“I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.” ~ Ray Bradbury
Between now and next January is shaping up to be blissfully busy! November and December have always extremely busy for me and this year is no exception. I have been busy taking courses for both pleasure and business. I’m currently studying Forensic Anthropology, Archaeology and Irish Mythology as well as pursuing complementary courses and workshops for my creativity coaching practice at IgniteYourCreativity.net which I will be relaunching with new content, new courses and new look in Winter 2020.
As well as my courses and usual to-do list, I’m also halfway through tackling this year’s NaNoWriMo. To sum it up, in between writing essays, blog posts, book reviews and articles, I am attempting to finish my draft of a 50,000 word (min.) on my #UrbanFantasy #Gothic novel by the 30th. So far I’m on track, but as with most writers, the first draft is awkward, messy and often frustrating but it’s become an addiction I’m not ready to quit.
Keep your eyes open for Professor Owl’s Book Corner December Newsletter for Young Adults coming out this weekend, my #WATWB We are the World Blogfest post on November 29th and a few book reviews coming up over the next few months. I will be taking a hiatus of sorts over the last two weeks of December to celebrate the holidays with family.
“This is how you do it: You sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it’s done. It’s that easy, and that hard.” ~ Neil Gaiman
Wherever you may be in your day or evening, I hope you’re living with passion and purpose! 🙂
Live, laugh & love! ❤
