November 2016 Wrap Up

Reading

I read six books, but I didn’t read all the books I had originally planned to. I realized that one of the books was actually the third book in a series. Whether I need to read the series in order or not, I don’t know, but I prefer to read the books in order anyway.

Either way, my Reading List has been updated with the books I read and reviewed in November.

Writing

I wrote 50,000 words and won NaNoWriMo. That was my biggest accomplishment this month, especially since those words are all going towards my blog for next year. I killed two birds with one stone and I’m feeling good about it!

I didn’t get any other writing done during the month. I had planned on getting a few other things done, but life got in the way. I still had a good writing month, though. So I’m not complaining.

Blogging

Well… I got my posts out on time. That’s about it.

I didn’t even read or comment on anyone else’s blogs. Sorry, guys! Between real life events and NaNo, I was so super busy. December will be better!

Overall

I had a really good NaNo, even though I didn’t get everything done I had originally planned. However, I think I overplanned. It was a productive month nonetheless.

  1. I didn’t do NaNoWriMo, but I took a one-week DIY home-based “retreat” and made progress on my novel, tweaked my memoir manuscript and revised and sent off a chapbook entry. That week alone made my month feel worthwhile.

  2. I didn’t do NaNo, but November was a good month in terms of writing. I set a goal to write three stories by the end of the month. I was one story short of meeting that goal. But I still feel accomplished in the sense I was able to complete two stories within the month.
