  • Inspired | December 2018

    Every month, I share the articles and sites that I found most interesting. Here’s what caught my attention in December.

    I hope everyone’s having a great couple of weeks. I’ve been: eating | indulging | figuring | making | feeling | craving | accepting | trying | looking | taking

    Things are going to be slow around here for the next two weeks. Regularly scheduled programming (snapshots, inspired) will continue as usual, and I’m not disappearing entirely, but I won’t be around very much, and there probably won’t be any posts outside the regular ones.

    I’ll be back on January 7. In the meantime, Happy Holidays if you celebrate! I hope you have a fantastic few weeks!

  • The 2018 Reboot | Finale

    Technically speaking September was only four months ago.

    But 2018 has been the longest year ever, and it feels like it was at least two years ago that I decided I needed to make some changes.

    Back in August, every project I was working on had either stalled or was moving too slowly to see any real progress. My motivation had plummeted. I was in a rut, and I needed to get myself out of that rut, and I needed to figure out how to avoid falling into it again. And so in September, I came up with a short list of things I wanted to do by the end of the year. They weren’t huge goals – and they definitely weren’t dramatic – but it was about building a system that could support my bigger goals going into the future.

    We’re fast approaching the end of the year, so it’s time to look back at how (and whether) my reboot has worked, and where I’m going from here.

    I can’t believe how fast the last two weeks have gone. I’ve been: feeling | watching | solving | making | hemming | trying | listening | thinking | muting | wondering

  • The 2018 Reboot | Week 14 Check-In

    Almost there!

    Next week, I’m going to do a complete end-of-year report on this reboot, looking at what did and didn’t work over the past few months, and what it means for the future.

    For now, I’m just going to do a quick update on how I’ve been doing this week.

  • NaNoWriMo 2018 Diary | Post-Mortem

    It’s been a week since NaNoWriMo ended, and I haven’t looked at – haven’t even thought about – my draft since then.

    That’s a good thing.

  • The 2018 Reboot | Week 13 Check-In

    It’s really starting to hit me, how close we are to the end of the year – and how close I am to the end of this little(?) project.

    I’m also realizing that I never really set a clear end-date for this, beyond “the end of the year.”

  • Sketchbook #38

    … well, that was a month, wasn’t it?

    Leaving aside NaNoWriMo for now (since I’ve been talking about it all month, and I’ll be talking about it even more on Friday; but if you do want a recap: the story has been fighting me, but I made it through), it… wasn’t too bad.

    Not great, obviously. I didn’t get to work on a lot of things that I’d hoped to spend time on in November, like the next round of revisions on The Black Sun. Or photography.

    But last month, I said that my mission for November was to sit down and think about what I really want to accomplish, in both writing and photography. Everything else aside, if I did that – or if I made significant progress with that – the month would be a good one.

  • Snapshot #115 | 10 Things for 2 December 2018

    The last few weeks have been exhausting. Seriously. I’ve been: surviving | making | missing | enduring | looking | craving | going | feeling | collecting | wishing
