So, where do I start? I made some writing progress with MINGLED, my YA paranormal dystopian.
Last week - 32,000 word count
This week - 45,000 word count
That's great progress, however, sadly, I'd hit around 51,000 (the end) when I kerfuffled and lost the last 10k words. This led to my blogfest fail. I intended to participate in Can You Hit a Perfect Pitch at Brenda Drake's blog. But you have to have a completed MS. Which was no longer the case for me. I did come up with a pitch:
Ever the odd girl out, Macie's chosen as a Special and forced to face her Fae heritage. If she can't control her powers and find freedom, the Collective will capture her for their own plans.
#writemotivation - I'm close to finishing my first book and recently received a second book to help me meet my 2 book a month goal for reading. I'm also beta reading a great sci-fi so, if I add that, I'll actually have 3 books. I scored alright in the social media area. Met the basic goals to post 3 times and comment on 10 to 15 other blogs that week.
I'm a bit drained from riding high on word count then being robbed by the word count thief (Save is now my lover). Sugar-Honey-Iced-Tea happens (I love Madagascar!)
To bring this to a happy close, I want to thank the lovely Sara Bulla over at Live to Write...Edit When Necessary for choosing me for the Versatile Blog Award. What she wrote truly touched my heart:
"Her post today, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. is indicative of all her posts. She's thoughtful, humble, determined and grateful to be able to pursue her own dream. I admire her and have benefited from her comments. Thanks Angela!
To say I felt good after reading this would be an understatement. I thought my cheeks would burst from grinning ear to ear. I'm so honored.
Because I've done the random things and give/pass/share love a time or two, I'll just say this: Happiness=Anime!!!!!!! I could watch Balsa in Moribito or listen to Johnny Yong Bosch do the voice of Ichigo in Bleach all...day...long. He also did an excellent job in Code Geass as LeLouch/Zero.
Alright, enough rambling about progress, do share if you've ever watched any anime. If so, do you have a favorite show or movie?
