July #WriteMotivation: Week 3 Check-in

In serious news: My prayers go out to the victims of the Aurora shooting and their families. This horrible act just breaks my heart.

In less serious news: I had a guest review posted on Smart Bitches, Trashy Books this past weekend, for Courtney Milan’s Unveiled for the RITA Reader Challenge.

In completely unrelated news: Apparently this blog posts marks #125. Huzzah?

July goal updates:

1) Finish August Buzz articles by July 13.

2) Read 1 book a week.
And this past week has been:
Nether Bound by Bonnie Rae
Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett
Blameless by Gail Carriger

Guards! Guards! lived up to the hilarious first three pages (which is all I’d read when I posted last week). It’s absolutely brilliant, and if you ever wondered what it would sound like if Douglas Adams wrote a fantasy novel, well…this is your answer.

Must…find…more…Discworld!

3) Update blog twice a week.
Last week I got two updates in, and I’ve got one scheduled and (hopefully) two more to add. I think I can keep this pace up through July, but I think it’ll slow down again come August and Camp NaNo. Yes, again. Yes, I’m crazy.

What are you guys reading? Anything I should add to my list?

  1. Awesome progress, Michelle! Simply Awesome! πŸ˜€

    Have you heard of Naomi Novik and her Temeraire series? It’s about Dragons during the Nepoleonic war! πŸ˜€ I ❀ Temeraire! Although, this latest book is just getting me with her use of the colon! Ugh!

      I’ve read the first two books in the series, His Majesty’s Dragon and Throne of Jade. Really enjoyed them both, but just never picked up the next book. I take it the series continues being awesome? πŸ™‚
