So at this point no, but never say never. :)

Also, I can't imagine reading and writing in another language at all, so I'm really impressed by your English!

Recovering from Burnout: 2019 by the Numbers

Hello, friends! First, a bit of housekeeping: as is probably obvious at this point, I have stopped pretending that I want to blog. I like doing this annual post about word count, because it’s the sort of thing I find interesting to read, but other than that I plan to only use this place when I have actual news.

That said, I have started sending a monthly newsletter-type-thing! It’s usually person

There were a lot of interesting things in this book and it definitely didn't go where I expected, which is great, but it felt like the characters changed really abruptly to me and I wish their developing feelings had been given more time to breathe.
Docile by K.M. Szpara
"the premise was interesting and i appreciated some of the worldbuilding details (i.e. everyone in poorer communities wearing branded t-shirts because they were available for free, thus further emphasizing the ubiquitous, inescapable nature of capital" Read more of this review »

A nice way to end the series -- the emotional catharsis around family stuff was much more central than the romance, but luckily I LOVE family stuff.

Oh wow, I liked this one EVEN MORE than the first -- the hero is assumed to be a criminal but he's actually just large and awkward and absolutely devoted to the heroine (who is also great). Basically, I'm in on any character who at one point is told, ...more

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
