Reading Corner

October Reading Corner

It was another fairly slow month and I didn’t get as much reading done as I wanted to. I teetered on the edge of a few reading slumps as well. Oh well, I’m in a decent enough position with my challenges and I suppose that’s what I get for trying to get through all the heavyweight books at once.

I seriously questioned whether I should take part in Nanowrimo this year. I just feel like I’m stuck in a redrafting rut and I don’t know if I’d get anything worthwhile out of this November. Still, I pulled myself together and decided to try a redraft of my second novel. Hopefully, laying down the plot later on in the series will give me some ideas of what to add to Book 1 and will help the story tie together better.
