100 Followers???

Guys. My goodness, THE RKW REACHED (and surpassed!) 100 FOLLOWERS!!! This… wow, many thanks to everyone who has followed and supported me. I really appreciate it—it means a lot. 🙂

And thank you, Jesus! This is a very generous gift. Thanks for always being there in this blogging rollercoaster.

To all you faithful readers and followers, I do hope I bring you insightful, quality content, and I hope following is worth it for you! 😀

Now for some celebration. Of course, we all need chocolate…

Chocolate!

I’ve also compiled five great “you know you’re a writer when” moments, turned them into fun little graphics, and made this small slideshow for you. So here you go!

You know you’re a writer when…

I hope you liked them! Of course, they’re not super professional or anything, and maybe a bit flashy, but I really enjoyed making them!

Now, time for the…

Q&A!

The difference with this is that it’s a Question and Answer for you guys, my readers! You’ll hear from me at least three times a month consistently, but unless you have a blog I follow, I don’t hear much from you.

So here are three questions I’d really love for you to answer!

1. What’s your favorite genre—for writing and reading? I’m only assuming that you write, but because you’re reading this I know you read something.

2. What’s one virtue you want to grow in this year? It doesn’t have to the one. Just one of them if there are multiple.

3. What’s your favorite indoor and outdoor pastime?

Don’t feel obligated to answer all or any of them, but I’d really like to hear your answers if you don’t mind! 😄

That’s all for today. Thanks for reading!

With God’s help,

The New Blogging Plan

Hey! I’m back, and the month of February passed pretty quickly, I have to say. Today I’m going to jump in and explain the new blogging plan for the Right Kind of Writer! I don’t want to take too much of your time to explain, so I’ll be brief.

  1. I’m officially posting three days a month! The first and last Mondays and the 15th of every month.
  2. I have divided my topics to fit the three-post-plan:
  • The topic of the first Monday is writing. I’ll be switching between giving writing advice and sharing my own writing.
  • The 15th’s topic will be random. FREE REIGN, WHATEVER I FEEL LIKE POSTING! It might be a blog collab, some random life thoughts, all the FuN sTuFf!
  • The topic of the last Monday will be Christianity. In true honesty, I often feel very unqualified to talk to you about Christianity and offer advice because I am imperfect; I’m a sinner. And yeah I know we all are sinners, but that’s kind of how I’ve been feeling. But I can’t stop delving into His Word just because I’m scared I’ll say something wrong, thus me forcing myself to step out of my comfort zone.
  • There’ll also be Specials from time to time, whether for holidays or some other important event or announcement.

3. I’m not going to be doing many book reviews anymore. I realize I’m not very good, and I need to read many more books to develop that skill.

4. I reached and surpassed 100 subscribers!! Thank you all so much!—I’m saying that much but the rest of the thanks and celebration is reserved for next week. 😉

I believe that’s all… yeah.

With God’s help,

November Wrap-Up & December Preparations

Hello there! Good old Obi Wan quotes.

I was hoping to have some writing advice for you today, but after some fellow writers went through editing it, I realized that it is, um, most definitely not ready for sharing. I didn’t really have any back-up advice post ready and I could never focus on one helpful topic long enough to finish it, so I thought I’d just wrap up this month with some updates! I’ve divided these updates into three sections: goals, blogging, and reading.

Goals

I had three goals that I shared with you a few weeks ago:

  1. Finish my project Beyond the Wolf (i.e. reach 60K words) by December 15 (52/60, rounded down).
  2. Publish at least 4 posts in the month of November (1/4).
  3. Run three times a week, unless the temperature is below-40° F (I’m starting with this week, because I only ran twice last week).

And here are the updates:

  1. I completed my goal of reaching 60,000 (60K) words sixteen days before the due date! [Screenshot of proof is put after the list.] Although, I didn’t actually finish the book. . . far from it, really. It’ll probably be done by 70K words. *facepalm* I’ll need to put a good chunk of time into outlining.
  2. I was able to publish five posts, one more than the said goal!
  3. I, um, *cough* didn’t do so good in this one. Only two weeks, I think, did I run three times. But I ran a 5K on Thanksgiving morning and I was aiming for 21 minutes, but I beat it by 11 seconds! So, um, yeah, that was cool.
This was through Reedsy.com.

Blogging

Like I said earlier, I have a habit of not putting enough effort into starting and finishing a post, so I have a whole bunch of unfinished blog post drafts piling up in my google docs. 😆

The plus is that I can always come back to them and if I put enough effort in, I can finish. This December I hope to provide you with at least four posts! I have a good idea of what I want for three of them, so I hope that turns out well and works out for you too. 🙂

I also just want to say I appreciate all the support you readers have given me! It really is encouraging. And can you believe that I’m almost at 100 subscribers?? 0-0 This means a lot to me.

Reading

A while ago my friend Laurel tagged me for the Bookworm Tag. I wanted to post my version earlier in November, but as I was going through answering the questions, I realized that, and this is hard for me to admit, I don’t actually read as much as a writer should. I write much more than I read, and it’s good that I’ve had plenty of motivation to write, but I hardly read at all. This December I am going to try to finish reading three books by the end of December, not including school books. I’ve already started reading 88 pages (out of 390, so about 1/4) of The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann.

And there you have some of the inside scoop into my life. May God bless you during the Christmas season! Farewell. See you next week! 😉
