WHOA… Did I say MARCH!?
YES, IT’S MARCH! I am in complete and utter disbelief. I mean, last time I checked, it was still the middle of winter and it was cold and we were talking about Christmas and the New Year?! Where did all the time go!?
Tell me that I am not the only one who feels this way!
Anyway! I am super glad that spring is on its way! I am a spring/summer person! (What am I doing in Canada? … I have no idea.)
I am actually so, SO excited about reading each and every one of these books. The one that I am starting with is Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, which I have been curious about ever since my childhood (seriously!)
I discovered this gorgeous print edition at a second-hand book store. Although this is a 2003 edition, it is still in mint condition! It is meant to be!
Read 5 books! Unhaul my books! Dabble in some Classic literature!
Write a bit each day. I did this throughout February and it worked really well. I loved the idea of keeping the creative juices flowing without having the pressure of writing a certain amount each day.
However, I realized that it takes me a while to get into the mindset of writing, and that sometimes doesn’t happen when I write in short bursts. Also, I haven’t been writing much during the weekends (thanks to an addictive board game #nothanks). So…
Commit to 2 weekends of writing. For my previous novel, the bulk of my writing was done on the weekend, and that was when I felt most in tune with my characters and my story. I want to have the same feeling with my new novel too.
Post twice weekly. Blog-hop twice weekly.
Post about my other weird and wonderful hobbies (pole! DIY! travel! fashion!?) I have some super exciting updates coming up, which I just need to put into pictures and words!
Continue to compost, recycle, and use reusable napkins/containers/shopping bags. I am super happy with how this is going!
Use reusable produce bags. These are the thinner bags that you get from the grocery store to hold loose fruits and veggies BEFORE going to the cashier. Since reusable produce bags are harder to come by……. this might be a DIY!?
My Bullet Journal*
I was inspired by Shanah and Kelly’s beautiful bullet journal spreads, so I decided to attempt my own! You guys can see some of my reading/writing/blog goals here. Rebecca and The Bell Jar are on my “must-read list” this month, while the other choices are flexible (since I am a mood reader!)
*Pssst…. I am kind of cheating on this bullet journal thing! This is an actual journal, in that the weekly pages are already laid out. However there are blank pages at the end of each month which I am using for my monthly goals. I thought this would be a good and non-intimidating way to ease into the bullet journal business 🙂
