Oh in all the heavenly lands, they’ve done it again, Tobias sighed and kicked at the rock he’d been staring at for the last few minutes. When would she realize…

More about what/who Tobias is watching could be alluded to here. Set it up so that it’s shown/hinted at here that the female human (Tobias’s charge) is the one ended the RELATIONSHIP and then the ending won’t have to be so spelled out.

His thought trailed off and he slumped against the wall he was leaning againt. He looked up at the sky, “I don’t know what you see in these humans sometimes,” he muttered.

He pushed himself up from the wall, stumbled on the rock he’d just kicked—“Oh good gravy!”—and made his way across the park to the bench his charge was sitting on.

What I Read This Fall

The books I read in September, October, and November 2022

These posts are a labor of love. The Fall installment of this series is late, but I’m proud of myself for still putting it here. And! It means I stuck with something for a full year! =D I am resolved to write these posts as I read through this year. It’ll ease the labor of them and I can still maintain the level of detail I want to.

I read 12 books this season. Here are they all are in order from first to last:

  • Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King
  • Prismatic: Havok Season 5 by Havok Authors
  • Vox Machina: Kith & Kin by Critical Role and Marieke Nijkamp
  • Redefining Anxiety by John Delony
  • We Are Inevitable by Gayle Forman

The Darling Files // Behind the Scenes of my First-ever Inktober

I love social media challenges. 30-day Instagram prompts or one-word prompts, Meet The Author prompts, etc. Inktober is no exception. Especially since I love art, looking at it and buying it and adding it my wish list.

Every year for the past few years now a Writetober challenge has been released. The idea is to write one 50-word story a day and include the word from that prompt.

This year I am (finally?) combing the two. My default is to say that I’m an overachiever. I mean, I decided this last minute. I didn’t write either of the prompts down ahead of time. Or plan anything out before. My time could better be spent prepping for NanNoWriMo. I did just start a new part-time job last week, and Ant and I are finally feeling better and settling back into a new routine of home life.

But really, I’m tired of overthinking what to post on my social media accounts.

What I Read This Winter

Where I share the books I’ve read from December 2021 through February 2022.

I’ve been doing much better reading the books Ant and I own during these past three months. I also started creating an Excel spreadsheet to catalogue our library. It’s a slow project, but I’m excited to see it through.

My reading goal was to complete 54 books. Thanks to my month off in December I came very close to achieving my goal, but due to our Bermuda Triangle week and spending more time with Monica, watching Netflix movies (Love Hard and tick tick…BOOM), Survivor, and playing board games, I fell just three books short—but I think it was the better option 🙂
