Writing Activity, June 2021

One of my 2021 goals is to keep a list of my writing activity for each month.

Keep wearing masks!)–and partly asContinue reading “Writing Activity, June 2021”

In the new year, I’ve decided to do something similar withContinue reading “Writing Activity, January 2021”

This practice was partly for myself, so that I could make sure I was using the time productively, and partlyContinue reading “Sabbatical Productivity: July”
