I know, I know. It’s been a while.
I’ve been hanging out over in my new corner of the interwebs: https://www.thewriteipj.com/blog.
If you haven’t checked it out, you’ve missed some new quotes, an installment of Month in Books, and the funnest post I’ve ever put together. Come on over, peeps. I promise you won’t regret it!
Hello, friends! I’ll bet you were expecting an actual quote here, weren’t you? I do have one, just not in this exact spot. But if you hop on over to my new home on the interwebs, you’ll find this week’s Quote to Write By. It’s a good one from Sylvia Plath.
PLUS some new, fun visuals. Curious at all? Come take a peek: https://www.thewriteipj.com/blog.

we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter in any other way.”

Or, you know, when one year closes, another opens.
Somehow it’s 2019, which is simultaneously a statement of fact, a fundamental truth about our world, and (basically) the same equally banal thing I thought a year ago when it became 2018. But it’s also a good reminder that time keeps passing. Before we know it, it’ll be February then May then 2020.
I had a big 2018; some things were wonderful, others devastating, and I survived some gargantuan life transitions that put it all into perspective. It really made me think about my priorities, what I really want for my life, and – most importantly – how the only way that I’ll get where I want to go is to move forward. Small moves. Big ones. But to keep making moves.
To that end, this blog will undergo some changes in the near future, but I’ll talk about that more later because, after all, you’re here to find out how my December reading played out. (Head below the break for more!)
“Description begins in the writer’s imagination, but should finish in the reader’s.”
— Stephen King
“Most of what makes a book ‘good’ is that we are reading it at the right moment for us.”
— Alain de Botton
Here’s what you need to know about November: I traveled a lot (again!), I didn’t read very much (sad face), and even though it was a pretty good month in a lot of ways, I’m delighted it’s over.
But you’ll notice I said I didn’t read much, not that I didn’t read at all. Wonder what the heck that means? Hop on down below to see:
