Oh wow, just noticed it's been over a month since I last posted anything here. Oops? Life became Very Busy, and this site was the first thing to get shuffled to the wayside... Here's a list of the writing-related things I accomplished in that time:
  • 10/15: graduate school packet (latest chapter of my WIP + essays on two books) delivered to my mentor
  • 11/1: manuscripts for January workshops
  • 11/2: a reading in front of actual people (which is why I now have an Events page!)

...and another grad school packet due on 11/15, which if you do the math comes out to being this Friday. Add into this various irrelevant work-stuff, and yes, I've been busy.

Oh, and NaNoWriMo is this month. I always make an account, but don't have quite enough competitive spirit to stick to it -- still, good luck to all those making a more serious attempt! I applaud your efforts. Now get back to writing.

Anyway, in all this month that I've spent not writing blog posts, I have had time to read some. So, without further ado, here are six of the best articles I've come across lately (listed after the break, in approximate order of the writing process)...

I posted the feminist essay on The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms that I warned you was coming last week:

First posts to the Reading and Writing blogs have gone up! They're both responses to books, and each includes a few recommendations for further reading, so check them out:

...and most of the basic content is in place (About, Current Projects, Shop, and general layout). Next step will be finding images to use for headers and banners and whatnot, and a photo for the bio, and then I'll actually start creating blog content! In the meantime, I'll keep track of all notable updates to the site here, so any of you somehow reading this who want to keep abreast of my progress, that handy little RSS feed in the sidebar of this page (or in the top-right corner) will save you all the effort.
