    September Reads: 2019

    Happy October! 😀 You guys. This was such a great month for reading. I just can’t.

    Being Like Super Productive & Whatever

    Usually when it’s crunch time, meaning I’m almost done with a story, I will fill every available hour of my day with writing. As a result, I burn myself out and take a few weeks off to recover. What this does, however, is make it super hard to sit down and start writing again. Like, super hard. And that 15 day break turns into two months. Meaning I’m far less productive than I could be. A kind of, what I would call “normal” productivity that I can pull off without stressing myself out. Not to long ago, a poetry writing friend of mine told me about a book she found…
