Every month, I share the articles and sites that I found most interesting. Here’s what caught my attention in October: alternate histories, fighting distraction, spoilers!, finding hope in 2020, and more.
For the first time since March, I was able to start thinking about fiction again, and start taking photos again, and in the last two weeks or so I’ve even been able to concentrate for more than ten minutes at a time. This was the month that I started to feel like an actual, functional, creative, human being again.
That doesn’t mean it’s been easy.

I generally plan to post these creative roundups on the last Monday of each month.
You might’ve noticed that this isn’t the last Monday of the month. Or that I didn’t actually do a post like this at the end of December.
I’ll be honest: I was busy in December, and blogging wasn’t my highest priority in January. The political situation in the States is still taking up most of my attention, and everything that’s left has been devoted to finishing the novel draft that I started in November and starting the two photo projects I’ve decided to tackle this year.
Ok! The last two weeks! I’ve been: feeling | finishing | watching | wishing | looking | caffeinating | starting | trying | thinking | realizing
So! This month!
My creative life has pretty much been taken over by NaNoWriMo. Which isn’t a bad thing – I kind of knew that was going to happen, and I planned accordingly. But it doesn’t really leave me with a lot to talk about here. Despite the cold that knocked me back last week, I’m on track to reach 50,000 words by the end of the month (!!), but I’m only about two thirds of the way through the story. I’m going to keep writing until it’s done (hopefully sometime before Christmas), and I’ll have some kind of postmortem for you then. Right now, I’m still too close to the whole thing to really talk about it much.
The last two weeks, I’ve been: making | chipping | falling | finalizing | craving | listening | slipping | processing | trying | thinking
It finally feels like summer! And I’m still kind of stuck, creatively! Even so, I’ve been: changing | getting | making | doing | feeling | drinking | eating | trying | reaching | filling
