Looking Back at 2020 and Looking Forward in 2021

Hello Everyone!
Hope you are all doing well today!

Today I offer you the mandatory retrospective post, we will take a look at what happen in 2020 and what to expect in 2021.

Before anything I want to thank everyone who stick by me despite the fact that I fell off the blogging sphere for the most part of 2020; it really means a lot for me, so Thank You.

At first I wasn’t sure if I would write this post, I didn’t do much with my blog so I didn’t see the point of making it, however I figure we could look back at what I did as a content creator, but not only as a blogger, but also as a fanfic writer.

First the Blog, as you know I took a long hiatus, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with this blog, I didn’t had the will to write anymore, I had stuff to say, but I didn’t feel like sitting and writing those thoughts, you can call me lazy if you want since it was exactly what I was. Before going on hiatus the last post I have written was an OWLS post after that nothing until October where I post a small update about the future of my blog. I have to be honest with you I didn’t thought I would write anything before 2021 and yet I wrote more post in November and December combine than I wrote between January and May…for someone who wanted to take that slowly.

I might have written on 37 post in the whole year of 2020, but some of them were my favorites.

Looking back at this hiatus, I don’t regret at all taking it, I think I really needed time off the blog and thinking about what I wanted to do, while I’m still not fully sure about the future, I know that I will never fully quit blogging, I might disappear again, but I will come back. For some hiatus just completely kill the interest, in my case in was benefic.

Now I don’t like setting goal or taking resolution, I really don’t feel like burning myself while trying to fulfill it , but if I had to pick one, only one, it would be just continue toi enjoy blogging, simple. I do look at the number once in a while, but it never really matter to me, yes I’m happy when I get a lot of view or gain new followers, but I would be as happy if I had only one view and one follower.

This is for the blog, now let take a look at the other content that I created in 2020, the fanfiction.

In case you didn’t know, I write fanfic, some of the can be quite problematic and I have to say that I use to prefer writing those one, however in 2020 I haven’t wrote one problematic or sexually explicite fic, I did writer some angst, but they where all SFW, ok one have a mention of sex but only one, one on on sixteen, not bad not bad even more for someone who use to write mostly NSFW fanfic, pretty sure some of you will be surprise.

Obviously I like all the fic that I wrote but there is some that I enjoyed writing more than other.

If you decide to read any of them, please let me know what you think, comment are always appreciate.

Looking at the number and I have to say that I’m impress by what I achieved, last year I wrote a total (all fan fiction together) of 46K word, I have to thank to week event for this, not sure if I will be able to pass the bar of the 50K this year, I don’t wanna set any goal, like blogging I want to write when I feel like it.

I do have a few fanfiction that I want to write this year and there I one or two…or three that really need to be finished, so the only goal I will set for myself regarding that is at least finished that one that I started.

In conclusion, for 2021, I want to continue enjoy blogging, so I will write when I feel like it, if there is a whole month without post…well it’s gonna be a whole month without post and I will not feel bad about it, also I wish my fellow OWLS will be back in action soon, not sure I will take part of the tour, but I do miss think about the prompt given by Lyn.

Concerning the fanfic, I want to finish the one I start, maybe take part of other event, will I write a fic per day for those event again? maybe not, but one it’s better than nothing.

One last thing, this time it’s regarding the Sims, you all know that I play a lot to the game (if you don’t now you know), I have a big project that I want to put together which is a save file/Legacy let’s play. I will talk more about it in a future post, but if I had to set a Sims goal, I want to have at least half on it done when 2021 will end.

That pretty everything that needed to be said…

One last thing, thank you for being there and Stay Safe!!

~ Thank you for Reading ~

  1. Wishing you the best of luck on wherever you decide to go with your work. It’s understandable to have a lack of drive or a change of ambition as life goes on, and it’s not always that one retains the same passion for doing what they enjoy as you have. Truly commendable, especially in as much of an interesting year as 2020. Best of luck Mel.
