Writing Journal 6.7.2020: It doesn’t feel like summer… or is it an endless summer?

The new block formatting for WordPress seems a little strange… at least, it seems strange to me. It doesn’t seem as straightforward as the old WordPress system, but I’m guessing that it might allow for some people who want to be more visually creative to spread their wings. I’m more of a written word guy myself.

Not too much to share this week. It is the first “official” day of my summer break, but with the big pandemic I have been more or less out of my classroom since mid-March, so it feels more like an endless pretend summer myself. I started the school year with a wife and two kids and now I have a wife living in another town whom I will soon join while I share my home with two adult kids. It has been an interesting adjustment.

I need to get moving on some items, like other writing projects, getting in contact with people, etc. I need to read what other people have been doing on blogs if I’m hoping others read mine, although the whole point of this blog, other than expressing my interests and thoughts on writing, is to keep me honest about the writing process and keeping up with creating something whether it eventually gets published or not.

Got a good start to June – probably my highest weekly word count yet this year [UPDATE 6.14.2020 – Lies, as my daughter would say. I miscalculated last week. The numbers are now revised.]
All you other writers keep writing and everyone keep safe.

[Editing note: I do not like the fact that there is apparently no quote box anymore and we have to do separate boxes for nearly everything. It’s annoying. If there is a way to do quote boxes still, let me know in the comments.]
