My February is basically ‘Challenge Month’

Last month I posted my list of goals for the year and there were only six things on that list: read 3 books a month, write in my Q&A A Day For Writers journal, practice yoga, play ultimate, eat healthy and learn about chakras, meditation, etc.

These “goals” were more like “things I want to do this year” and I wanted to be pretty chill about them because I didn’t want to pressure myself. Anyway, a month into the new year I realized that some of these goals will really have to take a backseat if I focus on one or two because that’s exactly what happened.

Bookish Spotlight: Rarity From The Hollow by Robert Eggleton

Last year we featured the book Rarity from the Hollow, a unique science fiction novel  by author Robert Eggleton. The new edition was just released recently so we’re featuring it again!

I find this book really intriguing but I have yet to read it (I haven’t been reading this month gah!). According to the author the book is “not hard science fiction and includes elements of fantasy, everyday horror, a ghost – so it’s a little paranormal, true-love type romance, mystery, and adventure.” The book also addresses social issues like child abuse, domestic violence, poverty, mental health, as well as local and intergalactic economics.

Anyway, please read on to know more about the book and support this author!

Hey, 2017! Yayyy.

Hey, folks! Here we are again, aren’t we? It’s the start of another year and I’m sure most of us are just bursting with plans and goals.

Aaaand just like that it’s November. And we know what that means – it’s NaNoWriMo once again. Yep.

NaNoWrimo or National Novel Writing Month is when people attempt to write and finish a novel for the entire month of November. Well, the goal is to write a novel of at least 50,000 words.
