I Want to Read:
- A book
I Want to Write:
Well. I did rather well on both fronts this month. Per doctor’s orders, I tried very hard to make this month all about me. Which means I more or less spent the first half of the month curled up around a book and read, well, a lot of them. 11 according to my statistics. Most well still novelettes or novellas in length, but I had a lot of fun! Also OMG! Reading! I missed you, reading!
March, you may recall, was all about the print editions. I’ve just managed to squeak past getting the proofs I wanted all done and ready. They’ll be second proofs for Sea Foam and Silence and A Promise Broken and a first proof for Feather by Feather and Other Stories. This should be the only time I order all the proofs all at once, but we’ll see how they look. (Yes, there will be pictures eventually.)
Anyway, that’s where a good chunk of my March went to. It also went to a lot of nonfiction writing. Notably to the Book Talk posts and revamping the Feather by Feather and Other Stories non-fiction content. I’m… really impressed with that because I wasn’t expecting to get a lot written. Those Book Talk posts really add up! O_O
I also spent some time trying to get personal life things sorted and dealt with with varying levels of success. Sadly there is not much one can do about grief except, well, grieve. It wasn’t entirely unexpected, but it will always hit and it happened at a time that was already emotionally quite rough for similar reasons, so.
I’ve spent the rest of the month trying to focus on the positive. So, to that end, I have finished the first bout of proofs for this year! They’ll probably take forever to arrive, mind you, but yay good things!
