Hello internet! My apologies for being MIA all last month. But I’m back!
I thought I’d share what I’ve been up to during my hiatus.
1. Re-reading the ACOTAR series in anticipation for A Court of Frost and Starlight.This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. I’ve only ever re-read one series and it’s this one and it’s just as good every. single. time. Can’t wait to read ACOFAS.
2. Critiquing fellow writer’s manuscripts.
I participated in #CPmatch again on twitter and matched with some pretty cool writers to swap manuscripts for a critique. It’s been super, super helpful for me and I hope I’ve been helpful to them. But it’s taken up a majority of my free time.
3. Presented at a PRSA Conference in North Carolina on Communication Planning.
This is the best picture I have of me and it kind of looks like I’m about to start dancing, but it’s mostly because I talk with my hands and most of the other shots were blurry. I’m a communications professional by day, and it was a huge honor to present at this conference. It’s also great for my career, but it ate up a lot of my time and attention.
4. Re-doubled my efforts to start querying.
This is me. Trying to find an agent so I can meet my goal of being published one day. It’s an overwhelming process. Wish me luck!
5. Bought a whole lot of books!
I didn’t read as much as I usually do, and I surely didn’t write any blog posts, but I definitely bought a ton of new books to read. Hopefully this will encourage some great reviews in the near future!
