Beyond the Blog | 12.07.2014

A sliver of life beyond the blog.

currently // Recovering from the craziness that has been work, and travel, and family, and everything the last few weeks. Blergh.

manuscripts // Started reconceptualizing major plot points, social structure, and foundational elements of the manuscript. What is wrong with me. This is why we can’t have nice things.

marginalia // Finished The Martian by Andy Weir, which was a wonderful audiobook and had me stressing during my commute. I also blew through Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer, which wasn’t as good as The Interestings. I wouldn’t recommend Belzhar, especially when similar books like Conversion and The Fever pull off twists and character development better. I also wrapped up The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss. Still mulling over that one, to be honest.

blogging // Favorite books of 2014. Recommended reading to avoid “distancing the other.” What George Lucas taught me about writing. That capsule wardrobe post I never typed up. Weekend Reads.

one more thing // I watched Attack the Block yesterday during a reading/writing break and it made me even more excited to see John Boyega in this little indie flick. Ha.
