Expect Awesomeness in 2016

2015 was an amazing year for me as an author, but also a hard year for me personally.  So it’s safe to say it’s been a mixed 365 days.

In 2015 I:
– graduated
– got an amazing job
– made some awesome friends
– drank a lot less
– started paying off my debts
– focused more on my writing
– grew my hair
– and a lot more!

2016 is going to be my Year of Achievement. I’m not posting some bullsh*t post about fad diets or going to the gym or buying a car. My goals and little and often and all about my personal happiness / mental stability.

2016 Year of Awesome Will Include:

– completely paying off my debts
– saving for a flat
– learning to drive
– finishing and releasing FINDING JENNIFER
– finishing EVERYDAY WE LIE
– spending more time writing than watching TV
– learning to relax
– spending less on me and more on time with others
– learning new skills
– improving my soul

What are your goals and hopes for 2016?

So, it’s New Year’s Eve…

I didn’t even realise it was New Year’s Eve today, until a cashier said so.

“Have a lovely new year miss, any plans?”

“For what?”

“Tonight, it is New Year’s after all!”


I had completely forgotten, and considering the fact that I’m going to a New Year’s party tonight, that’s pretty shameful.

It’s not that I had forgotten it was 31st December, I know the date, but with me being on my own in the house, and most of my friends don’t get back to Canterbury until today – I’d just forgotten to get excited. Not that I’m even that excited for 2014, more daunted by it.

2014 will bring pressure: for the sequel to my book, for my grades to go up (I’m aiming for a 1st this year, not that it will happen), with my family. I know it will eventually contain a funeral, unless the imaginary gods are on my side.

On the plus side, I will have a new niece or nephew to dote on, although I’ll probably never see him/her.

Anyway, I’m just feeling a bit, well, exhausted. I’ve been working a lot more than I usually do, and with Christmas, assignments and the general chaos of my writing life, 2013 has been a bit much.

Maybe 2014 will bring me the peace of mind I’ve been searching for…
