How do I describe November? It was a frustrating time with edits, a confusing time with learning new technology of the modern TV (yes, you can laugh at me 😉 ), a depressing time as the days grow ever shorter and shorter towards winter, and a blessed time as Thanksgiving Day was shared with family and friends.
Here is a short overview of all that happened this November on the blog and offline—This post is also a part of the Monthly Wrap-up Round-up link up. 🙂
WIP “V. Chronicles” Progress
Yes, this was a frustrating month for edits. In my previous round of edits, I did not do a very good job of fixing problems in chapter 7, and this left me with a lot of cleaning up to do once I reached it this month. What were the problems? Basically certain scenes not quite fitting in, and needing either to be changed or removed. Deciding how to go about doing that is what caused me the most frustration. If you like, I’ll discuss more about it in a Behind the Scenes post this month, and in the Newsletter. 🙂
The blog series Madnes Solver has recently entered The Haunted Forest arc. If you haven’t read it yet, you can still catch up! A world of fantasy, steampunk, and mystery awaits…

Mockingjay Part 2 (Hunger Games)
This was a great finale to the series! From what I hear, it follows the book spot on–though I’ve never read it. The movie was filled with all the action and intensity that I’ve loved about the series, and that strong fighting spirit against oppression and tyranny.
Sad things did happen. People died and I felt it was a little cliche in some cases–not all cases, but there was one where it was very obvious to me from the start that a certain person would die.
The ending nicely caught me by surprise, though! And there was some unexpected happiness, which made for a perfect ending to an epic saga. I definitely recommend seeing it. Be prepared for non-stop action and many feels!
Did you see Mockingjay part 2? What did you think of it?
THINGS TO COME
I would like to start a Behind The Scenes post series for V. Chronicles: a post that will narrate my progress, show you how I edit, offer writing tips, and more. Hopefully it will begin this December, but we’ll see. 🙂
