My first year of graduate school is coming to a close. In several classes, I was asked a seemly innocent and easy question — why do you write?

I hope the month of November is treating you well. We are now 10 days into NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and I am over 16,000 words into the complete overhaul of Heart Work. It’s stressful, exciting, and time consuming because you are committing yourself to 1,667 words per day. Some days it’s easier than others to write and hit that goal.

Hello my darlings!
I’m excited about finishing my summer classes. I learned so much in my publishing class and my narrative journalism class, but I’m so excited to have the next six weeks off to recharge and focus on a few of my projects.

I am working on a social media schedule for both myself and my nonprofit, Midnight Waters. I will also be adding Parler and Rumble to my list of social media platforms, but I have not had a moment to set them up.

My summer classes end next week, and I have been finishing every assignment I can ahead of the last day of classes – next Friday. My hope is to complete all the assignments, and then only have to respond to the discussions. This would free up more of my time to focus on Heart Work.

“Hello, Mr. Bradley?”
“Yes, but you can just call me Jake.”

I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend. I traveled and went down to visit my grandpa in Santa Rosa for the weekend. It was great seeing my grandpa, uncles, and cousins as we spent time with my grandpa.
