Christmas has passed, the eggnog is gone, shredded wrapping paper is strewn all across the floor…
If you had Monday off, maybe you chose to sleep in…
But it’s Tuesday morning, and it’s back to business as usual, because although capitalism spends the entire year building us up for Christmas, it still only gives us a day, so back to work!
Sarcasm aside, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas, and if you didn’t, I hope you at least found something that made you smile this holiday season. The end of the year can be a stressful time, but taking a moment to appreciate those tiny moments that bring us joy, no matter how few or far between, is what gets us through it.
Speaking of what brings me joy, I’m finishing up the final chapters of my Kindle Vella story this week. It has truly been a treasure writing and editing this story, seeing how much it’s changed, and falling in love with these characters all over again (my favorite is Rita, by the way).
I know my followers outside the US unfortunately won’t get to read it. If Vella turns out to be a success, maybe Amazon will expand it to other countries. Or maybe I’ll take the next step and publish my story as an ebook. But to be honest, I’m quite content with having it live on Kindle Vella, as this is my first venture into releasing a full-length title under my name (the word count just over 40,000 words), and I couldn’t be prouder. After three years of feeling unfulfilled, I just want to bask in this accomplishment for a while.
I’m looking forward to 2023 and writing more stories (including my Twilight Zone New Year’s Eve marathon, which I still plan on doing—pray for me!). So for now, I’m closing the chapter on Waiting for the Day, but I hope you enjoyed this incredible journey with me from serial on the blog to published story on Amazon!
As a gift from me to you, here’s an excerpt from the Christmas day chapter.Continue reading “Christmas Wrap-Up”
