What I’ve Been Doing Lately

Today I thought I’d update my readers on what I’ve been doing lately since it’s been a few months since my last post.

Finishing up my NaNo novel, Ella’s Cinders. This was my longest rough draft with 80,355 words! I finished it all up on November 29th.

Editing Ella’s Cinders! I really love this novel, and I didn’t want to waste any time getting to work on the second draft.

Listening to a lot of Christina Perri. For whatever reason, her songs have been Ella’s Cinders soundtrack, so I’ve listened through her two albums at least ten times now! Ella’s theme song, “Burning Gold,” is one of Christina Perri’s.

Reading Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl. I’m a big fan of the Black Widow, so I was excited to read this book. It’s been pretty good so far.

Also reading Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe for school. I thought it was going to be slow and boring but it’s actually exciting and interesting!

Waiting to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 this month. I’m so ready and yet I am not ready for everything to end!

Watching Vsauce (and Vsauce 2 and Vsauce 3) on YouTube recently. It’s a channel dedicated to explaining science and the way things work. It’s really interesting, and one of my favorite shows are the ones they do about DONGS (or things you can Do Online Now, Guys), which are interesting websites they dig up.

Looking forward to competing with my ice rink’s production team this year. It’s the first year I’ve gotten to compete, and I’m excited/nervous about it!

Enjoying having beta readers. I’m having a few of my NaNoWriMo friends read through my rough draft before I start editing, and I’ve been enjoying their advice/comments.

Excited to see that the snow has started on my blog again! I love that.

Disliking the fact that my Thanksgiving break is over. I want to have more time to write!

Receiving gifts from Japan! My friend in Japan sent me a box of Japanese snacks and gifts for Christmas. I had lots of fun unwrapping it all.

 Thanking you for reading. 🙂
