So today I handed in my last assignment for my second year at university. It’s a little bit daunting knowing that in a year I will be leaving uni, but I’m trying not to think about it.
Instead, I thought I should focus on what a great year I have had as a student and as an author, so here goes:
Had a belated birthday Doctor Who style!
My first official month of being Deputy Editor of CCCU Her Campus
I started writing my first book.
Released my first book, The Snow Killer!
And started http://melissaholden.wordpress.com/
On NYE I met some awesome people including my (now ex) boyfriend.
Unfortunately in January, my lovely stepfather who raised me passed away after a struggle with cancer.
However, in memory of him, I released my first poetry book: From Me, With Love
I also started the 100 happy Days project, to find out more check out the website: http://100happydays.com/
In February I decided I was going to move house in July, and decided to live with my best friend and fellow writer, Shelby!
I also started my current novel, Searching for Katherine.
Went to a lot of birthday meals!
Started hunkering down and focusing on my writing. I also hit 20,000 words on my novel, Searching for Katherine.
Started Interview with an Author, which is a hit!
Made this awesome-sauce blog! https://thelifeofa19yearoldauthor.wordpress.com/
Met some amazing people on Twitter and am slowly building up my writing footprint. I also joined Readwave and became a Theme Editor.
had possible the best break up ever with my boyfriend, and now we are really good mates. I realized that I need some one more serious and ready for commitment (shocking I know) and he wants to live in a cave with really good WiFi.
So, one academic year later my life has changed a lot – but for the better. Where loved ones were lost, new friends came about. I hope you are having a good a year as I am!
