The Great NaNo To-Do List
So it's just over a month now until NaNoWriMo. Eep. I wrote a little about it previous, and since then have made some decisions. Yes, I am going to do NaNo. Yes, I have decided what I am going to write. And yes, I am terrified.
Of course, with the decision to do NaNoWriMo comes at least a little bit of planning. I'm not talking about coming up with a great big outline, but getting a few little things done now so I don't have to worry during the month of November. So behold: The Great NaNo To-Do List (2016 edition)!
Tales from the To-Read Tower #1
So, like any good bookworm, I have a to-real pile. Although when I look at it properly - and especially if I were to add in the ebook library - it would be more like a tower. There are a lot of memes out there dedicated to showing off unread books, but if I were to give one book a week some focus it would take forever.
And I suspect I am not the only one in this position.
Manga Review: Midnight Secretary
Anyone who knows me knows I am up for checking out any book that has to do with vampires. It's just one of my things, you know? Some people like their billionaires, others their cowboys, and others still Highlanders or Vikings. Me, it's vampires. So of course I was going to read a romance manga with vampires in it.
The (Not So) Dreaded DNF
Many years ago, in the earlier days of my book blogging career, I was of the belief that it was my duty to finish every book that came my way for review. (I wasn't one of those bloggers receiving multiple books a week, which made the idea seem quite feasible.) It was a holdover from my regular reading habits, where I managed to finish everything - mainly because I was pretty good at picking out books that I would, at the very least, quite like.
Who Likes Free Things? I Do!
Did I get your attention with that post title? I hope so.
I like to make book covers (see my portfolio for more examples of my work) and now I have begun practicing formatting entire ebooks because that's a useful skill to have, right? So behold the results of my first serious experiment: The Blue Fairy Book by Andrew Lang.
Five-Day: Podcasts I Like
From five songs about vampires, to five terrible-amazing book title puns, Five-Day is the Friday-specific post series where I bring you five items on a theme. What’s the theme this week? Podcasts I Like!
A Land Far Far Away
I’ve wanted to go to Disneyland for as long as I’ve been aware of such a thing existing, and the same is true for Walt Disney World too. Being in America only seemed to add to the magic: they were literally in a land far far away. So I contented myself in watching the movies, singing along to the songs, and imagining what it would be like when I one day got to go to the magical kingdom.
Thinking Ahead – NaNoWriMo
We're less than two months away from NaNoWriMo and yet it seems both nearer and further than it actually is. Then again, the year in general has gone by strangely fast - despite not much happening (at least for me). It's a terrifying thought, that time and life is passing me by without experiencing much at all.
