For the last couple of years, I haven’t updated this blog almost at all, mostly because I haven’t been reading or writing much, which I consider my blog “theme.” So, after deciding recently that I shouldn’t let that stop me, I started brainstorming other things I could blog about.

When I was in college, I was an English minor. I wasn’t super interested in the lit classes because I’m awful at metaphors and poetry, but I did take all the writing classes that were offered.
It’s been so long since I posted on this blog regularly that I’m not really sure what the “Follow That Rabbit” aesthetic is anymore. I guess books are the closest thing I’ve ever had to a theme. Looking back though, I noticed that I used to write about a lot of other things too.
I really want to start writing again. I miss blogging. But seeing as I haven’t written anything in six months and I’ve started a new full-time job, even when I have time to write, I don’t have the energy. I’m trying really hard to start writing again. Please be patient with me.
One of my favorite writing quotes is, “I’m writing a first draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shoveling sand into a box so that later I can build castles” (Shannon Hale). That’s how I feel this week, especially after spending all of Saturday doing writing sprints and accidentally finishing my steampunk novella. I’m sure there will be lots of places to go back and add things. I know there’s going to be a lot of editing.
I finished it!
