“I learned to write by writing. I tended to do anything as long as it felt like an adventure, and to stop when it felt like work, which meant that life did not feel like work.”  -Neil Gaiman

 

Well, I survived surgery on the 11th. Other than a little here and there complications, it went well.  A grapefruit sized cyst was removed from my fallopian tube, and that aspect is a lot more comfortable. Now I just need to finish healing from the surgery itself.

Something nice that came from being home resting for a little over a week, was a desire to write and a burst of creativity. The downside to this, though, was that I couldn’t really sit up to do much of anything without a lot of pain or feeling sick. But now that I can (somewhat) sit up, I’ve been writing. I haven’t worked on any specific project, so much as just let myself type and see what comes of the words. So far, I really like it. But soon I have to get back to more serious words.

As 2014 comes to a close next week, I’ve had my mind on 2015, and what I’d like to do with a whole new year. Above anything, I want to make it incredible. I want to move forward, to better things. Even though it scares me.

Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall.

 So, I’m making a list of all the things I’d like to work on next year. What I want to accomplish, where I’d like to be by this time next year, etc. Expect that Monday or Tuesday.

I know the number one thing on that list, though, is to get something published. Something big, something little. Anything. Anything but sitting here doing nothing. I don’t want to waste another moment saying that I want to be a writer. I AM a writer.

Alright, back to my words.
