February Highlights // 2016

Monday, February 29, 2016
HAPPY LEAP DAY! *leaps* *or is just completely lazy, heh* 

February was busy. And also it wasn't. I was at home for most of the time, but I was busy with all things blogging, editing, and reading. THIS WAS MY LIFE THIS MONTH:

More on the month below.

-
APPARENTLY IT WAS NATIONAL PIZZA DAY ON FEBRUARY 9th! So it was obviously a very special day, but also kind of sad day, because I didn't have pizza.

I actually went THREE WHOLE WEEKS without eating pizza. o.o (It's practically a crime. I feel faint just talking about it. *flops*) My Church held a month long fast (except I did it for three weeks. Sigh.) and since I didn't think giving up internet, blogging, or writing was the best idea, the next obvious choice was... pizza.

But I survived and here's a picture of me happily eating pizza AND hash browns. (Hash browns are my second favorite food. Did you know that? No? Now you do. :P)



I FINISHED LOST. ACK. THE ENDING. I cried so hard, but... it was amazing. So perfect. *happy flailing*

Family quotes: 
I also love Aimee's books a little too much. So much that I put her collage aesthetic thingys on my wall and I can now look at them every day. <3


-
SO MUCH READING THIS MONTH. o.o It just... never stopped. I'd finish a book, and I'd pick up a new one. I never stopped reading. I read seven more books than last month. My total count?



(Yes, I understand that there's only 20 books up there. I haven't read twenty-one books yet just because I'm posting this in the morning and I'll finish my last book tomorrow. :P)

Favorite: THE RECKONERS TRILOGY! (picture below.) I love this series so much. It's hilarious and epic and a series I will forever shove in people's face.

Disappointment: Six of Crows. Ack. There was so much hype for this book, but I just... I just couldn't. I DNFed it at around 30%.


Cover love: Curio or Blue Lily, Lily Blue. THEY'RE BOTH SO GORGEOUS. <3


I love Friday nights because then this can happen:
So now I'm up to 37 books for the year! READING IS JUST EXPLODING! :P
-
Writing was on and off this month. I'd edit. I'd complain about editing. I'd shun my novel. I'd beg for word wars from my writing friends. I'd get more editing done. REPEAT THE CYCLE again and again. :P

One good thing happened, though. I FINISHED MY FOURTH DRAFT! *collapses* I basically skimmed the last fifteen pages to see if there were any major rewriting spots, and then I just called it good. xD

Now I'm just handing off chapters to my critique partner, Abi. She's about 1/3 of the way done, and after all that, I'll have sign ups for beta readers at the end of March! *freaks out with excitement and nerves*


(And of course I'm still counting down the days to the writing conference in June.)

Elsewhere on the internet...

New blogs! :D My amazing writing buddy, Hannah(who I get to meet this summer at the conference, eek!), started a blog: Ink Blots and Coffee Stains.

Another one of my writing friends, Rosalie, is currently writing a serial story! It includes glow in the dark fish, lovely characters, and epic, epic worldbuilding. She has two parts posted so far -- read the first one here.

Hannah(different Hannah from above) has some lovely thoughts on when life gets stressful
-
NEXT MONTH IS AN EXCITING (and terrifying and exhausting. xD) MONTH. Because...

- A post about my novel... by my novel. (Yes, Tan is returning to the blog. If you don't know who Tan is... Well... Read this post by him. And good luck.)
- Beta readers. o.o
- MY BIRTHDAY! I'm turning sixteen. Eek. o.o
- I might do some tags. I HAVE SO MANY TAGS TO CATCH UP ON. I may just squish together a whole bunch of questions that are interesting. I'll probably do that on a surprise Tuesday.
- Someone wanted to see my whole novel writing process, so I'll be sharing that as well.

// Katie Grace

How's reading and writing going for you? What are your goals for March?
*leaps* ;)

  1. I've read 26 books so far this year, and plan on reading 100 throughout the rest of the year. Writing's...going...I've not been terribly good lately, putting off my editing, pretending it's not there...Y'know the feeling of dread as to what you might find in those pages? Not fun. :(

    1. Ooh, you totally are on track for 100! YOU CAN DO THIS! What are some of your favorite books you've read this year?

      Yup. I totally understand the feeling. It's so hard to face the dread of editing. But you can do it! :D

    2. I really liked the Lunar Chronicles (Marrissa Meyer), I've read the first two and I'm DYING to read Cress! Out of Darkness Rising (Gillian Bronte Adams) was another good one. The Hunger Games wasn't bad either, and I quite liked Many-Coloured Realm (Anne Hamilton)...I'll stop there before I list all the rest of the books I've read this year...XD Those ones were my favourites though.

