January was bad… and I mean bad… like, sob-in-a-cave-forever-type-of-bad bad.
…Okay, it wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t Magnus-Level-Throw-Glitter-Everywhere-Awesome, but it wasn’t SO terrible (at least for a little bit.
I think that books are trying to make me suffer (more than usual). I just wish that books WOULD LET ME LOVE THEM. Okay? And words. I just can’t do the writing things because WORDS FAIL ME and I just,,, jdgjkrdtbjkrkjbjb. This month was a mess.
Books I’ve Read:
I read a book! I swear!! I mean… eventually!!
- Dear Martin: okay this book. THIS BOOK. THIS. BOOK. There was THUG, and then there was this. This blew me away. Tore my heart out. It was brilliant. I just,,, want more books like this. (Insert star rating here) (You can check my review out here on gr)
- Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue: this book was slow at first, but then I really got into it and it was soooo not what I was expecting and I lovedddddd it. PERCYYY ❤️❤️ tho ❤️❤️ and Monty was so witty I loved it. I haven’t written a review for it yetttt, but I will get it done soon (hopefully).
low-key bugs me these covers don’t go together
What I Plan To Read Next:
Simon Vs. –> FINALLY. This has taken me SO LONG to get around to. I really want to read this and then get. out. of. this. slump. because. I. WANNA. READ AGAIN OKAY.
Lord of Shadows –> Gonna buddy read this!! I really want to read this, but the slump has been preventing me!! Hopefully, I’ll actually finish it???
City of Bones –> Going to be rereading this (10th Anniversary Edition) with Ruby Rae, who I am also reading LoS with, so that we can both get back into reading a bit before we read LoS. WE JUST WANNA READ LOS OKAY? BUT WE CAN NOT.
But who knows what’s going to happen?
So I got back into writing poetry in the past few weeks… But I sort of forgot that I had a WIP.
Okay so I’ll share some poems real quick otherwise ilsa will scream at me to send her some anyway.
But this is the issue.
I have another WIP and now I just… don’t want to continue with WIP1 anymore because. . . I just… I’m not passionate about that story anymore. Well… I am… but I’ve hit a very big wall and have some blocks on how to connect all the mini-plots events and that’s where the issue is. And even from the beginning, I just, never really knew how to connect things. My plot just wasn’t solid enough for me to write yet.
And I KNOW!! I KNOW!! “just keep writing and it will come to you!!”
But with WIP2 I know how I’m going to connect things. I know how things plan out(ish) I have it, you know???? I’m still going to be changing things as I write, but with my first WIP, I was struggling to connect things. BUT THIS ONE. THIS ONE I KNOW WHERE IT’S GOING (well more than the other one aha).
But I feel bad for leaving the other one, but the thing is there’s nothing stopping me from going back to my first WIP later on.
nothing is really happening in my life… apart from. . .
revision revision revision.
So I literally have nothing to say in this part? Or anything to say now? Okay bye.
What did you read/write this month? What did you achieve? What went on in your life? (I’m not a stalker I promse!) Let me knowwwww.
