I think I am turning this into a monthly thing, since that seems to be how often I blog. Which is better than last year. But I have spare time now. At least until I buy an apartment and has to, you know, move.. But let’s not think about that now. May has been… unseasonally warm and sunny. I have mostly enjoyed it, though I am sort of dreading how July and August will be. They are saying cooler weather are coming. *hopes said cooler weather includes rain*
I have finished the first draft of the WIP, mostly because I figured out that I was floundering, and I had reached a good stopping point for the arc. It is a big mess, though, and I am not sure how much I will be able to keep. Ah well. Most of my drafts are super messy. I have started outlining book 2, though, and I feel good about it right now. Ask me how I feel while I am writiing the rough draft. Which I will spend June doing. And then I will start revising The Shifter’s Justice, since I have figured out that I revise faster if I don’t have to go to work for a week or two. And since I am hoping to significantly cut down the revising time… I mean, it isn’t the only thing that I’ll do to shorten the revision time, but it definitely wont hurt.
Beyond writing, I have been reading. I have been in the mood for funny books, so I have been some Tessa Dare and Patricia Rice books in my TBR pile, along with rereading books in my TBR pile, and bought some new ones too.
Beyond this, I went to London. I saw Hamilton (yaaay!) with my friend Sharpie, met my brother and his wonderful girlfriend and had a generally great time. I needed a weekend when I saw friends and did fun things. 🙂 I am planning to do it again, maybe,in July with other friends ( though not London!).. I should probably follow up on those plans…
Anyway, that is what I have been up to in May! In June I am going to Spain… which will be a lot of hotter than Sweden. I am planning to spend my time reading in the shadow or in the water. Well. And eating good food and probably seeing something moorish, though not Alhambra, since it was deemed to be too far away.
