I spent most of the long weekend over here deep in editing mode. I did catch some of the Jubilee celebrations, on TV though not in person. As usual for bank holidays the British weather turned on us and it’s been pretty miserable but perfect writing conditions. While I was absent from wp, I received two blogging awards!
I received the Lovely Blog Award from Rachel at Lost on Planet China
and the Reader Appreciation Award from The Other Watson
I’m bowled over by the support I get from my fellow bloggers! You guys always pick me up whenever I’m feeling uncertain. As I typed The End on my story, I was filled with happiness, excitement, relief and a big bag of nerves because it means my story will soon be sent out into the big bad world and that is scary with a capital S! So I’m relieved I have this safe and warm place online to retreat to.
My other safe havens when things get scary:
- Curling up to watch one of the TV shows I’ve watched millions of times. The ones that make me all warm and fuzzy are Dawson’s Creek, Gilmore Girls and the one that always brings a smile to my face – 3o Rock.
- Opening up a book I can get lost in. I’m currently reading the final instalment of the Wings Series by Aprilynne Pike. Hoping for a happy ending!
- Chocolate. Enough said.
- Listening to some of my favourite music. Kelly Clarkson is playing as I type this.
- Making a change I can control and isn’t in the fates of others. I think I might dye my hair again. My current colour is going a bit ginger, I think I might have to go back to dark brown.
But right now, I shall catch up on my favourite blogs as that always makes me feel better!
What are your safe havens?
