First Draft Complete

Dear world,

Today I finished the first draft of my novel. I am now going to take a six-week break from it before I begin the long editing process.

I'm free! I think I'll read some books, maybe write something else, find a new show to watch, and find my sanity again. For the past month I've been breathing, eating, and sleeping this book. It feels so great to finally finish it.

That is all!

Until next time I hope you find joy in your writing :)

New Year and New Me

I hope every one had a great Christmas and New Years. Now that the holidays are over it's time to get into new year mode. I've written about my New Years Resolutions in the past. This year I didn't post anything and here's why:

I've decided I'm not going to have a New Years Resolution. This year I'm going to have goals, but the biggest change is going to be my attitude. I spent a lot of time in 2013 being depressed and I can't do it anymore. I need to take more control of my life and change the things I can. That mostly means thinking more positively about what I have and knowing what I want.

Failure is a possibility, but I need to stop being afraid of it. Because if I fail, it means I at least tried.

What do you hope to see happen in your life this year?
