January Recap | February Goals

squarequick_201622112447878[1]

Can you believe that January is gone. Just like that 2016 has swept into existence and has already dusted off its first month; although I must admit that it did drag itself in its last few days. Nonetheless, here we are, staring at a 29 day month with anticipation of what is to come – and no, I am not talking about Valentines Day or Leap Year proposals. *Wink wink nudge nudge*

Reading

January was the trial month to see how well I could do with reading a book a week and I must say it has been going exceptionally well. The books are at least 400 pages long so that seems to be my limit; anything that seems a bit longer is intimidating. The books I’ve read in January are:

  • The Well by Catherin Canter (3 out of 5)
  • Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (4 out of 5)
  • Finders Keepers (The Bill Hodges Trilogy) by Stephen King (4 out of 5)
  • Whisper in the Dark by Robert Gregory Browne (5 out of 5)

I am currently reading two books at once right now, Endgame: The calling which I am finding more interesting than Perter James’ Sweetheart but perhaps it’s due to the change of genre and writing style.

335 pages – Thriller – Mystery

Writing

Apart from this past Friday, my writing  has been on track with a short story every Friday (Friday Fiction) and working on a couple of stories and novels here and there when time permits. My goal for the year is to get something published. Short story. Novelette. Anything.

My previous Friday Fiction entries can be found here: Friday Fiction, and this Friday I’m posting a Double Friday Fiction to make up for this past week’s lack of story.

Blogging

I am currently a Guest Blogger on Rachel Poli’s blog  in a four part World Building series which she will be putting up on her blog once a month. You can read that here: World Building – An Intro Into World Building

I will also post updates and such as time permits, such as this one, and anything else that pops up.

February

I will be looking forward to more reading as I am really enjoying delving into a book and losing myself in the fantastical fictional worlds that exist in other people’s minds.

Also, eventually, I look to tackle Cracked Flash Fiction on Saturdays (or until Sunday 9 AM thanks to Time-Zone difference, according to a sneekily reliable birdie – yes I am looking at you Carin Marais).

As usual, I’m still going strong with Gamecca Magazine so I know my writing is always covered.

So here’s to you fellow blogger, reader, writer, a prosperous 2016.

What are your February goals?
