Happy Wednesday, everyone! Thanks to everyone who dropped in and commented on Monday's entry, Followers Blog Hop. It was great meeting all you new people, and I'll still be trying to hop round to all your blogs.
I'm continuing with my new posting schedule, this time with Working Wednesday, where I talk about what I've been doing in terms of my WiP, and my internship at Curiosity Quills.
The internship is going great. I've really settled in, get along well with my colleagues, and I *think* I have a good grasp of the ins and outs of social media. Things at CQs are expanding a little, with a lot going on behind the scenes, and I want to help with that. Which is why this week, I'm brain-storming ideas on how I can improve the social media aspects, and make a better, more personal, connection with our audience. Hopefully I'll have some ideas to suggest to my bosses later on in the week.
Writing wise, I haven't done much. I'm still trying to adjust to a new schedule that includes working for CQs. Additionally, I've hit the point in my read troughs where I feel I can't do much more on my own. I need someone to bounce ideas off. I've given the first act to a friend for her to beta read, and she's given me some excellent feedback, I'm just trying to work out how to apply that feedback. Revisions is the hardest part of writing for me. I don't always want someone to hold my hand, but at the moment, I like working with my Hubby so we can discuss ideas and he can offer me guidance. One thing he suggested is studying other books in the genre, not just reading them, but really studying them paragraph by paragraph and making notes. So that's what I've been doing this week. Hopefully looking at some of my peers, and studying how they do it, will help me improve my own story.
What has everyone been up to this week? What projects are you working on? Are there areas you're finding difficult or testing? What about areas you're really enjoying? I'd love to hear all about it.
If you'd like, check my personal blog for Favourites Fridays, where I'll be talking about what TV shows/ books/ movies and video games I've been enjoying this week, and what I've been getting up to with Hubby and our boys.
