Celebration Time

Rainbow flags all over the city. Here at the Nordstan shopping mall. The local Pride festival is happening next week and it’s the first non-socially distanced one since the pandemic. So looking forward to it! In other news, I just finished the first chapter of the second novel of the series I’m writing. I’m aimingFortsätt läsa ”Celebration Time”

It is done!

Yesterday, I wrote the last words to the novel I’ve been writing. Finishing the last chapter took a bit more time than I expected but it also ended up being longer than I originally planned. I’ve got some editing and additional proofreading to do before it is ready to be sent to publishers and literaryFortsätt läsa ”It is done!”

Life and health

About a month ago, I wrote about my goal of getting healthier after the surgeon who performed my gallbladder surgery warned me that I had a dangerous amount of abdominal fat. Many times in the past, I’d tried to lose weight. I’d do the counting calories thing and even fasted. I’d lose a little bitFortsätt läsa ”Life and health”

So close!

I have only one chapter left before I’ve finished writing the crime novel I’ve been working on for over a year and a half. The book will be twenty chapters and about 250 A4 pages long. I was aiming for 300 pages but I don’t think I can stretch the plot any more without fillingFortsätt läsa ”So close!”

Renewal

I finally had my gallbladder removed yesterday and the operation went well. I wasn’t particularly nervous prior to it since I’ve had a number of health issues through my life that have required surgery, and I know the routine pretty well by now. The only thing that worried me was whether I was going toFortsätt läsa ”Renewal”

A goal reached and a project coming

So, there are two weeks left in this beautiful, spooky month of October. I look back at it and to be honest, I haven’t been as productive as I had hoped. But I did finish another chapter on my novel yesterday. I celebrated the way I usually do: with some ice cream. I hope toFortsätt läsa ”A goal reached and a project coming”

A little bit of writing

I didn’t do much writing today but it was enough to finish chapter 13. I had some ice cream to celebrate: My goal is to finish chapter 14 before the end of the month. I might have a minor surgery sometimes soon so I’m setting the bar low since I don’t know how I’ll beFortsätt läsa ”A little bit of writing”

A Sol’s Day in the Sun

The summer in Sweden is painfully short so it bums me out that I will have to spend most of it at work. I like my job but I prefer being out in the sun. So, I’m making sure to spend so much time as I can in nature on Sundays since it’s the onlyFortsätt läsa ”A Sol’s Day in the Sun”

Blessed

I just had a great week-end visiting my family I hadn’t seen in a while. Also got to see the cats and meet the new one: Now awaits a uncertain week. I got laid off my job last Wednesday and I’m awaiting a phone call from the company I worked for before to see ifFortsätt läsa ”Blessed”