  3. I...um...I'm four behind, but school got harder, so I'm working on books at night *cough* secretly, and watching a tv show with my mom when I can in the afternoon! Phew, I'm so busy. xD Writing is going really well, my critique partner and I are writing a book and we totally fangirl every time someone bad happens! My goal for March is to write a thousand a day, just because I need thirty thousand before Camp NaNo.

    2. Yeah...booklight out and I have to click it off anytime anyone breathes!

      It's a foreign show called Signal about people who solve cold cases, I was literally crying!

      It's a fantasy, I said I was never going to write another one again, but hey, the books control me!

    1. Ughhhh reading slumps are the WORST. I went through a 2-3 month period last year where I read like five books... total. -.- I wanted to read, but I just couldn't get into anything. Sometimes reading a light, fluffy contemporary helps or rereading one of your favorites.

      Thank YOU for reading! <3

  5. 21 books. I'd be jealous except that I had a really good writing month, so. Not jealous. (Also, how was Curio? Good? Not good?)
    Looking forward to the return of Tan . . . and yay for your birthday coming!

    1. I'd be jealous of your good writing month, except I read 21 books. So. Not jealous. ;)
      Curio was... eh. I rated it three stars. I was confused for a lot of the time, and there seemed no reason for worldbuiling. Not to mention that the book was heavily focused on appearance. Which, I mean, whatever. But for a Christian Fiction book I feel like the main character and other characters were too invested about how they looked, how other people looked (oh, look at those muscles! *swoon* -.-), and the look of general society. So, blah.

      So much excitement! :D

  7. I always feel like I read sufficiently until I read your posts. 21?! How do you live life and read that much?! I have 5 I'm in the middle of (my new bad habit) and 1 I finished . . . Then there's like 12 calling to me from my shelf :P

    And happy early birthday!!! Feel free to dump me with chapters. I can totally finish by the end of March if you want :D

    1. I don't know. o.o Believe me, I was not this fantastic at reading last year. Heh, I'm TRYING to keep myself to a minimum of two books at a time. One school book and one fun book. So far I've kept it up, but we'll see if I can continue that...

      THANK YOU! :D And I shall totally do that. I'm glad you're up to working with me. xD (and dump me with chapters. I want to read more. o.o) I plan on binge-editing chapters tonight so hopefully I'll have the next one for you by tonight. :D

  9. Katie, I just recently found your blog and love it!
    I am in such a reading slump! I hate it! What did you think of Dangerous, Mark of the Thief, and the Winner's Curse? I've read those three. I was super disappointed by Dangerous. Mark of the Thief was okay but not as good as the Ascendance trilogy. And I really liked The Winner's Curse, but now I'm not really sure if I like it.

    1. Eeep, thank you! <3

      Dangerous was a hugedisappointment. I LOVE Shannon Hale's books, but this one just... was... well, terrible. :P Maybe she needs to stick to fantasy, cause I couldn't take anything in that book seriously.

      I rated Mark of the Thief and the Winner's Curse both three stars. I liked parts, but then... I didn't. :P I couldn't really ship the two characters in The Winner's Curse, and if I can't ship the characters when the romance is a huge part of the book, I'm automatically docking a star.

  10. HAPPY LEAP DAY! <3

    YOU READ 21 BOOKS?!? Goodness, how? And aren't those Brandon Sanderson things super long? I've never read them, but I've heard about how long they can be.

    I read the Five Enchanted Roses collection and really liked it. I also started Water Princes, Fire Prince by Kendra E. Ardnek. THAT'S ALL. You are a super-reader. :D

    Tan is coming back! *throws confetti into the air* Despite his rather blunt, sarcastic attitude, I'm really looking forward to this! AND YOU'RE POSTING ABOUT YOUR NOVEL WRITING PROCESS. O.O I CANNOT WAIT for that post. :D

    I hope editing goes really well. :)

    2. THANK YOU, EMILY! Happy Leap Day to you, too! <3

      I KNOW. o.o I try to read for at least a half an hour each day and then I usually read two books over the weekend. :D
      Brandon Sanderson's ADULT books are, like, over a thousand pages long. But his YA ones are the size of normal books. (300-400 pages.) So they didn't take me too long to finish.

