The  Daily Walk is a little peek into my daily life, something different to get a glimpse in to the life of the person behind the blog.

I’d like to invite anybody who takes photos to put your link in the comment of my Daily Walk, that way we can visit other blogs and have a glimpse into their life, too!

What I’m Reading Now

 I’ve picked up a new ARC by Hal Archer.  His newest book in the Jake Mudd series to be released June 27th called Forced Vengeance.

Here’s the Goodreads blurb:

SOMETIMES A GOOD PLAN GETS MUDDIED.

Jake’s days of operating under the radar are over. Old enemies are now intent on making his living as much a struggle for survival as for credits.

To secure a new black market license, he travels the backwaters of the galaxy to a sprawling cesspool in space, a city of dead ends and lost hopes.

Staying alive becomes a full-time job, and Jake is blindsided when he’s framed for murders he didn’t commit.

Proving his innocence and surviving become one and the same as he is forced into trial by combat against some of the worst criminals the galaxy has to offer.

But he’s facing more than the fight for his life, when he learns his enemies are targeting Sarah. Time is running out for Jake to save himself, clear his name, and reunite with his beloved ship before she’s taken for good.

He didn’t want to play dirty, but they left him no choice.

Off the Blog

Thank you to all the new followers here on my blog!  Welcome and I hope you enjoy my posts. I follow back and look forward to your posts as well!

My youngest son received Gold honours at his awards ceremony this week!  I’m so proud of him!

Writing

I’ve signed up for Camp Nano!  I’ve done Nanowrimo in November for the past three years but this is the first time committing to writing in July.

Camp NaNoWriMo is a virtual writer’s retreat, designed for maximum flexibility and creativity. We have Camp sessions in both April and July, and we welcome word-count goals between 30 and 1,000,000. In addition, writers can tackle any project they’d like, including new novel drafts, revision, poetry, scripts, and short stories.

So, my plan is to revise a novel that I’ve finished the first draft.  I’m committing to 30 hours.  Thats an hour a day, should be doable!  Hopefully I will get a lot more than that accomplished!

Do you enjoy writing?  Will you be participating in Camp Nano this July?  It’s not too late to sign up!

Thanks for dropping by 🙂

  1. Oo I love NaNo! I’ve done it for six years or so but I’ve struggled to keep that writing momentum once November ends. Maybe I should try Camp NaNo? I would love to revise/rewrite my last NaNo novel…

  2. Hey, tags and awards are totally fun because they let more people connect with their blog, for example, even if you blog about a type of books a person doesn’t really read, they will have something to say and relate to on a tag post! So that’s why I love tags.
    Anyway, have a great reading week 🙂

  3. Congrats on the tags/awards! And I like the idea of your Walking posts- seems like a great way to get to know other bloggers, and share some photography too.

  4. Congrats on winning those awards. That’s so cool! Good luck with Camp NaNo. I’m not a writer at all, but I love following how everyone is doing and enjoying themselves. 😉
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  5. I love that we have so many interests in common [cooking, reading writing.) I’m doing NaNo Camp too! 🙂 Congrats to your son for his Gold honours and to you for your two Blogger awards! That’s so awesome! Happy Reading 🙂

  6. Congratulations to your son for getting honors! That’s awesome! I’ve thought about doing NaNo before because I have a good idea in my head of a book I’d like to write but I literally have no idea how to write a book. I start out all excited and then I feel like I fall flat on my face and give up. I think my biggest struggle is conversations. I don’t know how to make them sound organic. My dream is to conquer that fear and write something but it’s a tall task and I might not be fit for it haha.

    1. I don’t consider myself to be a great writer, but I see such an improvement in my writing since I started! Nano is a great exercise. It doesn’t have to be good. It’s a first draft. Just get the words down, and fix them later.

      I hope you give it a shot sometime! 🙂

  7. Oh! You are doing the same as me for Camp Nanowrimo. I committed to 30 hours of rewrites on a novel I’m working on. So glad to see another doing the same. 😀

    And your reads look great! Have a great week!

  8. So much good stuff here! I love to write but my two year old is pretty time consuming right now. I hope that in a year or two I can carve out a little more time to write. 🙂 Your Daily Photo Walk Project is such a fun idea! Love it!

    Enjoy and have a great week!

  9. Congratulations on the tags and awards! The Soul Ripping Romance tag looks like fun and I have to agree with you on Jamie/Claire and Daenarys/Khal Drogo (I stopped reading the book when he died, it took me a couple days to get over it lol).

  10. Congratulations to your son and enjoy nanowrimo. I hope you can share your book one day. Looking forward to it. Anyway, congrats on the awards. This community is awesome. Happy reading and have a wonderful week.

    1. I’m really not sure! I know there’s cabins, which is basically a virtual writing group. I’m in with my group of local writers. If you want to friend my there my name is Jo Crow 🙂

  11. I do like tags now and then, although I don’t often make time for them. I have one scheduled for later this year. That’s great you posted some pictures from your walks! Your current read looks good, i hope you’re enjoying it! And good luck with nano!

  12. I’m sorry – I’m a couple of weeks later here but you did comment on my blog so I wanted to return the comment love, even though it’s so late!

    Congrats on all the blog awards! And good luck with Camp Nano! I hope it’s going well!

I love hearing from you! Leave a comment :)
