Week in Review – 2013/08/19 – 2013/08/25

WRITING:

Happy fun times with my WIP, Aaralyn’s Song, the YA Fantasy wherein I’m playing with POV shifts. AugNoWriMo has been such a success. One week to go and lots more experimentation to enjoy.

Also, I’m submitting some short pieces by the end of the month. More polishing and tweaking and off they go.

READING:

I started reading The Spark by Kristine Barnett awhile ago and I got to finishing it. Such a great book. It got me looking into other inspiring non-fiction. I’m reading Daniel Tammet’s Born on a Blue Day next.

NETWORKING:

I’m combing #wipmadness#ROW80 and other threads to look for great blog posts and websites for my upcoming FRIDAY FORAGE series. I’m excited.

LEARNING:

SavvyAuthors‘ 2013 Summer Symposium blurred by so quickly. I downloaded all the lessons but it happened too fast for me to keep up with every single thread. Great stuff to dig through.

My Uke, Bilbo Watson, is still on the injured list but I’ll get that sorted this week.

In the meantime, I’ve reconnected with Duolingo. I’d like to think I can carry a conversation by the end of the year. I’ll eventually work on all the languages it has to offer. Best. Free. App. Ever!

 

August, we’re in the home stretch. 🙂

  1. Looks like lots of good progress happening. Yay! Hope Bilbo is off the injured list soon. And thanks for the Duolingo link–that looks really interesting, and I keep wanting to refresh my French (although I probably don’t need to be adding anything to my to-do lists!).

    • Bilbo is still on the injured list. I just haven’t had the chance to commute to the nearest Tom Lee (nearest ones are at least 30mins away in either direction with a bus/skytrain/bus combo). Sign up for French with Duolingo and add me on your buddy list. We can relearn together. 🙂
