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.

    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!

      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.
