Monthly Recap: February 2012


February was an extremely busy month for me. It sort of alternately flew by and dragged, and I got a lot done work-wise, but didn't get as much reading and blogging done as I would have liked. 

One of the big things in February was the Blue Sky Days Blog Tour wrapping up on the 14th. I think it went extremely well, and I'm very pleased with the outcome. I meant to blog about it, but didn't have time. I might do it yet! Better late than never, right? Anyway, I'm thinking about the next tour, maybe something on a smaller scale like a week instead of the four I did for the first tour.

Here's what happened on Ramblings of a Daydreamer in February:

Reviews:
Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey
Dutch Me Deadly by Maddy Hunter
Near Death by MB Mulhall
Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich
The Summer Garden by Sherryl Woods 

Challenges & Events

Other miscellaneous posts:

Coming up on the blog in March:
*March Challenge: Review Copy Clean-Up
*More reviews! I'm also hoping to start some discussion posts that I hope people will join in on and give their thoughts and opinions. 

I'll also be prepping for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Anyone else participating in this? I did it last year, and it was what got me serious about blogging, and it was also what pushed me into turning Ramblings of a Daydreamer into a book blog.


Writing Goals
I was so busy with the blog tour and other Blue Sky Days related things in February that I only actually worked on my current WIP 11 days (*gasp*), and I wrote 28,500, bringing the total word count up to 45,000. I had hoped to be further along, but it just didn't turn out that way! In March I'll be babysitting my youngest nephew four days a week and my writing time will be reduced drastically. I'm kind of worried about that, but I'm still aiming to finish my current WIP with at least another 30,000 words. I also need to to start figuring out beta readers in March for when the book in finished. I'm going to be working even harder than I already am...not sure how that's going to go, but we'll see. I'm exhausted just thinking about it!

How was February for you? What are some of your goals for March?

  1. Hey, Marie! Are You Writing Now sounds super fun. I'm going to look into Blogging from A - Z after I post this, so you might get a second comment from me. What's your next book about? Let me know if there is any way I can help you out. :) I know how much of a climb getting a book done can be! You Can Do It! (Remember: in your case you already *have*. You have *proof*. :D) Good luck! And (very important) have fun!
