Monday MishMash: November 2017

Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme created by Kelly Hashway for sharing what's going on in your life and noggin. You just grab a button and post your business...I mean thoughts online. No biggie. Have fun!

1. Working through some freelancing woes. Fiverr's changing its analytics and it's throwing my scores out of whack. Complaining to customer support isn't helping. I just have to work on fixing the damage before January's evaluation. I'm not losing my Level 2 Seller status. I mean falling by almost 20% for literally no reason should be explained or rectified. Not giving me an article on best sellers.

2. Considering which story to spruce up and post on Swoon Reads website. I considered fantasy but they rarely choose those and the last winners list was three instead of four pickups of new authors. Now I'm torn between a paranormal story that's set in modern day with contemporary elements or a contemporary story with a teen obsessed with a fictional character on her favourite show.

3. Reading is going poorly. I keep starting then stopping for days or weeks. Thank goodness I even read and reviewed Rotten Rapunzel recently. I'm determined to improve though. Wish me luck.

4. Doing Nanowrimo again this year with a Mermaid Retelling. No way I make the wordcount but at least I'll have the ground work.

5. My appetite is back so I'm mostly happy about that. Not 100% because yesterday I accidentally spilt soup on myself. Fatigue and flu don't mix well with reflexes. Ouch!

6. I will be doing a huge Netflix Nation post on Friday. Still considering exactly what to do with all my movie posts and series reviews (I think I'll keep them on Instagram). But despite making this a book blog, I think doing at least a monthly or bi monthly post on Netflix shows can fit. Other sites have done it sharing their other interest besides books once in a while. Besides these posts are fun.

7. My birthday is November 29th! I plan to buy my own cake. Never bought a whole cake myself before. I'm so excited!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. At least a monthly posting of movies will be good. (I'll be heading out that day for Thanksgiving weekend, so sorry if I miss it.)
    Sorry about the Fiverr issues.

    1. Agreed. Yeah Fiverr needs to get their analytics checked. Enjoy Thanksgiving and thanks for coming, Alex.

  2. Too bad about your technical issues. I haven't been reading as much as I want either. Took some time to finish a book yesterday. It was great.

  3. Sorry about Fiverr. I've never used that site, so unfortunately I have no suggestions for you. Good luck with NaNo. I love retellings. My reading has been awful too. I'm editing a lot, and that leaves no time for reading just for fun. I definitely am reading a lot, but it's all for work.

  4. I tried using Fiverr to find someone to help me with my logo, but it was such a mess. Not a fan. I'm not surprised you're having some technical issues.

    NaNo has pretty much destroyed any chance of me doing any reading this month. But I've been fighting the word count dragon!


Merry Christmas 2018 and Goodbye Readers

Merry Christmas to all my readers old and new. Thank you for all the support. Sadly I'm closing this blog for good. I thought I could co...
