August Goals

Has anyone made any goals for August in terms of their writing? 

My goals are to continue not to spread myself as thinly as I have been, while I concentrate on getting through the next few months with family stuff and then there will be time to return to writing and blogging properly in due course.

Until then, I read, knit, crochet and visit my ailing parents.

Voice and Genre

I picked up this novel Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens, when browsing the local bookstore and read the first page to see if it was something that was worth purchasing. I was hooked and decided to buy a copy.

I'm only just getting into it and so far I am enjoying this teen novel with its age and genre appropriate voice; that of a young girl confiding her exploits to the reader, as though she were reporting it in her diary or a letter.

Excellent! 



I just read that she completed the first draft as a Nanowrimo in 2011!! Impressive.
