Beyond the Blog | 08.03.2014

beyond the blog

After experimenting with form, structure, and content, I’ve landed on my own Sunday recap/preview series. Here’s a sliver of life beyond the blog.

manuscripts // This was a pretty stressful week at work, so I really didn’t get a lot of writing done. I ended up making some character/plot notes, but that’s about it. I”m buckling down this week.

marginalia // I’m feeling pretty indecisive about what to read. In the past week, I listened to Savage Harvest: A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism, and Michael Rockefeller’s Tragic Quest for Primitive Art by Carl Hoffman. It was…okay; definitely not for the faint of heart, since the book opens with a fictionalized description of how Rockefeller might have been killed. I was hoping it would be more like Lost City of Z, but it fell short. I also read Megan Abbott’s The Fever, which I would love to discuss if anyone out there has read it! I started California and The Plantagenets: The Warrior Kings and Queens Who Made England. I’m going to see Edan Lepucki on Friday, so my goal is to finish California by then.

inspiration // This pin:


primped & polished // After last week’s eye look, I want to try something a little different. I’m going to try to adapt this look – soft, tousled hair and bold lips and eyes. It’ll be my first real pinspired challenge!

les habillements // I cleaned out my closet (and my Pinterest board), so this week I’m keeping it a little simple – playing around with a belt in my look. I’m looking at these three pins for inspiration!

blogging // A GRT feature. Reading habits. The first Character Study writing post. A couple of surprises. Weekly pinspired recap.

one more thing // Check out 1:1000 this month – each week we’re doing a piece and 1:1 interview with one of our regular contributors!
