March 2019 [Wrap Up]

Wrap Up March 2019 | Creative Writing | Blogging | Reading |


This was kind of a slow reading month for me. I read what I wanted to and what I had planned to, but I didn’t read a little bit each day. Most of the books I read within a day or two right before the end of the week. Still, I enjoyed most of what I read and haven’t gotten behind in my reading goal.


Slow and steady wins the race, right? I’ve been writing, I’ve been prepping and outlining. I planned out my writing for April and am in good shape for Sunday Morning and the other projects I’ll be working on. Aside from making progress on Sunday Morning, I outlined my next Wattpad novella and worked out some timeline stuff for my mystery series. Overall, it was a decent writing month. Not in terms of words but I still made progress.


Blogging is still going strong. I’ve been slowly writing blog posts for 2019. Most of my features (with the exception of the wrap-ups and contests and such) I’m able to write in bulk. So, that’s what I’ve been doing. This will save me so much time as the months go by and I only have to worry about writing the day to day content, which I usually write at the beginning of the month. Once I’m done with all of this, I’ll be able to spend more time gabbing on social media as well as writing!


March was busy. Aside from work, I picked up some extra babysitting jobs and got a new nephew! It was a good month and I’m looking forward to April.

  1. Glad your March went so well.

    I’m behind on both my reading and DVD watching goals for the year. On the other hand, I got caught up on things online I was behind on, and got the posts I can do ahead of time for April done. Also, one of my narrators ended up needing me to dissolve the contracts, so I had to sort that, as well as find a replacement, which I finished organizing literally a couple of days ago. Plus, I found time to help hubby with a write-up for something for one of his roleplaying games, as well as work on my own writing a little, which weren’t in the March plans, but I was glad I got to do. I’m pleased with everything I managed to achieve in March, especially when you consider that I’m still recovering from surgery, and had only really planned to try and get caught up on eMails and posts I got behind on while out of action in February.

  2. Sometimes while I read your post I got the feeling your successes didn’t quite feel like grand success to you. Well, if you need an outside helper to make you feel a little better, I think it looks like a great month! And congrats on the new jobs/nephew!

    • Oh, I don’t mean for it to come off that way, lol. I think any progress is progress. I mean, my “grand success” will be when I finally publish something, but I’m happy with everything I do and I’m proud of all I’ve accomplished. 🙂 I do appreciate the kind words and confidence boost though! And thank you, my nephew (new and his brother) are such blessings!

  3. I certainly wish I could’ve done more writing and reading. But at the end of this week I’m going to a writer’s conference where I hope to make some new connections and sell/sign some copies of my novel, so I think March will end on a good note.
