Look at me. All grown up.
My other fantastic accomplishment today was "hiking" the Pink trail in the Staten Island Greenbelt (that's where the cool picture is from). I put "hiking" in quotes because the pink trail isn't much of a hike (if it was, I'd probably be in traction right now instead of comfortably writing to you with nothing more than a headache); it's more like a walk around the block, if you lived in the middle of the woods. It's all flat, with a nice trail carved out for you. The "challenges" in the walk come from a slightly swampy section and the ticks that felt free to jump from the trees onto my hand and my husband's head! (Strangely, the two dogs came out tick-free!)
Getting back to my writing and reading life,
- I am happy to say I posted my first short story, Prove It!, for the #52Stories Writing Challenge and I have gotten a bunch of feedback on it, but now I'm hard at work developig story number two!
- I am learning tons about my own writing from my online writing workshop on critiquing through SavvyAuthors.
- I am on target to finish a number of books for my Goodreads reading challenge by the end of April, and
- I am working on a new book club for the Word of the Nerd website that I am very excited about!
