2013 - End of Year Update

2013 Reading Challenge

2013 Reading Challenge
Nicki has completed her goal of reading 150 books in 2013!

So, another year ends. Despite many hold-ups along the way, I finally made my Goodreads goal for the year thanks to a final dash in the last couple of weeks. I may set my goal for 2014 a little lower to allow for any unforeseen events.

2013 has been a very mixed year for me. On the one hand, hubby and I found a lovely new house which already feels like home, but on the other hand, I have had a lot of stress in my day job the past six months which has had a very adverse affect on my writing and has left me now in a sort of malaise with no enthusiasm to do anything now that I finally do have a little free time over the holidays.

Oh well, the year will be over in less than 12 hours and I hope 2014 will be better for me. My goals for next year are to: 1) finally shift this weight I've put on since moving to Australia 6 years ago (ideally I want to lose about 15 kilos); 2) start writing in earnest again and send something to a publisher within the next year; and 3) get back into blogging as I've been a little slack this year what with everything else going on.

Wish me luck, one and all, and I wish all my readers all the best for 2014 and hope all their dreams and aspirations for the year will come to fruition.
