When in doubt steel. That is not a credo for life but a credo for writing. Hench why I have picked this title – for those who don’t know this is from a title of a Doctor Who episode – The Doctor Dances. (The Episode has nothing to do with anything it’s just a good title.)
So why am I dancing…
Well give me a few minutes to answer that question. For many 2016 has been a very bad year. Voting has not gone the way many hoped, Brexit and the US Election, and celebrities who are special to many have died. I realise the irony of mentioning Brexit and the US Election – they were, basically, a straight choice between two options after all. Nevertheless there are many unhappy people in the US and UK at the moment.
For me personally 2016 will go down as a good year. I’ve met a special someone and thus 2016 is the best year of my life. I now have more of a purpose in my life – I want to see the world with her – I’ve been talking to her for a couple of months now and its wonderful. So, yes, this writer is dancing, and singing too. That is not entirely figurative. Even at work I am muttering songs under my breath. Including The Best is Yet to Come.
And Unconditional by The Corrs.
And speaking of writing I attempted Nanowrimo last month. I failed. I was about 3000 words off target also my desk top died so I couldn’t even fail properly! Nevertheless I still have a very good chunk of a novel written. That, my friends, shows the supreme importance of backups. Backup everything!
So, for me, 2016 is not so bad. And I think that 2017 is going to be an excellent year.
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
