The latest = Didn't reach the 2000 word goal like I wanted to, but I managed 1600. It's been a long week and I have gotten behind on a lot of things. I may be enjoying my new job but I have let a lot of things slide lately. I realized last night that I need to go back to making lists to take care of things needing done. Finishing books (as you can tell above, I haven't gotten ahead this week, and I only added one more because I read part of it when I downloaded it from NetGalley), writing reviews, scheduling the Scarlet Read-Along (by the way, don't forget to sign up!), reorganizing my clothes (packing up summer and putting out winter... *facepalm*... if you can't tell, I'm not a fan of winter), online sales... It's all just one big mess that needs straightened out. I'm trying to take it all one step at a time.

I have to say though, that I'm working on two special writing projects. One I've wanted to do for a long time, the other just came to me recently as a possibility and I think it will help me get through moments of writer's block. I'll tell you guys more about it soon. ;)

Until next time!



  1. I hope you can get everything sorted out soon. I think I'm finally starting to adjust...although having a few days off this week definitely helped. Lists are good...I have a million going at once and keep adding to them so I need to figure out a way to streamline them lol.

    Yay for writing projects! I can't wait to hear about them. <3

    1. Me too! I just haven't buckled down and realized how behind I was. Now that I have, I'll be able to get things done. :)

      I can't wait to tell everyone about them! Once I get them partway done, then I'll post about it. ;)

  2. YAY JESS! Keep writing like you are, girl!


    1. Thanks sweetie! :) And I am enjoying UTNS! ;)

  3. It's so good to have a job but I hate the time it sucks from our lives. I haven't finished a book for weeks! :(

    1. I can relate to how you feel now! I'm still able to read a little bit before bed, but I wish it could be more like before.


Thank you for commenting and happy reading!
