On Reading: July

July kicked my ass, like hardcore parkour kicked my ass.
I moved this month, yay! Now I can’t find anything, boo!
I read three books, yay! I wish it had been more, boo!
I finished my anthology story edits and am resubmitting to the editor, yay! I haven’t even started on my WotF Q4 story, boo!
I haven’t heard back about my WotF Q2 story yet, yay? I’ve heard the finalists have already been notified, so at this point I can only hope for another HM, boo!
And I think that covers that…now on to the books!

On Reading: February

February was, overall, a pretty good month. I had family in town to help take care of my convalescing sister, and it was wonderful to have them here visiting, but sad too because I hated to see them go. It made me realize how much I miss living closer to my family and my friends back home. Which has turned my thoughts as of late to maybe making some geographical changes.

In fact, changes in my life, (in many different forms) are coming. There have been signs from the Universe directing me towards certain decisions.
Well, I’m listening Universe – I’m listening!
