By the time this post goes up, I’ll be finishing up my last exam of the school year. That means summer, and summer means writing! I have a lot of goals for this summer that I wanted to share, so here we go!
I haven’t drafted anything new at all this year. I’ve done some brainstorming for ‘Summer Novel’ for the past few months, but my priority has been finishing the school year strong. But since school is out *breaks into High School Musical* I can now make writing my priority. June will be focused on outlining and further brainstorming, and then in July I’ll be participating in Camp Nanowrimo. I’ve done July Camp Nanowrimo for the past three years so it’s a summer tradition for me. My goal is to finish the first draft of ‘Summer Novel’ before the end of August.
I’m currently 4 books behind on my Goodreads goal, which all things considered isn’t that bad for me. Last year I completed my Goodreads goal of reading 100 books in 2016. This year I lowered my goal to 75 books, mostly because of school. So I’m planning to catch up and do a lot of reading and book reviewing. If you all have any book suggestions, be sure to leave them in the comments!
I’m going to keep posting every Monday and Thursday during the summer. I’m also going to try to participate in more book and writing tags, and just continue to immerse myself in the community.
I’m planning on revamping my Bookstagram. It’s fallen a bit by the wayside because it’s not possible for me to post every day due to school. I’m going to try to post more consistently and immerse myself more in the Bookstagram community as well.
- BULLET JOURNALING
I’m slightly obsessed with bullet journaling, and I really want to start trying it this summer. I think the system has to the potential to help with my organization, especially for next school year. Plus, it just looks extremely fun so I’m going to give it a try.
- LIFE STUFF
And of course, even though school is over there are still school related things that I need to do. Job stuff, driving stuff, standardized testing stuff. Not much fun compared to writing and reading, but still important things that I need to get done during the summer.
Overall, I’m super excited to start working towards my goals.

Have a wonderful day!
