Wrap Up: May 2018

2018 May Wrap Up | Blogging | Reading | Creative Writing | Mystery Month | RachelPoli.com

Reading

I read 4 mystery books this month in honor of Mystery Month. You can check out my Reading List to see which books I read and reviewed. I also got a bit ahead in reading books for June.

Writing

Honestly, I didn’t get as much writing done this month as I had planned to. While I was outlining Brave for Wattpad back in April, I was super excited to write it. Then when it came time to actually write it, I didn’t have much motivation. I’m going to see what I can do with it though and hope I can still publish it when I said I would.

I’m still retyping/rewriting the next draft of George Florence. I thought it’d be fairly quick, but I’ve been editing my edits as I go along as well as adding in more description and such. Plus, I changed the way the victim dies, so… that kind of changed pretty much the whole story. Again.

Progress is progress though, I won’t complain.

Blogging

I’ve gotten all of June planned and most of the blog posts written. I’m hoping to finish that up soon so I can start looking ahead into July.

Overall

May went by too quick. It wasn’t until May 15 that I realized I only had half the month left to finish my stuff and I had barely started any of my writing at that point. It wasn’t a bad month though, I’ll take it. Like I said, I’m still making progress.

  1. Damn that editing…it always seems to take longer than you expect! I had a similar experience this month, but you’re right that progress is progress and it’s always better to take that little extra time and get the outcome you want. Keep at it 🙂

  2. May certainly went by fast, didn’t it?

    I’m glad you seem to have had a mostly good month, even if you didn’t make as much writing progress as you’d hoped to.

    My May involved more dealings with doctors, issues with a neighbour we’ve been having problems with getting worse, not enough reading time for my liking, and what little writing time I might have had used to get ahead on blog posts. So, not one of my better months.

Let me know what you think!
