A Quick Review of 2015

2015review

It was a more streamlined year in terms of work. This project took up most of 2015, but I also did a sprinkling of editorial work and continued to get two more books out for The Adventures of Squirky the Alien series. Through a few story assignments this year, I’ve discovered that I really enjoy writing about the arts, and hope to develop more in this area.

2014 had been a truly blessed year where everything seemed to be happening at once. I had so much fun, but this 2015, I felt I had to pace myself slower and deliberately create pockets of space to regroup and reflect. This helped me better manage the everything-happening-at-once phases (most of the time). I didn’t set out to do all that I had hoped to do this year, but I think that there’s been more awareness in the things I do, think and say. I hope this continues in the year ahead!
