Hello! Happy November, world. I’ve been writing my millennial underground this story for #NaNoWriMo, and, in classic National Novel Writing Month form, I’m behind. But if you keep visiting amysuto.com/underground, you’ll find new chapters added. I don’t have an outline or anything, I’m just writing it every day and seeing what happens. You’ll find cameos of singer/songwriters out here as well as mixed media storytelling. It’s been super fun to write, and I hope you enjoy my caffeine-addled rough drafts.
But a huge part of the writing process is not just output, but input. What are you reading? Experiencing? Absorbing? I wanted to also capture that and share some of the interesting things I’m checking out in case you want to do the same.
So, this is my new series, Weekend Read, where I do a roundup of some of my favorite watches, reads, and memes so you know what to spend your weekend checking out.
This series is inspired by my time as an assistant where we all had to diligently watch and read things over the weekend and then present them to the company and/or our bosses.

Blogging is great. Long live blogs.[Read more…]
