Monthly Wrap Up

Monthly Wrap Up October 2021

October felt like it was a super long month for some reason, and it was a busy one for me. I got a ton of reading done, and made time to watch Hocus Pocus (as I do every year). In addition, I finally decided to see what You was all about, and got sucked in. It’s kind of addictive, you know?

This year I vowed to focus on my goals for the year. So here we go:

  • I gained some more followers, going from 426 to 440. Only 10 more to go before I reach my goal of 450 before the end of the year!
  • I have been scheduling posts for quite some time, and I don’t ever want to go back to doing it any other way.
  • I’ve decided to do NaNo, and finished plotting out a new novel. I’m really excited about this one!
  • I am super close to getting through the never-ending pile of books I have checked out of the library, and now that my ARCs are close to single digits, I’m hoping to start working through some of the books that I own and haven’t read yet.

Here’s my breakdown of monthly/cumulative totals for October:
