Testing, testing… is this thing on? :)
HI FRIENDS! Oops, let me try that again. Hi, friends! It’s been so long, I got a little excited and almost forgot how to write an appropriate introduction.
I can’t tell you how good it feels to be typing this post, and how much I’ve missed being here with you! January was a complete blur. I worked on the book for some amount of time every single day for 30 days straight. With the exception of a few breaks to go snowshoeing with friends, I was in complete solitude – and I think I had a touch of cabin fever, by the end of it. But coming up to Squamish was the best decision I could have made, because I finished the book! I submitted the first draft of The Year of Less earlier this week, and celebrated with a delicious piece of cake! And then I woke up the next morning and realized how behind I was on email/freelance work/the blog/regular life, haha.
There are so many things I want to share with you, like what the process taught me and how I think it improved my writing (not made evident by this blog post, but hey, cabin fever! I’m talking to real people again!). However, I’m acutely aware of the fact that I should start by giving you an update on how my month of slow mornings worked out…
