Musing on August, Hailing September

12:55 AM


Greetings from the cave! 

A little chill in the air is now signalling the end of the summer is nearing...and to be frank, I'm ready for it. I got some ponchos from a friend of mine, and my knee high boots are dying to be worn again. Also, I'm really wondering if pumpkin bread will be coming back soon, among other pumpkin and apple things. 

But anyway, what else has been going on? 

1. Editing contract signed! TWR officially went off to the editor early this month. I won't get her back until late September, but I'm okay with that. It gives me a much needed break. 

2. LIA PUBLISHED HER POETRY COLLECTION. The publishing journey itself was fraught with peril but it is now out in the world. Now to actually get it into people's hands...that is another matter. Stay tuned for more updates on Lia's Instagram and her blog! 

3. SARAH AND JULIAN ALSO PUBLISHED THEIR BOOK! I wrote a review of it in my last post, and hopefully I shall obtain my own print copy in the near future. Because even though I have an e-arc, it well deserves to be sitting on my bookshelf. 

4. As of August 7, I got an Instagram! I would love for you guys to join me (@rebellinglass71)! So far, it's not too bad (though I have had to fight off my fair share of stalkers already) and I'm making some great connections. Though I seriously want to know how in the world I managed to get over 150 followers already?

For Working by Candlelight, I wrote 1 post: The Rough Road to Tradition. It's all about my journey to Catholicism, so if you're curious, please have a read! 

For Rebelling Muse, I wrote 5 posts: End of Camp NaNoWrimo July 2020, My Author Platform Struggles, Professional Photo Shoot and Fun in the Creek, Review: The Chosen (Season 1), and Blog Tour: A Review of Ships, Secrets and Survivors. Maybe that's why my other blog got neglected, lol. 

For Maidens for Mary, I wrote no posts. 

Now, there is some huge news in regard to two other blogs. 

The first is that Rebellious Writing has been officially retired, as all of the team members have been just too busy. You could say that it was a COVID casualty, lol. As such, it is disappearing from my blog stats on these wrapups. 

The second is that I have just privatized my third blog, The Cat in the Barnyard. Many of you know that I have been really struggling with this blog - what it's purpose is, especially - and so I've decided to take it offline entirely for a time. However, I do have plans to bring it back later this fall, as I work it into more of a history blog with agricultural highlights, rather than the other way around. Hence it is also disappearing from my blog stats, albeit temporary. 

Goal #1 (TWR): TWR is now in the hands of the editor, and she won't be back until the end of September. While I enjoy my break, I shall work on other pressing projects, LOL. 

Goal #2 (Platform): I've branched out into some new social media platforms that will hopefully be useful for building my platform. Now I suppose the next step is a proper email list....

Goal #3 (April NaNo): FINISHED. You can view the completed story on Wattpad HERE.

Goal #4 (NaNo): No progress. 

Goal #5 (Movies): We watched 3 new movies! Only 7 more to go! 

Goal #6 (Library): No progress.

Goal #7 (Vlogs): FINISHED. You can view the Fandoms one HERE and the Bucket List one HERE.

I'm maybe thinking about changing up that first section of the wrap-up, what do you think? It just seems a bit....sparse. Any suggestions? How has your August gone? 

Scribbingly yours,

  1. Sounds like you had a productive month! My August went really well, although I didn't quite get done everything I wanted to...

  2. Just an FYI *cough* the paperback copy of SSaS has illustrations that the eARC and the ebook don't have *cough*

    Congrats on getting your book off to the editor! I'm sure that's both exciting and nervewracking.

    I hope September treats you well!

  3. Accccccck so exciting about your editor!! Enjoy the well-deserved break and the cooling weather!

  4. Eeep! An editor!! :D I hope that you have a fantastic September!