      Ack, I REALLY want to read the Five Enchanted Roses collection! I want to get it in paperback, but it's seventeen dollars, which is kind of a lot of money... So maybe in a few years it'll go down in price and I can buy it.

      Ooh, how are you liking Water Princess, Fire Prince? I've heard good things about that one. I have it on my Kindle app but the size of the book is daunting. :P

      YES! HE'S COMING BACK! He couldn't be more thrilled. I couldn't be more terrified. :P I may have to intervene more than last time so it doesn't get out of control... :P

      I'm excited to write the novel process post! Hopefully it will prove to be interesting. :D

      Delete
    3. Ahh, I see, his adult books are the long ones.

      Yes, Five Enchanted Roses is very expensive. I got it on kindle, which was only four dollars. I like paperback books so much more, but man, they can cost a lot. :P

      I'm not very far into WPFP, but so far, so good. :D

      So excited for the return of Tan, your novel process post, and BETA-READING. :)

  11. Hi Katie! I've been one of those terrible silent stalkers for a few months now. Sorry about that. :) Your blog never fails to bring a smile to my face, even in the midst of a hard day!

    I am looking forward to hearing more about this novel of yours. And wow--21 books? That's impressive. I thought I was was doing good at 7 books this month. :/

    I am (vainly) trying to keep myself from writing so I can focus my efforts on editing. :( I need to finish editing by the end of March so I have time to participate in a 50,000 word NaNo in April. Writing is SO much more fun than editing.

    Good luck with your own editing!

    1. Hey, Ivy! (I love your name. It's so pretty.) I'm so glad you commented! Your words makes me soooo happy and brought a smile to my face. :D

      I know. o.o I'm not sure how it happened. And, hey! 21 is still awesome. When I was doing NaNoWriMo last year I only read ONE book. So I understand the feeling. :P

      Eek, You're doing Camp NaNo, too? I haven't quite decided what I'm doing yet. I may write a Little Red Riding Hood retelling or start editing the sequel to Song of the Desert. We'll see.

      Thank you! YOU GOT THIS EDITING!

  12. So close to youuuuu! I've read 34 books so far this year. It really doesnt feel like I read a book every other day...lol. ;)

    Eeeek! 16! Yayyyyy!

    YAY FOR FINISHING YOUR 4th DRAFT. YAY.

    P.S. Any tips for rewrites? I'm seriously stuck on this one thing, I can't describe mountain terrain, seriously. I've never seen real mountains (sometimes I don't believe they exist) and I just have make the mountains big enough to be realistically trying..ugh. Serously. Any tips? ;P

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh my gosh, you're catching up to me! *read faster* ;) But seriously. 34 is amazing. o.o

      REWRITES GACK. I despise rewrites so much. More than editing. More than plotting. More than pizza with olives on top. Rewriting you kinda just have to push through and try to convince your mind that you're excited about this project. :P I might write up a post on this soon. *nod*

      The mountains... I guess you can always research? It depends on how big of mountains you're making them. If it's Everest size, you can watch Everest movies and books. You can look up pictures online and research mountain articles. I've had to struggle through this with my desert novel... I've never been in a desert. But I've had to push through it with research and such. :P

    2. hahahaa, it's hilarious. Because I read 17 books in Jan. and 17 books in Feb. :D I keep track of the amount of pages I read as well. lol!

      Well, thankssss. :P I think. lol! Myself, I mostly have to force myself into it. It's painful. :P I get so messed up because I write on my alphasmart, which needs to be downloaded. And I'm always changing stuff. My grandpa is going to give me his computer he is getting rid of, so I'm going to be using that for my writing soon. Hopefully that will help me, just to have one document that I can change anything at and time and not be stressed out about changing and moving stuff around. :D

      hahaaa, not quite Everest size. I got some mountain terrain photos to help me describe, I tried it before and my writing buddy said it was a little confusing. Gosh, that was probably hard if you have your whole book in the desert. ;P

      Gosh, btw, I'm so envious of your talent to come up with titles for books. Like, seriously. Love them.

