Happy Sunday, people of the world. This is my weekly segment where I wrap up everything that’s happened in this week in case you’ve missed anything.
First off — it’s been exam week. My HSC (Higher School Certificate, for you people who aren’t from Australia) Trial Examinations . . . which has been rather stressful. Luckily I only have one more exam to go — Food Technology — so my blogging schedule should be back to normal again. Yay!
But despite my exams and non-existent weekends, I’ve still managed to write. Um, kind of. Some words are better than none, yes? At least that’s what I tell myself, looking at the pathetic 120 words written on Friday night as I am scheduling this post. The Empire of Stars is plodding along nicely at a current word count of 33,794 words, while hundreds of other plot bunnies are clamouring to be heard, and my Camp NaNoWriMo novel sits on an obscure part of my USB, where I am dreading the day where I decide I’ll rewrite it, only to find it’s an utter mess.
Apart from all that though, my week has been pretty dang dull. I’ve had my head buried in
procrastination study notes, quotes (oh, Peter Skrzynecki, how every high school student out there throughout dislikes belonging), and other useless facts that I’m sure I’ll never need to know again. But I’m not complaining! My HSC Trials are almost done! Then I have to start working about the actual HSC exams . . .
Time for the wrap-up: What’s happened this week?
Monday — Stacking the Shelves (1o)
Thursday — Book Review: The Dark World by Cara Lynn Shultz [2/5 stars]
I’ve also just finished Take Me On, by Katy McGarry — I had a few issues with it, but overall it was a good read, and I’m now reading my first ever non-fiction book. On Writing by Stephen King, and wow, it’s really useful! I’ll probably end up reviewing it, but if you’re a writer, I would definitely recommend it! No new Stacking the Shelves this week. I really need to make a dent in all the library books I’ve acquired.
