2015: Pause

Today is the last day of 2014. Tomorrow is the first page of 365.

I am still back in 2012- or maybe I wish I was. The last year went to fast, it was like a blur, a weird dream. This year, I don't want that to happen. I want to be able to look back, and remember moments clearly. I'm going to be turning an age I would rather avoid, but I want to be able to look back on this age and remember it.

2014: Try

The end of year is a weird time for me. I like to look forward at possibilities rather than back, but at the same time I like to learn and you can learn a lot from looking back. So here goes.

2014: Onward

The 6 days after Christmas are the last 6 days of another year. It's hard to chose how to spend them. Do you want your last days of 2014 to be with family and friends? By yourself, to reflect and make new goals? Do you want to spend them doing something you love?

Where I want to be in 10 years

What am I afraid of?

I am terrified of spiders and heights make me want to vomit. Also, I am scared of failing.

31 (or 28?) Day Blog Challenge: Day 16


My worst habits

I chew my hair and finger nails when I am nervous, so pretty much all the time. 

Four is Better Than None

I've been fiddling around with PicMonkey and the titles of my novels. I've tried changing Playing with Fire to King of Fire and Ashes to Princess of Choice. What do y'all think? 

31 (or 28?) Day Blog Challenge: Day 14

Favourite childhood book

I don't know... I liked Mog and Slinky Malinki.  I was quite fond of Judith Kerr in general.

Favourite Quote 

This changes from week to week, but right now? 
"I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to life deep and suck out all the marrow of life. To put to rout all that was not life, and not, when I had come to die, discover I had not lived." -Henry David Thoreau.

If I won the lottery

I would pay off my parents mortgage then I would buy a farm and horses. I'd give some money monthly to a charity.

Something That Death Can Touch

He opens the car door, but sits in the drivers  seat without moving. He does this every year, every 1st of September. The first year, when he was fifteen, his mom drove him. Now, three years later, he drives himself. 

31 (or 28?) Day Blog Challenge: Day 9

Most proud moment 

My sister got an academic award this year. My mom started her Masters. My dad pretty much painted our new (huge) lounge (ceiling walls and skirting boards). I finished my second novel (in first draft form).

31 (or 28?) Day Blog Challenge: Day 8

Piercings and tattoos 

I'm way to scared to let people punch holes right through me, but I would like a tattoo of a cross on my wrist. If I carry through with the idea, my parents might pay for it for my birthday. This is an  interesting one, because I know many Christians don't think tattoos are okay. 

I wouldn't be happy to discuss differing points of view on this :)

31 (or 28?) Day Blog Challenge

I know, I did this last year as well. It was probably boring. But I'm doing it again anyway. Better late than never (thats also what I think about getting out of bed)! If anyone would like to do this with me, tell me so that we can link up! Personally, I am going to miss #3, #10 and #14.

On Life, Perhaps my Characters Know More

Japro is a father for Azar, a son for Cre, a friend for Ruwa, a role model for Seeta.
King Durban is an Uncle to Azar, a bad one at that.
Azar is the Princess to a Kingdom, wishing she could lose her cown. 
Ruwa was born ordinary, his life destined to be extraordinary. 
Seeta is faking it until he makes it - whatever 'it' is. 
Cre dreams of being compassionate, but strong.

On life, perhaps my characters know more than me.
