SINCE I'VE BEEN GONE / wrap-up

18 November 2014

This is a wrap-up type post, not that I have anything to wrap up in my life (I can't afford the wrapping paper) but because it feels like ages since I have been present on this blog in a while. Yes I've had scheduled posts, but I haven't really interacted with anyone in a while. So here's a thing.
I've been busy: college, tests, revision (I am meant to do but don't really), NCS - National Citizen Service (search it because I'm too lazy to explain) and life. 
BRIEFLY, I'VE BEEN:
FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: AUTUMN IS PRESENT, BUT I AM ABSENT FROM ITS WONDERS (COLLEGE); THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER + TEA; MY DESK - ALWAYS MESSY; ARTWORK IS COMING OUT OF MY EARS.
I made an instagram, well, two; one personal, one bookish: and arty/crafty) so if you are into that kind of thing then fly on over - I want to see your photos never mind whether you want to see mine or not. 
WHAT ELSE HAS BEEN HAPPENING/NOT HAPPENING?
1) I still haven't read City of Heavenly Fire and the pain of denial is probably worse than the pain I will feel reading it. How do I know this? Because spoilers, I'm pretty sure nothing super bad happens although that could all be a web of lies; either way. I need that book. 2) I haven't been reading much at all, I think I've read two books that weren't re-reads in the last two months. BUT 3) I have been pinning away, usually of books/bookish graphics..sigh. 4) I found out I'm an oddball. Well, I found that out years ago but it seems as if everyone loved Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield - I have yet to pass the third chapter...
How has your life been panning out? Is it the shape of a frying pan, a sauce pan, or just a plain old tin pan? I want to know. Oh and who feels my dilemma; I need to write, I want to write, my WIPs have been neglected since I didn't think of a solid plot for them, everyone is doing NanoWrimo (or so it seems) yet here I am with a measly four thousand words under my belt after a good couple of months while SOME PEOPLE have written freaking 65,263 words in a week. I have no words. (Literally).

  1. My life is kind of like a frying pan that's started to melt. (Like, the edges are all squiggedly piggeldy). And I *think* I might be in a reading slump. :/

    YAY FOR US

    1. Yay for us indeed. That sucks. I'm in a reading slump (for new books) right now, re-reading all my favourites is nice though AND SAME. I think my frying pan has nearly melted though--

  2. Afterworlds is one of those books which takes a while to get into. I'm 150 pages in and it took me until about 100 pages before I felt it was somewhat readable.
    Hope life starts getting better soon!

  3. School is being really mean to me right now. It's gotten a lot better over the last week or so, but apparently all my teachers decided to come together and all give projects and tests in the same couple of weeks. So.

    Good luck!
