#IWSG - May

Yikes, y'all.. It's IWSG Wednesday again!

I'm still recovering from the A-Z April Blogging Challenge. I did a day-by-day interactive fiction adventure. It was super fun, but kind-of exhausting. If you want to check it out, start at The Letter A. :)

The only thing really to report is A-Z and that I think I'm ready to dive back into my novel. My writing group did an amazing review of the first half back in February, so my plan is to get into their suggestions and make some fixes this week, and start writing the second half next week. After writing group last night I was raring to get back into it... but as soon as I got home I passed out lol ..better luck tonight!

If I get into grad school, the plan is to have the novel finished by the time classes start in August. Just to make it so that novel is not hanging over my head by then. It's a totally do'able goal! The first 40k words are already written, and it will probably only take another 50-60k to finish. So that's only 20k words/month. Easy peasy, right? Right.

How are y'all doing? For those of you who participated in A-Z, what are you doing to recover?

  3. You can be the best! (giggle. Parenthood)

    That actually does sound doable, though. And I LOVED your A-to-Z interactive story! It made me want to find and buy those old Choose Your Own Adventure books!

    Yeah, I didn't even think about writing last month. May is a good time to dive back in.

  9. AJ,

    I got a reminder email today to do the A to Z survey. I already did that, but maybe it was an across-the-board email, probably was. I had fun participating, as usual. I'm planning on visiting some of the blogs I wanted to get to and never had time for. Otherwise, it's back to writing two posts a week and working on my mystery novel in between working my PT job.

    Congrats to everyone who finished.

  10. Though I didn't do the A-to-Z, I did help put on a writer's conference in April. It took me a few weeks to recover, but I'm trying to catch up now. Good luck with finishing your novel!
