October is zip for writing.
This month has been so crazy busy! It always is though as a lot of birthdays, anniversaries and the like fall in between these 30 days of the year. Even so, it has left me very little time to work on my book series which has me sad facing all over the place.
Luckily, I have found some inspiration with inktober and a flash fiction writing contest I am entering before the month is up.
Aside from lack of time to really focus on writing, I am super excited about my beta reader results for book 1. I have gotten two completed readers’ feedback, still waiting on one more. It’s been such an amazing experience and an enlightening one to boot! You always think your writing is incredible until someone else gets it in their hands. Seriously, I could not be happier with my little group of beta’s and appreciate them putting the time into reading my 70 chapter book. It took most of them a little over 2 months to finish it, but well worth the wait.
So in hindsight, I will not be publishing anything before the end of the year.
Even though I did not accomplish being published, I do not regret anything I’ve done so far this year for my book series. It has been such an incredible learning experience. It takes a long time to get a book prepped and ready for the road to publication. I know I am not done learning just yet.
Thanks so much for following along on my little book journey! I hope yours is shaping up to be an incredible experience as well!
