May was easier-going than April. After that fall, my foot is doing much better now; almost back to normal except for the injured bump on the side, lol.
May and June so far have been all about getting my WIP ready, as I’d really like to publish it next spring. This includes drafting up a book cover and creating a website for the series. Two tasks that are proving more difficult than I anticipated. I do have some ideas now, but they will have to be tested first before anything is finalized. It is a lot of trial and error, at the moment. *wipes brow* Other than that, and getting the garden and flower barrel ready for summer, not much happened life-wise in May. I’m a boring person sometimes. 😛
This post is part of the Monthly Wrap-up Round-up link up! Here are my results for May 2016:
Writing Progress: “V. Chronicles”
I am currently revising Draft #4, and am on page 128 out of 239 on my 8×11 Word doc! I am waaay overdue for a Behind The Scenes post, it just hasn’t been easy finding time. But I will have to post it soon as I have an exciting announcement to make!
Those of you who have been following my blog for a long time might remember how much trouble I was having coming up with a proper title for this WIP. Well, it finally has a title! I am thrilled! I’ll announce it to you all in the next Behind The Scenes Post. 🙂 Newsletter subscribes will get to hear it first, so keep checking your email inbox!
The serial series Madnes Solver has been posting twice a month, according to the BlogBattle’s new schedule. The story is currently going through The Floating Isles Arc.

Stay tuned. 😉
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just came out for rent, and it’s…well, words can’t describe it. The title alone says it all, lol. The humor was fitting for a zombie movie, and surprisingly the story plot was carried along well and reminded me very much of the original Pride and Prejudice (except for the undead, of course). And the fight between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth was epic! During the scene when he first proposes to her, acting like a complete pompous jerk, in this movie she throws books at him and takes up a sword and gives him what-for! It was truly hilarious. If you watch nothing else of the movie, at least see this scene. XD
THINGS TO COME
I’m going to change up my blogging schedule a little bit. Here’s what I’ll try for this month:
- Monday: Weeklysmile
- every-other Tuesday: Blogbattle
- Thursday & Saturday (when available): reviews/tags/guests/other
- every-other Friday: Fishing for answers

How was your May? Any plans for June?
