– What Ness Did In 2015 –
Finally completed a trilogy
It is an incredible feeling. Honestly. I think the second book in this series is my all time favourite piece of work. The heroine is brave and I really got along with her. I felt her pain, guys. *whispers* I felt her pain.
The only down side is that I’ve got dragon fatigue. No. Really. It’s a thing.
And also: I’ve got two more trilogies lined up. Clearly I despise myself.
Rediscovered the amazing place known to us mortals as: The Library
Don’t step foot in this building if you wish to leave book-free. It’s impossible. Right now I’ve got four books out. I wasn’t expecting to pick up any of them!
Read. And read a little more
I’ve enjoyed reading Rosemary Sutcliff, Richmal Crompton, my very first Jane Austen and Jules Verne, Georgette Heyer (because, of course) and let’s not forget Wodehouse. *screams* I love you Wodehouse!!! *cough* and many others …
Travelled to – and through – four countries
‘Bathed in sweat’ became my reality. ‘Scared silly of a massive wasp-evil-hybrid because it’s in the coach too!‘ was another.
Also: ‘Ugh. My tights smell of wet dog. No. They smell worse.‘
Saved the world using ingenious methods
All right, so this hasn’t happened yet. But have no fear, my friends, I’ve been researching a lot and if I have to do it … all will be safe.
Finished a fan fiction project
*gasp* she writes fanfiction?!! I watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier, okay? And Bucky Barnes is a fascinating character, alright? 80,000 words worth of fascinating.
It took me over a year. I feel no shame.
