Weekly Recap – December 20th, 2013

Good news first: I passed my recertification exam! Thank you for all the well wishes and “good luck”s thrown my way. I’m free for another year and eleven months before it comes around again, so I have one less excuse for not focusing on the writing.

Entries on my blog have been slow as of late and I don’t see that changing before the end of the year. I appreciate that most of you still remember to pop in every once in awhile. I hope to have some more content next year, but I’ve been trying to spend the majority of my “free” time working on my novels. It would be really cool to have one finished by this time next year. I think I can, I think I can…

I’d like to wish you all an early Merry Christmas, Happy New Year! Try to stay safe, though if you can’t avoid dangerous situations, remember to pack some bear spray.

  13. Congrats on passing your certification!!! That’s awesome. I hope you had a lovely Christmas, Phillip! Happy New Year to you! I had a great Christmas. For the first time, I stayed away from the Internet and just hung out with family and friends. Now, I’m back in the saddle and trying to catch up.

    1. Thank you Linda! Christmas and New Years were good. Was able to relax a bit, and like you, tried to stay away from the Internet as much as possible. Glad to hear you were successful! Those times are important and giving them as much focus as one can is always the best thing to do in the end. The Internet will be there when we get back. 🙂
