August Wrap Up

[Insert generic sentence about how the heck has the year flown by so fast]

School has begun! It is that glorious time of year when writers everywhere can rejoice that their kids are now off to school and the house is finally QUIET AGAIN! After working on some random writings and doing some revisions for my agent, it’s officially time to get to work on my new WIP. I’m calling this one 7DS for short, but I won’t tell you what it means because I’m super secretive about my WIPs. This month I worked on a few things, including brainstorming for 7DS, which is proving to be a tough book to write. Of course, that only makes me love it more.

Going into September, I plan on finally pulling an outline out of my brain for 7DS so that I can start writing it. This one is complicated, with influences from Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, and Mr. Robot to name a few, and I kind of hope to make a series out of it. Although I’d like to have it fully outlined in a week or two, I’m betting it might take me all month. Such is the life of a writer. When it’s worth it, it’s worth it.

As for reading, I manged to read 9 books this month, leaving only a staggering 30+ books on my TBR shelf. They were all great, but my favorite was The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace. Definitely check it out!
