In my personal life…
I finally started making the centerpieces for my wedding. Need something to do with those ARCs? Wrap them in scrap book paper! But seriously, these books look amazing and I can’t wait to stack them up. Also-every time I tell people we’ll add the candle next to the book everyone responds with “BUT THEY’RE FLAMMABLE!” Like-uh huh-and did you forget about LEDs? Because they exist for that exact reason.
In my writing life…
As a punishment–er–present to myself this summer I am rewriting one of my pieces from a different character’s POV. I’m also currently working on two other peices, one of which is with Magdalyn Ann.
I’m hoping to finish the re-write this summer so that it’s done and I can focus on edits, but the other two pieces are still fresh little babies. One of them, I actually just pantsed a lot of it and it was amazing to just let my creativity ride. But I’m finally at a point that I have ten end-game scenes and only a few things to begin with and I’m looking for the bridge in between them.
As so the co-written piece: We are planning some bare bones with it and jumping around like bunnies on that thing. But I think we have to. We can’t both write the same scene and it works really nicely to connect my work to someone else’s. I’ve no idea how Maggie is holding up with that because she is not a jumper.
I’m becoming a jumper.
In my reading life…
I read–like–no books this month. That’s a lie. I read 3. I think. My history says 4. More like 4 1/2 since I’m still in the middle of one.

On the blog…
I’ve actually been pretty active this month and I’ve definitely delved more into the community. Especially now that it’s summer and I have the time to do so.
