Monday Maunder: June 17, 2013


Surprise, surprise!!  I am still reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell!!  I'm almost half done though, so that has to count for something!!

What are you reading?


I finally wrapped up my tasks on Armchair BEA this last week!!  I also worked on a few tasks for Book Bloggers International.  Needless to say, I did not do much over here this last week, but I hope to change that this week.  Blogging will still be sparse until the beginning of August, but I will do what I can while I am mobile.

I have also been considering a Tumblr account.  I don't really want to add another thing to my list of things to do, but I thought it would be fun to also post my pictures from Instagram and to run in conjunction with my upcoming feature (being announced this week).  Before I sign up, however, I want to hear your thoughts.

Do you use Tumblr?  Why or why not?  Pros/cons?  How do you see if differently from other social media sites?


Good news here!  I finally got all caught up on my freelance pieces this last week!!  As soon as I hear if and when they get published, I will keep you posted here!

My current freelance gig is locally-based, and I will be moving very soon to a completely different state.  I would love to explore more freelance options and plan to do so once I get settled.

Do you have any leads or recommendations on freelance opportunities?


Let the chaos begin!!!  Two weeks from today, we will have moved into our new place and I will be hitting the road for a little trip with my kids.  Boxes are strewn around my house.  We are drastically down-sizing and getting rid of lots of furniture items.  I am ready for this new adventure to begin!!

I will finally be posting my new summer feature this week as well as finally posting my "plan" for the next year.  I really look forward to sharing these two pieces with you!!

How was your week?  Relaxing or chaotic?


  1. I posted about a few months back. I think they are still looking for writers. Enjoy your time. I'm starting my first draft, so you know what I'll be doing for the next couple months. ;)

    1. Amateur Novelist ... Thanks for the reminder!! I will check it out!

      Good luck with your first draft!! I am still following your site and will be cheering you on (just without the comments)!! :)
