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.
I’m going to do my best to start ahead with my reading this month. Books I’ll be reviewing will be:
Warriors: Shattered Sky (A Vision of Shadows 3) by Erin Hunter
Death By Tea (Bookstore Cafe Mystery 2) by Alex Erickson
Warriors: Darkest Night (A Vision of Shadows 4) by Erin Hunter
Mann Cakes by Mysti Parker
Warriors: River of Fire (A Vision of Shadows 5) by Erin Hunter
Books I’ll be reading this month are:
Battle Scars by Jordan Corley
Warriors: The Raging Storm (A Vision of Shadows 6) by Erin Hunter
Death by Pumpkin Spice (Bookstore Cafe Mystery 3) by Alex Erickson
Crookedstar’s Promise by Erin Hunter
As a reminder, my Book Review Policy is only taking requests until the end of the month. If you’d like me to read and review book, you can read the policy and send me an email by March 31.
As usual, I’ll be working on a bunch of different projects. I’m going to continue (or I guess finally start) the 85K90 Writing Challenge, which is still in the writing stage. With that said, I’ll be writing the first draft of one project and rewriting a new draft for another project.
I’ll also be prepping for Camp NaNoWriMo in April by outlining a third project, which will be a novella for Wattpad.
I want to get some blog maintenance done. I’m just about done with March’s blog posts and I was also able to get ahead with certain features that I was able to write well in advance, which means the rest of the year is pretty much 25% done for every month. So, aside from writing some blog posts here and there and keeping ahead on that, I’d like to organize the categories on this blog as well as go through and update some older posts.
March is going to be an interesting month. It’s going to be long. There are no school vacations which means I’ll be babysitting a lot and I’m also getting another nephew any day now. (He’s not due to come until March 14, but I have a gut feeling he’ll come early.) So, lots of work but I know there will be plenty of family time as well. I’m looking forward to it.
