Celebrate the Small Things

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop hosted by Viklit over at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week.

This week I'm celebrating: 
- Just two more days at work and then I get a couple of days off. Thank goodness for that, a seven day trot is far too long! 
- The Harry Potter series. I'm so happy to be re-reading it again, I absolutely love it. 
- I'm going Christmas shopping on Tuesday - I can't wait, I haven't started yet so it should be fun.

What's Up Wednesday

What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Erin L Funk and Jaime Morrow, and the idea is to let other bloggers know where you are with any writing and reading goals you may have.

1. What I'm Reading

Since the last time I wrote a post for What's Up Wednesday, I've read three books: Four: A Divergent Story Collection by Veronica Roth; Rain by Virginia Bergin and Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater. My favourite was the latter, of course. 
I'm now reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. It's only been a year since my last re-read of the series, but I couldn't resist breaking into my new set!

2. What I'm Writing

Not much, at the minute. I'm in the middle of a seven day trot at work, so hopefully on my next day off (Monday) I'll get a little writing done! I'm hoping to continue with my NaNo edits from last year, and also finish off the stories I started for Halloween blogfests.

3. What Works for Me

At the moment? …

Goals for November

Another busy month, work-wise, so I didn't quite manage to achieve all of my goals, again!

These were my goals for October:

- Read 3 books - This one I managed, just!

- Take part in the four blogfests I've signed up for - I half achieved this one. I took part in two of the blogfests, but not the other two because I ran out of time to write the stories. Hopefully I'll get more writing done this month. 

Here are my goals for November: 
- Read 3 books - I should manage this without too much trouble. I love to read too much not to! 
- Start Christmas shopping - I really need to start, I haven't bought any presents yet. I do have plans for presents though, which is good! 
- Resume work on last years NaNo edits - I've missed writing, and I'm determined to start writing regularly again.
