Month-End Update: November 2015

Unfortunately (though, fortunately, for the late hour at which I’m writing), I don’t have much to report for November. Mostly, this is because I had an extended holiday to attend an academic conference with my husband and also go home to visit my friends and family after a long, arduous four months in Connecticut. Therefore, in the spirit of not having much to say, I’ll keep this one short and sweet.

  1. I always enjoy these updates. I appreciate your honesty about what you intended to get done vs. what really happened. It’s a good eye into what the writing life is like for someone else and they make me feel better about my own progress. I should steal this idea and publicly report from time to time like you do.

    • Thank you! Part of them is selfish, to make my own self feel better, because it often feels like I did nothing at all until I write it out. But, part of it is also to inspire others, so I’m glad that goal is being met, too!

    Still seems like a pretty productive month! And how are you finding On Writing? I confess I really enjoyed it 🙂

    • I just finished it today, and I really enjoyed it. There were a few ideas I didn’t agree with, but overall, I found it to be the kind of blunt, nothing-held-back guide I hope I have the authority to write one day. Yet, it was still very positive and uplifting. I gave it 5 stars.
