Yep, the reading slump is still clinging to me. I’ve been trying to get through Drachenfels for over a month now and I’m only just managing to keep up with my reviews. I might have to go back to two reviews a week if this continues.
On the plus side, I won Camp Nanonwrimo! This time, I tried the ‘write-the-novel-as-a-short-story’ trick with my second novel. I can’t say it worked as well this time but it was an interesting exercise. I also managed to polish a couple of short stories to submit-able quality. Or, Scribophile quality, at any rate.
