Week in Review – 12 November 2017

week-in-review-logo

It’s been another hectic week. After being in London again last weekend for Gollancz Fest (you can catch my write up here) I’ve been busy with volunteering, the blog, writing and trying to squeeze in some reading as well!

NaNoWriMo seems to be going reasonably well so far, I’m fractionally ahead on the word count and considering this book has a mind of its own and I’m struggling to keep it lined up with my outline I’m quite pleased I’m still churning chapters out!

I’m quite behind with reviews at the moment, I’m averaging about ten books waiting to be reviewed at any one time at the moment. So for any authors who know I’ve read their books and are waiting for the reviews, I am getting there but I’m reading quicker than I’m writing at the moment. For those whose books I’ve not read yet, my TBR is ridiculous right now and I’m reading as quickly as possible. I’m staying up until 2/3am most days reading to try and get through as many books as possible.

Next week I’m doing another radio interview about how I got into volunteering with the mental health walking group. I trained as a peer worker and walk leader to volunteer with the group, I’ll be talking about how I got to that point and how I use physical activity to help look after my mental health.

Here are this week’s book updates:

    1. I’m so glad I’m reading a lot but it’s a nightmare trying to keep up with the reviews! Then trying to decipher my notes when I do get to write them is a whole new challenge! πŸ˜‚
      I’m looking forward to the radio spot, there may be some TV coming up as well, I should find out later this week if it’s going ahead. 😣
