2017 Accomplishments

Hello everyone! 

I hope you all are having a good day.

Today, I am going to talk about the accomplishments I made in 2017. Phew….let me tell you, a lot of things happened in 2017. It wasn’t the joyous of rides, but at least it was an adventure – well – experience  more like.

One of these experiences was severely twisting my ankle. I was in and out the hospital for several weeks, and was in a wheelchair for three months. Argh….that was horrible….I hated siting in a wheelchair while my cousins went out and play. When I was on my brink of recovering, I decided to do some Hydro Therapy, (because I hadn’t gone out for two months!), at the condominium, where I used to live. And then something else happened! Another case of injury.

*Sigh*That year wasn’t going as planned.

I accidentally pierced myself on a broken pile while swimming, and ended up going to the doctor again.  He said it was a puncture wound. OMG! It became blue-black and very swollen as if my foot was made of stone. It was heavy to lift it up – I couldn’t even feel my foot. It was so painful that I could barely walk. And the worse case scenario was that; it was my twisted and injured foot. *sobs*

*eyes rolled* So much for coming to the swimming pool to exercise… 

However, during my journey of agony, I was surprised that I achieved some of the goals on my checklist. 

  1. My poem. ‘My Baby Butterfly,’ was published in iRiS Magazine #1
  2.  Another poem, ‘IntEruptions of Thoughts,’  was published in The Poet’s Haven Digest #4  (under the name of Alexandria Johnson)

Even though I had accomplished two of my goals, I am proud that I did something amazing for 2017. I am very glad that I get to share my poetry with everyone!

YAHOOOOOOOOO! I am grateful for these successes!!! 😀 

 

 Till next time.

2018 Writing & Reading Resolutions

Hello Dreamers!

Okay. That is weird considering I am talking to myself. Although you may think I am not, but I am, I am talking to myself when it is my own blog post. Ahem….it has been a long time since my last blog post. Sorry about that, I have been busy lately with my life and work – although my work is basically me, finishing my first novel. I consider it as work, lots and lots of work, and I’m telling you; it is a working progress. I haven’t yet finished my first draft, but I’m going to, and I shall finish this draft by the end of 2018. Now that is a prominent achievement; I have to put my words into action.

After all, action speaks louder than words.

Here are my Writing Goals in 2018:-

  1. Finish the first draft of my fantasy novel
  2. Draft out a short story
    Sunshine Smile

    Sample-of-the-cover

  3. Finish drafting out the short story
  4. Come up with more ideas for my next novel (although it isn’t the time thinking about this, but what the heck, I want to get my other book done too! Super excited about this one).

And then these are my Reading Resolutions for this year:-

  1. Read a chapter a day
  2. Read Mary Higgins Clark’s The Lost Years

the lost years

3. Read Stephen King’s Mr Mercedes

4. Read a Non-Fiction

5. Finish 20 books this year!

Hopefully, I will get to complete my goals successfully. Wish me luck!

*Fingers crossed*

Till next time.
