1. I signed my first contract with an publishing house!
The day I learned my book Devonna was going to get published was just unreal.
Sometimes, you plan out the year to go in a certain direction and then life takes you competely by surprise and pushes you on an entirely different path. This was 2019 for me.
I had planned the greatest unusual trips for myself, but then I got an email from a publishing house with the most amazing news an aspiring author could possibly hear, and the launch of my very first book took all the time and energy that I had. I postponed many trips. But it’s okay.
It’s more than okay.
And I still got to do loads of travelling and adventuring in 2019, (just not as much as my travel-addict ass is used to). I’m still super happy about that.
Here’s what my year looked like in terms of travels.
2019 was a great year for me in terms of writing (my first book got published!) and living (I spent the summer writing and doing small roadtrips and camping trips with friends, and I went to Prague and Austria again in May!) but it wasn’t what I’d hoped for in terms of reading unfortunately.
I only read 44 books instead of the 52 I’d set for myself, and I feel like I DNFd a lot of books this year, but I’m still really proud of everything I’ve accomplished in the last year.
But without further ado, here’s my Top 10 Books I Read in 2019! Continue reading “Top 10 Books I Read in 2019”
I took this photo on a very hot day at the Plaza del Toro.
the sand had settled
but still reached my nose
the sun was evil
blinding all of those
who thought the battles
were just meant for ghosts
i was told
more than once
there’s a spark Continue reading “Travel Memory Rambling – Banff”
I want to start this weekly challenge where I pick a random photo from my previous trips and use it as inspiration to write a short piece.
I took this photo on the beach of San Juan del Sur.
the sky was a mess of blood
the clouds had been massacred
no one could say how it happened
no one was left to tell the tale
