So I’ve been a little AWOL these past two months, a lot was happening in my day-to-day life and I just didn’t have it in me to write reviews. The little time that I had I wanted to spend on writing fiction, so that’s what I did!
I have four new pieces published!
‘Mae’ in Second Chance Lit, a little story about the carnival and fate.
‘The River Washes’ in Not Deer Magazine, a light-horror piece about revenge.
‘Honeysuckle’ also in Not Deer Magazine, a light-horror piece about something deep in the woods and getting lost.
I’m really proud of all of them so if you’d want to give them a read that’d mean a lot 🙂
But I’m not forgetting about my book blog! I do miss talking about books, and although I haven’t been reading much, I’ve been reading some really cool things. Currently I’m reading The Martian and it’s just so unexpectedly good (I normally hate anything about space) and it deserves a big review. But I’ve noticed I just can’t write full, formal reviews every week, and I think I’m going to change the format of this blog a little.
The posts are going to be more like diary updates (but focused on books, of course), kind of like the ‘What I Read and Wrote Last Month’ posts I’ve been doing, but less structured – but with full reviews in between if I have a lot to say about something. And not every week anymore, but just whenever it takes my fancy. I also think I’m going to do more with my bookstagram soon.
I just need to make everything less perfect, less formal, less structured, so everything is less labor intensive. I’m a big of a perfectionist, but I just can’t do everything :’) But I miss talking about books, so I’ll be back.
