After a brief break, THE MONTHLY WRAP-UP POSTS HAVE RETURNED.
Because when I mentioned stopping them, public outcry (aka like four people) drove me to believe that some of you guys actually do enjoy them. So now I'm tweaking things a little and including some new categories in the wrap-up, just because I was getting tired of the old categories.*
So anyways. Enough said. ON WITH THE SHOW.
*disclaimer: categories are subject to the whims of a very sporadic blogger and may change at any time
favorite blog posts
Camp NaNo Recap (aka the Month of Insanity and no Sleep) YES I KNOW. EVERYONE AND THEIR NEIGHBOR'S COUSIN DID A CAMP NANO POST. But of aaaaallll of them, this one was my favorite. So you should go read it. XD
How To Be Discerning in the Books We Read An awesome post about what discernment is, why we need it, and how to apply it to our lives.
Writers (and Star Wars) Because writing + Star Wars = awesome. You can't go wrong.
The Thing About Butterflies Ok this post is like super insightful and you just need in your life. Trust me on this. XD
night at b&n: why barnes and noble would be the best place to hide if you decided to stay in a public building for a night The title of this post speaks for itself. What are you still doing here? GO. READ. (actually wait finish reading this first XP)
One Step at a Time A super profound post about trusting God with your life.
Preparing for the Future This post title is pretty self explanatory. XD But you definitely need to go read this one. (Plus, it's from my sister's blog. Don't worry, she's much nicer than me. You can go ahead and stalk. :P)
Weeelll mostly just BUTTONS! (actually I think this was last month but I don't think I mentioned it) I have a new buttons page with like five different buttons because variety. GO AND STEAL A BUTTON, MINIONS. Also go stalk the blogs page to find some other cool blogs. (maybe your own :D)
Other than that, I hit 15,000 PAGEVIEWS AAAAAHHHHH I'M SO EXCITED.
Ahem. Anyways. *folds hands on lap to remain dignified*
I now have 46 email followers and 66 Google Friend Connect followers bringing me to a total of 112 followers. HUZZAH. :)
But other than the boring stats and the buttons there's nothing much going on with the blog so moving forwards. XD
ramblings of the month
Just in case you missed one of my posts and wanted to get caught up. :) (Plus everyone else does it so XP) Click on the picture to head over to one of my posts!
GUUUUUUUUYYYYYSSSSS I FINISHED THE RAVEN PROJECT!!!!!! The first draft is 92, 251 words. And yes, you can all read it. When I am done editing out all the plot holes for 23 years. :P
But as I was nearing the end of it, I realized that I'm going to need a sequel. XD So yup, now I've got that on my plate. I'm not really worrying about that right now though, because I still need to collect my thoughts and try not to flop down dead now that book one is done. XP Not sure when I'm starting up edits yet, I kinda want to do NaNoWriMo this year so maybe after that? But nothing's set in stone yet. :)
So the other thing I'm really working on is a dystopian idea I've had for a while but am just now really developing and starting to write. (read in: I probably should have planned more but I jumped in and cranked out the first 25k. XD)
I'm playing around with split POV (three main characters) for this one, and I'm really enjoying it so far. Although working out all the kinks is much trickier than with a one POV novel. I'm trying to finish this one by November (because like I said I'm interested in doing NaNoWriMo), and I'm doing really well actually because it's probably only going to be around 65-70k. So basically I'm already almost a third of the way done, yay. I'll probably get a page up soon for this idea, so you can look for that. :D
Aaannddd that's all for today, folks. YES I KNOOOWWW you're thinking "Um 'scuse me but what about BOOKS?" Weelllll I sort of didn't read like... hardly at all this month. XP So yeah in case you were wondering. (which we all know you were so you may as well 'fess up. XD)
BUT ANYHOW HOW DID YOUR MONTHS GO? And since I seemed to read a pitiful amount this month, what did you read? What are you writing? TELL ME AAAALLLLLL. XD
