Sorry if I’m being a little inactive lately… I think I wasn’t ready to work at the pace I had set, so now I have to adjust things for next week and I fell a little behind. I’m not disappointed, these things happen and I know I will catch up soon 💪🏻

Meanwhile, the only pics I’ve taken are of the books I’m reading 📖

Does anyone else find that their general writing style alters a little depending on what book you’re reading at that moment, if you’re enjoying it, and takes on some of its characteristics?  Because I found myself using less punctuation and shorter sentences while I was reading modernist novels such as Mrs Dalloway and The Great Gatsby; and now I’m reading Pride and Prejudice my sentences have got longer again… 

I still abuse the semi-colon in full force though, since Woolf and Austen do too so I feel justified lmao

Also important for this list: The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner and “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
