Writing

This month started out super well for writing. I started the next series on Acme Hero Inc. I also started editing Calliope (hopefully for the final time). My Nano book for 2016 has been sitting unread for the last two months. TWO MONTHS!!! and I haven’t touched it. It has been a struggle and I am thinking that I am going to try and make it until March before I read it.

Books

January Books

I am seven books through my sixty book yearly goal.

Life

2017 started out so well. I mean, aside from the whole Trump thing, things were looking up. My coworker was back from maternity leave and work was getting more fun.

But then my dad got sick. An infection that spread forcing him to endure multiple surgeries and wound care. Needless to say this kicked my ass. I have been known to be emotional and when someone I love is injured or sick I do not handle it well.

My dad getting sick got me thinking about when Sarah was sick and what a hard time I had dealing with that. It drug up a lot of emotions and stopped me from producing. I wasn’t writing or sewing, just sitting around.

Projects

The Bow Tie Project is going great. I am still enjoying making bow ties and am learning a lot about how to make them. There are so many fabrics I am looking forward to making and I can’t wait to share them with you here.

And drawing is back. I started doodling during inktober and have remembered how much I love drawing. And because I don’t have enough projects going I think I will start posting more of my drawings.

I have also started blogging a lot more. Weekly posts, bow tie project, book reviews and a monthly post. So much blogging, and now it is at dylan.blog, which is awesome.
