Long time, no post…

Hello there.

Sorry I’ve been away for so long.  Actually I’ve been around reading other blog posts, I just haven’t posted any of my own.  I just didn’t realize how long it had been since I posted last.

So, to update my progress for this years resolution:

Read more…definitely!  I’m on track to complete my Goodreads challenge.  I’ve read 15 books, with only 3 more to go (well actually not that many, since I’m almost done with one book I’m currently reading and halfway through another which I’ve been reading on and off).  I’ve read some really great books this year – the fabulous His Fair Assassin trilogy by Robin LaFevers, and I finally got around to starting The Mortal Instruments series (currently reading City of Fallen Angels).  I’ve also read the first two books in Kate Sparkes’ Bound trilogy (Bound and Torn).  Really good series, can’t wait for the third one.

Now, reading 18 books in a year may be peanuts to some people, who can read a hundred books in a year (or more), but this is more than I usually do.  I’m hoping to make more time going forward so that I can eventually read at least 4 or 5 books a month, otherwise I’ll never make a dent in my ever-growing collection of books on my Kindle and in my Amazon wish list.  There are just so many books I want to read! 🙂

Write more…eh, a little.  I actually just finished a free writing course at the F2K3 website, which is part of the Writers’ Village University.  It was fun.  I think I already had a good grasp on some of the lessons (POV, characterization, using the senses) but what it did was build my confidence in my writing.  I was able to complete the lessons in time and received good feedback on them.  I am now really committed to doing NaNoWriMo this year.  I’m really hoping I’ll complete it this year, rather than writing a few thousand words then quitting like in years past.  Then, maybe I’ll have something definite to post about – I can post about my progress. 🙂

Blog more…yeah, well…sorry about that.  I just need to push myself to post something.  I just have a hard time to post on here if I don’t really have anything to post about.  But, like I said, I should have some NaNo progress to post about next month!  I’ll really try to redouble my efforts to at least post something bi-weekly (much better than every 8 or 9 months, wouldn’t you say!)

Anyway, thanks for reading and see you next time!

  1. Yeah, i wasn’t sure how many Books I could read for the challenge, so I did 12, at least 1 a month, and managed to read it 🙂

    • I used to only spend about an hour at a time on the weekend for reading, so I would only read maybe 4 or 5 books a year.

      So, when I signed up for this I knew I could probably do at least a book a month, but maybe not 2 a month, so I went for 1.5 per month. I probably could have finished 2 a month, but the last few months I kind of slowed down, so now I’m thinking I’ll maybe finish 20 this year, a big step up from 5! 🙂
