Memo Pad: February Book Wrap-up

Another month down and another lot of books read. 5 this month, to be precise. I set myself the goal last month of finishing the Starship's Mage series this month which was the final three books. And I'm happy to say I managed it and they were amazing! Seriously, one of the best series I've… Continue reading Memo Pad: February Book Wrap-up

Baby Leopards, Pretty Stationery and Finished 1st Drafts

I finished writing the first draft of my fantasy story! Happy Dance time! I celebrated with the age old - lets eat lots of yummy food - method. Chinese takeaway, ice cream and, okay, I had other desserts too! This post is literally just me patting myself on the back and explaining this is why… Continue reading Baby Leopards, Pretty Stationery and Finished 1st Drafts

Book Haul + Love Papercut

This blog has been leaning heavily towards the Bookish side lately and that's purely because I really hadn't been doing much crafty stuff. Between Christmas, being ill for the first two weeks of the year and stuffing as much writing time in as possible I just haven't been crafting. That is changing though and I'll… Continue reading Book Haul + Love Papercut

Memo Pad: January Book Wrap Up

Another Bookish month has passed for me to tell you about! Has anyone gotten used to writing 2018 yet? I'm still getting it wrong. I'm still right smack bang in the middle of my kindle unlimited 3 month trial which means the only books I've read this month (and will be reading next month) are… Continue reading Memo Pad: January Book Wrap Up

I think (I really should keep better track of which books I've DNF'd but I don't count then in my… Continue reading Top Ten Best Books of 2017

Right at the… Continue reading Memo Pad: December Books

NaNoWriMo – How Did I Do?

Nanowrimo is over! I can finally get back to life! Okay, so I actually stopped with about five days left so I've been back to real life for almost a week now but it's so weird waking up and having to decide what to do today rather than just - write! So how did my… Continue reading NaNoWriMo – How Did I Do?

NaNoWriMo Here We Come

I actually can't believe its nanowrimo time again. For those of you who don't know, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month where people sign up and attempt to write 50k in the month of November. I am actually very well prepared this year but I still feel like I was only writing my last nanowrimo… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Here We Come

Memo pad: September Books

It's the end of another month and that means its time to let you know what I've been reading. I've had a pretty good month finishing four books one of which was massive! (I'm looking at you Lady Midnight). Unfortunately I did DNF another book and if you read my last bookish post then you'll… Continue reading Memo pad: September Books

Life Continues

There are a lot of smaller things going on right now. I might have had an update on my quilt to post if I hadn't been spending most of my time working on a super secret project for my friends birthday next month. And as super secret projects go, I can't share it with you… Continue reading Life Continues
