Plate Update: Space, Brownies, and Monsoon Season

August was a good, FULL month, and even though it’s still two weeks until autumn officially begins, I fell like that was the summer “season” finale. XD (Here’s hoping!)

Last month’s full plate was piled with movie popcorn. 😉

Here’s an update on my full plate…

Pleasure read:

The Pioneer (three stars, excellent sci-fi worldbuilding)

Outcast (family read-aloud for homeschool history class)

Auggie and Me (four stars)

A-Spying We Will Go (five stars)

Once Upon a Dime (five stars)

Penguin Days (four stars)

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey (four stars)

Answered:

Emails and texts

Author questions on Goodreads

Wrote:

8,225 words on “Sincerely, Jem” (originally “Love, Jem”) finishing out draft one!!

Meeting minutes for my transcription job

Book reviews

A newsletter

Blog posts (the top five being Do I Have That Book? Challenge; I Finished a Giraffe; Plate Update; Writing, Reading, Loving Lately; and Meet My Bookshelves!)

Edited:

My bookshelf tour vlog 😛

Miscellaneoused:

Had a friend over to help with a leftover brownie “problem”

Enjoyed some AMAZING thunderstorms

Welcomed home new books

Watched the live action Aladdin with my siblings ❤

Celebrated AnnaStorynerd’s birthday 😀

I also had some amazing family hang out times (including s’mores and a really cool liturgy), shopped the back-to-school sales (because notebooks), watched Overcomer and cried my eyes out at the beauty, and did some training for a new volunteering opportunity at church. 😉

This month, I’m looking forward to working with beta-readers on my Christmas novella “Sincerely, Jem”, enjoying the real coming of autumn, and getting to further incorporate into my new church family. 

Oh, and I still have this cool thing to do…

How was your August? What are you looking forward to this month?
