As many of you know, I am currently finishing my first year teaching. Those of you who teach were probably not surprised that my blog stopped updating. It was one of many things I stopped doing as I got a handle on my new job.
I am finally finding pockets of time to do the things I love again: reading, blogging, writing. Sadly, I’ve found that all of these skills have atrophied over the last several months. I sat down to work on my novel and could barely sit through a paragraph, and when I tried to log in to my update my blog, I had so many failed password attempts that my IP was blocked.
While I’m scared to start over with things that used to feel easy, I’m excited, too. I just have to remember to give myself a break. I don’t have to do everything, all at once, right this second.
And, since this is a book blog, here are some books I recently read that I am very excited to review soon:
Feel free to fill me in on things I may have missed.
