It’s August 31st friends!
Can you believe how quickly the month flew by!
I can’t and I’m not really sure I want to see it go.
It’s been a trying month on my end, so I’m glad to see it go for that reason. But I also hate to think that we’re in the last third of the year now!
Looking back, I have made a lot of strides. I’ve been more forward in putting Pirate Eyes into the world and working diligently at perfecting her to the point of near perfection (because perfection is impossible, right??). I’m prouder of her than I’ve ever been and I feel confident saying that I’ll have her out to the public by 2017. I’m also confident that she won’t be my debut novel. More on that tomorrow 😉
I’ve also taken a lot of time to think about my life this past month. I’m not going to get deep and philosophical with you 😉 All I mean to say is that I’ve been considering who I want to be and what I want to do with my life. I know where my passion lies, I know what I want my purpose to be, but it’s become clear to me that I haven’t been focusing my life around those things. And I want that to change.
It says a lot when the only goal I’ve managed to keep this month is my reading one. I told myself that I had to read at least 5 books. I kind of read 10 ;P Which brings me up to 85 books read! 15 left and I’ll have reached my target!
Here’s a look at them as per my instagram post:
The other thing I realized was that I spent a lot of money on books and funko this month. This was what my haul looks like…
I would feel ashamed, but I can’t hate myself for putting money towards the written word when I hope some day someone will be putting a down payment on mine 🙂
How was your August? Anything exciting happen? Anything surprising? Share your experiences! See you in September 😉
May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,
