My second blog post in two days! What’s happening?
On the last day of 2019, I can’t help but look back at the previous year.
On a personal level, this has been both one of the most difficult years I’ve ever experienced and one of the best. I discovered so much about who I am. I also discovered that we never stop growing and learning. I had to overcome so much this year. My world was turned upside down and all of the plans I had for the future were completely destroyed as I learned that you never really can plan for the future. But as I embraced that--as I learned to speak and live my truth and take care of myself--I began to attract positive, uplifting people into my life. I reconnected with old friends and connected with new ones. So many people helped me get through this year, and I am so grateful to all of them.
In terms of my career, a lot happened. I started a new day job as a Digital Content Strategist for WT Digital Agency, a job I actually love. I published You and the Night, the last book in my Muse Chronicles Trilogy and started a new vampire trilogy with Into the Shadows. I wrote the first play I’ve written in years, Swipe Right, a play about dating apps. (Okay, I’m not technically finished with that one, but almost!) During the last half of the year, I was dealing with so much personal life stuff that it was hard for me to get much writing done, but I’m ready to hit the ground running in 2020.
I read/saw/listened to/experienced a lot of great art this year. Here are some of my favorites:
