happening // It’s been a productive writing day. I caught up on a couple of 1:1000 pieces and then shifted over to the manuscript, which has been neglected of late. Scott and I had an early lunch and watched a documentary about World War II.
writing // I worked on the shorter pieces throughout the week, but my attention is on the manuscript today.
reading // I finished one book this week, Laura Lippman’s Life Sentences. The audiobook was a nice listen to break up the multi-century epic The Years of Rice and Salt. I had to change it up when I hit the most recent lull, which has mercifully passed.
blogging // My delayed post about difficult/challenging reads, as well as a reading survey post and perhaps some reviews!
exploring // Wordpress features. I’ve also been neglecting the aesthetics/function of the blog, and it’s time for some tweaking.
curating // Gender Studies books! Long-time readers may recall I double-majored in History and Gender Studies. I’ve found myself yearning for more specificity and a deeper exploration of feminist theories and themes. I also felt that my academic exploration of intersectionality was limited, with the notable exception of Gloria Anzaldúa’s Borderlands.
promoting // Serial Box, a new service for serial fiction. It’s a literary collaboration that aims to produce a 10-16 episode narrative (or “season”). The first offering is Bookburners, which sounds phenomenal: Magic is real, and hungry—trapped in ancient texts and artifacts, only a few who discover it survive to fight back. Detective Sal Brooks is a survivor. Her brother wasn’t so lucky. Freshly awake to just what dangerous are lurking, she joins a Vatican-backed black-ops anti-magic squad—but the demons she’s hunting may be hunting her in turn.
one more thing // It’s been three months since Scott and I got married! Man, time flies.
