Hello gentle reader,
It is time for another weekly check-in! I hope you had a great and productive week…
Quote of the Week
“I’m not running away. But this is one corner in one country in one continent in one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that is a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And this is so much, SO MUCH, to see, Amy. Because it goes so fast. I’m not running away from things. I’m running to them before they flare and fade forever.”
Doctor Who, The Power of Three written by Chris Chibnall
Picture of the Week
Gordon Square, London by my friend Lea
My goal for this round is to write every day. This week again I managed to write
6 days out of 7.
Word Count of the Week
This week I added 2250 words to my Work In Progress. I don’t know… it was a slow week.
Book of the Week
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (YA Historical Fantasy/Steampunk)
This week I finally started to read the first book in The Infernal Devices series. And so far I like it!
Good News of the Week
I had a lot of good news this week! First I won not one but TWO query critiques, one by The Writer Diaries ladies and one by Lit Agency Intern Lauren Spieller. I also celebrated the first anniversary of my blog with a book giveaway. Finally the lovely Vikki Thompson gave me the Very Inspiring Blog Award. I had already received it back in November 2012 and you can read my post here.
