.

A very busy and productive month!

June is always full of non-writing activities as well. I started teaching my summer class, spent time with friends and family, and threw my son his 6th birthday party!

It was Thomas the Train themed so I had to make a fruit train! ;) 

I can’t believe we’re only a few days away from July 4th already! During the summer, time really REALLY flies by but I’m trying to make the most of it. Hopefully I can find a good balance between writing, teaching, and relaxing for the rest of the summer!

MayNoWriMo Update: Week 4!

Welp, this week was rough writing-wise. Some of that is due to fun reasons (Memorial Day on Monday and the Indiana SCBWI conference on Friday-Sunday) and some is due to worse circumstances like being diagnosed with bronchitis. :(

I wasn't able to write an enormous amount this week, BUT I'm still proud of myself for hitting 40k! In the future week(s) I'll keep plugging along until this manuscript is finished. Until then, every little bit counts!

My May calendar--lots of rainbow stickers for all of my writing. :)
