Weekly Progress Update!
Happy Sunday Folks!
Just dropping by with another weekly update on all things Jonny.
On a personal note, this week was pretty good. I took Friday off for a mental health day and enjoyed just chillaxing while running some small errands too. Like last weekend, I got a lot of time to hang out with some friends this weekend, and it was good to get out and do something for a change.
I continued reaching out to book bloggers for reviews of my debut novella and also emailed some businesses (mainly independent bookstores) about having a book signing. I haven’t received much of a response, but I’ll follow up with them next week via phone so they can’t avoid me, haha!
On the bookish side of things, I finished Animorphs #10 and started Middlegame by Seanan McGuire.
Animorphs went pretty darn well, and I’m enjoying Middlegame.
The one point of contention I have with Middlegame is the pacing so far. In some spots its great and I can blast through 80 pages, but other parts its quite a bit harder. Just something I noticed.
On the watching side of things, as far as completing things I watched The Curse of La Llorona.
Overall, the movie wasn’t one that stuck with me, but there are plenty of other great movies out there.
I’m currently watching a few shows and finished another movie last night, so you should see some more reviews in the next week for sure!
On the writing side of things, things are going well with the plotting of my second act of my sequel to Reaper.
I started over on the plotting of my second act and am fleshing out as many details as I can. I am currently on the second chapter and that’s working pretty well. I will definitely need to go back at some point and work on the tension points between each character, but for now things are working well enough.
In general, I’ve been taking a little more time to read each day, and I’m enjoying it. I don’t want to pressure myself to write too much or I feel that I’ll burn out.
My Other Published Work
Speaking of my writing projects, I’d like to give a quick reminder that I have a blog tour coming for the first book in my series on the last week of August.
You can also check out my debut novella Reaper here before the blog tour if you’d like.
That’s a Wrap!
Well, that was my week. How did yours go? Did you do well on your writing and reading projects? Maybe some milestones you’d like to share?
Do you have any great recommendations in TV, movies, or books? Feel free to share in the comments!
Thanks for stopping by everyone, and Happy Sunday!
