November Wrap-Up | writing a novel + reading anticipated books

Happy December, all! Well, it's that time again, time to wrap up the last month of my life. November was dominated by National Novel Writing Month for me, which I'll talk more about later.

June Wrap-Up | is it summer yet?

Goodbye, June - hello, July! June always feels like a transitionary month to me, and this year is no exception. It's not quite spring and not quite summer, and where I live, the weather is kinda teetering on the edge of both. July is typically the more exciting and summery month (my birthday! traveling! sunshine!), … Continue reading June Wrap-Up | is it summer yet?