  13. This post makes me happy! And GIRL, you can READ! With school and ballet, I've almost finished two books this year. I know, that makes me sad too. Someday I will read more, because I have a large to-read list.

    And the fourth draft! I'm proud of you for this! Get the editing done!

    Plus, thank-you so much for featuring my post!!!!!! THIS IS SUPER FUN!!!!

    Speaking of super fun, I also nominated you for an award, the Infinity Dreams Award. Pick which ever questions you like. THat's actually a good idea, so just choose some of the questions from each.

    Beta readers? Next month? Ooo ... hopefully it shall work out for me to be one of them :).

    You're going to be sixteen? That's SO cool! I'm turning sixteen this year, too :). When is your birthday?

    Writing is going ... well, slow. But reading is pretty good! I read ... uh ... I think it was about ten or eleven books this month. I've already got books lined up to read in March because I bought all seven of the books in the Narnia series. I am going to gobble those up very fast :D.

      Ooh, that's awesome! I'm hoping to reread the Narnia series sometime soon, here. I think the last time I read them was sometime in elementary school. o.o
      Hoping to see your name on the winner's list tomorrow... But even if you don't win, that's so awesome that you stuck with it and edited it and handed it in. It'll be fun to reread and look back on when you're older. :D

    2. My birthday is September 11th. So I'm about six months younger than you :).

      The last time I read all the Narnia books was ... I dunno, a long time ago. But then someone was selling a collection of all seven books for seven dollars, and I couldn't pass that up, so I bought them :D.

      I hope my name is on that list too! You have NO idea how excited I am (well, okay, maybe you do have some idea) for tomorrow :D. But yes, if I don't win I'll also be pleased that I carried through. I learned a lot. *nods*

    I'm insanely impressed by the amount that you've read. I've hardly gotten to read at all lately, it's frustrating. Just picked up a copy of All The Light We Cannot See, so hopefully I'll get to read that soon. Do you have some good book recommendations? I've been having trouble finding books haha.

    Hannah's post was so perfect:)

    HAPPY ALMOST BIRTHDAYYYYY!!!! *brings you pizza*

    YESYESYES you most definitely should do tags.

  21. i totally get the crazy. This month I have tech week for Aristocats. But, last Saturday I had my district history day, for this I performed a script I wrote over a woman who just finished traveling to Oregon. OMG it was super amazing. I was soooooo scared doing, but all the work I have put into it in the last probably five months was worth it. I succeeded, and now I'm preparing to go to state with it. The judges critique you and if you win you can have them give more comments. And the majority of what the one judge who was still there told me that I did amazing and the only thing I really need to work on is expression, but they all loved it. The best part is:they told me that they wanted to see me again in the next couple of years(like to come back and compete again). I didn't think they meant in the next couple of months!!!! Sooooooo excited. At the very beginning of April I have my last math competition, and in the same day I go to my very last TYP(Topeka Youth Players) meeting as a TYPer. I turn 14 April 18th, so hyped for that

  22. It's so funny because it seems that a lot of people are just crazy about pizza, but I never eat it anymore. I am lactose intolerant and also have problems with acid so it really is the totally wrong kind of food for me. Impressive that you were able to hold out for 3 weeks though! Does your Church usually do these kind of group fasts? Looks like you have also been quite productive with reading!

  24. DUDE OKAY SO the fact that you printed off Aimee's aesthetics is REALLY INSPIRING for some reason. Because I imagined you putting the aesthetic collages for /my/ characters on your wall and that's REALLY MOTIVATING SO YEAH.

  25. I read super fast too, so I never exactly set monthly goals, just yearly ones.
    Also, I nominated you for the Liebster Award, if you'd like to do it! :)

  26. Wow it sounds like a fun month! Congrats for sticking with your fast even though it was hard. But yay for pizza coming back! Yay for writing progress and happy early birthday! And for reading Curio. I loved it too. So much happy. ^ ^ I hope March is just as great.

    1. I know. o.o It was tough. :P
      I DONT KNOW. I just... read so much. But this month I've only read one book so far, so I probably won't read as much.
