September was a weird month again. Finished a writing project, fully settled into my apartment, and started classes for the last time. The reads this month were some catch-up reads, but also a few anticipated books.
August 2017 was my busiest month. Between wrapping up my summer project, taking a hiatus from writing, a family emergency, and moving, reading was a welcome refuge. Here’s what I learned this month.
Originally, this was going to be about how I always hit a point in my writing where I want to delete my book. Turns out, it was just a symptom of burning out. So, I’m talking about the necessity to take a break sometimes and common thought processes that can interrupt it.
June 2017 was a month I spent at book conventions. My TBR has exploded and it’s time I definitely got a bookshelf. Except, this month, I have to find a new apartment that can fit a new bookshelf. But first, here are the books I read in June. The rest comes later.
People need fuel to survive, like food and water. There’s also the goop that lets people pursue the work they do with the intensity and love it deserves. What happens when you’re going too hard on projects and seem to neglect the important break time between tasks?
Wanted to say that I’m proud to announce that I’m halfway through overhauling the latest of my primary work. It’s undergone such a makeover that I hardly recognize it from its original version and even less so from the very first draft. But I’m really excited. The story has finally found some common themes and I feel like I’ve matured somewhat as a writer. This brief post could probably use a longer update, but classes are back in session and it’s been too long.
