I’m off to a good reading start in the new year. I’ve finished three books so far and have several almost done. I’ve also dove into a new one called HELL BENT by Devon Monk. So far I’m really liking it, but I like smartass characters. I really hope that as the writing gets more intense that I can keep up this level of reading. I was disappointed with the number of books that I read last year–even though the Goodreads’ final number was off. (They don’t count multiple reads and I’m not the best at updating my list.)
Thus far this year has been interesting. I’ve been making a lot of career decisions that frankly I wouldn’t have made three years ago. (i.e. Cutting conferences from my to-do list, quitting critique groups due to my insane writing schedule, etc.) It all boils down to putting the writing first. Up to this point, it’s been a major priority, but it hasn’t always been first. It is this year and I’m curious to see if it makes a difference. I can’t imagine that it won’t, since I’ll also be taking craft classes to better my writing skills, but it’ll be interesting to see how much.
I am still in London. Will be for a few more days. Today was a beautiful day. Enjoyed a nice walk. Looked at some ice sculptors. (They hadn’t finished their creations so all we could do is look at them.;) And had a great meal at a tapas restaurant. Probably shouldn’t have had the Cava sangria, but boy was it good. Now I need a nap. *ggg
