I got a little research done this week for the adventure novel. (More on that on Thursday. Exciting!)

But that was it.

I am struggling right now to overcome the feelings of failure and inadequacy that stem from my lack of productivity the last couple of weeks. I’m in this cycle where I don’t work on writing so I feel guilty and then the guilt weighs on me until I go watch TV or Netflix to drown out the guilt.

Yeah. It makes no sense. But it is what it is.

Also, I’m in need of a couple of beta readers. Preferably ones who are at least semi-interested in YA, fantasy, fairy tales, or any combination of the three. I only need two readers at the moment as more voices than that on a single draft makes me sort of shut down when it comes to incorporating the feedback into the next draft. Let me know in the comments if you’re willing.

Also, none of the winners in my giveaway have yet to acknowledge they’ve seen that they are winners. I’ll re-draw at the end of the week (Friday morning) for whatever prizes have not been acknowledged. You can acknowledge via e-mail at novicewriteranonymous (at) gmail (dot) com or in the comments on either the announcement post (just before this one on the blog) or on this post.

How are your WiPs going?
