First of all I'll start by saying that I'm not sure if anyone has used that title before, but I thought of it and it made me laugh. If you don't know, NaNoWriMo is currently underway, and the goal for writers is to conjure up 50,000 words in just 30 days. That's an average of 1,667 words per day.
I've combined my October wrap-up with September because I never actually posted one. I've been awful at posting lately and there are several reasons why, the main one being that I am writing a thesis. A dumb reason I put off posting is because to make my blog's graphic I have to use my mother's computer and it's so slow. I've also kind of lost my spark for blogging, which is sad, but maybe it will come back now that it's my uni break! My break is 4 months (but I still have to write a 15000 word thesis).
For Halloween this month, I have decided to read a horror book. I honestly know nothing about this genre of books because the only horror books I've read are Misery by Stephen King and a few Goosebumps books. I want some really terrifying books to read, so I compiled a list of five books that I would really like to read. I also have chosen one that I am definitely going to read by the 31st of October.
Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it. Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things. But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?

It's already the 4th of September and August is definitely over. I'm currently in the middle of an assignment that is taking over my life, but I'd already half-written this post and thought I could just finish it today. August was an okay month – nothing really of significance happened to me! Books read August … Continue reading August wrap-up
Hey everyone! It is almost September and for once I have finished my bullet journal in time for the new month! My theme for September is cherry blossoms, and basically every design was inspired by MyLifeinaBullet's youtube video. I really like how it turned out – it's definitely one of my favourite spreads that I have … Continue reading September bullet journal spread 🌸
Lately I haven't had the energy to write book reviews, but today I had the time to write down a few of the most recent books I have read. I have written mini reviews of Leah on the Offbeat, Thirteen Reasons Why, The Bell Jar and A Thousand Perfect Notes.
The other day I randomly had the idea to create a book quiz, so I did! I decided to base the quiz on YA books because I know the genre pretty well. Each of the quotes are divided into categories, such as YA romance. Check out the quiz here! The link is where you will find the answers, but here is a list of all the quotes and their possible books.
I have always struggled with plotting my stories. I think most writers out there have loads of unfinished stories, but these stories remain unfinished for different reasons. I often abandon my stories because I struggle with making the plot seem realistic and logical. Lately, with my stories, I have noticed that I try to put … Continue reading Writing Diary #1 – Plotting is hard
