BLOG BREAK Betterment, Books and Bullets

Nick Cross presents his fortnightly selection of must-read blogs.

I thought we were done with reviews and resolutions after the last Blog Break, but they keep on coming! Writer/illustrator Leila Nabih has reviewed her progress for 2017, as much for herself as for anyone else. Which is good, because now I'm envious of everything she's managed to achieve ;-)

Claire Watts is all about the drama. Or at least, her writing resolution for 2018 is.

Some great advice from Jo Franklin about how you can join in with her new habit for 2018 - bullet journaling. No, it isn't to do with how much violence you can inflict on your characters, but a great way to get organised.

Rowena House has clearly been on a very emotional journey to create her debut novel. Blogging for an Awfully Big Blog Adventure, she talks about the books that helped shape her WWI coming-of-age story.

Addy Farmer manages to combine a review of 2017 and a list of books in her post for Notes from the Slushpile. No idea what a Tsundoko is? It's time you found out...

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
