December has been a challenging month, in many ways. It has been a rollercoaster of changes and small steps forward. Some of the challenges I have overcome, others I have survived. Believe me, there is a vast difference in those statements.
Most of my plans have not gone to plan. I wanted to blog every day, but found that through stress and illness, couldn’t manage it. I wanted to be a lot further on with my college homework by now, but again, that stress and illness intervened. And I wanted to be a lot (a lot!) closer to finishing Rabbit, maybe even have the first draft finished. Again, stress and illness are to blame.
So, if I had to sum this month up in one word, it would be change. December is defined by change.
Positively, I’ve been offered places at two universities and three have yet to get back to me. (This is exciting and terrifying.)
I am very ready for 2018.
- Living with the Dead by Kelley Armstrong – not my favourite in this series
- Men of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong
- Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong – one of my favourite books of the year
- Tales of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong
There’s been a theme to my reading this month…
- Rabbit – is not where I wanted it to be by now. I am a few thousand words off the end, and plan to finish in early January.
- Wrote, edited, and posted a new Winter Christmas story online. I enjoyed going back to Winter, I’ve missed her.
Interesting Internet Finds
- When You’re ‘Too Functional’ to Have Your Mental Illness Taken Seriously – An article on The Mighty which really resonated with me
That’s it for this month, and this year! Wow, it’s been…well, let’s just say I’m not sorry to see the end of 2017.
I’m looking forward to what 2018 will bring.
Until next time, go in peace. 🙂
