Another whirlwind of a month has gone by. I wish I could say that everything has settled and life is in a good place right now. To be honest, not much has changed since last month. So much for working towards my New Year’s Resolutions and hoping that life will begin properly.
However, not everything has been doom and gloom. I’m really pleased with how things are progressing on here. I feel like I’m gaining more confidence with blogging and receiving the lovely comments that I do makes it feel worth it. So thank you to all of your who have ever taken the time to drop me a line and let me know what you thought.
So, time to take a look back at my resolutions. In regards to writing, I want to say I am getting there. I’m managing more blog posts and feeling happier with how they are coming out. This week in particular I’ve done really well at working on some of my fanfictions which I use to try and improve on my style, try out new techniques etc. But I guess the most important thing is I have managed to finish the sixth chapter of my novel now. The more I work on it, the better I feel about it. So I’m hoping to get myself into a routine with it where I’m making steady progress. For now, however, I will just accept the fact that it is moving at all.
Health wise, things are still up in the air. Not helped by consultants cancelling appointments without giving a good enough reason. Job hunting is also going badly. I’ve just had a week off because I was getting so demoralised with it which has done me the world of good. But back to it all on Monday. I knew getting a job was going to be hard but I think I was a little naïve as to how hard. It’s feeling impossible. I really want to break into the publishing industry but meeting dead-ends everywhere I turn. I have a film and writing degree. If anyone knows anything open – especially around London – please let me know.
I guess in a way, that is my life at the moment. I spend the days job hunting and the evenings crashing out because I have such a bad headache. July has not been an enjoyable month. But letting all of these feelings out now is somewhat therapeutic and I’m feeling fairly positive about the future right now. I will find a job doing what I want to do and in the meantime, I’m going to carry on writing.
I’ve been enjoying challenging myself more with the reviews lately. I’m hoping over the next month or so I can start to introduce different types of blog posts and widen my horizon a little more as I grow in confidence. It’s hard to know what to explore when you have the whole world. Thank you all again for the support!
