My last post, back in March, was about writing. I'm still working on finding some freelance work, but it's harder than I anticipated. I think confidence has a lot to do with that. But at the start of April, I focused all of my writing energy toward Camp NaNoWriMo, and I won! My novel still isn't done, but it's pretty darn close. I'm currently tying up loose ends, and think it'd be amazing if I could send it to a couple indie publishers before Christmas.
I also completed Camp NaNoWriMo in July for another book, which I'm focusing on now. Plus, I just got an idea for another story that I might attempt for regular NaNoWriMo
I'm working on some backstory for a couple other books, and learning more about Scrivener. I'm falling in love with Scrivener. I think I can count it as a big reason I was able to write so much of my novel.
I haven't been keeping up with Built By Beks much, either, but I did restart WW, and am doing pretty well with it. I'm working on a morning exercise habit, and I'm starting to notice my new healthy habits are starting to pay off with better sleep and looser clothes. Win!
I've moved to a new client at work. I was pretty sad when they said they wanted to move me, but then I found out that my client was going away, and I felt relieved that they had a place for me first. And apparently some nice things were said about me in the process, which was awesome. I love finding out that the work I do is appreciated.
I've joined a Book Club. Back in September, my library forgave all library fines, which had been what kept me from going there (they added up REALLY quickly back in the day!), so I renewed my card, and have been exploring all of the community activities they offer from craft classes to Book Club. The first book I read with them was The Night Circus, which was amazing. We've also read Boneshaker (It was just meh), Ready Player One (Pretty good), The Heroines (Avoid at ALL COSTS), Station Eleven (Pretty good), and for next week, we're reading The Mists of Avalon. I've seen the miniseries, but I'm having trouble getting into the book.
So, that's pretty much what I've been up to.
