Every accomplishment starts with a decision to try– unknown
In amongst the daily grind we must not forget about our own personal accomplishments. So as I speedily arrive to the end of this month, what have I been up to?
Beta Readers feedback
This month I received 4 chunks of feedback from my beta readers, 2 more pending which I expect in early March. Then I can start updating my current draft and engage with a copy editor for a final assessment.
To Self-Publish or not
Over the past few weeks I toiled with whether I should follow the #self-publish route. I follow that particular hashtag on Instagram and see so many wonderful stories. Closer to home a friend has self-published her first novel, you must check it out – Marriage Unarranged by Ritu Bhathal. [Well done again Ritu].
I made a list of independent self publishing companies in Kent and London, and when ready will float my book to them. I know there will be a mass of rejections coming my way but that won’t stop me from trying!
Keeping up the reading
I have remained persistent with my reading, finished the debut novel by Dawn French. You can read my review here.
Changing of my set of wheels
Last August my current car passed 11 years with me, what a journey we have had together. I used past tense because at the start of the year my mission was to change it. Last month I took some test drives but the price didn’t fit my budget, I was being honest with myself. This month has been much more positive and I am 99% sure my old friend and I will depart with something new taking its place.
How has your month been? Have you been able to tick off something on your list?
