August 2016 Wrap Up

Reading

I read six out of the nine books I had planned on reading this month. With that being said, my Reading List is now updated with August’s books.

Writing

Well. I started off strong editing George Florence and then got stuck. Apparently I said I was also going to edit The Lost Girl all month. I forgot about that, but I just started finishing that up a few days ago. So there’s that.

Blogging

By the end of the month, I got kind of behind on my posts. But I’ll catch up, that’s no problem. I started planning ideas for next year rather than focus on the rest of August and upcoming September. Oh, well.

Overall

It was a fairly productive month. I think I should have gotten more done than what I actually accomplished. But I did have work the first week of August, I went away for a weekend with my family, and I hung out with my cousins and friends here and there. So I think I had a good month overall.
