FOTW | December madness, Writing & Covers

In the life

December is the busiest month in the whole year for me and to be honest I feel quite exhausted and under the weather at the moment. I spent my weekend with my closest friends gift giving and playing Monopoly and singing karaoke and at a dorm party which was fun and most of the activities of this month have been fun but with everything piling up and the whole planning for the new year -- yes, that really has got me stressed out. This year's Christmas isn't really my thing now, I guess. But that's probably because of the situation I'm in mentally that makes it all bothersome. 

You know when you sometimes just want to sleep for a year or so? That's me at the moment. Which is quite depressing and I feel sorry for you readers who have to see/read me like this. But I'm not one for celebrating when I don't feel like it at all. Also, I'm caught up preparing for exam week! Wish me luck :-)


Writing

I'm currently editing and rewriting two of my next books to be self-published, although I still have to update various books on my Wattpad, too. The thing is I'm such a perfectionist when it comes to writing in general, which is why it takes so long for me to actually post a new chapter because I feel differently about my writing every day and have to edit, add some details, delete some passages, rewrite them again ... Now you know why I'm such a horrible, sporadic updater.

I seriously admire those writers who just write and update, write the next and update. They manage to update every few days and keep it up whereas I am just here struggling with myself.


Reading


The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde is known for its focus on Dissociative Identity Disorder and I'm currently reading it for research purposes for my story Paper Cuts that is about the condition of having a split personality. The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde is a very interesting and gripping novel from the 1880s.


Watching

Dodie's music video for her song Sick Of Losing Soulmates is absolutely lovely and I still adore the song so much.


I absolutely adore Chris Brenner's voice and fell in love with his cover of Death Of A Bachelor. Enjoy!
