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

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.
