I woke up this morning to snow. I believe the dread of the oncoming winter produced my heart sink proper by way of my toes and into the floor. *sniff* Every single year I get excited more than fall, but neglect the season of freezing temperatures that comes subsequent. 😛
Beside snow, this month was a superior 1. Here’s what went down.
I am HALFWAY Carried out WITH College! My pace has slowed with operate and life piling on, but I am creating progress. I just have to survive the winter. (which I will do by burying myself in fuzzy blankets 97% of the time) I CAN DO THIS. YOU CAN DO THIS.
Appear. AT. THIS. FENCE. It is proper outdoors my neighborhood so each and every time I drive dwelling from someplace I get to gaze upon its amazingness. The Calvin and Hobbes comics are close to my heart and hold a unique nostalgia with them... so this fence generally brightens my day. <3
MY Thoughts IS BLANKING ON Much more HIGHLIGHTS. Typically I create them down as I go all through the month… but I was a slacker and completely forgot. #oops
(speaking of blogging… I’ve noticed that the GFC widget on blogspot blogs are providing some sort of error. Please inform me if you figure out how to repair it. I will give you pizza. Practically. )
Invictus [3/5] – so the starting began off SUPER amazing, but as it went on I lost interest and wasn’t emotionally involved with the characters. (and my poor thoughts was pretty confused about the time travel stuff SAMxD)
Wildwood [2/5] – this book had so a great deal prospective! The aesthetic and illustrations have been beautiful… but it was so loooong and boooring.
Knife [4/5] – absolutely not my standard sort of story… but I loved it since of the nostalgia! When I was small I study fairy stories all the time, so I adored the trip back to the previous. <3
When Dimple Met Rishi [2/5] – cute at instances, but did not reside up to the hype. It is difficult for me to study a romance story when I do not like either of the most important characters pretty a great deal. :/
Earlier this month I went to a book clearance sale and purchased seven barely-made use of hardcovers for seven dollars. Um, yes please. The only undesirable issue is that I now have to commence stacking books on my floor considering that my shelves are entirely complete. 😛
I Completed PLOTTING MY NANO NOVEL! I was completed a week just before NaNoWriMo, which is crazy since I am under no circumstances that organized. But, hey, there is generally a very first for anything! 😛
I debated on regardless of whether or not to operate on a distinctive project in the course of my cost-free week… but as an alternative I decided to devote my further time reading. Yes, I could’ve pushed myself, but I also know that it would’ve backfired as soon as NaNo began. I need to have to stalk up on my power when I have the likelihood. Beside — reading is portion of becoming a writer! And I do not do practically adequate of it. *sniff*
My plotting motto for this year: ASK ALL THE Inquiries. Come across ALL THE ANSWERS. And that is generally what I did till I figured out my novel’s plot. xD I am far more ready than I’ve ever been. For instance:
time spent prepping for NaNo 2016: thirteen hours.
time spent prepping for NaNo 2017: thirty-seven hours.
Also, appear! I ordered NaNoWriMo merch for the very first time! I am hoping to go to a handful of create-ins in November, so I will be capable to effectively show off my obsession with NaNo. xD
Issues TO COME
And, if I recall, I will be undertaking a every day NaNo vlog that I will place with each other and post at the finish of the month. I am so excited for the craziness to commence! *hands out cookies for you all to delight in*
