August Wrap-Up

August Wrap Up

Here’s an update on my August Goals.


I read three out of the five books I planned on reading. I went on vacation and found a trilogy and ended up reading those.

So I actually read more than planned; they just weren’t the exact books I had in mind. My Reading List has been updated. You can check that out to look at the reviews I’ve done this month.


I went on two vacations this month.

Now that the excuses are out of the way…

I didn’t finish rewriting George Florence yet. I’m almost there though! I think I only have another 40-50k words left? It seems like a lot, but… Well, it is a lot.

Also, I didn’t query my children’s book to anymore agents. I’ll query it out some more in September. I heard back from a few, though. All the answers were no, but at least I got responses.


As far as I’m concerned, blogging has been going well.

As long as you guys don’t have any complaints about my blog, I think we’re all good!


August was productive and certainly went by way too fast.

I start back to work and babysitting and such in a week. Let’s see how productive September will be.

  1. Sounds like you had a good month! Awesome! I looked at your reading list and almost freaked out when I saw your 2014 list because I thought it was January’s at first. That’s what I get for reading too fast. *facepalm*

      1. I wasn’t keeping track of what I read in 2014, so my list would look even worse. I believe I read more books last year than this year, but the only ones I’d be able to put on a list would be the ones that appeared on my blog, which doesn’t count for a fourth of what I read. 😦

      2. I know what you mean. I only kept track because I did the Goodreads reading challenge, but I didn’t start doing book reviews until this year. 2015 makes my 2014 reading list look pathetic.

Let me know what you think!
