The Inevitable Post

Oh good lord.  The last time I blogged was OCTOBER??!

My apologies. 

I used to be a huge fan of end of the year retrospectives, but the past few years I haven't always been feeling it.  This year in particular, I just don't know what to say. 

It's been a weird year. 

There have been a few bumps.  I think the first six months of this year were some of the most challenging I've ever had. Mostly it looked like this:

Well, ok, no.  If it looked like Ryan Gosling rubbing his face and exhibiting a tender vulnerability in front of me...well...I probably wouldn't have been so stressed. Heyyyy. 

But I was overwhelmed--finishing a master's degree and acting as Director for Boston GLOW--not easy. 

But then there was Lion Heart.  Lion Heart was HARD.  I spent most of 2013 writing it, and the first half of 2014 staring at it and feeling broken--feeling like there were all these things wrong with it and I didn't know how to fix them.  Feeling more lost than I ever had with writing.  I felt like I had lost my faith that I could keep going with the book--I had lost Scarlet and her story and I had no idea how to say goodbye to her. 

And trying to figure that out while doing the other stuff was HARD. 

But then...I did it.  I finished Lion Heart--in fact, it's going to EXIST, in real BOOKISH FORM, in May. 

I graduated--that was pretty awesome. 

I went to my cousin's wedding, my best friend's wedding (I was maid of honor!), my little brother's graduation from law school, and I watched him get sworn in to the Pennsylvania bar.  I started as a teaching fellow at Harvard Graduate School of Education, I celebrated my older brother getting engaged to an awesome future sister-in-law and Lady Thief hit the shelves.

Which means...2014 was a pretty awesome year. 

But guys...I have a feeling that 2015 is going to be awesome.  I will officially publish my first trilogy, my big brother will get married (actually, EVERYONE is getting married--I have five weddings to go to so far.)

And this will be me:

So bring it on, 2015.  Because if 2014 taught me anything, its that I AM SO READY FOR YOU. 

And that I'm looking forward to cracking 500 on Candy Crush.  Because whatever, I have goals. 

 

xx

Wow, you know lots of people getting married. Lady Thief made for an awesome 2015, and I can't wait to see how Scarlet finishes her journey in Lion Heart! :D

Can't wait for Lionheart! I saw Scarlet on the shelf one day and gave it a shot, loved it instantly and I've always been checking every month for Lady Thief and now Lionheart to come out! Congrats on your year!
