Hello humans! Since it’s June I thought it would be a good time to have a look at some of the things I’m trying to do this year and to take some time to get excited about them again. You know how it is, you have grand plans at the start of the year and then the Christmas holiday ends and suddenly you’re stuck in the day to day routine and the projects fall to the back burner. So what am I up to that I’m excited about?
Writing a musical
Yes, I’m writing the music for a fantasy musical we are taking up to the Edinburgh Fringe this year. It’s starting to fall into place now and I am thrilled with how it’s turning out!
Starting a Podcast
More of a back-burner project at the moment but I’m desperate to have another channel to talk about books on (but the idea of putting myself on camera is freaking terrifying). Keep eyes peeled for this in the future!
Writing a Book
I know, I know it’s a cliché and all bookbloggers say they want to write a book. What I really want to do is be an editor, but that’s a LONG way away career-wise so I’m letting my story-based creativity out in different ways.
I recently picked this up as a hobby and am loving it, I like having something to do with my hands while I’m watching TV, otherwise, I just sit and eat, so this is perfect!
Those are the biggest projects I’ve got going on at the moment and, while only one of them has a concrete ‘this will definitely get done’ I’m still looking forward to getting creative and bringing these to fruition!
What projects are you working on this year? Let me know in the comments below!
