Okay, 2016 is gone and thank God for that. For the first time in three years I didn't lose a family member. My dad's dog Samantha was a close call. She has a very hard time walking but he refuses to let her go. I'm glad she's still here but I hate to see her surfer.

I didn't lose anyone personally but it seemed as though 2016 wanted to take all of the good memories from my childhood with all of the celebrities who passed. I was so happy to see 2017 ushered in to hopefully break the curse.

Again last year I strived to write 250k words and again I failed only writing about 152k. What can I say, I'm a slow writer. This year my goal will be only 200k. Who knows, maybe I'll make it. To those who write that many words in one story, my hat is off to you. I will this year, try my hand at original fic.

I've been wanting to do that and my wonderful beta [livejournal.com profile] masja_17 has been encouraging me, so wish me the best and I hope that all of you have a wonderful and Happy New year!

I thought 2013 was a bad year, but I had no idea what was coming my way. In 2014 I lost my mother, my brother-in-law and my pride. As I write this I am recovering from the flu and waiting for a call that my grandmother has passed.

This year all I want is to recover and come out on the other end in one piece. I have my fingers crossed on that one.

Some things did turn out well, I found a job. I hate it with the passions of a 1000 suns, but it has helped me so for that I am very thankful. Even better ,was the offer of another job with much better pay and benefits that will start on 2/16/15.

I am very excited about this.

The past two years I have woefully failed at my word count (56k this year) but I'm going to give it the old college try again this year and try for 250k.

Wish me luck.

Reverse Big Bang

I know that I'm late but my computer has been out of commission, but I've nevr been more happy to see a year end. Dealing with a very sick mother, having to put my dog to sleep and a full on kitchen renovation that I'm still in the middle of has been trying.

Last year I decided to challenge myself with a word amount of 400k and I failed miselably. I started out strong before it all fell apart and ended at 235,879 or 58%. I will give it the old college try, but I won't aim so high this time and my goal will be 250k. Wish me luck.
