Monthly Summary: September 2018

I felt like September was a month of mostly waiting. I'm yearning for the cool weather of fall to come but it's still hot. XD The month still had its highlights though!

What I did:

1.) I hit 20,000 words in rewriting Silver Hood!

2.) The month was not off to a good start since some dumb-dumb backed into my car in the parking lot hard enough to screw up my bumper and my tire (I was fine. I wasn't even in my car.), so half of the month was waiting for it to be fixed. But my baby is back now and all was covered by insurance.

On better news, I went to Anime Weekend Atlanta! My full report was yesterday. I got to meet seven great voice actors and have some amazing Japanese food truck food. ^ ^

I really needed more bookshelves in my room so my roommate and I found some shelves that someone was giving away and DIYed some into new bookshelves! I'm happy to be able to show off my books and POP collection better. XD

I attended my first ever Chinese Moon Festival at Atlanta Chinatown! It was super cool! I got to see some traditional Chinese dancing and I got some yummy non-Americanized Chinese food.

3.) I finished King's War and Empire of Storms! Reviews will be up as soon as I can!

4.) I actually did not have a chance to do a drawing this month. Sadness. :(

5.) My piece about the Handmaid's Tale went up on Geekdom House!

The Geeky Department:

1.) My mind is so freaking blown about AoT. So many answers have been given FINALLY!

2.) I'm still loving My Hero Academia

3.) Everyone is screaming about Voltron and I'm working on getting into it, but I've only finished the pilot so far. XD

4.) I got some unexpected funds due to my car accident so I decided to turn it into a blessing and I just forked over the cash and got a Wii Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I've been wanting to get a new game system for years (I still have the original DS and Wii) and I decided to just do it. And I'm loving the Breath of the Wild. The game is gorgeous. It's like Skyrim and Skyward Sword had a baby. XD

5.) I've got some new Pokemon in Pokemon GO! Shelgon, Entei, Lapras (FINALLY), Spinda, and Chansey (FINALLY)! I'm only three pokemon from finishing my Kanto deck. ^ ^

What I'm Going to Do:

1.) I don't know if I'll finish Silver Hood, but I want to get at least the majority of the book written. I get most of my writing done in the fall and spring, so I'm hoping to get some great progress. The temperate weather gets me in the writing mood. I also am going to get Black Hood outlined for NaNoWriMo!

2.) I'm going to the Georgia National Fair with a friend! I haven't been in two years and I miss it. XD I'm also hoping to do a plethora of other fall things!

3.) I'm starting Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel and War Storm by Victoria Aveyard!

4.) I'd like to at least do one drawing next month. Probably of a character from Black Hood. ;) 

5.) I have a piece about season three of Attack on Titan coming up!

October 23: So Your Character Announcement - After two years I'm out of So Your Character posts.
