The Monthly Hufflepuff: August

What the hell why am I wrapping up August already and why am I not on the Hogwarts Express right now

Bless Goodreads for existing because I barely remember what I read this month

writing-3

While I didn’t write as much as during July, I did write quite a bit, not to mention plan, write outlines, worldbuilding etc. I didn’t really work much on my still unnamed contemporary that was my Camp NaNo project, but I did work on The Chosen Ones. I’d share some snippets but honestly it’s such a mess and while I like where it’s going now and what I’ve written lately, I want to rewrite it woops.

Also I cancelled last week’s Young Writers Chat because I wasn’t feeling well, and honestly while I didn’t say anything about it yet on Twitter I’m going to have to cancel this week’s as well. I’m just super tired and not motivated :/ I haven’t really been motivated to blog/read other people’s blogs either. So hopefully there will be another chat next Saturday.

2016goals

Right, I set myself some goals for this years.

  • I set myself the challenge to read the classics on my shelves for 2015, I didn’t read any of them. So I set myself the challenge again this year, and I finally read Persuasion. Whatever happens the rest of the year, at least I won’t fail this challenge entirely lol
  • With Wink Poppy Midnight I read 5 books for The Contemporary Challenge. I’m aiming for at least 11 books, so I’m pretty behind
  • I scheduled posts before school starts yay! There are still posts left that I want to schedule, but I’m already quite satisfied with what I did
  • I finally wrote the last two posts about my trip to Orlando
  • And while I haven’t finished The Army of Quermo, I did work on it

what I posted-2

nextmonth

I only have a few days of Summer holidays left, so I expect to be really busy when school starts. Like I said, I do have some posts scheduled. I think I have at least 3 every week this month? I’m not entirely sure.

How has your month been? Read any good books? Did anything fun? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I like your monthly round ups. Even when you don’t think you’ve been productive, you still always get so much done. I hope you feel better and more energetic soon. Some news and surprises on my blog btw :)

  2. Well I added Anne of Green Gables and The Hero, The Sword, and The Dragons based on this post! I seen Anne around a lot since one of my high school friends posts a great deal about her (I believe they’re coming out with a new show).

    Enjoy the rest of your holiday! I have a vacation from work for the next two weeks and plan to spend that writing 8-10 hours a day and playing catch up for as much as I can :)

    • Aww :( The one perk of uni: long Summer holidays lol. I’m starting tomorrow – EEK.
      Omg same. I was at a job interview and because I said I liked to read, they asked me what the last book I read was. MY MIND WENT BLANK. I WAS LIKE: WHAT BOOK. BOOKS? WHAT ARE THOSE

      • The first day was SO WEIRD. We had class in a completely different building in a huge classroom with another class, so we had no idea who our classmates were except for the few people who had been in our old class haha.
        SAME. I NEED AN EXPLANATION FOR THIS. HOW DOES THIS WORK. IT ALSO HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE ARE LIKE ‘WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE’ AND I’M LIKE MUSIC?? WHAT MUSIC. DO I LISTEN TO THAT
