    November Reads & Final NaNoWriMo Tally

    Hiya! Obviously, I didn’t get much reading done this month because of NaNoWriMo, which is totally okay, because as of this posting, I only have two books left to read for the year to meet my goal, and I’m sure I can manage that. 😀 I’m honestly surprised I got anything read this month. When I wasn’t writing or working or forcing myself to go to bed at a decent hour, I was binging Gotham on Netflix. ^_^ 57: Manga Classics: Dracula Author: Bram Stoker, Adapted by: Stacy King, Illustrated by: Virginia Nitouhei Genre: Manga, Horror Rating: 5 stars Reviewed: Yes So satisfying!! I hadn’t read this in so long,…

    NaNoWriMo Update!

    GUYS!! ^_^ Things are still going well! Things are actually going well! I can hardly believe it. 😀 Current word count: 33,896 I’m expecting the first draft to end up on the shorter side, maybe around 60k, but we’ll see. I have a “finished” mini outline. I say “finished” because I thought it was finished last time, and then I realized that I had three Mondays in a row, and well, that doesn’t happen in real life outside of a metaphorical sense. And also, I had to rearrange things because there was a minor change in the story, of course. I can’t wait to be in editing mode. This is…

    Updated Rewriting Plans & NaNoWriMo

    NaNoWriMo is underway, so I have a nearly mid-month word count update below. 😀 I wanted to talk about rewriting again, because it’s relevant to the work-in-progress. ^_^ I woke up one day with a solution to the larger “Puppet Box” issues! Just like BOOM. Solved. 😛 Actually, I had a dream the night before that I was a werewolf, and I was all stressed because I was trying to hide it from my neighbors so they wouldn’t try to kill me, but my guide was all like, “No, you’re hiding so you don’t have to kill them.” And for some reason there was this super creepy Santa-thing in a…

    October Reads: 2019

    Hi! (waves) ^_^ I had to go a little easier on myself this month, because I think I overdid it a bit in September. Lol! 52: Batman: The Killing Joke Author: Alan Moore, Illustrator: Brian Bolland Genre: Comic Book, DC Comics Rating: 4 stars Reviewed: No I like how we get a Joker origin story and we still don’t get his name. This was quite dark. Like, the Joker is an actual psycho. Alan Moore also wrote Watchmen, which is super violent and super dark as well, so I really should have expected it. I didn’t, but I thought this was good. On a side note, I decided to read…

    Getting My TBR Under Control

    The Goodreads TBR is not a reflection of all the books on my TBR. It’s only a reflection of books on my TBR that I don’t own. I figured, if I own the book, I should remember to read it. That helped with a fraction of the list. As of writing this, my Goodreads TBR is 174, down from 479. Like, can a girl get a high five or something?! 😀 After deleting all the books I own on a physical or digital shelf, except one, for nonsense reasons, I opened nearly every single other book and skimmed the blurb. Yes, this took days, but like I said in my…
