Happy July

I honestly hadn't even realized I skipped June. Here comes another two-monther, woo!

Finished that GotG one-shot and a new chapter of the Kastle fic. That's going to be an undertaking if I really want it to be complete by the end of the year, but I'm feeling pretty into it and even started a spontaneous rewatch of The Punisher (S1 only of course!).

Original fiction:
Yesterday was the first day of Camp NaNoWriMo! I'd like to say I know that because I'm so on top of things, and in fact I did get myself an account set up before July began, but yesterday was busy and I didn't actually touch it. And I don't know what I'm writing about. But hey! I'm participating!
Since last time I've written like, one line of poetry. Poked my head into some of my other projects too, but nothing to cross off the list.

Art and crafting:
I've got one niece and one nephew to make things for. I want to try sewing a little skirt for Clara, but Sean is the hard one, especially since after seeing him in person I'm not convinced he's as into Redwall as my sister said he was.
Although most of them aren't in the shop yet, I've made a whole bunch of earrings -- ten pairs, I think, but apparently the goal I set for myself was twelve. No matter; while we were in Illinois I collected some nice sea glass and now I have something to wrap in wire, which is always fun.
Finished the hippocampus oil painting, which means (haha yeah right) I've learned a new medium. I don't want to look at oils again for a long time, but on the other hand, I felt that way about sewing after those last projects too, and now I'm feeling drawn to it again.

I'm not sure how close to my goal of 24 books I am. Probably depends on what I decide counts, but even if I leave out all the rereads/graphic novels/children's, it's not a difficult goal.
We're close to the end of The Fellowship of the Ring over at tomes_of_lore. It's still totally fine to jump in and join us at any point!

TV and games:
Simon and I bought the final season of Game of Thrones, but since we're watching it together it will probably be about an episode a month. Good thing it's such a short season! I thought the premiere was pretty good. Nice dragonriding.
Haven't played FFIX for a while. I keep forgetting about it, plus there are so many things to watch on TV.

I fiddle with the 30 day meme now and then. I'm honestly not really keeping track of how much meta/review stuff I write, but I feel like I'm not that behind? I mean, I did do a book post not that long ago, right?
