Hey everyone! New month, new update!
I’m not sure how it went for you guys, but August absolutely flew past on my end. As you’ve probably seen in a couple of places, the final week of the month saw me flying out to Armenia to start a four month stint as a volunteer with Birthright Armenia, and I have no doubt that the preparation for that played a large part in the rate at which time passed.
Unfortunately, it also meant I was a lot less productive writing-wise than in July, only finishing one short story (Grey Dog Inn) and not getting a whole lot farther on my rewrite for The Seven. So far, as I’m settling in to my homestay and getting used to a new schedule, it’s looking like I’ll have a fair amount of time for writing in between all of the getting out and living and learning and volunteering, but only time will tell.
As it stands right now, I’ve got part of a short story written, which will hopefully be ready to go up sometime early this week. If I’m really lucky/productive/my brain doesn’t explode while trying to learn Armenian, I may even manage to make up the week I missed due to travel by getting something ready to go up next week as well, but I make no promises.
Anyway, that’s all the news from August! Let me know down below in the comments if you’ve got any questions, curiosities, or requests for stories. Until next time!
