It’s been a busy one. But aren't they all?
It was a Cambodia-centric month when it came to my writing.
In “Cambodia’s Water World” for Travelife Canada, I wrote about Cambodia’s biggest holiday.
I provided my Battambang favourites for Notabilia (and am still craving the dumplings).
I wrote “Landmines” for Proximity Magazine’s issue on home, which discusses leaving Cambodia and returning to Canada.
There’s always too much to read and not enough time. Here are some of the highlights of what I did get through.
This blog post on how to keep writing when no one gives a sh*t provides excellent advice on not only how to keep writing, but how to keep doing anything when it seems no one cares.
“A Person Can’t Be ‘Diverse’” from the Atlantic shows how language matters.
I also started and finished Jane Smiley’s novel “A Thousand Acres,” which I could hardly put down. Highly recommended.
Besides the reading and writing, I did a little mini re-design of my website. Check out the shiny new homepage and don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter.
I also did some branding and writing work for various clients, and launched #writeshopwed in Ottawa. It’s inspired by something that was launched in Toronto last year; read the Medium post and get in touch if you want more details on #writeshopwed version 2 in Ottawa.
What have you been writing, reading and doing this month? I would love to hear in the comments below.
