  1. I’ve also done nanowrimo. It’s not easy! Co Grayson on not only finishing but releasing the book as well.
    Sorry to hear about your grandmother; my husband lost his in March as well, but it was sudden and unexpected for us.
    Like you, our 2016 was full of ups and downs. Here’s to hope and possibilities in 2017 for all of us!

  2. You are a true inspiration. It’s very true that if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything. Good on you! I feel a little bit more inspired this morning.

  3. Blimmin eck! 47,000 words in two days?! Do you even sleep lady?
    I feel put to shame by your extraordinary work ethic but might just have a go myself. Not the novel though. No way. Or would I?

  4. You inspire me! To be able to do something you love for a living is a major goal. Keep at it, girl!

    2016 was utterly insane for me and my family but I’m optimistic about the new year. 🙂

  5. I’m in total awe!! Seriously amazing year for you. I’m sorry about your grandmother but boy would she be proud of you! You really are so inspiring that i feel I need to get up and go do something amazing today so thank you for the virtual kick up the proverbial my lovely #BloggerClubUK

  6. Well done! Very impressed with your NaNoWriMo effort, I can’t imagine how you managed 47,000 words iin 3 days – your poor fingers must have been aching! I tried doing it too but managed 26,000 which was really disappointing. Good luck with getting an agent and publisher for your book – sounds like that might be the achievement for 2017?

    For us it was 2015 that was marked by huge tragedy for our family. My husband and I lost our fathers in six months of each other. Then December that year we had our beautiful third baby. It taught us lots of lessons and one go for it #bloggerclubuk

  8. Amazing achievements – and you’re such an inspirational person! It’s making me think about what I want to achieve in my life goals in 2017 – can’t believe we’re a month in already!

  9. 2016 was a real mixed bag for me, real highs and lows. But yes I agree that you can only achieve what you set your mind on and it can be great! #bloggerclubuk

  10. What a year you had! But what you have achieved and that mindset of doing anything you put your mind to is fantastic and clearly works! 2016 was an up and down one for me too I got married which was the biggest highlight but there has also been stress and difficulties. I’m taking some determination and positive thinking from you though and thinking if I put my mind to things in 2017 I can achieve them!
