August 2017 Writing Update

In the past six weeks, I've traveled around Europe (Iceland! England! Italy!), sunk into the depths of writerly despair, and eaten Greenland shark. It was not good.

In the past month, I haven’t written, and I haven’t posted. Sure, I’ve been active on social media, but the novel and the blog? Dead in the water. But I swear I have good explanations for both. I didn’t post on this blog because my website’s backend code had a bug in it that prevented […]
