My Weekly Update – Lovely, Loving, Love

Lovely

Last week I was beautiful.  Apparently, this week I am Lovely.  I have received the One Lovely Blog Award from not one but two of my favorite blogsperts (my made up word for blog experts).

Thank you so much to Vikki from The View Outside.  Vikki posts everyday and it is always interesting and entertaining.  I just love quality combined with quantity.

I also want to thank  Nicole from the The Madlab Post.  Nicole host the Monday Movie Meme.  I can’t wait to see what theme she comes up with each week to link movies.

The rules suggest that I share 7 items of interest about myself.  I am going to share 7 interesting facts about my JuNoWriMo WIP.

  1. The book takes place in China, New Orleans, New Jersey, New York, China, Texas & New Jersey again. 
  2. It is most definitely chick lit.
  3. It is funny.
  4. There is some very hot, seductive, spicy, rated PG-13 sex scenes in it an I blushed when I wrote it. 
  5. It is over 75,000 words long.
  6. There is an evil boss in the story.
  7. It has an ironic ending.

I have decided to give the award to my oh so Lovely JuNoWriMo Hosts:

Becca Campbell

A. E. Howard

And, my 13 Lovely New Followers below.

Loving

I am in a Loving kind of mood today.  I am loving that JuNoWriMo is done (I promise, I will stop talking about it after next Friday). I am loving the friends that I made through participating in this great challenge. I am loving that the first draft of my first novel is done and there is a lot of good content in there. I am really loving that I am not going to look at it again until September. I am loving that I have another novel idea in my head; can you say Camp Nanowrimo in August.

And, I am loving that I now feel like a writer.

For me, it was a Lovely Month!  How was yours?

  1. I am in awe that it’s possible to write a novel in a month. It’s an amazing accomplishment! I can only hope that someday I can do the same. Congratulations! (For the awards, too!)

    1. Hi Megan. Thanks so much. For me it was all about planning. I spent a month outlining and then when June came around, all I had to do was write, which was the fun part. There is a Camp NaNoWriMo coming up in August. Give it a try. Even if you don’t get 50,000, it is a lot of fun writing with other people and all that counts is getting words on the page.

  2. Congratulations on the award! Also, congrats on finishing your novel during JuNoWriMo – what an accomplishment! I’ve had fun following your writing journey on here and the participant interviews were great! I had a blast with JuNoWriMo myself and, while I didn’t reach 50k, I learned some really valuable things about pushing yourself to see how far you can go and what that kind of motivation does for a person’s writing. I heard about JuNoWriMo literally the day before, so I didn’t have the chance to prepare much and I knew my schedule was busy. Even so, I had nearly 30k! I’m so excited that I could burst!

    And I’m not quitting here. That’s key.

    Don’t quit.

    Keep going.

    1. Hi Amanda. Thanks so much. June was such a great month. I am really hyped about finishing my novel and can’t wait for the next step. But, I did put it away for the next two months in order to prepare for August Camp NaNoWriMo. I really like working in this manner. 30,000 is really great as well. Your absolutely right, don’t quit. You can do it. Look forward to hearing about your progress.

  3. LOVE! Thanks for sharing some of your WIP ~ intriguing! Looking forward to when it’s done and published so we can read more.

    Congrats on the awards, you are very lovely indeed!
