Wow, it’s May! I am so glad to see the weather warming up and to have more sunny days here in Vancouver. I’m definitely looking forward to doing more things outdoors, such as running and hiking! Is it warm over where you guys at?
This month I am continuing with re-reading Harry Potter (yay!) I am also super excited to read Leah on the Offbeat now that it is released (fingers crossed for the library wait list!) I started the Diary of Anne Frank audiobook last month and hoping to finish it soon!
Now is the time to talk goals (yay!) I find that I don’t always achieve my monthly goals, and that for me it is usually a matter of not having enough time rather than not being conscientious enough. (Self, you’re forgiven.) This month I want to set some realistic goals.
Read 4 books!
Continue re-reading the Harry Potter series!
Based on the past few months, 4 books may be a more realistic target for me. Also, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is definitely on the long side!
Wrap up my WIP!
My goal in April is to finish my WIP, which I actually kind of did. However I realized the beginning was terrible so now I am rewriting the first 15K words :’) Hoping this would be done done in the next 1-2 weeks!
Start drafting a new novel using the Snowflake Method!
Initially I had planned on revising an old manuscript, however I changed my mind and instead decided to write something new. Truth be told, I haven’t started a new novel from scratch since a year and a half ago (even my current WIP is a rewrite) and I miss the feeling of a blank page.
The Snowflake Method is a technique for plotting a novel (thanks to my Camp Nano cabin for teaching me this!) The gist is that you start off with a simple idea and gradually expand on it. Check out this page for a step-by-step guide!
Celebrate the 1-year blog-versary of Sophie’s Corner on May 24!
Wow, honestly I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for almost a year! It’s been an incredible journey so far. I am hoping to do something special, but the thing is I am absolutely clueless at blog-versaries since… well, it’s my first one :’) Maybe a Q&A post? How would you guys celebrate your blog-versary?
Do some DIY!
Now that I will soon be between WIPs, I thought it’d be a good time to dabble in my other hobby, which is sewing. There was a sale at my local fabric store so I have all the supplies ready!
Plan my wedding!?
Oh the thought of planning my wedding overwhelms me! Which is why I’ve been procrastinating! (The engagement happened in June 2017 haha…) However my friends and family have been asking, so I figure I should get started. Any wedding planning tips?! What is your dream wedding like?
