My only consolation writing this report is I only have one more report to go before I actually have something to report.

WIP Issues This Month:
My WIP was at the backburner this month, sadly. However, I thought about my characters a lot, and the general direction of my novel, especially with regards to diversity. I believe my whole body of characters are well diverse, but now, I’m having second thoughts in the order they should proceed. So I think—even though what I’m about to write may not make a lot of sense—instead of starting the series with the story of the daughter of the twelfth (as it is with my current WIP), I would have to start with daughter of the first.
Although of course, like I wrote last month, I don’t think any much writing or solid plotting can happen until August, which is when I’ll be done with my exams.
Four things I learned this month while writing:
Some prologues can actually be interesting.
What distracted me this month while writing:
Wrote one of my two exams on the 12th of June, and have the other that I’m hoping to write end of July, all things being equal. So there wasn’t much time left between studying, doing my rotation, attending volunteering orientations, and generally living.
Goal for next month:
My goal for July is a bit weird, but I want to make time and study as much as possible so I can actually be done with my exams end of July and get back to writing in August.
Can’t wait to read how everyone’s writing went this month, and get inspired all over again!
