Writer’s LifeI wrote a poem in iambic tetrameter, power-edited through the end of my then-active WIP and burned myself out. Spent the next couple of weeks just editing fan fiction and giggling at my own jokes.
Beginning yesterday (Sunday) I’ve activated my magical accountant WIP and plan to have a 35,000 word manuscript by the end of July. That sounds totally unimpressive but this is what has worked so far.
Reader’s LifeMy favorite books that I read this month were The Bestseller Job by Greg Cox and Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie We’re In Trouble! by Christiana Miller.
I’m currently reading The Neverending Story, which I’m about halfway through and I don’t think I want to keep going because it is getting to a rather boring part. I was promised moral ambiguity and instead it is lackluster. I’m also reading Extraordinary Means, and if I haven’t read your review yet it’s because I don’t want to taint my opinion just yet.
The best movies I watched this month were The Giver (again), The Book of Life, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, Maleficent, Robin Hood (with Javert), Inside Out, and The Imitation Game. I realize that 71% of those are children’s movies but there’s an art to children’s movies that isn’t always required by adult movies.
Fangirl’s LifeWe talked ‘bout V for Vendetta and Phantom of the Opera, Clintasha, godly parents (as inspired by Percy Jackson), and Lord of the Rings. So far the topics have not been poorly received, and people keep voting, so that sounds okay with me.

- various other posts in my to-do file—I need to really do some hardcore polling to see where I should do some prioritizing
Also, I am currently locked out of my Twitter account because I’m of the 1% that does not have a cell phone. Probably it’s because I tweet more links than personal updates, but who wants to read my personal updates? That is silliness. I’ll have to think of interesting things to say if I use my account again…
