Hello Readers!

So first off, I want to apologize for my lack of posts this last week (and even just lately on a whole) I want to just say that things might be a little slow around here for a while, as finals are in a couple weeks and therefore a lot of my free time is now being used for studying purposes. Then I am free for the summer! Freeeeeeeeeee!

*cough cough* Anyways. On with the post in which I share all the lovely things that went on this last month! Yay!

excited

 

New Things!

So, as some of you might have noticed, I have something floating around my blog called ‘Spotlight Saturday’ and so far, it’s going very well! I’ve put up 5 posts so far and have about 6 more lined up at the moment with a few more coming in. Now, what is Spotlight Saturday?

Well, It’s a linkup where I interview other bloggers, asking them about their blog, and every Saturday I will post that interview. The purpose behind this is to be able to spread the word about some amazing blogs you may or may not have read before therefore helping you discover new blogs to read and meet other amazing people!

Interested in being interviewed for this? Know someone who will? Send me an email from the contact form on my Contact Page ( <– Click there ) and I will get back to you with the questions and the day your post will be up on the blog!

 

Book Reviews

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven —> Quick little fangirl moment for me, but I posted the link to said review on my Twitter and Jennifer Niven retweeted the link to my book review and I’m kinda excited about that, okay?

How Did My Writing Go?

My writing the last month had been basically non-existent but, I am working on getting going on that once more (Summer, I love you) When summer comes around, I  will be working on a bunch of writing stuff. BUT The question is how my writing went in the month of May, So I will answer that.

Twitter

Despite not being able to write much I did make a lot of headway on More At Home With Stangers. What was that headway made? Well, I completed Part 1 of MAHWS yesterday and fully outlined Part 2. Consdiering I have the third and final part mostly written I only expect another 30k or so. So, over all. Things went quite well.

How Was Life?

Life these last couple weeks has been absolutely glorious! Busy mind you, but still just SO amazing! For example: These last couple weeks, I’ve been prepping for my 18th Birthday and sort of rebelling my being an adult in what is now two days.

Another thing was: On May 22 to the 24th, I was able to go to such a wonderful Youth Conference known as YC where I not only fullfiled a childhood dream, heard many many speakers and bands, but I got to meet up with a friend of mine from school. A great kickoff for the summer of 2015 I must say!

What’s the Plan for June?

June still holds a lot of busy stuff for me relating to school for the first couple weeks, meaning book reviews and writing posts might be a tad bit scarce for the first couple weeks, but I still have some fun things ahead!

List

1st thing! (Which is quite important)

Summer Approaches Post <– If you want a say in what appears on my blog this summer you might wanna jump on over to that post and fill in a tiny little survey I set up. I want to know what you lovely people want to see this summer on The Librarian Files and for that to happen you need to tell me! You can do so by clicking the link above.

 

2nd thing!

Kinda adding to the first thing…I will be editing my novel ‘Lucy’ through the summer in which I will be sharing my editing process with you lovely readers aaaaaand maybe be on the look out for some Beta Readers 😉

 

3rd thing!

I’m assiting a lovely author named Rachelle Rea with the blog tour for her book. You do not want to miss both posts I’ll be doing which will be here, on the blog, on Wednesday, June 3rd and Monday, June 15th.

How Did My Writing Go?

I sadly didn’t get as much writing and editing done as I had hoped. What little time I had this past month was used for researching for my upcoming CampNaNo novel, writing book reviews and also Uploading chapters of my WIP Aimlessly Wandering to Wattpad. ( It’s still in the first draft at the moment but I’ve put it up anyways 😛 ) So far my National Novel Writing Year plan has kinda gone down the drain a bit but not all hope is lost! I’m coming up on the end of Aimlessly Wandering and have completed two short stories. That’s almost 3 projects done! and if everything goes according to plan ‘More At Home With Strangers’ will be completed by the end of April and I will use the next couple months (Up until the next Camp NaNo to finish up a few of these half finished drafts that kinda got abandoned in the process of new ideas revealing themselves)

 

How Was Life?

Life was crazy busy for me this month with things like, Volunteering at my churches 75th Anniversary dinner (In which I was waitressing), going to Youth Group, being sick constantly, lots of homework, celebrating birthdays and trying to keep up with my blogging. (You have to admit I’ve been doing pretty good…*nervous chuckle* Right?)

 

What’s the Plan for April? (On the blog)

The plan for April is to use Spring Break to my advantage and write like a crazy chicken (<–This lady at my church says that and I’m picking it up….Oopsie) and try and get a lot of my novel done….Working around road trips to visit family and meeting up with my besties for coffee and such. What does that mean for the blog? Well there may be a shortage of book reviews but there will be Character Interviews, Novel Updates, Quotes and Scenes from my NaNo novel and fun stuff like inspiration/music for my novel! Fun stuff, let me tell you 😀  (I do promise to do my best to keep on top of Top Ten Tuesday Posts and book reviews too 😀 )

Oh! And did I mention its my blog birthday next month? I’m still not sure what I’m going to be doing for that but I better figure that out fast considering April 24th is gonna sneak up on me really quickly…

 

 

So, thats been the month of March for me and the lovely little blog! Thank you all to my lovely followers! You guys are amazing ❤

 

Until Next Time,
