Weekly Progress Update!
Happy Sunday Funday people!
How has this week treated you? Well I hope!
I don’t really have much to say in terms of anything personal. Mainly I’ve been just plugging away at work and trying to not lose my mind with all this isolation. I’m a little depressed, but so is everyone else I gather.
Feelings aside, I have been up to quite a bit this week.
In terms of books, I had a decent week for reading. I finished a book and a short story.
The Seers was a good slow burn for me. Sometimes I forget what it’s like to take my time with a book, and this one was great with plenty of action, scifi elements, and drama.
Little Free Library was short, sweet, and amazing. This is how all short stories should be, nice and simple, yet mesmerizing.
Next up on my reading list is Animorphs #29, The Sickness.
Man, I can’t wait to see how this one turns out!
This week I picked things up a little bit with my watches and review Parasite and the first season of Next in Fashion on Netflix.
Parasite was a great foreign drama, and even though I don’t usually love these types of movies, it really set itself apart and was executed flawlessly.
Next in Fashion really quenched my fashion thirst, and I want more, more, more!
Couldn’t be happier with my watches this week. I’m still a little backlogged with posting reviews of things I’ve watched (maybe 5-10 behind), but I’ll get there, promise!
Writing-wise I did really great this week!
It turns out there are only eight chapters in the first act, and I blazed through the remaining chapters’ edits this week. Eight was rife with inconsistencies and took a couple days, but I cleaned it up pretty well I think.
Before I move on to the second act, I will be reading through the first act one more time. I plan on doing that this afternoon so I can start fresh on future chapters tomorrow on.
I will say this. While the first act was revised relatively easy, the second act is about 60-70% of the novel and has the most inconsistencies, so this will take some time. Bear with me, I promise it’s worth it!
In the meantime, today is Reaper’s first bookiversary!
