September Wrap-Up

September Wrap Up

Here is an update on my September Goals.


I read different books than what I said I was going to read, but I still managed to read four books this month as planned.

To look at the books I read and reviewed, check out my Reading List. It’s been updated with September’s books.


I’m editing George Florence at a slow pace to figure some plot holes out and also let my writer’s group look at the first few parts. The problem is, this won’t start until October. I’m going to concert the night of my writer’s group meet, so… Oh, well.

I sent in a short story to Writer’s Digest’s Popular Fiction contest. The early bird deadline was September 15, but you can still submit. The actual deadline is October 15. The entry fee is just five-dollars more.

I also started outlining a new novel (novella, maybe?) called To The Fullest. It’s a working title and I plan on posting that story on Wattpad when it’s ready. At this time I don’t know when the story will be good enough to post on Wattpad, but I’ll let you guys know when I have a ballpark time. I’m hoping by January at the latest.


Not too much new on the blog, as usual. However… I did hit a milestone!

My goal for each month is to try to hit 1,000 views. I got a little over 1,000 views back in June, which was a huge accomplishment for me.

I didn’t think I would hit that goal come September because of work, babysitting, Sunday school, etc. I was way busier this month than I was over the summer.

Well, I hit way past my goal. My blog has hit over 1,200 views this month and that’s not including today and tomorrow.

So, thank you so much everyone! I only have you guys to thank for this. I’m glad so many people keep coming back for more.

I know the views and visitors are different, but the amount of visitors I had this month skyrocketed as well. I have no idea why, but I just have to hope I keep doing what I’m doing!


September was a great month! It was super busy, but I’m glad to be back in a routine not just with my writing, but with work and everything else as well.

I only hope October is just as great!
