October Wrap Up and Currently Reading

I hope everyone had a spooky Halloween season!! October flew by for me. I have major blogger guilt, but I'm blaming it on the Astros making it into the post-season. It's too soon to talk about that, though.

Is anyone doing NaNoWriMo this year? I'm going to attempt a life/blogging balance while participating in NaNoWriMo this year. If you need a buddy, add me! I definitely need support.

Posted Since My Last Update

  1. Good luck with NaNo. I admire all of you who are out there creating!

  2. Awesome recap! I'm hoping to read The Institute this month! :)

  3. Good luck with NaNo! I did it for many years until my kids were born and I just couldn't juggle it with everything else anymore!

    1. It is such a struggle! I'm behind, but it's helping me figure out ways to fit in my writing.

  4. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  5. Looks like an awesome month and good luck with the writing. I am thrilled to see you gave The Institute 5 stars. I have to see when I'm going to work that one in.

  6. I'm going to try to get back to A Lush and Seething Hell. That first story isn't grabbing my attention, so I put it aside. But I hear the second story is amazing, so I really need to focus on it more!

    1. Oh, I hope you were able to pick it back up. I'm so sad I haven't had time to read it.

  7. It looks like you had a great month of reading! My month was a little thin. Hopefully November will be better.

    1. I hope your November is going well. I think this month isn't going to go so great for me.
