Limbo (Sunday Post #16)

https://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/the-sunday-post-meme

It's been a while since I've linked up for this, an unfortunate consequence of me posting my monthly wrap-ups on the final day of the month instead of the first Sunday, but I've handed in my last ever assignments so it seemed like a good time to take a look at where I am now. 

Meanwhile, in the Real World...

I'm kind of in limbo at the moment. On the one hand, I'm searching for jobs. On the other, term hasn't technically ended yet so I'm still a student. Assignments are all handed in now and, honestly, I'm done. If I ever have to write another essay, it'll be too soon. All I can do now is wait and see what's coming next.

So what does that mean for this blog?

Well, I'll have to change my tag line.

(Obviously.)

But other than that? Right now, I'm thinking nothing. I wanted to jazz it up a bit, but I don't like change and didn't want to do anything too extreme so please enjoy the stock picture of a forest that Blogger provided for the background.

News from the Reading Front

I'm joining another reading challenge.

(We do not need to join another reading challenge.)

Your opinion is noted. 

As I was saying, I'm signing up for Beat the Backlist 2018

(Dammit!)

I always read far more backlist books than I do new releases, so I can't believe I missed this one in December. I'm aiming to read 30 backlist books.

I CAN WRITE WHAT I WANT AGAIN!

For real this time. I have a short story I need to edit for an anthology that the society I'm in puts out every year, but after that I can go back to focusing on the first draft of my story. I've been reading through some of the latest chapters (mainly to reacquaint myself with where I'm at) and, oh my God, it needs so much editing.

But who cares?

I can work on it again. Reguarly. That's all that really matters.
