I’m not sure if it was just me, but June felt like a whirlwind of a month. I think a lot happened, but honestly it went by so fast that I can’t even be sure. o.O So, I guess we’ll just have to wrap it up and see how it went, shall we?
Whelp. I’m querying… >.> Not very well, I might add, but this isn’t a major surprise to me. Querying is a difficult process (and no, JK Rowling is NOT an inspiration. She only got rejected 19 times. Come talk to me after 50. Kay, thanks.) However, as a writer who wants to be traditionally published, it is a necessary process. As such, I am going to work through the rest of my list of prospective agents before I set this novel aside.
In other news, I HAVE STARTED DRAFTING! 😂 Querying always kills my muse. So, I had a hard time writing anything (though not a hard time coming up with new ideas. I came up with 3 in two weeks. The hard part was picking one. 😜) But I have chosen one that called to me the most and I decided to take a different route this time around. I AM HAND DRAFTING. As in, ON PAPER! I know, crazy. My hand is KILLING ME (especially since I was stupid and never went to physical therapy after my surgery. Stupid, foolish child I was.)
But I have about 4 chapters down in this new novel. It’s going to be a YA scifi (DUH!) with a fair amount thriller and suspense. I’m super excited about it and I’m gonna run it by some betas once I get chapter 5 done just to make sure it’s not like… SUPER cliche. 😉
Reading? Books? What? Just kidding! I did do some reading this month! Okay and a little listening because that’s just easier with my work schedule. I managed to ACTUALLY read 3 books and listen to 2 more. 🙂 Woo!
And because I’m so bad at reading the books I already have and talking about them and what not, I posted my very first TBR yesterday. Check it out and feel free to join me in the read-a-longs I’ll be participating in!
Well… according to my stats, I did rather well this month. 😋 June was my highest month for visitors… EVER! That’s right. I reached almost 800 visitors last month and I’m super excited about that! (Now if only all of those people would follow my blog. 😉 )
Speaking of followers, I passed 700 followers last month! AHHHHH! My blog literally doesn’t exist without you guys (because as much as I say I blog for myself… I really don’t. 😅 If I did, this would be a very different blog.) I blog for you and to interact with you. Soooo
Thank you soooo much!
As stated in my goals post earlier last month, I’m aiming for 1000 followers by the end of 2017. (Among a ton of other goals that I’m actively working towards as well!) But this is one goal I don’t have nearly as much control over as I would like.
291 Followers in 183 Days!
That being said, I need your help to promote the posts you like and to help me improve my current posts to be more awesome! For starters, I would really love it if everyone could vote in a couple polls I posted earlier this week.
