Here is my week 3 of February, all wrapped up. I am kind of loving these wrap ups. I hope you are enjoying them, too. They are a nice way to keep me motivated.
Here is my TBR for the last week of February.
I participated in a readathon called Because Dragons. Here are the books that were on my TBR for the week.
When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore (Review)
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh (I am literally sighing. I want to read it. Hopefully in March, I will).
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab
Eon by Alison Goodman (Nope! That book is huge and I was intimidated)
-Get halfway through my novel
(I will work on it in March. Maybe won’t get to the halfway point yet, but I definitely feel more determined to put in the work for my novel).
Start exercising daily (walks maybe?)
(I kind of started walking exercises. Not every day. But, multiple times per week.)
Read and journal every day
(Yes to the reading. No, to the journal and meditation practice. Time management needs some tweaking.)
-Integrate creative writing into the blog/Twitter
(Nope. I have a lot of anxiety about my worth as a person, and so I worry a lot about occupying space in the world as a writer. I feel like my voice is good enough, not clever enough, not unique enough, and it shows. I will write more, though. Maybe then, I can develop some courage).
Overall: Goodbye, February
I was more active in this month than I have been in years. My focus was better, and I was able to study some languages on my own. I felt good about myself, for a little bit. Then, I started to falter. The trick for me is to find the strength in me, and only me, to carry on when faced with criticism and negative opinions.
I’m looking forward to the next month: one week at a time. Keep an eye out for my readathons’ TBRs. I have a few things lined up.
