Did anyone else just have a Titanic flashback, or was it just me? No? Alright, moving swiftly on…
It’s been quite some time since I last blogged. Sorry about that, life’s been pretty hectic over these past few months and I just haven’t had the time/energy. The good news is though, that while I haven’t been writing on here, I have been writing! Lots and lots of (rough) words! Which is always a bonus. But as the New Year strolls ever closer and I start to think about resolutions, my thoughts also turn to this blog. The truth is, I’ve missed blogging and I really want to get back into it.
So here it is, in black and white, my resolution to blog more in 2015 (which, let’s face it, shouldn’t be all that difficult compares to this year). I’m gong to be aiming for twice a week, but hopefully more if I can manage it.
And here’s a few of the things you can expect to see here in the foreseeable future!
THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF THE GREAT TBR CHALLENGE:
I did quite well on this but I’ll admit I’ve slipped these past few months and my TBR pile is currently threatening to crush me to death during an inevitable book avalanche. Therefore, at the beginning of every month I’ll be posting a short list of books (probably 4-6) that I’d like to knock off my TBR pile, and then at the end I’ll be doing a brief wrap up post about the books that I actually managed to read.
FIVE REASONS YOU SHOULD READ:
If I read a book that I really love then I want to tell you about it! These posts won’t be happening for every book I read, only the very best! And I may or may not follow these up with a recommended reads post as well.
THE ‘MY WRITING PROCESS’ SERIES:
Since I’ve just started a new project, I thought I’d also start writing a series of blog posts detailing the stages of agony (did I say agony, I meant joy!) of writing a book. I’ll start off with the prep/outlining phase, work my way through the first draft, and then hopefully go through my stages of editing (hopefully I’ll get that far!) with you guys.
TRAVEL/DAY IN THE LIFE KIND OF THINGS:
I’ve spent the majority of 2014 living a somewhat hermit existence, practically spending my life split between work and my flat, so next year I want to try and get out more! I want to go places that I’ve never been and re-visit old, familiar places and memories. I thought you might want to take some of these trips with me.
The lovely Cole suggested I do some more posts about the notebooks I make, and I’m more than happy to oblige! If I can, I’ll try and construct some tutorials as well, for anyone who might want to try bookbinding for themselves!
Of course, I’m sure various other things will crop up throughout the year, and if you have any suggestions for things you’d like to see please so share in the comments!
I’m really looking forward to 2015 and I hope you are too.
