If you’re new here (HI!!!!!), I should probably explain what in the world this recurring series is. 😉 Three years ago (today), I posted about how full my “plate” was, complete with a hilariously bad picture of me with a literal plate. Since then, I’ve been using the title “Plate Update” for a monthly check-in with my readers where I report what I’ve been doing, reading, researching… etc. 😉
Last month’s full plate was actually a bowl of celebratory ice cream. 😉 *waves to June* (You were awesome, by the way, June.) Look, it’s July! We’re officially halfway through this year! 😀
Anyway, here’s a quick update on my full plate last month. 😉
Read for review:
Mostly EMAAAAIIILLSSS (I had no idea how many it takes to set up a blog tour!)
Author and character interviews
Books on Murph’s shelf in Interstellar 😀 😀
Percentage of an Amazon book sample
Little Women 2017 ❤
Age differences between the March sisters
How to format texting in a book
Guest posts for the blog tour 😉
Book reviews (I’m still catching up XD)
Keywords on Amazon listings for my book (you have no idea how hard this is)
“Kiera” for the final time!! 😀
Enjoyed Little Women (2017) with my own Marmee and sisters ❤
Brainstormed character details with a friend (#newstory)
Coordinated an entire blog tour and released my book *collapses*
Laughed my head off over Incredibles 2
Sewed some ❤
Gave wagon rides to incredibly heavy nephews
I also drew dragon battles and daring water rescues for my nephew's on a write-on wipe-off board. 😉 I also watched my dad set off the world's absolute best firework, was encouraged and convicted by the movie "The Man Who Invented Christmas" (and laughed some too 😉 ), and dove headfirst into the "Thunderbirds Are Go" (reboot) fandom.
This next month, I’m looking forward (maybe) catching up on book reviews, continuing my summer reading, and participating in a book booth with the Generation Rising team at the homeschool convention. 😉 Also, more fireworks.
How was your June? What are you looking forward to this month?
