A moment of silence for February…
… Thank you.
March has arrived and with it, a whirlwind of Autumn weather over here in the southern hemisphere, where the weather is bright and sunny one moment, then miserable and grey the next.
And it looks like my reading and writing is following suit.
The What in Wattpad
I joined Wattpad back in 2014, when I was looking for avenues that would help me build an audience for my writing. I posted two of my short stories there, one of which got me featured on a Twitter post by The Daily Post, when I was a participant in their daily prompts. Some Birds Where Meant to be Changed.
I took a step back from Wattpad when a fellow writer was in a long-standing quarrel with another Wattpad author who had taken my fellow writer’s story and posted it as their own. Plagiarism is one of my biggest fears.
I’ve decided to give Wattpad another try although it will be strictly stories I’ve posted before either here on my blog or other sources. Please feel free to go check them out.

What’s Good on Goodreads
I haven’t reviewed the last book I read Endgame: The Calling, which I raved about in my previous Book Impression. I just haven’t had time to get to it and now I’m deep into the third Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: Library of Souls, with the intention of Reviewing that too. The Endgame Book review should be up on today’s Wednesday Book Review so look out for that later.
In the mean time, I managed to head to my favourite bookstore, Exclusive Books Greenstone, and I bought a couple of books to read, one of which is this amazing book I also mentioned before: The Watchmaker of Filigree Street.
There is still plenty reading that must happen in these early days, as I attempt to catch up from a slow February.
Camping it out at CampNaNo
April is March-ing along (sorry could’t resist) towards existence, which means it will be time for Camp NaNoWrimo. It is a less intense version of NaNoWriMo in that you are not forced to write 50 000 words, and can, in fact, work on whatever you want; as long as you do some writing. So for the first time since signing up for NaNoWriMo, I will be participating in Camp NaNo, my focus this time will be a set of short stories I wrote where I personify Sin. You can see my previous attempts on the menu bar above, under the heading Wages of Sin.
I hope you too will be participating in this endeavour and if not, cheer us on! I have joined up with a couple of other Joburg writers and we are sharing a “cabin”, continuing in the camaraderie we have built from our last NaNo gathering.

What’s are your March goals?
