Happy Sunday! It has been a quiet and calm yet also busy weekend because I have been finishing up homework and studying for my last few tests coming next week. I haven’t done a ton of reading but I have done some over this past week so I thought I would share what I have accomplished so far because at least it is something!
Currently I am reading two books. Two books that I absolutely adore and am loving reading so much I don’t ever want them to end. The first one is Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert which is a non-fiction book on creativity. I am on page 154 of 273 and have found it so incredibly inspiring and informative, that I have enjoyed taking my time this past week reading it. I don’t usually sit down and just read non-fiction books (I usually just scan them and take note of anything I find useful), but with this one I haven’t taken a single note. I’ve just been sitting and down and reading it which is really nice. The other book I am reading is a re read, and that is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone! I am not very far in it at all, but I am a good 70 pages into it and I cannot wait to keep diving in. I’ve been distracted with reading Big Magic in the spare time I do spend reading, but once I finish it I will be giving Harry Potter by full attention and will hopefully finish it before winter break starts this coming Friday!
Lately I have been searching up more essay contests ever since the last one I entered a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed writing that essay and would like to continue practicing and submitting more essays. Other than googling about writing, I have not written much lately…really I just want to get through this last week of school and then once I am on break I want to spend some time outlining because I have a story that I want to explore! It is an interesting idea to me, and I am hoping that it will take me by the reins and guide me to writing it, but you never know with ideas!
That is all for my reading/writing update and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Liebster Awards! 🙂
