If you try to limit your social media time or simply missed my postings, here are collected pictures from November and December. Enjoy!
Work vs. Writing
Back when I had a regular 9-5 type of job, I knew I’d be able to write very day (some unexpected circumstances now and then aside).
Being a freelancer means that my schedule is all over the place, and my Grand Writing Plans (ok, they aren’t so grand, buuut…) got slightly derailed.
My November felt like balancing on a tightrope, trying to do all the things. I had a lot of work assignments, and writing needed to be done too. And then there was, of course, Fallout 76 I wanted play.
But let’s be honest. If this picture was closer to reality, the “work” side would have already pulled me off balance.
I was very busy back in November. In December it was getting better, but I was still less around than I’d have liked to. If you’re wondering why, this picture should explain it.
One day, I accidentally skipped my morning cup of tea. When I realized it, I was already suffering from withdrawal symptoms, so I figured I might as well go through a detox, and “reset” my caffeine addiction.
This picture was created after very sad 5 days. Overall, I lasted two weeks before getting back to “the habit”.
The last Wordwitch of the year was that with wishes to all my readers, followers, and fans: whether you celebrate anything or not, and no matter what you celebrate, I hope this festive season will be the time you are hoping it to be – quiet and relaxing, maybe with a good book, or full of laughter and family gatherings, or in any other way you think is the best.
