I've been a little behind with blog posts, but I'm back! I'm in my last semester of college, and my schedule is hectic to say the least, so finding a good time to write and post to my blog has been a big challenge. I've tried posting on different days and at different times, and hopefully I will find a sweet spot again soon.

I finally found time to read Margaret Rogerson's An Enchantment of Ravens, which has been on my reading wish list for months due to Charlie Bowater's beautiful cover art.

I had full intentions of posting to my blog yesterday, but then an unexpected family visit kept me from fulfilling those intentions. Life works in strange ways, but I decided it was more important to spend time with family than to wax poetic about writing and editing. I will be taking a holiday break from my blog to spend time with family and to finish a draft of my senior thesis. Happy holidays and see you in the new year!
I struggled to find inspiration for today's blog post, so instead I wrote a blog post about fighting for inspiration. Check it out.
