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,
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.
I completed several cards for swaps:
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.
