This year flew by so fast. I had some great moments: I met some lovely writers, improved my writing, started drawing life-like people, got beta readers, and became more confident in my story. This year wouldn’t have been so bad if I hadn’t lost my dog Bear. I still miss him so much and it hurts when I think about him.
In other news, February 2017 marks the 2nd year I have been working on my epic fantasy book. Nearly two years ago was the day I sat in front of my computer and told myself I’m going to write this book. And I can’t believe how far I’ve come! My story has become a 180,000+ word novel that is close to completion. I still have a lot ahead of me, but I’m hoping to publish it in 2017 if not early 2018. I’m terrible with dates and I don’t like setting deadlines if I’m not sure. Not to mention, I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my stories.
Below is a picture of most of the drawings I did this from June-December 2016.
I wish everyone luck in the new year!
