On Hiatus But Starting Again Soon
I started NDN Lit at the end of 2014 as a way to encourage myself to read more works by Indigenous authors. I spent the whole of 2015-2017 reading and reviewing those books and writing the NDN Lit newsletter where I shared my reviews and news surrounding new book releases written by Indigenous authors.
Then I stopped in 2018.
This past year has been a tough one for me as far as writing goes. I became somewhat paralyzed, unable to motivate myself to write or sometimes even work on my novel. I would revisit the novel I was working on every month or so and make some edits, but I didn't write anything new.
Today, I feel refreshed and ready to start going again. I'll restart the newsletter but it will look different than it did. I'll start writing again, and I'll start looking for literary representation for my novel.
Here's to the rest of our lives in celebration of Native literature.
