MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE + what I've learned in 2017

Hey there, guys... First of all, I just want to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you!! Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, I hope you really enjoy the holiday season. And I hope you all have a great start into the new year!

ARGH I can't believe it's three days until Christmas?? I mean, I'm excited (because PRESENTSSS) but I'm also slightly freaking out because how has time gone so quickly?? I swear it was the beginning of December just a few days ago, how's it already the 22nd? *sigh*

It's at this time of the year that you start looking back at the year that's ending and thinking about all the good and bad things that have happened. 2017 has been something of a rollercoaster for me. In a lot of ways, it hasn't been a great year. I've been struggling with a lot of anxieties that I'd rather not go into, even though that's getting a lot better now. I was quite ill during the spring: I had two bouts of vertigo, during which I spent a whole w…

Stuff about my WIP (FINALLY THOUGH) + plus SNIPPETOS

SO here's the post you've all been waiting for.

You have been waiting for this, right...?
OKAY WHATEVER. The point is I've been wanting to write this post for about 150 years (or, like, a month) and I'M FINALLY DOING IT YAHOO! 
I want to talk a bit about my current work in progress, the story that's been destroying my sanity for the past month or so! Seriously though... why is writing so hard. I'm constantly panicking that my ideas are terrible and nothing that I've written so far makes sense. I just keep reminding myself that this is just the first draft; it's MEANT to be bad. I'll just make it better while editing.
Anyway, here's the blurb for my WIP:

Fifteen-year-old Ashley Lenham is dying.
There's only one hope for her: cryogenics. Having her body preserved in the hope that one day, a cure for her terminal illness will be found...
One hundred and thirty-two years later, Ashley opens her eyes. She's been cured, she…

The Spaceships and Vampires Monthly Writing Challenge: December

YES I changed the name of my monthly writing challenge because I'm awesome and I wanted to and I'm not blogging under Indigo anymore, so I sort of had to. I wanted to make it the same as my blog's title but my blog's title is way too long and it would sound awful and WHY DO I ALWAYS HAVE TO PICK BLOG TITLES THAT ARE SO FREAKING LONG GOSH DARN IT -

Anyway! Welcome to December!! Is anyone else in shock over the fact that IT IS ALREADY DECEMBER and that means that in a month's time it'll be 2018?? Like???? Where has this year gone??? (I think I moan about time going too quickly at the start of every Monthly Writing Challenge post, lol. I'm sorry, but every time a month passes I realise how freaking quickly this year is flying by and it makes me go nuts.) ACTUALLY I'm lying haha it's not December for me yet at the time of writing this; in a surprising turn of events I'm actually being organised for once and writing this up a couple of days before it…
