Did You Miss Me?

Did you miss me? Did you miss me? Did you miss me? – Moriarity ‘BBC Sherlock’

Maybe not the best quote, but at least a quote. Also, just a tip: don’t assign your characters quotes from ‘Sherlock’ once I did that, and it scared me because of how creepy it ended up making the characters… And that story never got past the planning stage…

It has been over a month since I last posted. I didn’t mean for it to be this long. First I had finals and then I just haven’t been feeling like writing, but here I am now. It may take a bit, but I am hoping to go back to my normal posting schedule which is posting twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Since I haven’t been posting, it makes sense for me to give a bit of an update on what is going on.

Life

Life has been crazy. I’ve been busy and there have been a lot of decisions that I’ve had to make. Things have quieted down now, and I’m hoping that I will be able to write more.

Writing

I obviously have not been writing on my blog, however I have been doing some other writing.

Mainly I’ve been writing poetry and Avengers stories to deal with various plot holes.

So, really not the best for me writing wise because I am working on a fantasy novel and I haven’t worked on that.

I am planning on doing Camp NaNoWriMo, although I am still trying to figure out what I am writing. I was planning to try to finish the first draft of my fantasy novel, but right now I am having trouble even looking at what I have already done, so I may be working on a different writing project. Although I do know that it will be an original story, and will not have any Avengers in it.

Personality

I haven’t done anything with MBTI or Enneagram recently, but I should because it is interesting. I will blog about it very soon.

Although part of that may have been that I just took a class on Abnormal Psychology, so you may be getting some post that have to do with that and how to use that in your writing soon.

Books

This is probably going to be the longest section because I still have been reading quite a lot.

I’ll share my favorite books that I read in May with you, but you will have to wait until June is over to hear about my favorite books that I read then.

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

This book is just so fun. It is a fairy tale. It has magic and mystery. It is basically a classic fairy tale where the characters are actual people.

If you haven’t read this book and you enjoy light-hearted fantasies, I recommend you give this book a try.

Death on the Air and Other Stories by Ngaio Marsh

I just discovered this mystery author, and this is a collection of some of her short stories. I am really glad that I did discover her writing. She wrote about the same time as Agatha Christie, except she was Australian.

So, far I have read three of her mysteries including this book and I would be interested in reading more in the future.

This one was interesting because it had such a variety of her writing, so it was possible to see the different ways that she would write her mysteries. One was even written as a play, and as she was also an actress that shouldn’t be particularly surprising. In fact, quite a few of her mysteries have to do with theaters.

The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery

This is a book that I always enjoy, and I know that I have mentioned it on my blog multiple times, but it was one of my favorite books I read this May.

It is about a twenty-nine year old woman who has never done anything exciting, and then she learns that she has a fatal heart disease and only has a year to live. It is about her making the most of that one year and having an adventure.


So, that wraps up my overview of what happened to me while I disappeared. I plan on posting again this coming Tuesday (part of the reason that I am saying that is for accountability).

How has your month been going? Are you planning on doing Camp NaNoWriMo?
