I read a lot this month. I wrote almost nothing but I read like crazy.
Good day, friends! I hope you had a great Christmas/holiday/New Year’s. Now that 2018 is over, I wanted to take a look at everything I read this year. What did I love? What did I hate? Let’s find out! Continue reading “2018 in Review”
Hi friends, I hop you had a great weekend. Since I was gone for about a month, I’m trying to catch up on blogs. So I figured it would be fun this week to talk about what I’ve recently purchased at Half Price and on the Kindle store.
I’m a writer, as you know. I also have a day job, which you also know. So this book seemed like a good way to spend a bit of time. I checked it out from the library, no surprise there, and I thought it was pretty interesting so I figured I’d talk about it.
Alright, part 2 here we go. In my last blog about 1984, we talked about the double speak/double think that’s reflected in both the recent presidential election. Maybe it isn’t fair to just focus on the current president, because I’m sure politicians from all walks of life have been guilty of falsehoods since politics became a thing, but I digress.
Hello friendos. It’s the beginning of June, which means my last round of bi-monthly goals has come to an end. Let’s see how we did! Make sure you check out my original post for more details on this round of goals.
A note before I start: I know this is the first time I’ve posted in a week. I want to thank all of you for being here, and for allowing me to take a few days off for the holiday and to celebrate some special anniversaries. We’re back to our regular schedule!
Earlier this year, I was reading an interesting article about how sales of the book 1984 had skyrocketed since the Trump election. While the article didn’t say why this was the case, I had some ideas, so I decided to read it again myself.
Hello, friends! It’s time for another book review! Hooray! Today we’re talking about The Neuromancer by William Gibson. I just recently read this book in January of this year after having it on my to read list for a solid decade. It might have been longer, actually, because I remember buying my copy at Borders when I was in high school. Let’s all have a moment of silence for the loss of the beloved Borders.
I’m going to make a confession. I am having a really long week and, although I have some blog ideas in the wings, I just can’t commit to sitting down this morning and writing one of them. I do want to get up a blog as I usually do on Friday, so I thought maybe a life update was in order.
I have anxiety. Really bad, crippling, life controlling anxiety.
