Progress Report: Week 3 January 2015

So, this week, I finalised my time at work. It was both sad and frustrating, but also tinged with the tiniest speck of hope that now things will start to move forward. We will see. Already my back is starting to get stronger, and I’m feeling less sick. I’m still sleeping a lot more than I’d like, but that, too, is slowly improving. Stress – who knew?
Anyway, the writing is going well. So far, I have completed a full piece of work for each week in January, and am busy working on the work for February. Of course, the publishing process takes a little bit longer, so you won’t be seeing a release for each week of the month—not yet; not while I still have study obligations, and I do, even though the semester is yet to begin.
I’m almost looking forward to this year. I don’t know what it will bring, and I have no idea where this path will take me, but it looks to be an interesting ride.
