Hello My Scripturients,
A year ago today I decided to peruse a goal that I had been wanting to do for quite a while. As you may have guessed at this point I absolutely love books. They have been vessels for my happiness for such a long time that I wanted to shout my love from the roof tops.
Writing and filming these reviews and writing updates has defiantly been a learning curve for me. I haven't had the most eloquent reviews to start with but I am working on it. And will continue to work on it in the next few months. Down below I am going to be talk about updates to my posting schedule ect.
Now a year later I have a little bubble of friends. I have had interactions with best selling authors traditional and indie, small booktubers, and readers and writes alike. We share our love for books across many platforms. This community that I have become a part of is so kind and so encouraging. Everyone is so inspiring and I find it incredibly encouraging to hear, and see how people are doing in their own writing projects.
This has helped me a lot this year. Particularly this semester when I have been felling down on myself. You all keep me in check and don't even realize it. Just by clicking on the link to get to this blog post you are holding me accountable for the things that I say I am going to do. This little bit of structure helps to keep me on track and keep me feeling happy and healthy.
So officially, next Wednesday December 13th my Senior Thesis is due at noon and after that I will have finished my degree. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH Okay got that out of my system haha. That has pretty much been my internal monologue since mid- November.
So if you have finished your degree Katelyn what does that mean for your blog?
I am glad you asked. It means I will have a lot more time for you all! I am working on a day job, and I will be working a show, but I plan on spending a lot of time writing for this blog, reading for reviews, filming videos and, writing my books. (Wednesday is going to be all about this with a NaNoWriMo update and book plotting session) And of course you will get to hear all about all of those things. Why else have this place I can shoot nonsense into the void from?
You may know that I have a youtube channel where I also post reviews and updates on my reading and writing projects. I think that both platforms are invaluable as a reader/ writer working to improve my reading and writing skills now that I am going to be out of school. As such I am going to use them as a pair. I am going to try to have a video for each review, a blog post for each wrap up, ect. I have been sticking to a Monday, Wednesday schedule over there so I am going to go for that here. So Writing Wednesday, and Fiction Fridays are back, being joined by Monday Musings. A series of blog posts on things in the publishing world that have intrigued me or really any random thing I wanna talk to you about.
I am thinking of starting a monthly newsletter. What do you think? Let me know on one of my socials what you think and what sort of things you like from other newsletters.
So I got caught up in work and now am writing this blog post at 1 am. I can't tell if it even makes sense. I am sure I am missing things. If so check out my twitter for any updates after posting.
