February 2017 Wrap Up

wrap-up-february-2017

Reading

I read a total of 5 books this month. I originally got behind in my reading, but thankfully I had a week off from work and I ended up catching up with it all. I posted my progress of my week-long readathon on my Bookstagram, so feel free to check that out.

Reviews of the books I read haven’t all been posted yet, so check my Reading List periodically as that will be updated with each new review posted.

Writing

My writing plans changed throughout the month. I had originally planned on editing a couple of my novels, but I didn’t do either of that. Instead, I started planning for other things (and started planning for March because I realized it would be easier to just start fresh with a new month).

I’ve been planning a couple new ideas and also started looking into freelance writing, so that’s been taking up a lot of my time.

I did manage to submit to two writing contests, though. So that was something.

Blogging

I finished all my February posts with one week to spare and started working on my March posts. I wanted to get the majority of my March posts done so I can focus more on my novels and such in March.

I was also a guest on Closet Readers. You can check out my post, about my experience with blogging, here: Why I Became A Blogger And Why You Should Become One Too

Plus, there are no school vacations in March. It’s going to be long and I’m not going to have as much time as I have the past two months.

Overall

February was pretty productive. I didn’t get as much writing done and I kind of had to rush through my reading, but I got plenty of blogging done and I also got a lot of planning done. I’ve been thinking ahead and I think I have a good start on a lot of things.
