Sunday Weekly Wrap-Up



I have had another break from blogging, partly from work on some writing projects and a need to really decide where I wanted the blog to go and what projects I really wanted to focus on.

The writing has been enjoyable. Friday I joined in with NaNoWriMo - with plans to write a novel in a month. So far I am on track. This has been a secret dream for a long time and I plan to achieve this goal.

I have been creating a bit, mostly ATCs.  I have several courses I need to focus on this month and hopefully will have some pieces to show next week,

Watercolour
I have been enjoying my watercolour course. This week we looked at layering - something I always thought was difficult but found fascinating, if a bit challenging.


ATCs
I completed several cards for swaps:

Fall/winter









This week I have not done as much reading as I had hoped, but did finish a book that I received in a giveaway from Goodreads.

"Morven and the Horse Clan" by Luanne Armstrong
This is a YA novel and was enjoyable. A good look at early prehistoric clans and how horses may have been introduced. The character of Morven was interesting - an outsider who felt lonely and unwanted. Teens could ident with her.

I am still reading "Three Day Road" and am caught up in the story as it moves from WWI France to Canada's north. A very powerful story. I aim to finish it this week as I have so many others to read.

I admire you for taking on NaNoWriMo and AEDM together. It's lovely to see your art and I hope you are enjoying the creative writing just as much. Best of luck with both!

Happy to hear your reading is well underway! As planned, I have read one from the house and one from the library so far this month. I plan to read only books from the house for the next while - except for what my book club picks.
