Mine gave me the time to finally write that Christmas story that has been on my mind for the past two years. I kept putting it off, focusing on other things, but the holidays (that I spent with my family in the Netherlands) were the perfect timing to sit down and write.
I've now finished a first version and am currently in the process of editing it. I'm also talking to a few people about designing a cover - exciting! All in all it's a little over 12.000 words and hopefully, it will be ready soon...
It's part of The Silver Braid Heritage - which will be a collection of short stories in the near future! I've already put up a bit of information about it, you can find it here.
If you still have days off from work - or school - I hope you enjoy them. As for me, I was one of those people who flew back to the UK on January 1st. The plane was awfully empty. A little pathetic, yes, I know, but I had to work today.
Wishing you all the best for 2015 - may all your dreams come true!
