October in Review

September 2018 Working hard so far with a little inspiration. Still somehow in the mix of it was able to read more than my normal monthly average, so glad there too. With a vacant weekend coming up, I should be able to tackle even more writing. Books Read First off, I tackled another Sedaris book, … Continue reading October in Review

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. The reading has only appeared to be smaller than usual because I’m devouring every single Walking Dead comic I can find. I … Continue reading Month in Review: September

End of June Review

June 2018 With another semester coming to an end, I found some time on my hands. I wasn’t able to read as much as I’m used to—usually eight to ten books a month—but I also got a lot of reading, planning, and rewriting done. I’m very happy with where I’m at right now—though I wish … Continue reading End of June Review

April–End of Month Wrap Up!

April 2018 Been busy this month, as usual, but actually complete a lot more than I expected. Books Read Again, I tried something light, so I read They Both Die at the End. Ah…yeah, it’s YA, and it fits all the horrible requirements that are YA. There is heavy repetition, bloating the book out to … Continue reading April–End of Month Wrap Up!

End of March

March 2018 The new semester started and everything’s going full swing again, yet still I’ve gotten some things done that I’m proud of finding the time to do. Books Read First up, I read this very strange ‘On Method Acting,’ inspired by my earlier read of ‘Moonwalking with Einstein.’ I wanted to up my game … Continue reading End of March

Look Back Part 2: Classics

A Look Back at My Reading List (2017 Part 2: Classics) The definition of Classic can sometimes be hard to pin down. Italo Calvino dedicated a whole essay to it showing how hard it actually is. The meaning ranges from world lit to individual lit for each country or region. However, for me, these are … Continue reading Look Back Part 2: Classics

Year in Review (Reading) 2017

Year in Review (Reading) 2017 I did again. I complete my reading goals and then some. Although my writing kept its usual pace, I was happy that neither suffered due to each other this year. Two years ago, I took down 52 books. Last year, it was 81. This year, I dropped a bit landing … Continue reading Year in Review (Reading) 2017

Year in Review (Writing) 2017

Year in Review (Writing) 2017 This year has seen many changes in the way I’m going about my writing. On top of that, I’ve fully written two books of different genres while delving into some side projects. First, I complete the manuscript for an idea I’ve brooding over for a while. One day while watching … Continue reading Year in Review (Writing) 2017

End of the Month: November

November 2017 Another month down, and it didn’t go quite as I had planned, but…we’ll see. Books Read First, I zipped through another quick library read. Usually English books—especially contemporary and current ones—are hard to find here in Korea, but I saw this on the shelf and picked it up. It was all over the … Continue reading End of the Month: November
