December 25th can be a controversial time of the year recently. We live in an age where everyone is offended by absolutely everything. Wishing someone a Merry Christmas potentially comes off as insensitive to other beliefs – but when a company removes snowflakes from their holiday cups they are participating in the War on Christmas.
Truth be told I don’t want to stand on a soapbox about it so I just want to extend a Merry Christmas all you readers, and I wish all the best in whatever holiday you recognize this time of year.
Christmas this year serves as a one-week warning of the end of 2015. I’m certain I will look back on this year as the first year I made actual progress towards a life goal. I’m not different from anyone else in that I always tend to make major plans to turn everything around. Like most, they tend to fall short most of the time.
2015 is the year I finished and edited my first novel to completion. By the time 2016 begins my library will consist of one completed novel, a completed first draft of a second novel, and two novellas in my six-eight part serialized tale.
Though there I do have a little bit of news to share. I began the process of establishing my newsletter. Of all the advice for aspiring writers, setting up a mail list tends to be the most frequent piece. So that’ll be ready to go in the new year, I’ll have a sign up widget here on the World Is Broken.
Another tidbit of news is that I finally registered the domain I intend to use as an author. Until I get my website up and running on my own web space I have it redirecting to this blog. So for now if you want to share this site with friends you can link them to http://www.DevinLee.ca
I’m waiting until closer to the New Year before I get all self-reflective here. I’m returning to the tradition of a year end blog post. For now I have to get back to work, that second novella needs to be finished before New Years.
So in short, Merry Christmas everyone!
