Breaking Two Thousand

My friends, I have written 2,020 words of fiction this week, which marks the first time in months I’ve broken the 2k barrier. This gives me a grand total of 4,957 words for January. You all have permission to begin basking in my awesomeness. I am no closer to a title this week than I was last week, though I do have a fancy new haircut.

I’ve done a lot of thinking about Civil Blood and book reviews, which is just a fancy way of saying I didn’t work on either of them last week. I know, I know—fail. But failure is how you learn, right? Both of the projects are back on the work schedule for the weekend, and I’m being even more ambitious by adding a second book review to my plate. By the time spring comes around, I will be reviewing a book every two weeks at least, goshdarnit.

I’m really excited about book reviewing, current failures notwithstanding. There are several new YA books coming out in the next couple of months that look interesting and that actually feature people of color in starring roles. I’m thrilled to buy the books and review them, and I hope they measure up to my expectations.
