Reading: The Artemis Fowl series, The Walking Dead volumes 1 & 2, loads of Bruce Coville short stories.
Discovering: A new favorite flavor of tea—jasmine.
Buying: Gel pens.
Rediscovering: How hard writing can be. It’s not something you ever really forget, but every so often it comes back full force to punch you in the gut.
Doodling: All over church bulletins. It actually helps me concentrate during sermons.
Wishing: For hot cocoa.
Waiting: For autumn. Especially October. Especially Halloween.
Finishing: Editing a ghost story. I’m still not completely satisfied with it—I never am—but it feels good to be finishing something.
Journaling: Almost every day. My entries are as boring as you’d expect.
Listening: To “Scrooge” from A Muppet Christmas Carol. Best. Song. Ever.
Starting: To use a planner. We’ll see how it goes.
