Sniff! Snort! Sneeze! Cough! I've had my allergies under control for a very long time but this year, allergy season has hit and hit big time. Have been feeling like I'm battling a long term cold for a while now, which of course has been messing with my productivity. Know it's allergies though because the antihistamine works and the decongestants don't. *sigh*
Brain fog has led me to coming online to write a blog post and end up instead reading celebrity gossip. I'll admit it. I've become addicted to Daily Mail's showbiz and X17. Let's just say it's research for my next wip. *grin*.
Finishing up my critting class through Savvy Authors this week and have gleaned much about critiquing and how to be critiqued. It's been quite a learning experience. Still editing Eyes in the Ashes and the plan is to finish the 2nd edit by the end of June. It has been rather slow going but making progress and the story taking on more shape and learning more about my characters. The critiques for the Kill Zone gang and critting class have been tremendously helpful.
Reading wise, I discovered Devon Monk's Allie Beckstrom series and read all eight books in the series in the past couple weeks. Now just have to wait until November for the final episode Magic for a Price to come out in November. Meanwhile have plenty of other stories to keep me occupied. Dared my 52 Books group to read "The Great Gatsby" along with me, since this week highlighted literary style modernism. Interestingly enough, Leonardo DiCaprio is starting in the movie version which will be coming out at the end of the year.
