I’m reading five books currently and loving them, but my big reading project currently is the original Wonder Woman comics. The first collection is 700+ pages, and I’m about halfway through. Lots of random plot-lines, nonsequiturs, and political incorrectness, but thoroughly enjoying it nonetheless.

We’ll see what the next big project will be, but I’m writing shorter stuff for now and enjoying it.

Days that I plan to write this upcoming month: 30! I’m jumping back into the #AugWritingChallenge on Twitter, which is always my favorite place to get motivated. Such a great group. 500 words a day writing or 1 hour a day editing. Details here if you want to join.
