A Month in the Life, May

Ah May. May was a month, no? It was almost as if the tides were changing, not just on a global level but all the way down to the personal level. Had we ebbed too long in one direction? Perhaps. But these changes also are time, and that time was time away from art.

This is not an excuse, simply a setting.

There was art in May. Some pictures, some doodles, and some writing. I focused mainly on writing my Dr Who story, which is now at 45,000 words, nearly 8k of those were written in May, making it the longest fiction I’ve written. There is more coming too. That is itself an accomplishment and something I am happy about. Sure it isn’t as easy to show off as a month of fish or thirty poems, but still is something I glad for.

So the fruits of this month will be on display as more episodes of the Doctor show up on my website. This adventure through time and writing I am taking is a fun one. I hope it is as much fun to read out there. It has done wonders in not just this month but since I started working on it to remind me of all the parts of writing I love.

And as we slip into June, maybe the currents will become steady again so we can all remember how to navigate these waters.
