December 2018 Wrap Up

2018 December Wrap Up | Reading | Creative writing | Blogging |


December was a pretty good month for reading. Once Christmas was over, I was able to get some reading done that I wanted to do. I got through some extra books for the year and I also got back into an old series which basically had me speed reading and got me out of my reading slump.


Writing didn’t happen this month. I mean, I tried to get some things done. I planned and I wrote some things for my Patrons but for the most part, I didn’t have time to write and it always took the backseat to something else. I’ll be getting more into my writing once the new year comes, though. I have a plan!


A lot of blogging happened this month. I’ve done a lot for my blog and social media in preparation for 2019. New things are coming and some old things are changing. It’s been a lot of reworking and I still have more to do. I’m pacing myself though and just taking it day by day. The blog will slowly come together and things are looking good! At least, I think they are anyway. We’ll see how it all comes together.


December was a crazy month. On and offline, there was so much to do and not enough time. However, I got done what I needed to do by the time it needed to be done. Christmas was enjoyable and the month was good overall.

  1. Sounds like a pretty good month end to the year. 🙂

    December was a crazy month for me too, but I’m pleased with how it went. I got caught up on my reading goal, thanks to some short holiday reads. In fact, I might actually read a little more than planned by the end of the year. I didn’t get any writing time, but I got a load of the non-writerly author stuff done, so I don’t mind too much, because I’m glad to be able to say those tasks are checked off my list. All the blog posts I can schedule ahead of time for January are done, other than two that will go up when I’m going to be in hospital, which I’m waiting for something from someone before I can sort those properly. I also got a head start on scheduling my Monday posts (the only ones I’ll be able to schedule loads ahead of time) and have them scheduled through to the middle of April. Plus, I now have my surgery date, and have had my pre-op assessment… Finally! OMG! I just realized… I’ll be going in for surgery this time in four weeks.

    • Wow! Good for you. And I’m glad you’re finally getting the surgery. I wish you all the best with it.
