The only good thing about this month is that it’s the last time I’ll not have words to report. *knock on wood*. So please bear with me. ❤ I also look forward to joining word sprints on Twitter again (they helped me a lot during my first draft), and you know, actually getting words written.

WIP Issues This Month:
Nothing much to complain this month, sadly. This was another non-writing month because my brain seems to be less able to multitask the closer my exams are. However, I do have a writing-related issue. I’d love to save everything on my computer to an external drive, so my old Sony Vaio runs faster. I’m wondering if there is a way I could save Scrivener to my external drive without losing all the thousands of words I’ve written so far?
Four things I learned this month while writing:
Didn’t write, but I read a bit of this book called Unglued by Lisa Terkeurst, and she said something about striving on, one day at a time to get to where we want to be. So I’m taking the same lesson to heart about writing. I might be unbearably slow, but I’ll be steady. I might be distracted and overwhelmed by other things I need to attend to, but I won’t lose sight of this dream.
What distracted me this month while writing:
Studying (postponed my exams to middle of August, because I don’t feel sufficiently ready yet). Oh and I did visit Florida on the Fourth of July weekend to see Harry Potter World. Loved it! Also, traveling to Barbados next weekend, and moving to Chicago when I come back the week after! So it has been a bit hectic running around for all these different things.
Goal for next month:
I should have a lot of time in the world once I get done with my exam mid next month (so yay for something to report!).
Can’t wait to read how your month in writing went , and live vicariously through you!
