Weekly Progress Update!

Happy Sunday Funday Everyone!

Hope you’re having a great weekend. So far I spent a lot of time with friends catching up, and even had something of a date last night, so I’ve been keeping busy for sure.

This week has been a little rough personally. Things at work are a little chaotic. There’s a lot of change going on, and not everyone is seeing eye to eye. I’m hopeful that next week things go a little smoother.

Also, I just paid off my credit card on Friday, so I’m a very debt-free Jonny, but I’m always brokity broke broke, so I’ve been trying to distract myself with friends outside of the apartment to veer away from spending money I don’t currently have. Wish me luck! I only have to last until next Friday and then things will be a lot better.


On the bookish side of things, I’m still reading Aurora Rising.


I’m about two-thirds of the way in and am enjoying it pretty well. Lots of sci fi greatness here, though I don’t think it outdoes The Gemini Connection so far. Anywho, stay tuned for my review of this book, which I hope to have done by maybe sometime Tuesday.


On the watching side of things, this week went a little better than prior weeks. I watched Book Club and Alita: Battle Angel.

Book Club was a great comedy and my person favorite this week, worth plenty of laughs. To see my review, click here.

However, Alita: Battle Angel I had some issues with. The action was fun, I just felt that the characters were a bit two-dimensional and the plot not fully realized. To see my review, click here.

My Writing

On the writing side of things, this week actually turned out to be alright.

I finished the first chapter of my second act (yay!) at 4,000 words and am currently combing over it again for a quick polish before moving on. Since the beginning of my second act really changes things, so I had to move extremely careful with a plethora of things going on, but I think I ultimately managed to do a good job.

Looking forward to more great progress!

Things to Come

Brief reminder, don’t forget that from 9/16/19 (not 9/15/19 like I originally said) through 11/15/19 I’ll be switching things up a bit with my Festival of Frights.

Festival of Frights1

Most things on here will stay the same, like WWW Wednesday and my weekly updates on Sunday, but several things will be geared more towards the spirit of Halloween.

Feel free to check out my original post here for more details.

That’s a Wrap!

All right, that’s it for my week. How did yours go? Did you do well on your writing and reading projects? Anything interesting 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!

  1. Congrats on finishing the first chapter of Act II!

    My novel WIP sputtered and stalled this week because I worked on a short story and then hunted around for a place where I could submit it. Took forever, but I’m glad for the experience. Back to the novel now!
