No one I know has said that 2020 was a good year. Yes, good thing may have happened, but they were definitely overshadowed by COVID-19.
As of today, in the past twelve months, there have been over two million deaths worldwide. That is a huge figure and I cannot imagine how devastating it has been for the families of those people. I can only give my condolences.
In Australia, we have only had 909 deaths. Only. Even that many, is too many. We have restrictions in place, which change regularly. But whatever we’re doing seems to be working, so I’m pleased about that.
Other things happened in 2020. My blood disorder resurfaced, which meant I had to go back on injections that made me very sick. I started to improve after Christmas, but had a sudden downturn. I’m currently seeing my doctor and specialist about that, but hope we have a plan that works out positive.
Also in 2020, I managed to read 33 books. Most of them were audiobooks, which I listened to while on the treadmill or out walking the dog. Never in my life have I listened to so many audiobooks. I must say that I loved it. And I loved the fact that I was multitasking too.
During 2020 I was working on my next writing project. It took me some months of planning and the rewriting phase was slow, but I was fine with that as I want the book to be great. Unfortunately, when the injections started, the rewriting stopped because I was unable to focus and didn’t want to ruin any chapters.
However, I have restarted the rewriting of that book over the last few days. I had to fix the last part of the last chapter I had been working on as it was lacking…everything! But, that is done, and I’ve happily moved on to the next chapter. I cannot give a timeline for when it might be finished. I don’t intend to rush it.
Now it’s 2021. The year started out dodgy, but is now improving. I’m not looking for wealth or fame. My first aim is to be healthy and happy. If I have those two things, the rest will follow.
