Weekly Update: July 5-11 2021

Happy Sunday, bibliophiles! I hope this week has treated you all well.

This week’s been fairly quiet – lots of reading indoors and outdoors. I got through all of the books that I bought last week, plus a couple on my Kindle and a bit of my summer reading. Of course, I had another unfortunate DNF, which…why did I escape them in the first half of the year, only to have all of them in July?

Writing-wise, everything’s going fairly smooth! I think I’m…oh, maybe a third of the way through where I want to be with my WIP, and my word count’s steadily been going up!

Other than that, I’ve just been making some fan art, volunteering at the library, watching Loki, hiking, and watching one of my close friends get through Fargo. (She’s coming up on one of my favorite twists in season 3…) I also had my first in-person guitar lesson since the pandemic started, and it’s so good to be back!

    1. Oh I loved it! It’s a super heavy read, so I’d recommend reading it when you’re in a good place mentally. It’s dark and powerful stuff. My only complaint is the writing – it’s good writing, but Margaret Atwood tended to overextend her metaphors, and her writing seemed a little bit too flowery for such dark subject matter, if that makes any sense. It’s absolutely worth a read, though
