Planner Post, Book Ending Spring, and Camp NaNo (Oh, My!)

Hi dreamers!

Its April! that means that both Book Ending Spring and Camp NaNoWriMo are happening all month! (This also means I won’t be sleeping all month!) I thought with my planner post this month that I would tell you all my goals for these two great events and a little about them if you wanted to join me on my insomniac journey.

Bookending Spring

Bookend events were created by Sam @ FictionallySam and Clo @ BookDragons. (Two great bloggers and you should check them out!) They host these quarterly events to bring our book blogging community a little closer.

They have hosts and prompts and even a tidyathon! (See full explanation post here.) Today’s host is Jayati and she’s posting about Spring Book releases here.

This is my first ever bookending event and so this is my first ever bookending post!


For Bookending Spring (aka #BEspring19) I will be doing both the posts (because I do more than 3 posts a month anyway) and the tidyathon (because boy does my blog need it!)

For the Tidyathon my goals are:

  • Organize my behind the scenes
  • Update my Pinterest graphic and links
  • Update my graphics
  • Come up with a Twitter/Instagram Plan
  • Fix my links
  • Organize tags
  • Organize Goodreads and make sure my reviews are up to date!

This is a lot, and I’m probably not going to get to a lot of it, but those are my goals.

Camp NaNoWriMo

As for Camp NaNo, I’ve talked about it before, but it’s an even run by National Novel Writing Month, but instead of writing 50,000 words you can choose your own goals.

Find out more here.

My goal this year is to get 25,000 more words on my novel and edit what I have. By the end of the month I hope to have 75,000 words.

April 2018 Planner

My planner is keeping me sane this month!

First I have my BEspring list to help remind me where my goals are!

I also have a little daily schedule that I’m going to try my hardest to stick to!

My planner is also where I will be jotting a lot of notes and things I need to remember so I can successfully get through both of these huge events!

Are you participating in any of these events? Let me know in the comments and tell me your goals!

There’s quite a few behind the scenes type of things I could work on this month…might need to do that. I really want to get as many posts scheduled ahead as I can too!

Good luck,

I am also taking part in BEspring19! And it will also be my first time. However I will only do the tidyathon. But for the next Bookending I plan to take fully part 😀
