Autumn update

We are now almost halfway through October! I’m having a hard time realizing and accepting that the year is drawing to a close. In one way I’m very grateful since 2019 started in a very bad way for me and usually I love December and January and I want experience them again without being on heavy medicine. But more on that at another time.

I wanted to give a bit of an update. When the term started I made a post on how I was going to manage to stay active as an author and blogger even while working as a teacher. I always fail at that but this term I wanted to manage. I want to be an author all year around and not just during June, July and August.

Now I haven’t been as active on here and other social media as I wanted but since writing that post I have been asked by my boss to take additional classes at university on teaching Swedish as a Second Language to help children who are new to Sweden. This is a mission and an opportunity I’m very grateful for since it also adds to my responsibility as a teacher. HOWEVER that gives me less time and energy for author stuff. Even now I should be studying and instead I’m writing this post.

Anyway….

  • “I Love You Nora Whispered” is in beta reading and I’m writing character representations that I’m posting here. So keep an eye out for that.
  • I was supposed to start the first installment in my zombie series but instead I kind of started a contemporary romance novel about an author and a teacher (yeah, yeah, I know). That’s all I’m going to say about that now.
  • I want to write some short stories (under 5000 words) to publish on my blog that you can read for free but we will see how much energy I have later this month.
  • It’s almost November but I’m obviously not doing NaNoWriMo. I did manage once (although it was during my fanfiction days) but not since I started working. I am writing and that’s good enough for me.
  • We have moved into our new home now after living in temporary spaces since May. It’s such a relief.
  • I’m still continuing my ABC blog post series even though it might seem like I’m not. I’ve just had posts to write that didn’t fall into the proper letter.
