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?
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!
