It is Wednesday, so I'll give you all an update on the WiP. I just started chapter five the other night, and I'm still giddy about it; we haven't hit the rough patch yet, though I am right around 13k in. Progress, I'm making some. (I'd make more if I didn't have school. *grumbles*) Anyway, I'm having lots of fun with that. I told my lovely Alpha reader, Katie, what was going to happen with a character since she expressed worry and a certain iffy-ness; I think she hates me now. But in a god way, I hope.
In other news, I finally got Katie to admit that she's a writer, too. She's finally starting to post on her blog, and she has a wonderful "coming out" post that recounts her struggle with her writerly side. Katie also plans to start doing reviews on hr blog, so you should all go give her a chance. She's my bestie, and I'd like to show her how amazing the writing community really is.
My blog reached 91 followers today! I think that's awesome. :) And scary, because I always thought I would do a contest when I reached 100, but I don't think that's financially possible at this point. SO, instead I'm going to hold off until next semester (mid-August) and we'll see where we're at then. In the mean time, I'm open to suggestions. Personally I like winning books and writing swag. What would you like the chance to win? A gift card? A book? Inquiring minds (actually just inquiring mind, but who says that?) want to know! Just keep in mind I'm a college student and I don't have awesome connections (meaning I don't get ARCS lol).
Alright, moving on. I'm currently in the process of reading Percy Jackson #4, but I'm super busy so I've technically been reading it for about a week now. It's ridiculous. Anyway, since I haven't reviewed the previous books, I was thinking about taking a step back and reviewing them all before I review the fourth one instead of just jumping straight into the next to last book in the series. So look for those. I'll try to post one every week. And actually, I'm going to try posting reviews on Thursdays if I have one that week.
I know, I know, Amanda following a blogging schedule, what? I'm doing my best people. :) Any teasers will be posted on Tuesdays, though I do not foresee participating in that every week, and Wednesdays will continue to be reserved for WiP updates. I'll try to be more consistent with those, too. Mondays and Fridays are still up in the air, and I won't be posting on weekends since so many people are unplugging these days. If you have suggestions or requests for Monday and/or Friday posts just let me know; I aim to please!
