July was a whirlwind of a month! I went out of town twice, which was tiring but super fun! :D
What I did:
1.) I've started rewriting Silver Hood! I'm 6K in and the words are flowing so well!
I'm also trying to really focus on Instagram since I've been advised that that's the social media platform I need to be on as a writer. I'm trying to post six days a week about traveling, geekery, and writing with my traveling buddy Little Inukshuk. I'd love it if you'd give me a follow! I'm @travelingtori_12!
2.) I went to St. Augustine and St. Louis this month! All the saints. XD
I spent St. Augustine with my mom and my aunts and uncles. We got to go to the beach twice, explore downtown St. Augustine, eat seafood, and see some amazing fireworks!
I also went to Realm Makers and had an amazing time! I got to meet a bunch of you readers and it was so lovely to see you in person!
I've also had some stresses with work so that's not been fun. I mention this stuff because I want you to know I'm a human and I have problems too. It's not all fun and games in the life of Victoria. I has problems just like you do.
3.) I finished reading Game of Lives by James Dashner and I'm almost finished with the Black Prism by Brent Weeks. It's a long book lol.
4.) I've managed to finish some of my new website graphics!
|I'll be rating books by numbers of Inukshuks from here on out!|
|This is the Icelandic compass Vegvisir. I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do with this but I'll think of something.|
5.) Not articles up this month! Too busy. XD
The Geeky Department:
1.) I finished Attack on Titan season three. OMG! This may be my favorite season yet. I can't believe the last season is coming out in Fall 2020!
2.) This season of Handmaid's Tale kinda ambled a bit, but it's finally coming to a good point and I like that.
3.) I finished Kingdom Hearts III! Squee! But so many more questions! And I've started Shadow of the Colossus!
4.) I've also been watching Fruits Basket 2019 and I'm really loving this new version! It's the same story and same voice actors, but the quality and drama have been ramped up. What's not to like?
5.) I've also evolved and caught a bunch of new Pokemon!
What I'm Going to Do:
1.) I'd like to get at least 20K words written in Silver Hood in August.
2.) I'm visiting Lyssa again, but other than that I have no plans lol.
3.) I want to finish The Black Prism and The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber and at least start The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger by Stephen King.
4.) I want to finish more blog graphics!
5.) That I Am Mother piece should finally be up on Think Christian!
