It’s a time of reflection of the past, and it’s also a time of insight over what we anticipate in the future; both in the coming year and the coming decade.

The title alone speaks for itself as to what this post is about, and to be quite frank, this has not been an easy decision for me to make.
Since my update about my third novel from back in January, I unfortunately still haven’t made a lot of progress with writing it.

Seattle is a city that has been on my bucket list for quite some time, and I wanted to use up as many moments during my trip to get to know the place.

I haven’t spoken too much about the progress for my third novel. It’s been almost a year since work began on it and the writing process began over four months ago. But things haven’t been moving as swiftly along as they could be, and as of this month, I think I understand the reason why. Continue reading “Preserving the Mentality and Redefining the Approach”
