Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern I loved Morgenstern’s first novel, The Night Circus, when my cousin gave it to me for Christmas when I was in high school. So when I saw on Goodreads that she had published another, The Starless Sea, the memories of how much I enjoyed The Night Circus came to

Be More Joyful – Monthly Goals

It’s that time of the month again – time for my list of monthly goals! This month, I want to start – and restart – positive habits. I think these habits will bring much more joy into my life, and I am ready to receive it.  Work out (nearly) every day. Before November, I had

Begin Again

I’m back into the writing. I’m back to working on the novel, still untitled. I don’t think I’m far enough into it to figure out the overarching theme of it, and I haven’t written anything clever enough to pick it for a title. Hence, it remains unnamed. Aye, that’s the rub. I keep seeing, on

July Goals and Update on Past Ones

Well all, it’s a new month, and you know what that can sometimes mean: it’s time for my monthly goals! I know I didn’t do a June goals post, so I thought I’d update you about how the last month I posted my goals, April, went.  If you’re a regular reader, you probably know that

Monthly Goals for March

A new month has begun. How is it March already?! Here in the DC area March is practically spring, though yesterday and today have been bitterly cold. Next week should be better, and hopefully from there, as they said in the new Mary Poppins movie, there’s nowhere to go but up. I have a few

Update – 24 January 2019

I’ve slowly been working on the novel, still as yet untitled. One day I wrote five pages in half an hour, and the next I wrote a half a page in an hour. But I am doing it. I am writing. I’ve changed my main character’s name again. Cora didn’t quite fit. She’s Sofia now,

Reading

In addition to rewriting the book I started, I’ve been doing a lot of reading. Some of it, unfortunately, has been rereading. But, sometimes you just need the company of an old friend. Mine are Rilla Blythe and Harry Potter. The new books I’ve been reading (or, at least, new to me) are Tony’s Wife

Walking the Walk

Well, I do a really good job of talking the talk. I’m trying to actually walk the walk. Yes, you guessed it. I’m writing. Well, I do write every day. But, I bounce around projects as I am inspired to write them. Sometimes I create even more projects for myself, which is silly, since I

Unintelligible

Since I got to UNCG, I’ve intended to submit some writing or photography to the Coraddi, the on-campus student-run literary and art magazine. I picked one up at the festival on Tate street this past weekend, and just sat down and raced my way through it. But now that I’ve consumed the whole thing, I’m

The Block and the Sludge and the Muse

The block is coming. The writer’s block. I know what needs to be written, for the most part. The thing to do is to write through this less-inspired moment until I reach inspiration again. The only way to reach inspiration is not to rest and expect the mountain to come to Mohammed. Resting is all

Frustration

My story is coming along well. Vivien (I’ve changed the spelling of her name) and her adventures are slowly gearing up to begin. I’m on chapter five, and I’ve written over thirty pages total. Still, I feel the story is very much lacking. Or, not so much very lacking as slightly lacking, which is somehow
