Some thoughts

  • The end of September snuck up on me. Between moving and various family activities, I haven’t had much time to read or post.
  • I enjoyed writing about my approach to minimalism.
  • I finished a 3,000+ word story for The Write Stuff! It’s the longest thing I’ve written since college.

Looking ahead

  • I’ve been doing some soul-searching and trying to answer the “Where do you see yourself in five years” question. It’s frustrating, and I’d love to get some next steps in place for my goals.
  • I want to finish out The Write Stuff challenge. I need to knuckle down and focus on brainstorming.

How’s your reading going this year?
