Finally it’s summer.

I feel like I’ve been waiting a millennium for this season to roll around and now it is actually here. 2020 I thought was going to be a whirlwind and, in a way, it definitely was, I’m just glad that the sun is here now and the heat and all the great feelings that only summer can bring. June was a busy month, so busy in fact I only got around to reading one book which is highly unusual for me. On the bright side though, did I mention it’s SUMMER???

(Me, for the next three months)

June Goals:

  1. Continue researching, world building, prewriting, plotting, and outlining my WIP! Check. World building brick by fucking brick.
  2. Stick with my NEW blog posting schedule!Check.
  3. Become more interactive on social media! Check.
  4. Continue making submissions with my writing! Check.
  5. Continue practicing the piano and my violin! Check.
  6. Do yoga every morning! Check, check, check. CHECK.

July (the month where there’s so many fireworks) Goals:

  1. Continue researching, world building, prewriting, plotting, and outlining my WIP! World building is time consuming it appears. As Kaz put it, “brick by brick” my dears, brick by fucking brick. Look forward to the writing update for this month! I’m sort of in love with doing this post because it is helping me keep more accountable for working on my WIP and that’s what I need!
  2. Become more interactive on social media! I’m using Twitter a lot more this year than I ever had and slowly stepping back into Instagram. Just got to keep building momentum with this and eventually it will become second nature. My handle is @jaiiiilynn4 for both so let’s connect!
  3. Continue making submissions with my writing! Just keep swimming.
  4. Continue to do yoga every morning! I feel good! My body feels so much better after incorporating this into my daily routine. Every morning I just. do. it. Then the stress pains stay away all day. Ha ha! Be gone pain!

What I Read:

God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World — and Why Their Differences Matter by Stephen R. Prothero. I originally picked this book up for research for my WIP but I found I loved it more than I would have thought. This book is so informative and really breaks down the major religions of the world into ways that we all can really understand. I highly recommend it for everyone to read, and really everyone should read this book. Information can only bring us closer to understanding one another whereas ignorance will only bring us apart.

What I’ll Be Writing:

  • Poetry- posted every Wednesday
  • Living Life vignettes- posted first Friday of the month
  • Writing Is Hard|WIP Writing Update- posted in the middle of the month
  • Snapshot! monthly recap- posted the last day of every month
  • Announcements- posted as needed

All of my fiction writings are independent of each other and stand alone so no need to read any of the previous work to understand. If you want more information about any of the above, you can check out the About page on my site or just click here.

My Round Up of June Posts:

All in all, I’m glad from the very core of my soul that summer is here. I hope it stays a long time…..

Till next time,

  1. WOW, you are a writing machine, girl!

    I cannot wait to see what lovely pieces you’ll share in July! I’ll be sure to catch up on all of your June posts until then.

I’m not on here every day, but I want to read all that you write–so that is helpful and wonderful πŸ™‚ I’m super intrigued about this WIP you’ve got going on! It’s a dream of mine to write a book one day and I love to hear all about other writer’s processes. You have accomplished so much!!

    YOGA EVERY DAY YES GIRL! I’ve drawn myself up a chart and I’m recommencing my 100 day yoga challenge as well as following along the 300-week course from Light on Yoga…yes 300 weeks…I made it to week 7 by April and then had to move living spaces so now I’m creaky and crackly as can be lol! You got this! I’m with you girl! Yoga is amazing…so healing. πŸ™‚

    Thank you so much for sharing my post here! That means so much to me, knowing that you appreciated my review enough to share it on your own blog. You are so kind, I am honoured! Whenever you get the chance to read it, I would love to hear your thoughts on The Road Less Traveled! It’s a great book. I will be adding God is not One to my never-ending TBR also! Thanks for the recommendation! I feel like we have a similar taste in books so I trust whatever you recommend πŸ˜‰

    I’m also so grateful summer is here! It will bring so much sunshine and countless beautiful days ahead. I can’t wait to watch July unfold! All the best Jai!!! xoxoxo β™‘β™‘β™‘

    1. Jenni, your comments always make my day πŸ˜€ Yes, I have been writing so much lately but I think I might need to slow down because I’m losing sleep lol. Gotta catch those zzz’s, haha! And yes, my forever WIP, my love child, my sweet oooh I believe in this story so much and I want to share more! In my Writing Updates I do each month I plan on sharing more about it. This WIP has been in my head for over three years and I want to start writing it already but the world building is taking longer than I thought, but it’s all good! All the work will pay off one day I believe ❀ AND YESS WRITE A BOOK SO I CAN BUY IT OFF A SHELF SOMEDAY IN A BOOKSTORE!! I've got your back girl!! And 100% yoga has changed my life, like for real. I should have started it sooner!! I can't imagine not doing it now and waking up early to get it in every day is so WORTH IT. And of course!! I loved your post so I want others to love it and see it too!! Sending good vibes your way for July, and thanks for your beautiful comments as always Jenni! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀
