So I’m going to call this a miscellaneous blog post, because that’s what it is!
I don’t know if this happens to other bloggers, but I basically have little thoughts but I don’t have enough to say to write a blog post. I don’t even know if that makes sense…
Anyway I just wanted to discuss a few topics; how my beta-reading is going, some series I’ve been into recently and some more stuff you’re probably not interested in reading :’D!
Making a start on the manuscripts I received for beta-reading took a little more courage than I anticipated! I think because it’s a new experience, I was just worried that my comments wouldn’t be useful enough to the author! But once I got into it, guys I’m really loving it! This is going to sound cheesy, but it feels… Natural, I think maybe because I studied maths and Earth sciences I have a more critical approach. This is a service I have decided I’m definitely going to start offering on my blog! I’m still trying to figure out pricing, and my approach to actually annotating the manuscripts. If there are any authors out there reading this, I currently have a little questionnare about this service and others and would really appreciate your feedback! As these services are targeted at authors I would appreciate your opinion on a few ideas I have, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill the form below!
During my break, naturally I’ve started binge watching series. I came across a Korean drama called Its Okay, That’s Love whilst scrolling through Instagram. The clip that I watched really got me hooked so I’ve started watching it! It’s basically a romance/comedy/medical drama. Let me just say that Jae-yeol’s mental issues really took me by surprise! I also realised that it’s quite short, only spanning 16 episodes in total. Does anyone know any good Korean dramas they can recommend to me, I’m always looking for new ways to procrastinate!
Here’s the summary:
‘Jang Jae-yeol is an author of bestselling mystery novels and a radio DJ. Playful and a bit arrogant, he also suffers from obsessive-compulsive-disorder. Ji Hae-soo is a psychiatrist on her first year of fellowship. Driven and ambitious with her career yet compassionate towards her patients, Hae-soo has a negative attitude towards love and relationships in her personal life. Once Jae-yeol and Hae-soo meet, there is much contention between them caused by their strong personalities and refusal to give in to each other. But slowly their bickering turns into love and they begin to learn how compatible they are. Jae-yeol and Hae-soo attempt to heal each other’s deep-seated wounds, but their fledgling relationship takes a blow when they learn that Jae-yeol’s mental health issues are more serious than they initially suspected.’ ( taken from Wikipedia, of course).
I think that’s enough rambling for today! What have you been binge watching/reading lately? Let me know in the comments!
