January 2019 God damn! I burst into it this year on the other end. Last year I trounced 15 books my first month for my largest reading total to date. This time I did a modest 7, but cranked out 35,000 words on my writing project. I’m not entirely good at recalling my much older … Continue reading

Year in Review (Reading) 2018

Year in Review (Reading) 2018 Unlike other past years, this year my writing was cut back in certain ways, though I still wrote a lot. In consequence, my read skyrocketed.

Month in Review: September

September 2018 Back into my semester, I tried to get more writing done, but have slowed down a bit, as you can see with a measly 10,000 word count added to my total.
