The Reader/Writer: Looking Back

So today I turn one year older, and decided to just go over the past year on how my writing/reading life has been.

I've reviewed 27 books since March 16 of last year. I read much more than I review, but the past winter I was able to find some great authors and some more amazing reads. This year I am doing a 100 book challenge, and am already halfway through -50 total. (May need to up the count)  :) I wrote a short story for a contest in February (a Beauty and the Beast retelling) and am working on a Sleeping Beauty retelling. I'm also considering starting a Serial Story once or twice a month, but we'll see.

Pinterest has continued to bring up new story ideas. (I know I know. Why can't I just stay with one board, but as soon I get inspired by a picture I can't help but continue to create more ideas!)

Follow Soleil 's board Power persons story on Pinterest.

  Follow Soleil 's board Pirate story on Pinterest.

  Follow Soleil 's board Starwalker/Stargazer story on Pinterest.

  Follow Soleil 's board The Choice: story idea on Pinterest.

 And I can share with you guys some news I'm really excited about!! I, along with some others, are hosting a writing contest April 15- May 16. I'll be giving more details soon, but I can't wait to see what happens!
                
Hope you all are having a great week, and enjoy the weather!

  4. Happy (very belated) birthday! ;)
    I've loved seeing all the different pins you use for your stories! All the pins on pinterest seem to inspire more story ideas for me, instead of helping me finish the story I'm supposed to be working on. ;P
    Oh, the contest sounds like fun!! I'll be looking forward to the "more details" post! :D
