#GoodThingsJar2013 December Update

Good things jar at the end of December 2013

Credit: ME! :p

There you have it. December done. Down. Dusted.

And this >>>> is my good things jar. What an incredible year it’s been! What with all the wonderful things that have happened to me and I now have evidence of all of them. Here.

December… of course with it being Christmas, there are all sorts of great happenings to be pleased about, but there are a couple of particulars that stick out in my mind.

Seeing Old Friends

I don’t get to see Gemma very often and every time I do it’s a lovely experience. We went to Birmingham and mooched around the German markets. We both had wonderful news to share and it was a real treat to be able to go. Taking Celine with me only made it better; two of my favourite people close by me in a place full of fun things to eat and buy!

The Hobbit

While I have had a little bit of a whine about the film I can’t deny that I enjoyed it. And the producers certainly got it right by releasing only once a year. It ensures that around this time of year excitement is at a fever-pitch and people are all but frothing at the mouth to get to the cinema. I know I was.

Writing, Writing, Writing

No time off. Not really. I have enough ‘time off’ in the day while looking after the boys I didn’t want to stop working because it was December. So I kept scribbling. The result is that I have some flash and a short story in need of editing, meaning I’ll soon have more stories suitable for submission. Raven has been busy too; hacking away at the Meeting Each Other series to make it perfect for you.

I’ve enjoy the project so much that I’ll be continuing into this year. New jar, new slips of paper, new good things. I’m not going to report on them each month though. I think with all the plans I have in store there just won’t be time to do it all. But, of course, when something particularly good happens, you can expect a bonus blog about it.Particularly if it’s related to what this blog is all about.

I hope you’re all well and enjoying the year so far. It’s looking to be a good one!

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.
