This Month's Goals
I Want to Read:

  • The Mirror Empire by Kameron Hurley
  • A Slip of the Keyboard by Terry Pratchett
  • The Art of Language Invention by David J. Peterson

I Want to Write:

  • The Essay With All The Numbers Draft 7 (or so)
  • 2,500 words of fiction

I asked a good friend of mine to select this month’s reads from my immediate remaining TBR pile. I did not expect to end up with two nonfiction books, but here we are. I’m actually looking forward to them, but I expect this month’s reading to be a slightly tougher challenge than the other months. The Mirror Empire is a chunkster and I’m a slow nonfiction reader at the best of times. We’ll see how it goes.

Writing-wise, I’ll be focusing the month on redrafting an essay which will, hopefully, come out later this month. I’m superexcited about sharing it with you all and I’ve been so honoured and humbled by Ana and Thea working with me to make it sparkle its brightest. 😀 That shouldn’t actually take all month – ideally I’d like it done in the first week – but you never know. I’m not taking chances. This is what I’m working on this month and everything else is a bonus.

Except I do want a tiny bit of fiction writing because fiction is good for me. 😀 And that’s what I’m planning for next month. A looooot of nonfiction. 😀
