New Beginnings!

I'm not even going to attempt to write a story about what happened to me since my last update. I mean, my last post was Pre-COVID. Ah, to be young again...
Anyway, here's a summary of the last three years:

- hypomania
- relapse
- lost job
- started writing
- recovery
- new job
- stopped writing
- burnout, sick leave
- started working out
- worked out too hard and got overtraining injury
- stopped working out
- resumed job
- panic and anxiety
- burnout, sick leave
- PTSD diagnosis
- started writing again
- started working out again
- started EMDR

All caught up? Good. Now we can move forward. Rather than continuing posting about my daily life I'm gonna be posting about writing. I'm currently working on a fantasy novel, which is very therapeutic for me and a great way to satisfy my brain's craving for new information. Designing an entire world from scratch means I need to research so many different subjects to make things make sense. And I absolutely love researching different subjects. Always have, but now I get to put all of that research to good use by channeling it into building my fictional world.
I'm not planning to post material from my novel here, but I will be posting other snippets, musings and writing exercises I feel would be fun to share. And will probably write a bit about my writing process while I'm at it. Since English isn't my first language I am sure I'll make some errors, but bear with me, mkay? ;)
Until next time (which I hope won't take me three years...)
