2021: The Year of Kindness

I can't believe 2021 is already over. I remember how I was so excited for 2020 to be over last year (two years?), cause, let's be honest: it sucked. ๐Ÿคฃ But 2021... huh. I didn't expect it to be done already, if that even makes sense? But at the same time, looking back at this year, so much happened, that it seems like it has lasted a really long time. ๐Ÿค” I did an overview post in 2019, and 2020, and decided that I really should just make this annual thing by this point. ๐Ÿ˜† So let's take a look at this past year.

12 Days of Christmas Book Tag: 2021 Edition

Yep, it's official: this is now an annual thing. ๐Ÿ˜† I did this tag in 2019, and then in 2020. I attempt to keep it limited now to just what I read this past year - which will make this year's a little difficult. ๐Ÿ˜… I was *cough* a little busy *cough* with grade 12 and then working and writing and doing lots of life stuff *cOuGh* soooooo not much reading happened. But! I am going to try it and see what happens, anyway. ๐Ÿ˜œ Let's do this!

NANoWriMo 2021 Celebration!

NaNoWriMo is over for another year - and that means that it's time for us to celebrate!! No matter how much you wrote (or revised, in my case) and whether or not you hit your goal (which um I didn't ๐Ÿ˜…), we all deserve to throw around some confetti and feast on coffee and chocolate croissants.

NaNoWriMo 2021: Days 22-30 (Final Week!)

Welcome to the final week of NaNoWriMo! I'm stretching this one out a little bit longer, as I don't want to do a single post with the last 2 days separately... but anyway! At the beginning of NaNoWriMo, I set the goal to revise 100k of my novel. I am currently, oh, about 50k behind that goal. That said, let's see what I can get done this week. After all, the real point of my revising version of NaNoWriMo is to work on this 3rd Draft of my book! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Why I’m Not Doing NaNoWriMo This Year

I am infamous for my NaNoWriMo shenanigans: every year, ever since I began this blog, I've spent the month of November rushing to write 50,000 words alongside thousands of other writers, sharing my experiences (and snippets!) on my blog. Not to mention all my posts helping writers prep for NaNoWriMo, or posts after the fact. Here, actually, I'll compile a whole list:
