The last day of a very long year. I wanted to capture a few thoughts before sitting back, sipping something bubbly and welcoming in 2021 with open arms.
2020 has certainly been a shift for all of us. For me, it’s taught me to let a few of those extra balls I try and keep throwing back into my juggling routine to fall. And it’ll be ok if they fall. Inevitably, someone will offer to help by either adding it to their juggling act or showing me it wasn’t an important addition to my own.
2020 has helped me get back on the writing horse. The daily grind of commuting, catching up with family once back home and other non-stop worries kind of disappeared or became a thread throughout my day, not a tangled yarn ball when I walked through the door at the end of it. This allowed me to swivel in my desk chair from work to hustle. I slipped easily into my characters’ lives and world and allowed them to carry me away.
I love that on the last 6 months of the year, 2020 brought me 20 minute writing sprints. It matched perfectly with the dream I had introducing me to Zak and Sadie. Their second chance at love woke me up and slowly, over the course of a couple months and 20 minutes a day, their story was crafted. I wrapped them up with a nice NaNo bow. Now my goal in 2021 is to go back through and edit the crap out of their back and forth but let them live out in the published world.
I have yet to tackle this website but hopefully 2021 will bring me some web inspiration and I’ll have more to share in the coming months. For right now, I think I’ll savor the end of 2020 a little bit more.
