March was a fantastic start to this spring! (Although if you’re in a southern state like I am, it pretty much just launched in summer temperatures.) 😀
Here’s a quick update on what I did last month. This full plate was overloaded with ice cream because of all the celebrations! (And it being one of the only things I could eat recovering from oral surgery.)
Beta-read and read for review:
Choices for Max (four stars)
Far Away Faye (three stars)
I’m also 3/4’s of the way through an advanced reader copy of Shadows of the Hersweald. 😉
Princess Academy (four stars)
Danger Goes Berserk (four stars)
Among the Hidden (three stars)
Palace of Stone (five stars)
The Reluctant Godfather (four stars)
As far as my never-ending Sherlock Holmes reading, I finished The Valley of Fear (brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!) and now I’m reading His Last Bow.
Emails and a few Facebook messages
Blog and Facebook comments
“Ice cream” requests from the party! 😀

Optimal vlog length (5-10 minutes)
How nuns greet each other
Dyslexia and the FBI

Word definitions and how-tos coming out of my ears–always.
About 600 words on a collaborative story
500 words on an essay for a test (I got to use a Sherlock reference, so that was great!) 😀

600 words on a new short story

A little more of a friend’s novel
We were very busy last month with “spring cleaning”, a yardsale, and all those small details that must happen but are always forgotten. 😉 And there was my FANTASTIC birthday. 😀 (One of my enormously cute nephews even wore a “My Aunt Rocks” shirt. How much sweeter can you get?) This month I’m looking forward to celebrating Easter with family and friends, finishing an audiobook I started listening to, tackling some more beta-reading projects, and finishing up that contest story. The big news is–I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo to finish editing “The Twin Arrows”! First time on a NaNo challenge. 😉 Wish me luck!
How was your March? What are you looking forward to this month?
