Before I get too excited, I should probably recap May. I started out fairly strong, but then fizzled over the long Memorial Day weekend. *shrugs* I'm disappointed, but not distraught. Sometimes life gets in the way of writing. That said, I'm determined to get back on track in June.
Here's what I did this month:
~ Thanks to my brilliant CP, Natalie, I'm now an official user of Dropbox. It's a breeze to use. It makes exchanging critiques super easy. And it provides another way for me to backup my WIPs.
~ I added 25 random fun facts about me to my bio page. To read them, click on the "Meet Jena" tab at the top of this page.
~ I'm still working on revisions to chapter one of my Highlander novella. Gah, I'm such a slow writer! I did manage to hit the halfway mark, though, and I really like the changes I made. I hope Nat likes them too. I
~ I served as a judge for the Young Adult category of the Celtic Heart's annual Golden Claddagh contest. It was my first time judging a contest. I enjoyed the process, mostly because I like to critique but also because Natalie was the Young Adult category coordinator.
~ My dear friend came through surgery and is now cancer free! Her recovery is going well, which makes me very happy.
~ My hubby participated in his first ever road bike race. While he danced on the pedals, I stood at the finish line to cheer him on and snap photos. It was fun.
~ The hubby and I joined cycling fans at our local velodrome to watch the track races. Our favorite American pro cyclist, Tyler Farrar, was in attendance. We got to see him race and meet him face-to-face. It was a-maz-ing!
~ I received a jury summons. I've been summoned before, years ago. It wasn't an enjoyable experience. The selection process is agonizingly long; it's difficult to sit there for hours on end. The chairs are uncomfortable. People are grumpy. I intend to read and outline to pass the time. I hope it goes by quickly.
~ I read 3.5 books this month. All of them were YA novels. I'm due to read an historical romance soon. I attempted to read one a few weeks ago, but couldn't get past the first chapter. I hate when that happens.
How was your month? Did you do anything fun? Did you see any good movies? Did you read many books or meet your writing goals? Do share!
