Monthly Highlights: November 2022

Dec 01, 2022

Happy December, my friends. It's hard to believe we've reached the final month of 2022, and yet, here we are. November continued the theme of being incredibly busy at the day job, and I've also been navigating a chronic condition flare-up. Yet, somehow, it remained a decently productive writing month, if I do say so myself.

Here's a recap of some of the words I put out onto the web last month, for your reading pleasure.

  • I started a new weekly column on my book blog, Your Book Friend. It's called Book News Corner, and it's a space where I round up a few interesting book-related news stories from the week and give a little commentary. I've really been enjoying it so far. You can check out the intro post here.

  • After a bit of a hiatus, I came back to my weekly Tarot Tuesday column, where I draw a card and provide a mini-reading, plus some journal reflection prompts.

  • Personal essays are back! I wrote nothing but book blog content for all of October, so it felt good to stretch my essay muscles and reflect on the fact that I never really thought of my first chronic condition as anything outside of the normal, because I've had IBS my entire life. You can check out "The Truth Is, I've Always Been a Bit Chronically Ill" in Invisible Illness.

  • Plenty of bookish goodness went up on the book blog, but I'm particuarly pleased with my first-ever holiday shopping guide!

That's about it for November, book friends. There will be some fun updates (hopefully) for December, as I've got a few things in the works that I can't share just yet.

As always, thank you for supporting my work!
