The beginning of December is here, which makes it IWSG time again. It truly hit yesterday, but I was so tired last night that I just didn’t have it in me. So … today is the day.
The question for December is: As you look back on 2017, with all its successes/failures, if you could backtrack, what would you do differently?
Nothing. I’m firmly of the mindset that every decision has led me to where I am, and where I am, especially with my writing, is where I want to be.
Now, that does not mean that this year was easy. It was, in fact, one of the hardest writing years of my life, but it has produced the best book I’ve yet written. (Not hard to do given it is only my second book :)) But the level of what has come out of me is far above what I realized I was capable of, especially given the fits and starts of the early drafts. So, as I mentioned in the beginning, I would not undo a step along the way. 2017 came in with a butt kicking in mind, and apparently, it was exactly what I needed to get ‘er done.
Time for some news.
This first story is funny, a little off-color, but ultimately really cool. Anything can be a time capsule, people. 🙂
Any one of us would have done the same. I smiled each time she started to giggle. Laughter really is contagious.
And in Science news, yetis are bears with an evolutionary twist. It looks like what many have waved away as mere legend may actually be a distinct branch of the bear family isolated in its development by the peaks of the Himalayas. Fascinating find.
Well, that’s all for me tonight. See you back here in six.
