Making Progress!

Hello all!

I’m pretty excited about what I’ve been accomplishing. Usually, finding motivation is a struggle for me, so I’m rather pleased about what I’ve done lately. As you know, Freelance Writing Guide is sitting on the back burner for a couple of weeks until it’s time to begin the second revision. In the meantime, I’ve been working almost every day on Chronicles of a Troubled Girl. I now have only two (out of fourteen) journals left to transcribe. Today I worked on the manuscript for more than 3 1/2 hours. As I’m typing up my journal entries, I find them really interesting, and I hope you will too.

It looks like Freelance will be published in August. I’m thinking about what type of cover I will do for it. I want it to look really sharp and professional, as it is a reference guide for professionals. For the ebook cover I recently did for My Not-So-Ordinary Life, I found the image on Dreamstime, so I will consider them for my next cover.

I do not know when Chronicles will be published yet, as it is larger than Freelance and a completely different kind of book. When I edit it, I will have a better idea about the publication date.

I’ve been flying through my reading as well. I published reviews for the two books I had scheduled for this month by July 19th, so I started a third book that I picked out myself. It is called The Chaosifier. It is a fantasy book that is well-written, descriptive, and creative. I really like it so far. The review will be posted next week.

I hope to keep my productivity up so that I can get my books out to you. Plus, I really would like to wrap them up, because I don’t like loose ends. And I have other books I plan to write, and I would like to write a fictional novel sometime. I’m thinking of taking a class in fiction writing, since I’m not skilled at it and don’t know what I’m doing :)

Have a great Sunday!
