Heh… I’m not even going to look at how long it’s been since I last published an update.
Partly, I’ve been quiet because… well, I haven’t had anything to report. My brother is still acting as my test-reader. His comments have been insightful and indispensable. He probably won’t see this, but if he does: THANK YOU!
During this time, I’m putting together a list of possible literary agents.
But that’s about it. Like I said, this part of the writing process is a marathon of the same until I get to… *gulp*… sending off queries.
So yes, I haven’t updated partly because I didn’t want to bore you with the same message over and over again.
But also because… I’ve been busy!
For my library’s Book Club, I finished a phenomenal book—Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. Any praise I can give this book will pale in comparison to the experience of reading it. The book made it into the number four slot of my Favorite Books of All-Time (because, yes, I’m the type of nerd who makes lists of everything).
Our library is also getting new carpet. And… yeah, prepping for that is a project-and-a-half. It will look amazing when it’s done though!
I’ve also started reading The Count of Monte Cristo—unabridged, because I’m insane. (As of writing this, I’m on page 430 and 1/3 through the book.)
So yes, I’ve been busy: as a reader, as a librarian—but still as a writer as well.
And that’s what matters, I suppose—pushing ahead. After all… there’s nothing waiting behind us.
