February 2020: Life & Writing Update

Good evening friends. I’m at my parents house as I write this blog post. My Mom is hard at work so I’m keeping her company in her fiber studio. Tonight she is working with her circular knitting machine. Next week she will be selling at a craft show in Harrisburg and so she is working on making fingerless mitts to sell there.

Pretty exciting, huh? Meanwhile I am sitting in a chair off to the side, working on my laptop. I have blog posts to write and books to review and youtube videos to edit. But before I do those things, I need to review the month. So let’s get started!


This has been a very good month for me. I’ve really been focusing on getting things done every day of the week for my creative business. Some days are better than others, of course, but I’ve decided to start using my bullet journal again and I’ve been filming a Plan With Me video every week to share some of my goals and things that I want to accomplish in my day to day life.

If you missed it, here are my past few videos:

  • Plan With Me: Feb 10 - Feb 16 | Valentine's Day
  • Plan With Me: Feb 17 - Feb 22 | How I Plan My Week As A Writer
  • Plan With Me Feb 24 - March 1: Bullet Journal | Bringing my Bullet Journal Back

Life

Valentine’s Day was very special this year as I have a boyfriend who I began dating last Summer! We celebrated on the 15th and he cooked me a delicious dinner and we spent the evening together. He even got me flowers, which made me feel very special. I told him this in his card, but I feel lucky every day that I met him!

Writing

Writing has been going well. I’m tracking all of my writing in a spreadsheet so that I can look back at the end of the year and see what I accomplished. I’ve been working on a couple of different fiction projects which has kept me very busy. I’ve been averaging 15,000 new words written a month, but I’m hoping to kick it up a notch in March. We’ll see what happens! I also need to prep my Camp NaNoWriMo project for April.

Reading

I’ve been listening to more audiobooks this month which means that I have quite a few upcoming book reviews to share here on the blog. This month I read:

  • Hidden Bodies
  • Dear Life
  • Front Desk
  • Girl at Heart
  • Loving Mr. Daniels

I’m looking forward to reading even more next month!

Goals For Next Month


  • Write 25,000 words
  • Read (or listen) to 6 books
  • Post more to Youtube
  • Finish setting up my website

What are your goals for March? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,
Marian
