Wrap Up: June 2018

2018 June Wrap Up | Blogging | Reading | Creative Writing | Goals | RachelPoli.com


I got slightly ahead with my reading, so I was proud of myself for that. I feel like I’ve been in a little bit of a slump for a while. My Reading List has been updated as is my Goodreads, so feel free to check those out to keep up with what I’m currently reading and reviewing.


I got behind on my writing again. I’m so happy Camp NaNo is right around the corner because I definitely need that extra push to get going.

I was supposed to write Brave and continue editing/rewriting George Florence & The Perfect Alibi. I started off strong at the beginning of the month, but the past couple of weeks have been crazy in real life and my writing just kind of tapered off.


My posts have been plentiful and ahead of schedule, though there’s a lot of maintenance work I should have done and just didn’t. So there’s that.


June had a lot of “in real life” stuff going on, but I got the bare minimum done of what I needed to do work-wise. June had a lot of family and friend days, which is perfectly fine with me. Though the month definitely went too fast.

  1. I’m glad you had a great reading month, even if “real life” stuff stopped you being as successful as you’d hoped to be in other areas.

    My June wasn’t too bad. Having done most of my blog posts for June, and several for July, back in May (when I thought they might have me in for surgery quickly) I was able to get a bit of writing time in, and start working on catching up with my reading a bit. I’m still dealing with medical issues – and will be until my surgery date finally rolls around – but at least there’s progress with moving towards a resolution with those. We’ve also started packing boxes, since we’re planning to move as soon as it can be arranged after I’ve had – and at least mostly recovered from – my surgery, and we want to slowly pack up those things we can pack ahead of time so we have less to deal with last minut.

  2. You really DID have a productive month, and you are right, June just flew by. I did a lot of socializing, lunches with former students and “girlfriends” and coffee here at the house with long, chatty visits. I also did my summer doctor visits (have to check in every six months, so I do it at Christmas vacations and summers when any follow up tests, etc. do not interfere with my teaching schedule. In the 29 years I have taught at the university where I am now, I have only had to cancel three classes…pretty good record for an ole’ lady.

    • That sounds like a great month! It’s always great to catch up with people. And wow, that’s impressive! Good for you. 🙂
