Recaps, look-backs, wrap ups, whatever you want to call them, I like them. So even though I’ve only just launched my blog, and have a total of *four* published posts (five, if you count this one) I’m writing one.
I’m sit at my little corner desk slurping down a chocolate latte. *ahhhh* It’s about the only way I enjoy coffee. That and mocha’s, I discovered. Have you ever had a peanut butter mocha? They’re quite amazing, and taste nothing like peanut butter. (however, I do
live on adore enjoy peanut butter, so that wouldn’t be a bad thing.
I’m rambling now. Grab your preferred morning beverage of choice and let’s look back at everything that happened round these parts in May!
(Just so you know, I finished my late. Now its gone.)
Books Read: 1
This month was a rather sad month for reading. That is, it’s sad if you’re looking at the numbers. I mean, one whole book? Some reader I am. And I finished it on May 3rd, which means that most of it got read in April. I’m such a cheater.
Gone are the days where I devour ten plus Warrior cat books in a single month. 😉
But I’ve been taking my dear sweet time, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Since I finished the Brick in December, I’ve been strolling along and thoroughly enjoying The Lord of the Rings. It’s almost over now, I’ve got sixty pages left of The Return of the King. So maybe My book count will be two by May 31st. 😉 *update, I finished the book, minus the appendixes.*
My TBR pile isn’t happy with my choices of reading abnormally long books (ummm it took me two years to read Les Mis, but it was so worth it. I sobbed) and then taking an extremely long time to read them. But too bad for it.
Writing That Got Wrote:
It’s been a methodical pace this month, and not a lot got accomplished. I re-caped my last several months editing my WIP, The Sparrow Who Couldn’t Sing, and the only thing that happened since then was another read-through. Lots of small tweaks, mostly with passive voice, and scouring for undiscovered plot holes.
In the next few weeks, I’m hoping to send it away to a beta reader or two, and then work on Characters.
Favorite Blog Posts Read:
I didn’t really keep track this month. But next month I hope to have a more neater collection of valuable posts for y’all.
Blog Posts That Got Published:
My blog was started! Four posts were published by me! Passive voice is annoying!
(did you catch my passive voice? 😉 )
Life That Happened:
I finished school around May 2nd, at least, I finished up co-op classes. Government and Econ? check. Psychology? Check. *wipes sweat off brow*
For those of you that don’t already know, I’m homeschooled. (or an inside joke, I’m home-teached) So I finished up pretty early because I pace differently.
But now I’m doing Geometry all summer. So far, it’s not too bad.This is where pacing differently bites you in the tush, because I went super duper slow in math a few years ago. *sigh* one must catch up.
ALSO if you want to make really comfy pants with only a skirt, check out this pin. I’m addicted.
I’ve talked about myself for much to long now, tell me about you! What did you read? Did you write anything? Or did something huge happen in your life that sucked up all your time?
I’m all ears. 🙂
