So this is yet another manic Monday, there’s a whole seven days left until the next one come and that means there’s seven days to do things, seven days to change out lives or even change the world maybe?
Being a little more realistic with the week it’s been a bit slow on the blogging front, there hasn’t been much going on here this week apart from taking part in the first week of the kindness challenge:
Apart from the blogging world things are on the change, there’s anew job on the horizon and things seem to be looking up – don’t get me wrong it’s still manic but there’s some brightness on the horizon with this change!
Something I have learned recently is about the signposts of life, since September last year many things have been going wrong as if I had taken the wrong path and was being told it was wrong. In the last few weeks it’s been like so many green lights have been shining and I’m hoping this is a good sign fr things to come – we’ll see I guess.
I hope you can all keep up with this spinning planet, I hope you’ll follow the adventures!
I missed out my manic Monday last week as it was a bank holiday and I was otherwise getting up to tricks, but here’s a little bit to catch up on here. Planet Simon is always changing, moving about all over the place and trying news things. I have to say since Murphy’s Law has been kicked I’ve noticed so much more positivity in my life – it makes me think that the universe really is watching what we’re doing.
The new thing to start this week is the start of the Kindness Challenge, run by Niki of The Richness of a Simple life it going to be an interesting look at kindness and how I display it towards myself and others in my life.
Something subtle that you may not have noticed is that the Gallery link has now changed and takes you to my Flikr page, a bit more obvious is the link to my Wattpad account from my page. There’s not much there yet, bu that bring me onto the next thing…
The Titan Mystery is being re-written and re-published on Wattpad and will eventually end up as some kind of novella e-book (I hope). So watch this space – well that space!
There’s exciting things ahead and maybe even a bit more writing time ahead – more to come on this and hopefully this week!
So here we are at March! Well in truth we’re getting on for nearly halfway through the month, so once again I’m late to the welcome party.
This is part of the problem… time or lack thereof!
At this time things are really busy and I get the sense that I’ve taken on too much, but you know you only live once and all that. I’ve not been about much in the last couple of weeks and this is unfortunately likely to be a fairly common thing as I drop internet time to deal with life’s challenges (they’re not even interesting challenges).
But I still see you guys about and I love that you guys are still about and I’m keeping an eye on you. So I will still see you around!
Keep well and keep smiling!
So, finally I’ve got around to saying goodbye to 2016 on this blog. It’s been a tough start to the year with one thing and another, but hopefully will get better personally and see it bloom into a good year.
Looking back on my 2016 blog and writing wise – it was a great year. Looking back I can’t believe some of the things I’ve written. I’ve had so much inspiration from you my fellow bloggies to write more, new different things that its shown me my passion for writing and a taste of what I can really do.
So let’s have a look:
First off let’s look at some of my writing achievements, the biggest piece I’ve written to date is a scifi adventure called The Titan Mystery about the crew of a spacecraft that gets trapped in a time bubble around a huge spacecraft it was surveying.
I’ve been writing a series on The Adventures of Minecraft Steve and it’s something I’ve loved doing and want to do more of. I still have a bit to finish off on a long running story – but I’m hoping to get around to that soon!
On the Brink of Midnight and The Enemy within the Rings are other shorter stories that came from the Blog Battles run by Rachel Ritchey.
A project that I was also pleased with was my series on Solar System Exploration, each post covered a planet or dwarf planet in the solar system, while I made sure there were some good fact in there I was keen to make sure it was more of a story about each object. It’s not finished yet and I’m hoping to go on with this series and then with more – there’s a whole universe out there!
Other things I’ve done have been:
Thoughts on SciFi Films
Where my feet have been
And this is by no means all of it, there’s been pictures too with my magazine Circuit Mechanix and Numpty’z too and just life… the universe and a bit of everything really!
Stick around for the ride this year, I’m not going to be about as much as I was, but I’ve got so many good bloggy friends here and I’m going to try and keep up with you too! Let’s make 2017 a great year shall we?
