A Large Year End Post

I don’t know what happened this year, but I was busy. So skip what you like, but kindly pay attention to the first section.

Social Media

I started an Instagram. It’s smallish. I mainly post about Fashion, Sewing, and Life.

I started a Bookstagram. It’s a bit bigger.

I started a Youtube Channel. It will be primarily about books. I also plan on doing fact sections. My goal with it is to have five thousand followers by the end of the year. I know this is crazy as most people don’t care about the books I love at all. YAY!

I also have a Ko-fi account. This month I haven’t done much on it, but I plan on doing more in 2020.

I have a Reedsy account. I haven’t done much with it, but I could…

I use Pinterest off and on. Yeah, skip it.

Writing

I participated and won both Camp Nano’s and Nanowrimo.

I wrote some this year. I finished my novella/middle-grade novel Aleah Ash. Now it just needs a few readers, a bit more editing, and then I may see about publishing it.

I worked on plotting my steampunk trilogy. Literally.

I got a good way into the rough draft of Containsia book one. I plan on finishing it soon. My hope is to start work on book two next Nanowrimo.

I also have written a few recipes for my cookbook, but write now I’m struggling with how serious it should be. (Strange Humor or Mostly Sensible) I hope to get further along with it.

Blog

Reading

Yes that is one hundred and seventy seven books. This year I plan on reading 500 books at least.

Camp NaNoWriMo!!! April 2019 Halfway

Ok so it’s closer to two thirds…… But

Camp NaNoWriMo

I decided to spend this Camp Nano finishing Aleah Ash and plotting another story.

I ended Aleah Ash the way M says I always end my stories,

Well, That was fun.

I don’t know what I will do with it now. Maybe edit it and see if I can find it some beta readers.

And the plotting has gotten half a dozen chapters planned out, then I realized I’m planning a travel story loosely based on the real world.

Since then I’ve been using google maps to figure out travel paths. Did you know that Concrete is next to Grassmere? And there is a town called Huzzah.

I fell behind on the first couple of days, but by the middle of the month I was back on track. Then this past Wednesday I got a reading headache. And now I’m super behind.

Time To Hurry

This past week I went to visit my oldest brother and his family. Us girls spent most of our time making bridesmaid dresses. S and I did spend part of one morning posing by a waterfall.

I don’t know what I will wear to the wedding. I could borrow something. I could re-wear something. I could make something.

I also need to finish and photograph a shirt for my etsy shop. I have plans for another shirt. It would be fun to get a few 18th century pockets up on etsy.

I am supposed to be taking part of Camp NaNoWriMo.

Of course I also want to read books. Keep my blog going strong. Grow a little on Instagram. Help with the garden. Work on Hebrew, French, Irish, Korean, and Dutch.

Maybe I can finish all that I want to by the end of the month, but maybe it will take to just before the wedding, but I hope I can really get a lot done.
