Weeknotes: Dec 3-9

I tried out weeknotes this summer and fall over on my blog, but I’m not sure that’s the right place for them — going to try out posting them here on Fridays.

Stuff I did this week

  • spent 9.5 hours on my novel — worked on outlining the next four chapters, which make up one big, very important sequence at the midpoint
  • attended a 2-day virtual conference — two half days is a nice format
  • published my birthday playlists on my website
  • updated my RSS feed and newsletter subscriptions — when I finished, I counted my subscriptions by the gender of the author and was pleasantly surprised that the breakdown was pretty close — ignoring multi-author and anonymous authors, I follow 51 blogs by women and nonbinary authors and 58 written by men
  • took the weekend off working / writing
  • walked with a friend
  • got my teeth cleaned
  • used Teladoc to get a 3-month prescription for my birth control, so I have a countdown to find a new PCP


  • read The Long Game, realized it was a sequel, then read the first book Heated Rivalry
  • started reading Ducks by Kate Beaton
  • still reading Rest is Resistance by Tricia Hersey and The 12 Week Year for Writers by Trevor Thrall
  • added 19 books to my TBR based on end of year recs

Website changes

  • added a land acknowledgment to my about page
  • changed the background color from tan to a soft pink
  • updated and reorganized the menu — added a writing heading
  • created a page to collect pages on this site
  • moved my listening stats onto a page for the year
