#53: I Survived 2020 (And So Did You)

Hey, everyone!

So 2020 is nearly over... this year just didn't feel right :/ I mean, a big part of that was due to the ongoing pandemic, but even after growing accustomed to the shifting social environment, something doesn't feel right. Ever since NaNoWriMo ended, I've written NOTHING.

I sort of want to keep today's blogpost short enough so I don't waste anyone's time, but I realize that, since it's the end of the year, I should probably reflect on 2020 as a whole?

Anyway, despite the global crisis and worsening mental/physical health of my family members, I would love to boast that my own mental stability has gotten better since taking medication for my anxiety <3 I won't lie and say my anxiety and panic attacks have become nonexistent, but I've definitely been able to get a better handle on them so they don't happen as frequently as before. I was also able to republish The Blood Diamond with better (I think) results/reviews and a better product in general!

Other than that, nothing's really changed... I know I'm not the only one who had a tough year, but I think I also grew more responsible in 2020... on a personal level, if not on a professional level as well (when it comes to writing and editing).

I really hope I can write a lot more in 2021! I think that's a given, especially with my plan to publish the sequel in the upcoming months <3 As always, I'll keep you all posted on any publishing news - either through these monthly blogs or, better yet, my social media! You can find those linked below, by the way~!

Anyway, I feel like 2020 had a LOT of ups and downs, lots of challenges... but a good payoff too, especially when it comes to my writing goals and personal anxieties! I survived 2020, and I should be relieved. And I am, don't get me wrong. I'm just hopeful that 2021 will be less anxiety-inducing. I'll keep up my responsibilities and pray that I'll be able to publish another book this upcoming year so... here's to 2021! May it not suck NEARLY as much as 2020! <3

See you on the other side, everybody! In the meantime, please stay safe and stay awesome! Keep spreading the word about my book! <3 And don't forget to subscribe!
