First of all: Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays everyone!
I think this is pretty obvious, but there have been no #WriteFridays this month. While furiously trying to get caught up with NaNoWriMo last month, I hurt my wrist a bit, so I’ve been taking things easy. On top of that, I’ve been busy getting ready for Christmas and whatnot, so December seemed like a good month for a break.
Of course, that being said, I still had one more Apocalypse Madness story to write to meet my goal of one a month for the year. And today I officially met that goal! Here’s my December story, “Lexy,” which was inspired by the April 2015 quote. For some reason Apocalypse Madness tends to inspire stories with a rather darker tone, so I wanted to write something that was a bit more inspiring and uplifting. I don’t know if I succeeded, but “Lexy” is a story about a girl suddenly gaining confidence in herself to the point where she is already acting like the movie star she knows she will become. If you think about it literally, I guess it has some darker undertones with the idea that her original self will die in favour of this new version (or with the idea that the dream of the movie star has become real, whereas the actual person she was will fade into memory). But for an Apocalypse Madness story, I figure it’s not so bad.
Now that there’s about a week left of December, it’s time for me to start thinking about goals for the next year. On January 1st I’ll be sitting down once again and seeing how I did with my 2015 goals and what I’d like to accomplish for 2016. Most likely I will not be blogging on here before that. So Happy New Year everyone, and see you in 2016!!!
