My new years resolution this year was simply this, to read more, to work more on my novel, and to in general be more than what I had been before. I figured a blog would be a good way to hold myself accountable to these things.
be more.

Located at the Cincinnati Public Library it was designed by sculptor Michael Frasca and dedicated in 1990.
"The Amelia Valerio Weinberg Memorial Fountain is located on the Vine Street Plaza in front of the Main Library. Conceived and executed by former Cincinnati sculptor Michael Frasca, this ornamental fountain was made possible by a bequest from Mrs. Weinberg and was dedicated in 1990. Affectionately known as the “book fountain,” the sculpture features water cascading over a stack of ceramic tile books, representing the free flow of information and ideas through the printed word. The fountain is a popular spot for school groups and tourists." (Photo J.F Schmitz)

Not getting bored of my own story and/or character is one of the main struggles I have had with novel writing, and I have put to bed big chunks of work that just didn’t sustain my interest.

I actually have an older copy of Aurora Leigh, but look at this it’s so pretty. And Mrs. Gaskell. It’s too precious.
