An acquaintance of mine gave a mid-year tally of her publications, writings, movies watched, books read, etc. and it inspired me to look at the numbers for my year.
- read 7 books
- saw 58 movies
- wrote 5 book reviews
- wrote 2 poems
- wrote 35 short stories (most still in first draft stage)
I found I am poor at keeping track of such things. My husband generally keeps track of my movies for me. For the remainder of the year I will need to do a better job of tracking my read books. I won’t even attempt to keep track of the short stories I’ve read. Since creating the tally I’ve read two more books and added them to a Word document that has the books I can remember reading this year. See? Already I’m doing a better job!
Prior to last year’s move I had over 125 books in my “to be read” (TBR) pile. I’m starting to work on that pile though it goes ever so slowly. It wasn’t built in a day though, so I have no illusions that it will disappear in a day, or a week, or even a few months.
