May started much better than any other month in 2019. I carved out some time late in the day to get reading done, even if I hadn’t finished my email or any of the other work I had. I was really feeling the lack of leisure reading time and it was starting to have an impact on my writing. Lots of good reading this month, […]
I’m line editing another Fiction River, so some of my reading time has been taken up with that. And I had a workshop at the end of the month, the Business Master Class, which kept us all going 24/7 (okay, there was a little sleeping in the middle of it all). So less reading time than I wanted.

I made a bunch of notes throughout June, but I’m deep in the Retrieval Artist, plus life was kicking me in the butt, so I didn’t have time to write everything up the way I usually do. I ended up more than two weeks late posting this because it’s longer than the usual list, and it […]

This book is just one example of how we both celebrate our differences. He found it, and knew it was right for me…
I read a lot of short fiction in May. I didn’t finish a lot of books. I dipped in and out of anthologies, collections, magazines, and individual short Kindle titles. I was exhausted, a lot happened this month, and I couldn’t sustain concentration long enough to finish many novels. In fact, I often forgot I was reading something until I opened my Kindle or my […]
