April 2021

You may have noticed this Monthly Wrap is the first post on Hail & Well Read since April 3rd. While I didn’t mean to take a hiatus, the fact of the matter is that life got away from me.

Or maybe it’s more accurate to say that it ran me over with a bus. Repeatedly.

Read on today for an explanation of my absence, as well as my hopes for the month ahead.

Monthly Wrap || February 2021

February 2021

To tell the truth, I’m in awe that February 2021 managed to pack so muchΒ everythingΒ into every day, despite being the shortest month of the year. And a few days later, it’s still halfway a blur.

But! It’s a good blur, and I’m eager to share it with you all. I hope you’ll continue reading and share some of the February joy with me!

Monthly Wrap || November 2020

November 2020

I’m finding it hard to believe that it’s the end of November 2020, and at the same time? I just did NaNoWriMo, so my sense of time is all kinds of skewed. I know only word counts and deadlines, and nothing else.

Okay, maybe I know more than that. But it’s mostly what already happened. The future is a big ball of mystery still, mostly because I can’t really see where anything is headed more than a couple hours in advance. My planning abilities are just plain pooped, folks. Just all tuckered out. Oof.

Monthly Wrap || September 2020

September 2020

I don’t known how your September 2020 went, but I’ll admit mine was…perhaps less than stellar. It’s not the rush of good news I craved, and it’s not particularly awe-inspiring.

But it’s still another month, which calls for another Monthly Wrap. Can’t go breaking tradition, now can we?

Monthly Wrap || August 2020

August 2020

I’ll admit that it feels strange, doing Monthly Wraps again. I sort of did one to cover my hiatus in this Weekly Wrap, but the last time Hail & Well Read had a proper Monthly Wrap was all the way back in May. It’s August 2020 now, though, as much as we’d all like it to just…not be 2020, which means it’s time to give it another go!

Monthly Wrap || April 2020

April 2020

I both can and can’t believe we’re at the end of April already. Why did March last a thousand years but April is already over? I need an expert to explain this. Please. Help me make sense of the passage of time, or I’ll be forced to do it through highly personal wrap posts.

Oh wait. That’s what we’re already here for.
