November 2017 Wrap Up

November 2017 Wrap Up


I read more than I had planned, so that was nice. Be sure to check out my Reading List and catch up with my book reviews.


I wrote over 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo on my novella, The Scribe. Yes, I changed the title… again. This is the last time, I swear. The first draft of the story is completed. I have no more writing to do. All that’s left now is the editing. I’m excited to dive into that as soon as possible!


I did a lot more “planning” than actually “doing” this month. My main focus was NaNo, so blogging and everything else kind of took a back seat. Still, I feel like I have my head on straight. I know what I want to accomplish within the next couple of months. I got a head start on a few of those things, such as updated graphics for this blog.

I also recently published a guest post over on Hanna’s Voice about writing and blogging. Please go check it out!


November was a good month. I feel as though it went by too fast, but I got a lot done and I feel good.

  1. Congrats on your Nanowrimo win! I know my own Nano novel will need lots of revision before it’s ready. I usually have to let it cool off during December and then start editing in January.

    1. Thanks! Mine is going to need a lot of editing as well. I like waiting a month as well, but I’ve given it about two weeks since I was able to finish early. So I’m going to hop into the editing in December.
      Good luck with your edits and future writing!
