Today is day 27 of my 156 day sabbatical, spanning August through December. I'm trying not to obsess too hard over how much of my sabbatical has passed and how much is left, but in writing this I couldn't resist doing the math and learning that I'm 17% through my sabbatical at this point.
As I wrote last week, I've been on a social media fast since August 8, logging out of Facebook and Twitter on my phone as we left for vacation in Point Reyes and leaving my computer behind entirely. (I still feel both very lucky to have gone on said vacation when we did and a bit obscene talking about having vacationed there while the park is still closed to visitors due to the Woodward fire there.)
It's been a while. I certainly thought I'd be blogging more during my sabbatical! But I'm alright with having not, since I've been writing plenty otherwise. Thanks to a good friend who has also been doubling down on their commitment to their writing, not only have I been doing a thrice-weekly writing workshop of sorts with them, but I'm also participating in NaNoWriMo for the first time!
