I love reading these monthly update posts from other bloggers because they always give me great ideas and inspiration, so I thought I'd take a stab at writing one of my own!
Watching: I know I'm behind the times, but I recently started binge watching Once Upon A Time on Netflix. I clicked on it randomly one night and got totally hooked! I know season six is on the air right now but I'm still working my way through the archives so no spoilers please! This is a great show if you're looking for something fun with both adventure and romance mixed in. I love unwinding with an episode at the end of a long day.
Reading: I'm currently catching up on my magazine subscriptions and am reading the September edition of Vanity Fair. The November edition just arrived in my mailbox and I realized I better get caught up! I've also got a bunch of books on the docket which you can check out on my October Reading List.
Listening to: Podcasts mostly! I just discovered Alec Baldwin's podcast Here's The Thing, and I'm hooked. I'm not necessarily an Alec Baldwin fan, but the podcast is all interviews with fascinating people and it turns out he's a really good interviewer! I've been working my way through the archives and some highlights include interviews with Lena Dunham, Michael Pollen, and the CEO of Starbucks.
Working on: The final chapter of my book! I can't believe I'm actually able to write that but it's true! To be fair, I'm working on the final chapter of the first draft so there's still a very very long way to go. Never-the-less, I'm so excited to have a full first draft of the manuscript completed by the end of the year. That was one of my goals for 2016 and I can't wait to be able to say I've done it!
Dreaming of: My trip to NYC which I booked this very morning! I'm going in January as part of my MFA program and I can't wait to be back in the classroom and reunited with all my writer friends. Plus, I've booked a couple extra days in the city before classes start and I've already chosen what plays I want to see. I can't wait to spent a good ten days talking in one of my favourite cities!
What are you up to this month? What are you dreaming of?
