I like to read Fenelon in the morning after family Bible study. If you haven’t heard of him, you should try to get your hands on one of his books – this is coming from someone who doesn’t ordinarily like classic authors, even classic Christian ones. His letters are short, simple, poignant, and perfect for thought and study.
And, of course, school. Though fortunately Mom let me swap out Hamlet (which was driving me up the wall because I can’t stand anyone in it) for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which is much more suited to my tastes. I’ll take Puck over the good Dane any day.
There is much coffee and tea-drinking throughout the day. Any day. Every day.
And of course, music. I got this beautiful new mp3 player from my brother for my 19th birthday and it’s been getting a lot of good use.
Also, lots of handwriting if we go anywhere.
Wandering around in the car…not the most fascinating thing ever, but a change of scenery often jogs the mind.
Putting the finishing touches on Monster. I’m now (more or less) diving head-first into the self-publishing world. My parents are fantastic, by the way. They’re behind it full-throttle, and my excitement just keeps growing.
On Tuesday mornings Mom, Riah and I bring the laptop downstairs and watch the latest episode of Revolution.
And lately, I’ve had yet *another* skill to hone – digital art. My parents bought me a Huion Digital Art tablet for my birthday, and it’s an entirely new medium that I’m still trying to get the hang of. This was my first (and also best) attempt – everything since has been practical rubbish, but it’s a challenge.
And there you have an average day – things are whirling nicely, and school has become more relaxed now that my subjects have narrowed down to mainly reading. When I’m not doing school I’m busy either writing, editing, reading, critiquing, drawing or wrestling with my tablet. What about you? What have you been up to?
