Happy New Year 2014! New Year’s Resolutions and More…

Last year I mentioned that I wasn’t really into New Year’s resolutions, but I still gave myself three little goals to achieve, and today, I’m going to review it and see what happened.

The first one was to focus on writing. Then I elaborated: And I sincerely hope that in the end of 2013, I am left with at least one polished and completed novel, ready to be published.

That didn’t come true. Well except that instead of ending up with a novel, I ended up with a short script, which I am now writing into a novella.

That isn’t disappointing or surprising though, because I know that this year was a year full of school work, being my last year in secondary school.

And that’s how my second resolution had been to work hard at school, focus on my studies.

Which I hopefully did? I don’t know I am still waiting for the results!

Then the third and final goal I had set myself was to find where I stand. I quote: I want to finally find my whole identity. I want to know – no, to be sure of – where I’m going. Who am I? What’s my mission? 

Did I succeed this one? I don’t know. Maybe. Or maybe I still have yet to learn about myself. In any case, during the year there were a lot of confusion and ups and downs about my identity and plans for the future. Fortunately, today, I know exactly where I am going and I know myself better than a year ago.

I know what I have to do😉

The Day Dedicated to Love

When I say ‘love’ I mean universal love, i.e. should it be partners’ love, parental love, friendship.

I think it’s too bad to only believe that St. Valentine’s Day is only celebrated by lovers. At school we all wished one another a happy St. Valentine’s Day and one of my friends told me that she was going to go out with her family for dinner tonight. Because they live in love.

So I love my friends and family… and my fellow readers and blogging buddies!

That’s why I’m going to share the awards I received recently and I’m going to ‘pass the love on’ as the saying goes.:)

With all my heart, I thank:

1. MoonLightened Way for the One Lovely Blog Award.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter

In Mauritius we are currently not in winter but in summer! Yep I always celebrate Christmas in summer ^^  But winter can also be associated with our moments of sadness and depression. When we feel bad, winter has settled in our mind. It’s all gloomy and dull…
But then we only need to light a match to melt the snow, to think positively again:)

This was my little cousins playing with sorts of firecraking sticks (harmless and beautiful!) for New Year.

In this wonderful period of renaissance (New Year) we should light up our inner winters and let the sun shine through!

NaNo is stalking Me!

It’s really true you know, the fact that your characters tend to build the story by themselves. My NaNo novel is quie different from my actual planning, but that’s great. As I type on, I keep getting more ideas, I get to know more about my characters. It’s awesome!

And how is NaNo stalking me? Well, my story is about Angels and Daemons and right now I’m concentrating on the most gorgeous one called Gabriel, and on Saturday when I went shopping, I could stop seeing ‘angelic’ things. Don’t worry, no Hallucinations! What I mean is that in stalls I could see clothes which make you feel like you are an angel when you put it on, just like this one:
