    Hello wonderful people!

    It’s June, meaning it’s summertime!

    It’s only been three days, and I’m already so pumped up.

    I participated in two blog tours last month, travelled to Oxford University, I was able to buy some books there as well :), and I’ve made some huge progresses around the board as well.

    In May, I had these resolutions:

    1. Post some book reviews

    I did two! And they were awesome books as well, you can read themย  here for The Coronation and here for The Rebellion

    2. Read more books.ย 

    Yes, and I finished my reading goal on Goodreads! If any of you guys are on Goodreads, I’d love to connect with youย here

    3. Write two short stories

    I wrote a short story and an article, so I was nearly there.

    4. Compose another song.

    I composed two! I’m so proud of myself considering how nervous I was of the ideas.

    Now that May’s done, let’s move onto June:

    1. Start thinking about guest posting,
    2. Compose another piece
    3. Start preparing for Camp NaNoWriMo
    4. Start planning for some projects ๐Ÿ™‚

    How about you?

    How was May for you this year? Have you got any ideas for June?

    March Reflections and April Resolutions

    Hello everyone.

    So, it’s kinda the middle of April (^^)

    My excuses for writing this so late?

    Travelling and Camp NaNoWriMo.

    What? I don’t just blog you know!

    Anyhew, so March was last month.

    The main part of March? I went to France and had the best host family that I could dream off ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh yeah, Easter was good too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    So these were my resolutions for last month:

    1. Finish No et Moi

    I did it, and I definitely recommend it.
    2. Start preparing for Camp NaNoWriMo

    Yup, and now I’m going through another horrible first draft ๐Ÿ™‚
    3. Compose, or finish, a song

    Yay! Now onto April’s song!
    4. Finish my outline for my novel.

    The italics meant that I did it, sort of. I outlined A novel, but not THE novel that I’ve been outlining for the past few months.
    5. Actually blog about a few upcoming travels.

    This one, I didn’t do ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Buuut, you may see some of my adventures soon in a different way ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ok, now that March is done and dusted, let’s head on over to April:

    1. Camp NaNoWriMo. ‘Nuff said
    2. Start reading another French book.
    3. Compose another song/piece.
    4. Read more books in my spare time.
    5. Draft some reviews.

    There we have it!

    A quick note about April-June:

    I will be in and out because school gets real busy this time of year.

    How about you?

    How was March?

    How’s April?ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

    February Reflections and March Resolutions

    Hello everyone!

    Is it seriously March already?

    February was very good as I had a few performances and travelled to London for a bit.

    Last month, I had these Resolutions:

    Do some beta-reading that has a deadline for March ย ย 

    I did, and boy did I enjoy the books ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll post some reviews on the books in the upcoming months, so stay tuned!

    Do some more outlining.

    I have, and I think I’m almost halfway!

    Actually read, and possibly finish, No et Moi, along with possibly watching a French film.

    Not only did I read No et Moi, I’m halfway done!

    Start writing a story for a competition and a possibly writerโ€™s collection, both deadlines in March.

    Yes, and it was really fun to do as I was writing a poem instead, which is something that I don’t usually do.

    Compose one piece.

    I got a few melodies out, but I don’t think it’s completed yet, so hopefully I’ll finish it off this month.

    Start planning what to blog about in March + April as well as continue to blog this month.

    Yes, and I’m very excited for the posts that are coming up.

    So, now that we’re in March, it means that we have some Resolutions!

    1. Finish No et Moi
    2. Start preparing for Camp NaNoWriMo
    3. Compose, or finish, a song
    4. Finish my outline for my novel.
    5. Actually blog about a few upcoming travels.

    And there we have it!

    How about you?

    Do you have any plans for March?

    January Reflections and February Resolutions

    Hello everyone!

    It’s February already? Yikes, I’m still adjusting to the fact that we’re in 2018!

    Last month, I had an amazing time getting back into school, making new friends, being involved in another blog tour and of course, my birthday.

    I also made these resolutions last month:

    1. Begin to fully outline my novel, which should take me two-three months.

    Yep, I’ve started and I’m having a blast imagining what’s going on and finally making my characters and plot go deeper. It should be done, considering school, at the end of March ready to edit the first draft my novel like I am participating Camp NaNoWriMO in April. 2. Start doing a composition a month.

    Yeah, I guess I’ve done that, but really it was a school assignment. I did enjoy it, though and I will definitely try to do another one next month.
    3. Start doing Writing Wednesdays to encourage writers.

    Yes, I did and although January was busier than I had expected, I was able to do two Wednesdays. Hopefully in February, I’ll be able to do weekly. If not, fortnightly it is. I have some really cool things to share this month.
    4. Start encouraging people on social media.

    Wow, I ended up encouraging myself with some of the things that I wrote! It was really interesting doing that because I grew more and more aware of what other people think and say than I was at the start of the year.
    5. Continue reading No et Moi, and memorize one French song

    The French song, yes. No et Moi, no. I find it ironic because I managed to read a few other books, but not continue with No et Moi. Perhaps if I treat it like a novel that I love, and I do when I read it in English, instead of a mini challenge, then I’d read more of it.

    So, that’s January done. Now onto February:

    1. Do some beta-reading that has a deadline for March
    2. Do some more outlining.
    3. Actually read, and possibly finish, No et Moi, along with possibly watching a French film.
    4. Start writing a story for a competition and a possible writer’s collection, both deadlines in March.
    5. Compose one piece.
    6. Start planning what to blog about in March + April as well as continue to blog this month.

    How about you?

    How was January for you?

    Do you have any resolutions for February? If so, what are they?

    December Reflections and January 2018 Reflections

    Hello everyone.

    Is it seriously 2018 now?

    A lot has happened in the past month, or year if you’re picky!,.

    I had a really fun Christmas, probably one of the best Christmases I’ve had and I pray that you had the same experience.

    Last December, I had these resolutions:

    1. Try to get to Chapter 10 in my edits, ( Iโ€™m already on Chapter 5 with editing, as I slowly began editing the book in August!)

    Whilst I did get somewhere with my editing, I decided to redo the whole story and start with a solid outline.

    2. Meet up with some of my friends for Christmas, and simply get Christmasy this year.

    I did meet up with some friends and I’ve met some new ones as well, which was really nice. I also took photos of different decorations and trees, which you can find on my Instagram,ย  to get in the mood of Christmas, as well as watching a really cute Christmas film on Netflix called A Christmas Prince.

    3. Start listening to more French music( Iโ€™m working on being fluent in French as a life goal, and my friend whoโ€™s fluent in French suggested reading books, watching films and listening to music all in French.)

    I didn’t listen to more French music, but I did get a French book from school which I’ve read in the ย English language, No et Moi. I’ve slowly started reading it in French whilst resisting the urge to write notes on the pages!

    4. Do a lot more blogging than normal for Christmas, as well as write some Christmas stories and poems for you guys!

    I did blog more with tributes, although it wasn’t exactly Christmasy,ย  it was still fun. I did write a Christmas story, but I only finished it a couple of days before the New Year. Oh well. I can share it with you next year.

    Ok, 2017 over and dusted. What about 2018?

    This year, as well as my yearly goals, I will still have monthly goals to lead towards them as well as just reflecting on the previous month.

    For January 2018, my resolutions are:
    1. Begin to fully outline my novel, which should take me two-three months.
    2. Start doing a composition a month.
    3. Start doing Writing Wednesdays to encourage writers.
    4. Start encouraging people on social media.
    5.ย  Continue reading No et Moi, and memorize one French song.
    Yeah, as you can see, I’m starting a lot of new things this month, which is a good thing. Speaking of new things,ย this month on Golden Medallion, a website encouraging young people who are Christians, ย we’re talking about New Beginnings and Change.
    How about you?
    How was your Christmas?
    Do you have any New Years Resolutions?
