So far, July has been a busy and productive month, especially creatively. And, especially compared to the last few months coming. The writing is shaking loose again, and the flow comes more naturally. Fingers crossed that continues. It feels good. Even when I’m tired by the end of the day, it feels good.

How is your July coming?


  1. My July has had highs and lows so far. Just hanging in there,

  2. […] the weekend! There’s a mid-month check in over on the GDR site from […]

  3. The heat and humidity don’t help, either.
