Weekly Progress Update!
Morning Blogging World!
How did your week end up? Good I hope!
My week was a bit unpleasing from Tuesday to Friday due to some work stuff, and I’m trying to explore some interesting options for myself in the future.
There’s a part of me that has always wanted to run my own business, but I’m starting at ground zero with a ton of questions. I’m definitely going to look into this further and even if it doesn’t turn into anything, I just feel like I have to do this. So if you have any pointers, I’m definitely all ears!
Personal stuff aside, let’s get into some highlights from this week!
On the bookish spectrum, things have been at a standstill unfortunately. I’ve been juggling a beta read of my good friend Randy Krzak as well as beginning Heaven Bound by Montre Bible. I also shared my review of The Celestial Assignment that I read last week.
Midway into the week I had to drop Heaven Bound for a moment and concentrate on finishing the beta read, but I just finished it last night so I’m amped and ready to get some reading time in.
The Celestial Assignment was a fun read. I’ve never read anything by Theresa Braun, so this was an interesting ride. Feel free to check out my review here.
On the watching spectrum, this week was really good!
I watched Aladdin (Disney Plus) and the first season of Locke & Key (Netflix).
Despite having some slight reservations, Aladdin was a hit for me and brought back all that great nostalgia I was looking for.
Locke & Key was Ah-mazing, and I am recommending it to anyone who’s ears aren’t bleeding from me gushing about it nonstop. Great series that I can’t wait to see more of!
On the writing spectrum, I did crazy well this week. I wrote a total of 4,480 words, or just about 18 pages! I wrote about half of my Chapter 25 and almost the entirety of my Chapter 26.
Besides my writer’s retreat from last year, I’m pretty sure I broke my record this week, much in part to having Monday off and getting in plenty of writing time.
To date, my Reaper sequel is at 77,216 words, or at about 308 pages long. I have two more chapters, then I’m done with my second act and ready for my third one, which will be short and sweet. Super excited things are amping up!
In the meantime, feel free to check out the first novel here.
That’s a Wrap!
All right, so that was 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?
