MY FIRST BULLET JOURNAL 🖤 2019 Bullet Journal Setup

New year, new bullet journal, same me.

2019 is my year for predicting my own future. I have so many goals I want to accomplish this year—like reading 70 books, publishing SLEEPING AROUND, graduating from grad school—and this bullet journal (and hopefully you!) will journey with me through this year.

Happy New Year, reader friends! ✨

ABOUT MY BOOK

My young adult contemporary SLEEPING AROUND is about a foster-care escapee searching to belong at college.

Sleeping Around Aesthetics

Eighteen-year-old freshman CORA LI has never belonged—not with her unknown parents in Taiwan or at her past eleven foster homes. But Cora must belong at Borns College. She’s supposed to live in Harmony Hall, make good grades, and sit first chair violinist. She’s not supposed to show up on move-in day without a room, rejected from the music program. So when Residence Life shoves her into a temporary triple after effing up her room assignment, and one of her new roommates throws her out, she struggles to keep hold of her dream to belong. Cora begins sleeping around campus—from air mattresses to drainage tunnels—while waiting for reslife to call with an open room.

College feels like the foster care system Cora’s trying to escape, complete with incompetent adults and bitchy peers. Then her plummeting grades threaten her with academic probation. But despite her friendship fall-outs, messy romances, and lack of a room, Cora refuses to be another foster care statistic.

ABOUT ME

IMG_3948I’m currently a graduate student in the Writing, Rhetoric & Technical Communication program at James Madison University, where I also work full-time in career services. I’ll also be an intern at a publishing house this year!

Some of my favorite books are To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Raven Boys, and some of my favorite shows are Stranger ThingsSupergirlPretty Little Liars, and the YouTube series Carmilla.

As a mentee, I’ll bring a dedicated, persistent work ethic. This book is near to my heart—as I went through a similar but less-traumatic experience in college—but I want to make this book the best it can be. Along with beta readers, critique partners, and sensitivity readers, I’ve taken this book as far as I can. I would be thrilled to be chosen as a mentee, and I would give my everything to this process.

April was Camp NaNoWriMo. ⛺️

And—even though I failed on my reaching my goal of 50,000 words 😂🤪—I succeeded in starting my next WIP and book baby A FORTUNE FOR STARS, a young adult paranormal and queer The Ravens Boys! 🔮🌙⭐️❄️. I am still proud of every word I’ve managed to write.
