Soulful Sunday – Christmas 2018 and New Year 2019

new year

It's been a busy year, and it's ending on a busy note. For the last week I've been buried in books reading for one of my English literature assignments, which, honestly, I wish I'd started reading for a few weeks ago. Another lesson learned. The entire year has been a steep learning curve, and that's … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Christmas 2018 and New Year 2019

university book

This past week I've finished my first semester at university. These are the lessons, summed up, I've learned from it: 1. Always be prepared.

Words & Thoughts – Week 32 & 33

hectic dreams

Weekly thought & writing update. Words Honestly, writing has taken a backseat again the last two weeks. Other things have taken priority. Which is frustrating, but also life. I think my problem is that I haven't really been prioritising my writing/editing. I've been unsure exactly what to prioritise this summer. I have so many projects … Continue reading Words & Thoughts – Week 32 & 33

Words & Thoughts – Week 31

angry waves

Weekly thought & writing update.  Words I am currently editing Into the Unknown, and I've decided to not use wordcount to measure my progress - I'm working in a bit of a confused manner at the moment, so I'm not going to try to explain here, but I'm finding that measuring my work in time … Continue reading Words & Thoughts – Week 31

July 2018 Wrap-up!

July heat

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it. ~Russel Baker July...has been a heatwave. And I have changed my mind- I like the winter better than the summer when the summer is 30 degrees Celsius! It has been incredibly difficult to get anything done.
