camp nano week one recap + introducing my podcast!

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! I am so excited about this post because I have some exciting news!

So I have decided to suffer and endure in camp nanowrimo! Nanowrimo is short for National Novel Writing Month (which is in November!) Camp Nano is in spring and encourages you to write! It’s really fun because you can have a cabin with your friends and new friends and have fun writing!

My Book WIP

I haven’t really made a cover yet (OOF) But I am still making okayish progress.

Word Count: 3304                                                               Word Goal: 50,000

Okay Maybe I am not making too much progress, but I really love how the story is progressing.

sooo what even is my story?

I really love this idea and I don’t really want anyone to steal it so I am going to kinda not tell too much but here are some sneak peeks about it

  1. its called bookish
  2. there’s a brooding guy with a trenchcoat in it
  3. there’s a bookish fangirl that has a book blog
  4.  fiction and the real world are combined sorta
  5. lots of cute scenesss

i am still deciding everything so i don’t have a lot of info lol

now onto the excitingg newssssssssssssssss:

what I’ve been working on ( a fancy excuse explaining why I haven’t posted since the 8th)+BLOG UPDATE ps. it’s SNOWING!!

Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web!-and if you’re new here thanks for stopping by!❤ Also sorry about the long title, I usually don’t do that but I got a little excited 😀 Also I am really sorry I haven’t posted in a while LIFE HAS BEEN BUSY!

So I didn’t really realize that Elysian Artiste has reached 212 followers! I MEAN WHAT?!?! It means so much! Blogging has been a great experience❤❤ Thank you all so much!

Now I have some other updates about a schedule- a blogging schedule! I really need to start planning when to post because I sometimes can get really distracted. really. So I have decided to post twice a week on Tuesdays and maybe Fridays or Saturdays. 

Tuesdays will be more bookish or focusing on a book or book tag, recent reads or some bookish thing.📖

WAIT FOR IT WAIT FOR ITTTT!!!

this is very small but I hope you all enjoy!

My little sister just lost her first tooth so I did a little photo-shoot with her!

ISN’T SHE SO CUTE !

So I recently got back into my wreck this journal! It is really soothing, especially since I strive to make my art look perfect. I really recommend it if your someone who always wants to be perfect, it really loosens your creativity and is relaxing. Here are some pages I have finished.

some of them are a little messy but I had so much fun making them! I am hopefully going to make a WTJ post filled with tips and cool ideas!

also guys its snowing!
