Ensign’s Log, Entry 40: December Update

It’s been two weeks since my last update, so I thought I’d just post something short today, since I don’t have anything huge to announce.

December’s been a busy month, with the release of From the Stories of Old, a Holiday Extravaganza Giveaway (which is still running, until the 28th, if you want to win a paperback or ebook copy of three different, amazing fantasy anthologies), and a seasonal job that taught me a lot about what I don’t want to do for the rest of my life.

Now that the seasonal job is over (finished on the 17th!), I have other exciting things going on–I’m in NYC for the holidays, I have editing and writing I want to do, and I have many crits I need to catch up with on Scribophile. And then there’s work-editing for my part-time job, helping with things around the house where I’m staying, and all the adventures (museums! ice skating! seeing the tree!) I have planned for my NYC time.

Does a part of me wish I had gotten more writing stuff done the first three weeks of this month? Yes. Am I going to be upset with myself about it, though? Nope!

It’s the holiday season and I’m going to relax, have fun, and get things done at a pace that I’m comfortable with. And when the new year rolls around, I’m going to have lots of fun goals prepared, so keep an eye out in the next week or so for a list of my 2017 writing goals!
