December Goals: No Jingle Bells Here

5-things

It’s the 1st of December and I don’t need to go further than my emails to know that everyone is getting hyped up for Christmas and December holidays. Not me.

I’ll be busy working towards 2017 during December, and there is a lot to work through.

Anthology

I have announced before that I am working on a short story anthology. Two in fact, one of my own personal stories and another from Patreon suggested short stories. My dear friend and amazing artist Leesan Naidoo, has been designing the covers for each of my short stories, and I must say they look amazing. I look forward to publishing my anthology. Obviously it involves a lot of work, but that’s to be expected.

I’ve also changed a couple of things on my Patreon page and will be starting that up again. If you have any suggestions for a December short story, feel free to send suggestions in the comment section below.

Book Reviews

I’ll be continuing my book reviews as usual. A lot of the books I read, have been for Gamecca Magazine, and I’m not sure if I’m allowed to post those reviews on my blog too. Which is why my Wednesday Book Reviews have been a little slow. I’ve effectively been reading two books a week. According to Goodreads, I’m 6 books behind but by next week it should be down to 3 at the most.

Book Review requests are still coming in, and there’s an annual February event looming that I’ll be part of. So much reading, so little time.

If you want to know what I’m currently reading, here’s my Goodreads Reading List.

General HooHah

I’ll be guest blogging during December on a friend and fellow writer’s blog Life In Light of Eternity, with our focus on Christmas in our own little Advent Calendar. Different authors, varying formats and insightful stuff. Join us!

I’ll be revamping my website NthatoMorakabi.com. Design. Content. etc. I’ll also be starting up my monthly Newsletter with updates on everything happening. You can subscribe to the newsletter here.

In last week’s post, The Creative’s Burden, I listed a number of things I wished I could do and didn’t have time for. Rather than do the whole “2017 Resolutions” thing, I’ll be kick starting a couple of those ideas this month.

In short, I’ll hitting the ground running. I hope you will continue to endure with me through the last remaining days of this month and onward to 2017.

Happy Writing!

  1. I will be spending a lot of December prepping for 2017 as well. I have so many new ideas for my blog and my newsletter that I’m not sure how I’m going to get it all done, lol.
    Good luck with all your plans and I can’t wait to see the outcome. 🙂

  2. Because I have a month off between semesters, December is definitely a “preparing for 2017” time for me as well.I am planning a special teaching project for January, so a lot of December will be aimed at that.
    I am always interested in what you are reading because you read such a wide variety of things.
