Happy Birthday Inksoaked Page

Hola Fellow Writers & Readers :)

First Happy 7th Birthday to this amazing blog! I cannot believe I have been blogging on this platform for seven whole years! Time does tend to fly by, but boy do I have some updates for you guys. 

First, the last time I updated this blog was in January 2020 where I decided to dedicate a good chunk of my time to my novel. I did not think a Pandemic would occur just a few months later but although it had shaken everything in my life around, it helped me. I was able to dedicate a bit more time to my novel but also helped me balance my last graduate semester, fellowship, and work. It also showed me it was time to leave New York City. As much as I love my city and roots unfortunately it's just ultimately a difficult place to live with a growing family. In a few weeks, I will be going to a new state to view houses with my husband Eric and daughter Emmy. 

Due to all of that I will be taking a step back from writing and balancing everything else. When we are settled in then I will return back to the writing. Next is finalizing my PhD applications, some job opportunities and wrapping 2020 up with a bow. Although this pandemic has stalled some things it has definitely pushed me to make major decisions. 

I will try to get this blog back to writing and book reviews. 

Stay Tuned

Major 2020 Goal & Update

Here is a Facebook post that I put up a few weeks ago. This year I wanted to focus on my writing, and take a step back from writing and editing for others. 2020, is a big year for me personally and I want to end the year with a traditionally published book (and maybe one self-published piece). Writing has been my dream, and it's been mentioned multiple times on this blog, but this year I am going full force with it. No this does not mean I will stop reviewing books! I will answer my backlog of messages ASAP, but I will be more mindful of personal writing on this blog and strictly keep major projects to myself. 

Wish me luck on this adventures 💟
