What a month, my friends. What a month. If I thought most of this year has been a roller coaster, it doesn’t have ANYTHING on September 2021. Sure, I’ve missed my Monthly Wraps for a few months now, but since I’m finally sitting down to write one again, I’m realizing just how bonkers it’s really been! 😵

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.

To tell the truth, I’m in awe that February 2021 managed to pack so much everything 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!

It’s no longer January 2021, which is a massive relief. Anyone else ready to live in boring, uninteresting times? Raise your hand if you’re with me. Please.

Oh, thank goodness, it’s over. 2020 is behind us, and even if the barrier between years is just an arbitrary chunk of time, I’m still ready to have it in the rearview mirror. And to make it official, let’s dig into the December 2020 Monthly Wrap! 😳

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.

October 31st, 2020
The best part about wrapping up October 2020 with a Weekly Wrap smashed into a Monthly Wrap is that it’s almost like a little Halloween costume for the blog!
Or maybe I’m just a little too worn out from spooky season and seeing it everywhere? 🎃

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?

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!

Truly, May 2020 has proven itself to be something of a storm. Trying to effectively recap it all feels like a daunting task at this point, and I’m not sure I can possibly succeed. That’s no reason not to try, though, and we’ll see how thorough we can be.
