Merry | December 2016

This year has passed so quickly, with ups and downs and days full of adventures. It’s the running thing that 2016 is the worst year ever, and while it had its downsides for me, on the whole I had a pretty good year. It was busy and productive and I got to do things I’ve dreamed of doing for a long time. I won’t be doing a recap of the whole year in this post, just a recap of December. But if you’d like to see some of the big moments from this year, click here.

On to December!
* Announced some of my plans for The Assassin’s Daughter.
I’ll be leaving the form open for a while more, so if you’re interested in helping out with the launch team, just click here. :) More announcements will be happening soon!

* Wrote and published The Pursuit of Merriment.

I’d intended to take a writing break in December because of NaNo...and then after I finished NaNo I got a plot bunny. I chased plotted it in a two-hour road trip home Thanksgiving weekend and spent the next couple of weeks drafting and editing it. All ten chapters are now available on Wattpad, so if you’re looking for a fluffy, holiday read…

* Celebrated Christmas.
It’s probably my favorite holiday, and this year was a bit different than others since my parents hosted Christmas dinner for the first time. It was a busy day, but a very good one. All my siblings were here for Christmas Eve, so we stayed up late and then got up early to open presents and it was really fun. I received some lovely gifts and spent lots of time with people I love. 

* Watched Assassin’s Creed.
I know very little about the game series but I loved this movie. A lot. And I got to see it twice because the theater gave us free passes because of a tech glitch during the first showing, so that was cool. 

* Worked on my list of 2017 goals.
I’ll be doing a post about those in January, but I think it’s a pretty fun, challenging list. A little different from 2016, but with some of the same ideas.
