Hello folks. It's been a while, and frankly, I don't have much to say about writing or books at all, as I have had a super duper busy month and haven't finished reading or writing anything so far in February. However, as I have had a super duper busy month, I do have other things to say.
I have some writerly good news and some writerly bad news.
The good news:
My short story "The Empty Nest" is going to be published in the Literary Lab's Variations on a Theme Anthology! As evidenced here. I am so excited and so honored! I've never been published in anything before, so this is really awesome. I'll tell you more about it when I know more about it.
The bad news:
Something happened to my computer, I think a virus, and my entire hard drive was wiped clean. Luckily I had all my big projects backed up on a flash drive, but I lost the 15,000 words that I had written in the past two months. It was tragic. But let my tragedy be a lesson for you: always back up your work, unless you want to be forced to start over on some of your proudest work.
So no new reading or writing done so far this month, but I am going to be participating in the Fourth Writers' Platform Building Campaign coming up soon, and I'm going to have my Books I Read This Month at the end of February, but it will probably more likely be The Book I Read This Month.
