Activity log

I have two and a quarter million words since September 2015 by September 2016. I would like to have read 3 million

I would love to start reading a bigger variety of books and genres so that I can develop my reading and writing skills.

How about reading all the books on the top 10 volunteer reads list?

This year, I want to read a wider variety of novels, and maybe write my own novel/fan fiction, so I'm challenging myself to read different genres, rather than what I usually go for. Right now, I'm finishing reading the Wicked Years series by Gregory Maguire, and I love it :)

I'm trying to branch out into new types of fiction this year. As I'm always short on time I thought it would be a good idea to try some collections of short stories. I've started on Neil Gaiman's 'Trigger Warning' and I'm really enjoying it so far :)
