Monthly Wrap-up badge

July was a great month for me. I completed Camp NaNoWriMo, had lots of outdoor fun with my family, went on holiday to Hunstanton and turned 29.


Total blog posts: 14. You can read all my July posts here.

Blogfests/events: Insecure Writers Support Group, July Comment Challenge, We are the World Blogfest, Camp NaNoWriMo.

Book promos: None this month.

Books completed: 1. Whoops! In my defence, I was reading several books at once and am close to finishing most of them. But this one was the only one I actually finished.

Book cover for The Loneliest Girl in the Universe.

Books reviewed: 0. Oh dear, I am so behind!

Creative Hobbies

I’m so pleased that I got back on track with my writing last month. I’ve been getting up early to write most days and it’s paying off. I managed to achieve my goal word count for Camp NaNoWriMo-you can read more about that here. If I stay on track, I should finish the first draft of my WiP by the end of October. I might then start book 2 for NaNoWriMo in November, then edit book 1 early next year.

I haven’t done any artwork this month but I got some cool watercolour pens for my birthday so I’m looking forward to experimenting with those.

TV & Film

Films watched: I saw the new Jumanji film and, though it wasn’t a patch on the original, it was still quite funny. 

TV shows:  I’ve been rewatching The IT Crowd, it’s still so funny. 

Quote of the Month

"You'll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success if found in  your daily routine. "-John C. Maxwell

    • Thanks, Trisha. Yeah, I don’t usually take on so many at once but my moods were all over the place and I couldn’t seem to stick with anything.
