Rewind & Review #147

~I'm attempting NaNoWriMo for the first time since summer 2017. I'm trying to keep it low pressure, though, so if I don't write 50,000 words, it's okay. (Sidebar: I really hate that they don't let you choose your word count goal. Don't make me feel bad if I can't write 50k in a month, NaNo!) I also need to be revising M&F soooooo.... We'll see what gets prioritized.
~I completed my Goodreads challenge last Sunday! Not stopping now, obviously, so we'll see how far over I can go.
~My mom and I went to brunch at another Richmond place: Lucy's Restaurant. It was cute, and the food was yummy.

  1. Good luck on NaNo! I remember doing Camp NaNo a few years ago and it was a blast!

  2. A Lady's Guide to Gossip and Murder was really good! I'm really looking forward to the next book in that series. And good luck with both NaNo and revising! :)
