January 2018 Wrap Up

January 2018 Wrap up | Creative Writing | Blogging | RachelPoli.com


According to Goodreads, I read four books this month. I actually read five, one book isn’t on Goodreads. I ended up reading more than I thought I would even though most of the books weren’t what I originally planned.


Writing was tricky this month. Every time I had a moment to get something done, something came up in real life that I had to deal with. I did get a few things done, I worked a little bit on each project. It just wasn’t as much as I hoped it would be.


I kept up pretty well with my January posts right up until the end when I got sick. Now I’m behind again so I’m hoping to catch up with February soon.


January was a whirlwind. It went by too fast and it’s kind of a blur to me. I feel like I wasn’t able to give my work as much attention as I usually do. I’m still playing around with a schedule for myself. When I get into a good groove something has to change, so we’ll see what happens.

  1. Things like how you got sick and it gave you problems with posts for the end of the month are why I usually schedule most of my posts in advance. Some of them I really can’t, but where possible I do, that way I’m covered if I’m out of action for a few days.

    January went by in a bit of a blur for me too, but I still managed to get most of what I planned achieved, so I’m calling it a good month. I had the same problem as you with writing: every time I sat down to write something happened to cut my writing session short. But that seems to happen most of the time these days, and I was able to get the “publisher tasks” I planned to work on dealt with, so I’m not as bothered as I have been about that in previous months, since I did well to fit in what I did, especially since I lost most of the first half of the month to being away, and then trying to catch up with eMails and blog post reading from being away. So, as I said, I’m calling it a good month.

    • I always schedule my posts in advance as well. Halfway through January, real-life things happened and I ended up getting behind. But oh well, it happens.

      Yeah, it seems like you had a good month. Even if you don’t get done what you originally plan, you’re still accomplishing something. 🙂
