2013 in review

As promised, I'm going to try and remember the high lights of 2013.

The top high light was my getting married to my wonderful husband, Daniel Lucas.  We were married on June 7, 2013 in St. George, UT.  About a week later, we had a second reception/open house in Texas.

In May, I moved into our current apartment, leaving behind the single life and living with roommates.

January and February, I finished out Black Blood Brothers: Shadows From The Past, a fan fiction radio drama that I had started the year prior.  Also in February, my, then fiance, got me a sword, a replica of Arwen's sword from Lord Of The Rings.

March showed me going to a convention in Southern Utah, where I held a small panel on voice acting.

April was pretty par for the usual course, with nothing really sticking out, aside from wedding planning and preparations.

July saw summer in high swing, with me picking up my novel, The Unknown Elf, once more, brushing off the dust and getting going on editing it.

August was the end of a school year at the preschool I work at, and the start of a new year, with me in a new classroom with a new co-teacher.

September, I turned one year older, got used to a classroom full of very challenging soon to be two-year-olds. I decided to take a break from radio drama for a few months so that I could catch up on writing, scripting, and editing.

October was Halloween, and though we didn't do much for the holiday, it was a nice change of pace, and I took a much needed day off from work to catch up on life outside of my day job.  I also got feedback on my story and started a second string of editing for the year.

November saw me with my co-teacher on vacation and I learned some new things about the kids I teach, as well as giving me the chance to edit my story in earnest.

December, I completed what I hope will be the final draft of my story and have sent it off to my readers for their input.  Also celebrated my first married Christmas with my hubby, and took my own time off from work over the holidays.

What does the new year hold for me? Hopefully putting out at least twelve more episodes of my Fruits Basket radio drama, all of Mimiko's Vacation radio drama, and getting a book published.  I wouldn't mind if there was a bundle of joy somewhere in the mix, though there are no current plans in that regard.
