February Reading

I got the idea from one of my Twitter writer pals, (Evelyn Alfred) to keep track of the things that I'm reading each month. This list may not be fully inclusive, because there were times when I felt too tired to write down what I read. Some items also don't have links for this very reason, or because they were read in print. In any event, this activity has taught me that I shouldn't feel bad about not fulfilling my Goodreads reading challenges! I won't ever beat myself up again. This doesn't even include Tweets or Facebook posts. (Ha!) I am looking forward to compiling everything at the end of the year to see just how much reading I do (outside of published books). Below is a list of everything I've read for the month of February. Disclaimer: I am attempting to learn all sides of publishing, hence all the publishing articles!

2 client manuscripts (one novel, one nonfiction book)

10 client papers (academic)

10 Black Fox Submissions (I'll get better, I promise!)

8 classic short stories (as review for teaching purposes)
