Adventures With Words

In which much reading and writing is meant to be done…


So it’s been a little while since I did anything hear other than review what I’m reading. Time to do that, right?

First, I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo again this month. I did a 50k novel that is a pain the ass to edit in April, but I did it successfully, so I came back for more self-torture. You can alter your word count goals in Camp months so I’m aiming for 35k and an easier time editing. We’ll see what happens.

Anybody else doing Camp NaNoWriMo?

In other news, I’ve joined the 21st century and got a Kindle. I still like ink and paper books best of all, but I can see the value of e-readers. I suppose. As much as it pains me to say that. And it really does pain me.

Let’s see, what else?

I’m reading East of Denver by Gregory Hill right now, a book I won in a giveaway on Goodreads. The back of the book describes it as “darkly comic” and that’s exactly what it is. I love the book, and I really can’t stop reading it.

Are you all on Goodreads? This is me, if you want to follow me there. I’ll definitely follow back.

I think that’s it for now. I’ll let you know if I think of anything else.

Are you all reading any good books right now? I’m always open to recommendations.

  1. I am avoiding the camp nano this time around. Still editing the ms from last time. I respect anyone who can do this more than once a year!

    1. Yeah, I had to take a break from editing so I sent it off to a friend for a feedback and moved on to a new idea. I’m so bad at editing. Good luck with your editing!
