One month closer to the holiday season…and to finals.
In My Life
School is…school. Yeah, nothing really good or bad happened. I had another Speech and Debate competition, which went well. I got a whole week off for Thanksgiving break, which was great. I definitely ate too much pie.
On a happy note, I got my drivers permit! Technically, I could have gotten it a year and a half ago, but I procrastinated. Anyway, I can now drive (and it’s a little terrifying).
On This Blog
This month was bad for my blog. 😦
I only had 13 posts, and I ended my record of having at least three posts a week (TWICE). In the beginning of the month, I just wasn’t motivated to blog and I needed a little break, but by the end of the month, when I was ready to get back into it, I didn’t have time. Hopefully December will be better!
I took part in two Top Ten Tuesdays:
I also had two discussion posts! I talked about the need for diversity in entertainment and the seven writing styles of YA. I got a ton of positive feedback for the second one–thank you to everyone who liked and commented! It meant a lot. 🙂
In Reading and Reviewing
I only read five books this month (and one was for school). *cries* I should have done a ton of reading over break but instead I did other things and ended up reading NOTHING. Seriously, I didn’t open a book for a week. It was weird.
Anyway, here are the books I read (links to reviews if they exist)
- The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
- The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
- Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
- Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between by Jennifer E. Smith
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (for school)
November was BAD for me for writing. I added 312 words to my WIP. That’s IT. (*sobbing*) And I only published one poem, A Moment of Silence.
Okay, so November was rough for me. But I had a pretty good time overall (in all that time I wasn’t reading/writing/blogging). I have big plans for December.
How was November for you guys? What are your plans for December?
