happening // Sometimes you need a weekend where you just decompress. The last two days were bliss. Scott and I saw two movies, cooked yummy food (mostly Scott; I was happy to eat it, though!), and I read and wrote.
writing // I’ve had a lot of different ideas running through my head, so I’ve been working on different short story pieces. It’s been such a change of pace to have too many ideas for short stories. I’ve even started 1:1000 pieces and had to discard them because the story eclipses the flash fiction format.
reading // I am finally ahead of my Goodreads reading challenge goal! I finished Uprooted (ebook), which I can’t recommend enough for fans of fantasy. Cassie also recommended Columbine (print); I’ll dedicate a full post to my thoughts later this week, but wow. It’s been a while since I carried a book around the house all weekend. This is one of the most difficult books I’ve ever read, but it’s worth it.
blogging // A post about writing and another post about difficult/challenging reads.
exploring // Writing challenges, competitions, and literary magazines.
curating // Dave Cullen’s writing advice.
promoting // This piece about the books we discuss and why. It’s always interesting to me about why certain books resonate with readers over others.
one more thing // I wrote a brief travel piece on hi.co about Matsumoto! Check it out.
