Absentee

As you may have noticed, I've been some what distant the last two months.  I could blame a plethora of reasons, including vacation, finals, SATs, and recently discovering the show Supernatural, but I'm not going to blame any of those things, because I am responsible for my own actions or lack there of in the blogging sphere.

So all that being said, for the summer, from Memorial Day to Labor day, you can expect posts only once a week, either Monday or Thursday.  There may be the occasional Saturday Inspiration, but those types of posts will be short and sweet.

I would really like to focus on reading and writing this summer.  While I got a lot of writing done last summer, I also wasted a lot of time, and I don't want to do that this year.  My goal is to edit at least one if not 2 novels, and I'd love to finish my current first draft as well, but for now I'm taking a break from that draft to go edit.

Thanks for understanding, and have a great summer!  What writing goals do you have for this summer?  Any exciting writing or reading related plans?  Leave a comment or write up your own summer plans post and leave the link in the comments!

  1. Writing goals- mostly to finish my two WIPs and write some kind of Goldstone Wood fanfiction so I can enter the fanfiction contest. I have ideas, but my time keeps getting taken up by my WIPs. As for reading-related plans, I have a whole host of new books that I want to read. :D And I have a very busy June because of vacay and a dual-enrollment course I'm taking. So, yeah. I'm excited. :D
    Good luck with your writing!

    1. I have always wanted to enter a writing contest, but never summoned up the nerve to do it. Best of luck to you in all your writing goals for the summer!

  2. I have so many WIPs that I despair of ever finishing one.... so I just keep starting more :D
    Reading goals are to somehow get my hands on a copy of that new book by John Green everyone is talking about and see if it's worth the paper. It better be. I already had a pretty bad letdown with Divergent. :(

    1. The first few years I was writing I had the same problem, Ajax. I finally had to force myself not to start a new project until I finished one of my current projects, and it worked! I finally finished a novel, not because I always wanted to work on it, but because I wanted to work on other stuff and knew I had to finish a WiP before I could do that.
      I liked The Fault in Our Stars, if that's the John Green novel you're talking about, but then again, I also liked Divergent, so maybe my tastes aren't to be trusted.

  4. I plan on doing Camp NaNo in July. And just writing a lot in general. And there are a lot of books that I need to read…especially those written by people from GTW.

    1. I totally forgot about Camp NaNo in July. At first I wasn't going to do it, but now I'm starting to re-think that. Maybe I'll set a high goal and try to edit that many words in my novel. Yes, I too need to read many a book writing by GTW persons.

  5. I would like to finish the first draft of my first novel (which I'm working on right now). Then, I'll take a break from that draft and write a fairy tale retelling for Camp NaNo in the meantime. Then, I hope to edit my first novel draft while I take a break from the Camp NaNo draft. I might even write some short stories to send to some magazines. Overall, I'm just hoping to make this summer really productive writing-wise.

    1. That sounds like a great plan, Ana! I feel like finishing the first draft of your first novel is a huge step in a writing career. Best of luck to you!

  6. Supernatural. *dies a little inside* I only discovered it this year and I AM SO OBSESSED I CAN'T EVEN. Not even sorry. Nope. Just heartbroken mostly. ;)
    I hope you can get some stuff started on your goals! I need to get more motivated to write too. *sigh* Sometimes I'm really really keen on it, but mostly I'd rather lie around and read other people's books. It's so much easier. ;)
    Thanks for commenting on Notebook Sisters! I kind of know you from GTW (the facebook group too, right?!) and I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of your blog. x)

    1. Yep, I hang around the GTW FB groud quite a bit. In fact, I think I once critiqued a query letter for you. I know what you mean about writing. My reading slumps always correspond with my writing peaks and vice versa. Sometimes I just get so lazy, and/or there are too many great books I want to read.
