As the year draws to a close I would like to reflect on the last twelve months and look to the future.
It’s been an eventful year for me. I got a job, moved out of my parents house, started this website and then, thanks to a Christmas present, was able to buy my own domain.
In terms of writing, it’s been a bit up and down. I’ve had a few ideas. One in particular stuck around for a while before I abandoned it on the 1st of November, and with it my attempt at NaNoWriMo for this year. Finally I realised the stagnation with writing was due to not doing enough reading – how often have I read and at times given the advice to aspiring new writers that it is very important to read? But I’d failed to listen to it myself. I am now definitely reading a lot more – fiction, non-fiction, traditionally published, self-published, unpublished, long or short. Having received a Kindle from my parents for Christmas, I’m finding reading easier than ever, especially since it fits into my handbag a lot more easily than a book.
