Hey, we did it! If you’re reading this, we survived the train wreck that was 2020. I sincerely hope that your loved ones fared as well, and that we all do much better in 2021. I’m keeping expectations low and assuming that I’m in for another year doing a lot of reading and playing video games from home, especially since I don’t expect to be in line for a vaccine anytime soon. We’re not out of the woods yet, so let’s ease into January quietly, with no sudden movements.
The final TARDIS haul for this year (Christmas and birthday) was thanks to my “Secret Santa” from the larger family exchange. However, my favorite gift of the season, hand’s down, is the Scythian labrys designed and 3D-printed by my spouse (with the help of coworkers) in the style of The Old Guard. It’s only about the length of my hand, so it’s proudly displayed on my desk rather than added to the sword collection. When I showed it off on Twitter, using the movie’s hashtag, Gina Prince-Bythewood (the director of the movie) liked my tweet!
- My original plan was to add at least another 10k words to Steel Legacy, but that didn’t happen. Oops?
- The house project mostly got completed, though! (The last bit is up to my husband, so there’s little I can control there.)
- Let’s try again for that 10k words to Steel Legacy!
- I also have revisions to make on book 6, Steel Justice, to return to my editor!
