Reading Resolutions

Hello 2020! 

Let’s welcome the new year the way most people do- with great resolutions! It is the time to reflect on the previous year and see where you want to take the new year. Here are literary themed resolutions that you can start in 2020: 

  1. Listen to more audiobooks.

Take a break from your average reading time and pop in an audiobook. It gives you the opportunity to multitask. Listen to your book at the gym, in the car or while you cook!

  1. Take notes while you read.

Expand your mind and think about what you’re reading. Write down your thoughts or quotes. Then you can come back and read your notes later!

  1. Read books on your reading list or create a reading list.

Lists are beautiful! It gives you a reminder of what you want and something to look forward to. If you’re like me, you need a list or else you will forget what you even wanted to read in the first place.

  1. Write more book reviews.

Did you love it or dislike it? Either way write a thoughtful book review to give other people a look inside the book.

  1. Try a different genre.

I know trying new things can be scary, but you might like it! Go outside your comfort zone of historical romance and try a new mystery!

Modify the resolutions to fit you! It always helps to write them down and keep it in a spot that you can use as a daily reminder. 

Happy New Year!

Everything You Need to Know – National Novel Writing Month

A few days ago I was seeing NaNoWriMo everywhere and had no idea what it meant. However, after realizing that it stands for (National Novel Writing Month), it now makes sense as to why I saw it a few days ago and why authors and writers were the ones using the term. 

Now I just needed to do more research on what was actually going on around here! And behold, Nanowrimo.org A beacon for all things related to the nonprofit. It is such a wonderful organization that I had no clue existed. It gives support to thousands of writers to share their words and express their love of writing world wide. They have created such an impact and run year-round amazing programs. They truly have become internet famous, in their belief that every story matters. 

Your stories do matter and now I encourage you to write in the spirit of NaNoWriMo! If you did not know about this organization check out their very insightful website where you can also donate to help support. 

NaNoWriMo entails writers to write 50,000 words in the month of November (around 1,667 words per day). It also has to be a novel. See how far you can go, take the pledge!

You’re already six days in!
