April 2019 [Wrap Up]

Wrap Up April 2019 | Creative Writing | Reading | Blogging | RachelPoli.com

Reading

I read a good amount during the month. I went into a bit of a slump toward the end and even skipped a book review. I’m not too worried though. I have the rest of the year to reach my 52-book goal. Slow and steady.

Writing

The writing was plentiful between the 85K90 challenge and Camp NaNoWriMo. I also self-published Sunday Morning: A Collection of 52 Flash Fiction (finally!) so please do go check that out if you haven’t already.

Blogging

I got behind in blogging. Like, way behind. So much happened this month and there weren’t enough hours in the day. I’m getting a good chunk of May done though. I’ll catch up soon enough.

Overall

April was crazy. I self-published my first book, participated in Camp NaNoWriMo, finished the writing part of the 85K90 Writing Challenge, so much happened at my church, it was Easter, there were a couple of birthdays, and, toward the end, my grandfather went into the hospital. It’s been a lot, obviously. I’m drained mentally and physically, despite most of the happenings in April were good.

I even skipped a couple of days of blogging, that’s how drained I was. My OCD will drive me nuts later, but whatever – I don’t want to post for the sake of posting and I needed a break.

I’m looking forward to May, though. Things should calm down a bit and hopefully, all will be well with my grandfather.

Goals [April 2019]

Goals April 2019 | Creative Writing | Reading | Blogging | RachelPoli.com

Reading

I plan on reading four books this month:

1. Battle Scars by Jordan Corley
2. Warriors: The Raging Storm (A Vision of Shadows 6) by Erin Hunter
3. Crookedstar’s Promise by Erin Hunter
4. Death By Pumpkin Spice (Bookstore Cafe Mystery 3) by Alex Erickson

If I can read an extra book or two in addition to those, that’d be great.

Writing

It’s Camp NaNoWriMo time! I’ll be working on two different projects aiming for 50,000 words total. I’m also hoping to get a few other things written as well just for fun.

Also, Sunday Morning is finally being released this month! I know, I’ve been promising it for a while, but it’s finally here. There will be more details on that soon.

Blogging

Once I finish my April posts, which I’m almost done with, I’ll be working on admin stuff all the while trying to get a headstart on May – Mystery Month!

Overall

April is going to be a busy month, but I’m ready!
