October Wrap-Up

October Wrap Up


I did not read nearly as much as I thought I would. I did read three out of the five books I meant to read. I read a different book since the author contacted me and one book I didn’t get to read because I was sick the entire first week of the month.

So I’m hoping next month I’ll get to those books because I am looking forward to reading them. There just aren’t enough hours in the day.

To see what I’ve read this month, feel free to check out my Reading List. It’s updated except for this Saturday’s review because… well, it’s not Saturday yet and has not been posted.


I editedΒ George Florence for my writer’s group and that went well. Now I need to take another look at it and edit the next part.

I did not write one Short Story Sunday a day. I missed a whole week because I was sick so I decided to do it in December instead.

I started an outline for next month’s NaNoWriMo project, but then came up with a different idea. I outlined the first chapter of that one and haven’t touched it since. I’m itching to write it and I know if I “outline” I’ll just tell the story instead of outlining it.


Due to work, babysitting, and other life events, I haven’t been keeping up well with writing certain blog posts in advance. This takes writing time away and with NaNo next month, I don’t want to be spending a huge chunk of my morning trying to write the blog post of that day.

I changed my routine around and I’ll now be focused on working on my blog two days a week instead of one. I’m not sure how I’ll fit that in with NaNo, but I’m sure it’ll work just fine the other months.

I’ve also been brainstorming new ideas and features for my blog starting in 2016. I hope you guys look forward to that.


I didn’t hit every goal, but October was a good month.

While I didn’t get much done in the writing department, I’m just going to use the excuse that I need to relax my fingers until NaNo starts.

How was your October?

  1. Erm… Goals? Did I make goals? I don’t think I really did. If I did, I failed them… Well, all except the reading one that is. πŸ˜‰ Sounds like you had a pretty fantastic month besides the week of being sick. πŸ™

  2. This is pretty cool. I like that you keep yourself accountable by organizing your monthly goals publicly. I may have to adopt this method πŸ™‚

    • It definitely helps. I used to do it and never followed through, but once I started blogging about it, it motivated me to stick to a plan. Good luck. πŸ™‚
