Last month I was so focused on all things I didn’t do or failed at that I forgot to mention that few things I did succeed with. Like how I sucessfully finished reading the Fruits Basket series. I’ve also started re-reading the Immortals After Dark series, it’s a trashy urban fantasy/paranormal romance series that’s kinda problematic in places, but it’s low-stakes mindless escapism.
As I struggle with Daily Journaling, I’ve been using my Hobonichi Techno Journal as a place to write down reading collections, and I’ve managed to write down the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and Discworld series. I am a big fan of checklists and having a series checklist makes me less overwhelmed and anxious.
Monthly Goals for Writing:
Write a minimum of (4 x regular blog-posts) + (2 x Book Reviews) for the month – Goal Accomplished:
This quarter I shall attempt not to overwhelm readers with continuous blog-posts about Stationery. This quarter I’m hoping to focus more on my Stim Toy Review posts and I’m starting to feel as though I’m getting back into the swing of things. Although, now that I’ve said that, something will happen to ruin it, I’m sure of it.
Write 2 x Book Reviews per month – Goal Accomplished:
~Book Review: Giant Days – Volume 9 by John Allison
~Book Review: Giant Days – Volume 10 by John Allison

As my partner is doing a lot of renovations to the house at the moment, I’m going to give myself a pass of making videos and podcasting, at least until I can my home office set up.
