July 2018 Wrap Up

July 2018 Wrap Up | creative writing | blogging | reading | RachelPoli.com


Since it’s the summer I’ve been reviewing books twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays. As always, you can check out my Reading List to see which books I’ve read and reviewed this month. You can also check out my Goodreads to keep up with what I’m currently reading… if I remember to update it.


My writing projects have been steadily going this month. With the help of Camp NaNoWriMo I’ve gotten in plenty hours of editing.

I’ve edited George Florence & The Perfect Alibi which brought me back to square one for the novel. I have to do yet another rewrite. So we’ll see how that goes.

I’ve also been editing my project for Patreon. This is exclusive for my patrons for now. My patrons get exclusive looks into my process and sneak peeks of the project. When it’s out in the world, patrons will get special goodies as a thank you for their support. If you would like to support me and my writing and see what this project is all about early, please check out my Patreon here.


My blog posts have kind of taken a back seat since I’ve been working on a lot of maintenance and admin stuff for the blog. However, since I was on vacation last week, I ended up getting a little ahead in my posts again in preparation for being away. So, I’m slowly catching up with that.


July was a crazy month. More so because of real life. It was overwhelming at times but I powered through. Now onto August!

  1. Well done on what you managed to get done. Sorry you’re back with rewrites on your book though. Sounds like you’re glad to have July over with?

    July was a pretty good month for me, though exhausting. The only thing I didn’t manage to achieve was to pack more boxes, because it was WAY too hot! I managed to catch up on my reading goal by a few books (I’m still a bit behind, but not by as many books as I was at the start of the month) and only need one more letter for my A-Z reading challenge. As for writing: the story I planned to edit and get ready to publish is all set to go, and scheduled for release on August 3rd, I wrote a couple more poems, and I even made a bit of progress with my adventure story (even if it was mainly doing some of the research I needed to do, and having a telephone brainstorming session with the children of a family friend to name the ship). I was even feeling well enough to go on several outings, which involved a lot of trips to the beach (which we live right beside) and even attending a couple of the local events for a short time.

    • Thanks. I guess that’s what happens when you start a murder mystery story at a young age, lol.

      It sounds like you had a great month! I’m glad you were able to get all that done – writing, reading, and socializing. 🙂
