Staying Alive, staying alive….


The year fast draws to a close and it has really been an eventful one with a few dashes of rainbow and a lot of World mishaps.

Let us be prayerful that the next few weeks will be calm, joyful and refreshing.

On a personal note, by the end of the year, I will be thankful for having survived a turbulent World.

In today’s World where even the mundane part of life seems fraught with danger, we should be grateful for each day that we spend successfully as we lay ourselves down to sleep.

By the end of the year, I would have been running my blog nonstop for 7 months and should have concluded the draft of one of my books.

It was my hope to finish two of them, but with blogging in the mix and other duties that beckon for my attention daily, without ceasing, I had to focus on one and take it easy so that I don’t break down whilst trying to hurtle at a full-on break-neck speed.

I am currently at 50,000 words + and may be closing in with 70 to 80k words or so. I am not sure.

Being alive these days is a major achievement and it is only when we are successfully alive at the end of the year that we can count how many eggs our chickens have laid.

      2. I definitely know how that is. Have you tried writing them down to go back to? I will drive myself nuts with so many ideas so start, but I’m trying to get into the habit of writing them down and get to it later. Yet, I’ll still try to do them all. Lol

  2. Congrats on being so close to finishing your book. I hope that you can share your story with many people. I have been working on a book, it’s so hard to write such a long thing, I think it will take me years and years lol. I’m glad your well.
