A Happy New Year and My Writing Plans for January 2019

Happy New Year! *throws confetti* I hope that everyone had a wonderful festive season and also had some time to rest before the new year started!

My vacation of ten days flew by so fast! I really enjoyed it, though, and can actually tell that I rested a bit, which is good. I was really so exhausted by the end of last year that I really needed the time off.

(Kind of) new to the blog this year

Like I hinted in some previous posts, I’m making changes to the blog this year (to make it better!) and these changes include doing more book reviews and as-I-read thoughts – without spoilers, more flash fiction, creative non-fiction and bringing back the weekly finds and folklore/mythology days.

Plans for the 2019 NaNoWriMos

I’m planning on taking part in both Camp NaNoWriMos and November’s NaNoWriMo. Writing exactly what I am not yet sure, but it will probably have to do with either Porselein or The Ruon Chronicles.

January writing plans

Focusing on January, I’ll be working on Jozi Flash 2017 and Porselein (along with some articles and flash pieces!). I will also have a guest post with Rachel Poli later this month.

And a toast to JRR Tolkien, whose birthday would’ve been today…
