It’s been quite a while since I updated this blog.
In short: I’ve been busy.
At the beginning of December, I kept telling myself I was going to post one long wrap-up for the year. I outlined it and everything, but then I ended up working full-time (not by choice) and having to do a lot of makeup work for classes.
To be honest, it’s just been a rough few months. I haven’t had the mental energy to put effort into working on this blog like I want to.
But, while I haven’t been working on the blog as much, I’ve been spending more and more time in Enaxelet (the world that book one of #tIRS takes place in). The progress has been rather slow some weeks, others I accomplish a lot. Yesterday, I finally crossed the 70k word mark, and, as soon as I finish the current chapter, Part One of the book will officially be done, and I’ll be over halfway through it. My goal is still to finish the rough draft by the end of May, but school is still a priority for me, and I really need a summer after this last year.
I’ve also been reading a lot more. My goal for 2021 is to read 75 books. I know. Ambitious. But I’ve already finished seven. It’s not nearly as many as I need to have read according to Goodreads, but it’s nearly half of what I read last year (I only read 20 books, mainly because my workload increased when the pandemic hit, not decreased).
I want to update this blog more. I really do. But I can’t make promises that I won’t be able to keep. I have sent out newsletters about two or three times since the last post on the blog. So if you want to get more frequent updates, I suggest you subscribe to that. I also post various updates on my reading and writing on my social media pages.
I hope y’all’s years have gone well so far! What are you guys reading? Do you have any goals for your writing or reading? Let me know in the comments below!
