Dear 2013

Dear 2013,

Thank you for the magic and incredible learning curve…

2013 has been a big year for me personally and professionally. I cannot wait for the unexpected journeys 2014 will bring.

Have a great start to the New Year everyone. Make 2014 yours in every way possible and discipline your disappointments if things don’t always go according to plan. They never do, but you have the power to control your attitude. Always.

As for what I’ll be doing to see 2013 off? Think of me rock climbing into the sunset with great friends.

Love and light,

Anushka xx

Ps: I would like to give a shout out to Amanda Martin fromWriterMummy. She has almost completed her 365 day blogging challenge – which is insane since she has two young kiddies! x


Around Here ::


I kill succulents. I really do.

Happy Holidays everyone! It’s crazy how busy the last couple of months have been and then, BAM, Christmas. This time last year I was planning for a wedding and it’s crazy to sit back and reflect how full this year has been.

The 3rd draft of Dancing Peregrine has been completed after much procrastination, dead ends and stalling. The last few days included 14-16hour days and 35,000-40,000 revised/rewritten words… which is completely insane looking back! On the plus side, I have fallen back in love with the revision process  since becoming more ruthless with my work and tearing everything to shreds. Everything. I’ll blog more about my WIP next year and fingers crossed 2014 will be the year this baby gets submitted and sent out into the wild.

As for the remaining few days of 2013, I’ll be filling it with things I love, reflecting and remembering the things I am grateful for. I’ll also be wrapping up beta reading for a writer friend, trying in vain to have a clean house for 2014 (revision madness does not include housework unfortunately) and squeezing in a quick road trip to the land of volcanic lakes.

Would love to hear how you will be spending the last few days of 2013 🙂

Love and light,

Anushka xx
