I’ve seen many other brilliant bloggers do monthly wrap-up posts, so I thought I would go ahead and do one too. If you’re a newer reader, welcome! Hopefully you’ll get more of a chance to see what I’m all about here.
I didn’t miss a single day last month! Here are all my posts for my 366 Days of Writing Challenge, in chronological order by category. Here’s the post explaining what I intend to do with my daily postings. I did change Sundays to poetry, which I discussed in this reflection.
Monday: 50 Words Or Less
Tuesday: Violetta’s Story
Thursday: Inspired by My Life (Basically, whatever I want)
Saturday: Song Lyric Pieces
I was inspired by Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Bon Iver, and Birdy last month!
Additionally, here are the links to all my book reviews for this month!
Shatter Me by There Mafi
The Oddfits by Tiffany Tsao
The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
The Glass Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
The best new book of January was Illuminae, which rocketed up to be one of my all-time favorites. The Raven Boys is a perennial favorite!
My favorite writings to do were actually the song lyric pieces; I found music inspired some really interesting writings that went places I could never have imagined. My Violetta stories, based on my family, were also very rewarding. Thanks to Peri of Poems from the Perimeter for commenting and loving them (and everything else I did!).
I also planned out my novel and wrote several thousand words in it! So, January was a good month. Which of my pieces did you guys enjoy? How was your January? Any suggestions for future topics, songs, or books? Any new features you want me to add? Leave me a comment and tell me!
