Previously... (1)


Previously... is a monthly recap bloghop of your writing month hosted by Miss Cole and Tracey Joseph! These posts go up on the last Wednesday of every month. Don't forget to link-up at one of the host blogs!

I always miss this, but since I've been rather productive this month, I'm glad I remembered to join!


Previously in Writing

I've been meaning to get back to novel writing for ages, and while I still haven't opened up that doc yet, I've been on a poetry kick. Leave it to me to procrastinate from writing by...writing something else!

In any case, I've written 4 poems in about 2.5 weeks. Finished 3 of them, one of which has been subbed, and am trying to wrangle the last into shape. The poem is currently kicking my butt.


Previously in Reading

Getting back into reading as well and kind of balancing reading novels and comic books. On the comic book front, I picked up Volume 3 of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, and I'm in the middle of reading Mike Carey's LUCIFER series. I'd like to read Holly Black's current run of Lucifer eventually, and I'm watching the not-really-at-all-like-the-comicbook TV series too - all of which has prompted me to finally start Carey's run (which I'd been meaning to do for ages). Lucifer is, after all, my favorite fallen angel. ;)



Books-wise, I just finished the fantastic SIX OF CROWS by Leigh Bardugo (and you should check out the cover for the sequel CROOKED KINGDOM because it is beautiful), and I'm currently reading A GATHERING OF SHADOWS, Victoria Schwab's follow-up to the excellent A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC.


Next Time in Goals

Start working on the novel!
Brainstorm short story ideas!
Finish the poem that is owning me!


A Word of Advice

Sometimes, your muse will take what you're working on in unexpected directions. Go with it. :)

That's a lot of poems! I hope you get good news from the sub ^_^

I have neglected reading a lot this month. Hopefully next month will be better :D

Good luck with your goals. May March be super productive.

SIX OF CROWS is absolutely amazing. I can't wait for CROOKED KINGDOM!

Hopping in on the Previously this week to say hi! *Waves* I love Leigh Bardugo and have also been really really wanting to rea a Darker Shade of Magic, I've heard so many good things!

Super impressed with how many poems you're writing ... poetry is so beyond my capabilites at the moment, but I adore them, and novels in verse. My current favorite in that vein is Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson. Have you read it? Love.

I'm so excited to read A Gathering of Shadows! I also have both A Six of Crows and The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 1 on my shelf waiting to be read. I really, really enjoyed the Lucifer comics. I can't see myself watching the show though; I'm so picky about 'adaptations' haha and I know I'd be constantly annoyed since it's basically nothing like the comics.
