Weekly Writing & Reading Recap: March 13 - March 19

7:00 PM


It took a little while to get back on track, but I'm excited to announce that the Weekly Writing & Reading Recaps are back on!

Monday
So far I'd say today is off to a good start! I've already managed to schedule two blog posts and now I'm going to get a little reading time in :) Next up, I worked on my new story binders and even got a little bit of writing in! And of course, I finished the day off with some reading too!

Tuesday:
Well guys, today was exhausting! It's only 10 o'clock and I can't stop yawning :/ Honestly, I'm probably gonna head to bed soon, but I have to admit it's been a pretty productive day! I went to the chiropractor, the dentist, office depot, ross, and the mall! Then I came home, organized my story binders, and finished the book I've been reading! A little art of me was tempted to start another one tonight, but realistically, I probably wouldn't remember any of it in the morning. Plus, I still have four book reviews to write!

Wednesday
After yesterday, it took me a little bit to recover this morning, but it's nothing that a couple episodes of Charmed couldn't fix. Then of course, it was lunch time so I postponed work for a tiny bit longer, but after that, I was ready to work! I have to admit, it started out rough. I rewrote the same scene four or five times before making any real progress, but I did end up with over 900 new words for my debut novel! Then I decided to take a break and read until dinner. More than likely, I'll stick with that pattern for the rest of the day :)

Thursday
Well guys, today wasn't as productive as I was hoping that it would be, but it was still pretty great! I spent a TON of time working on my upcoming anthology and I'm getting a bunch of details sorted out. I even played around with Photoshop for a while designing a possible cover :) Of course, that didn't leave too much time for writing, so I plan to spend the rest of the night reading!

Friday
How is it Friday already?! I feel like I just got here and now my writing retreat is almost over! Will someone please share with me how to stop/rewind time?! It would be much appreciated! Well, now that I've exhausted that opportunity, I better get to work! So far today, I've spent a decent amount of time reading, trying to keep my eye from twitching, and looking into possible anthology submissions!  I know I should be working on my current novels, but I can't help that feeling of wanting to be published as soon as possible and a short story could get me there! Or at least I hope it can :)

Saturday
Today started out with a little bit of self care! I followed my usual morning social media routine, but then I took the extra time to watch one of my favorite creators and Instagrammers on the live feed. We chatted about depression and how to overcome it as well as various other topics. Once the live stream ended, I immediately got to work! I polished off a couple of blog posts, both for this website as well as Perfectly Ambitious, and then I took a lunch break :) After that, I spent some time reading and working on a couple up my upcoming anthology submissions! Overall, I'd say it was a pretty successful day!

Sunday
After an amazing vacation dedicated to reading and writing, it was nice to take the day off. Tomorrow I'll get back to the craziness that is my life, but for today, I actually got to relax! I cleared out of the Airbnb, got a pedicure, went out to lunch, and spent the rest of the day watching Charmed. Overall, I'd say that it was a pretty great end to the week! Of course, I would have liked to avoid the headache, but it wasn't anything I couldn't handle!

Weekly Wrap-up 
This week was probably one of the most productive weeks I've had yet! I managed to finish reading three books and I worked on various writing projects! Honestly, I wish I could have weeks like this all the time, but I'm thankful for the one that I was able to have and I've got my fingers crossed for any future adventures too! I can't wait to see what next week has in store for me :)
