Time for Round 2
This round, my goal is to start a daily writing practice.  I am starting by completing Blogging University's Writing 101 through The Daily Post.  I will be posting on my blog daily using the prompt and twist provided.  I will also be continuing to work on my reading goal of 30 books this year.

2.  On Writing by Stephen King

After reading Stephen King's book about writing, I immediately wanted to read a Stephen King novel.  I'm reading The Shining.  I am hoping to learn something about how Stephen King writes a man's descent into madness and gain some inspiration for the first revisions of ZF.  By the way, I am halfway to my reading goal for the year!!  Yay!!
What are you reading this week?


  1. great job on being halfway to your reading goal. That's great

  2. I'm currently reading "Enchanted Again" by Robin D. Owens. Really enjoying it and would recommend if you're into paranormal romance. Next up I plan to read a contemporary romance set in a fictional town as inspiration for my own romance series that's, well, set in a fictional New England town. Good luck with creating a daily writing routine!

    1. Thank you for the recommendation. I will check that out :)
