January Begins… and Nearly Ends

Well let’s face it. I failed NaNo all around. I did better in November than I did in December, even though the challenge was really simple.

I’m not sure what it is with me. I don’t make the time to write. Even when I have it, and I sit at the computer with the intention to write, I think, what could I say that the world would want to read?

And then I come up blank.

I actually started this blog post on January 1, with the intent to ring in the New Year with a little something.

But, no. Still blank.

Then it occurred to me: I need to start over. Really, start over. Go back even further. You know what got me writing in the first place?

Reading.

I used to read every day, finishing at least one book per week. Upon completion, I would write a mini review. I was writing weekly blog posts simply offering opinions on what other people wrote. Genius.

So this New Year’s Resolution is just that. I will read at least two novels per month and offer my opinion, for what it’s worth.

January’s reads include:
MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN by Ransom Riggs
THE 39 CLUES BOOK ONE: THE MAZE OF BONES by Rick Riordan
FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM: MAGICAL MOVIE HANDBOOK

I have already finished reading these three books, now I just need to find the time, and the courage, to sit down and write my thoughts on them!

  1. Great idea! Sometimes, as writers, we need to be inspired by other writers. And reading is the way! Love it, love you!
