What I Learned in January

  1. Thank you so much for not erasing that paragraph, it’s your voice! It’s the truth. And it meant a lot to me for someone to be so bold as to say, “I can’t make up my mind what I want!” The year has started out well for me, I’ve read more than I expected to and have started writing my book, finally, but I still struggled. Some days ended in tears, and other were just off kilter and blah. However, in January, I learned too. Keep writing! And keep learning. ❤

    1. Marissa, I really can’t express how much your kind words mean to me! I was really second guessing this post, so your comment really touched me. Thanks for sharing how you felt in January, too! I am so familiar with those days ending in tears, or just feeling off. That’s one of my favorite things about writing- it lets us know we aren’t alone. ❤
      Congratulations again on starting your book! I cannot wait to read it!!! In the meantime, I'll be looking out for your other book recommendations. 🙂


  2. Thanks for posting this. I don’t open up about things like this nearly as much as I probably should, so its inspiring to see you do it! I hope I can learn that lesson about being brave. And about appreciating rest when you can get it!

    I usually don’t like it when people tell me I have to read a certain book, but in this case, you have to read To Kill a Mockingbird. It is entirely amazing.

    And no, you will never be alone on #6. 😉

    1. Thanks for reading it, Hanna! I completely understand how hard it is to open up, so I’m really happy this post was inspiring! As for being brave… I’m not sure I’ll ever have that lesson learned completely. 😉

      Since your recommendations are always wonderful, I will certainly accept your insistence I read To Kill a Mockingbird! I’ll have to let you know when I get to it! 😀

  3. Beautiful post, Sarah! Thanks for sharing all you’ve learned, and thanks especially for making it seem like a splendid thing to stay up until 4:00 am reading. I haven’t done that in so long, and now I have a strong urge to do just that. Perhaps this was not the intended effect you wished to have on your readers, but it happened just the same.
    Who needs sleep anyway?
