Another week. This one’s a busy one for me–I’m graduating from high school, have a bunch of senior things going on, which might be fun but also exhausting. I’m very ready to graduate and enter a new phase in my life, at this point.
Despite all of this, I also don’t have much to do at school, so plenty of time to read! I still have to finish The Handmaid’s Tale, because this weekend ended up busier than I thought, but I’m enjoying the writing so much that I don’t want to rush it.
After that, I think I want to move onto A Clockwork Orange, because apparently I’m into literary dystopia right now, and I’ve had that one in my possession for a while. Although, my copy of Some Kind of Happiness (see my Waiting on Wednesday post here) should hopefully arrive around its release date on Tuesday, and I will definitely be devouring it!
I’d like to get my post about Madeliene L’Engle’s Austen Family series up this Friday, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen…oh well. But I’ve got thoughts on The Handmaid’s Tale, so it isn’t all bad!
With everything else going on, writing has taken a bit of a backseat. I’m starting to move away from the project I just started back to the one I almost finished before I realized I wanted to restructure the plot…there’s a lot of work to do on that one, and I haven’t decided what I want to keep, or if I should bother jettisoning some of my ideas yet. But I’m thinking that with the extra time I’ll have in the summer, I’ll be able to give it the focus it deserves. It’s definitely the story where my heart is right now. I’m excited for everything ahead.
