#31 Sundays are for Small Projects

I mostly didn’t lift a finger today, but I did carve out time to put together and mount our wall lamps for our bedroom. I love it! We got these dimming Edison style light bulbs – this is great for our bedside because we can adjust the lighting for bedtime reading and it’s really warm, which is great for winding down when you want to avoid blue light before bed. But our bedroom is basically done and I’m in love!

Tonight was also the finale of Game of Thrones. We watched it. It was meh. The series finale just confirmed all of the problems I’ve always had with Game of Thrones – the creators and writers don’t know how to write female characters. One positive thing that did come from this flat ending was a re-invigoration of my passion for my own book. Aspiring authors – write the books that you want to read.

If you’re feeling meh about the series finale of Game of Thrones and you want some recommendations, then consider Samantha Shannon’s The Priory of the Orange Tree and Susan Dennard’s The Witchlands Series. Or consider joining up with DnD group!

In the meantime, I’m going to get back to writing my novel and lose myself in my own fantasy world that I’ve created. Expect some writing updates soon!
