Writing Journal Update 9
Note: And I dropped a class so I could have more time. I’ve freed up about fifteen, sixteen hours in my schedule, meaning I can turn my attention to my hobbies and editing when not working on homework.
College and Life Updates: I finished my literary analysis of race in World of Warcraft, which was…enlightening. It was an extremely fun assignment, and I may now have a passion for recording myself while gaming. I may or may not start posting videos of myself playing Dragon Age: Inquisition and Divinity: Original Sin II. My husband and I went on our first trip/adventure in months to an orchard so we could pick apples, and I have to admit that it was a relief. I didn’t realize how much I missed our day trips.
“The Day Caroline Bloomed”: This is the red algae story I intend on putting in my short horror collection. It’s still in the draft stage and needs to be workshopped, but I’m hopeful! It details a woman in a toxic relationship that enters into a new, strange toxic relationship.
“Untitled Dark Fantasy Piece”: I have written an entire plot outline for this, and I will have the first draft done by mid-October. Stay tuned!
“Untitled Horror Story”: Another plant horror story set in the South. The plant of choice is roses, and the theme centers around the Southern idea of women being fragile, beautiful objects.
Publishing News: “Of Anxiety” will be published next month in Breath and Shadow. The link will be up soon.
Personal Readings: Devil’s Creek by Todd Keisling (horror, novel), readings from Exigencies edited by Richard Thomas (dark fiction, anthology), The City We Became by N. K. Jemisin (audiobook, fantasy), The Daughters of Foxcote Manor by Eve Chase
Finished: Alice Isn’t Dead by Joseph Fink (horror, audiobook), The Hunger by Alma Katsu (horror, novel)
Now that I’m back, blog posts are a priority. I may experiment with the type of posting I want to do, though writing and anxiety will still be major things I talk about. Thanks for sticking with me.
