Does anyone actually remember me by this point? Ah well, I’m going to continue talking like you are all listening.
HELLO, it’s me, your friendly neighbourhood Viper and if you hadn’t noticed, I have been away a while. This is mainly due to moving house, dealing with some personal life crap & most importantly, catching up on Game of Thrones. That is correct, I am now officially part of the GoT fandom & I am so proud.
Halloween is nearly here and the nights are getting longer. This is my favourite time of year & if you didn’t already know, I am a witch. Yes, literally a witch. I practice witchcraft, I worship nature, I celebrate Sabbats and Esbats. Hocus Pocus and all that jazz. Being a Witch is quite a logical reason for my love of Halloween and Autumn in general. Halloween, or Samhain as it is known to us, is the Witch’s New Year and this time of year tends to pull me out of any creative blocks I may be experiencing and generally it gives me a new spark for life. What I am trying to say is that you will be seeing & hearing a lot more from me & I have so many things to share with you all, so keep those peepers peeled & expect the unexpected. (That was not a hint that your ex is about to appear on a beach somewhere- those in the know, will know!)
By the way, I am currently reading American Psycho. No spoilers, but someone dies…
I’m such a slacker. I cannot express how annoyed I am at the fact that I haven’t posted on here since March 26th! Dearie me, what a let down. However, I am back and I really do plan to stick to it this time. I can tell you are all desperate to hear what I have been up to, so here goes.
Firstly, and probably the most important thing that has occurred in my life lately is that I have a new job! Yep, you heard me right, I am no longer working at Lush. You are probably thinking that I’m mad to give up that job, but in all honesty when it really comes down to it, working at Lush is just a retail job and I’m really not the biggest fan of retail work. Three years was a pretty good run with the company and I made some fun memories of course, but the time came where I needed to move on. Now heres the exciting part; I am now working for St John Ambulance as part of their events team! I am loving my new job and the hours are much better suited to me. As someone who writes, blogs, makes videos and all the other things I attempt to cram into my life, it’s great for me to have my evenings and weekends free.
My novel writing is going well. I now have a concrete plot-line and characters. I spent some time putting together a concrete plan and I re-discovered my motivation for writing. Expect a finished first draft by the end of this year!
My YouTube videos have been extremely successful and enjoyable lately. I am making mainly book related videos, I feel that this makes more sense as it is a subject that I am passionate about and can talk about for hours. It also ties in well with my book writing and I’m using YouTube to document my novel writing. Bex Viper on YouTube
I have started a book club! It’s something I have wanted to do for so long now and I finally took the plunge. It’s still early days but there has been tons on interest, so I’m pleased. If you would like to join the book club then follow this link: Books Bloody Books
I don’t have much else to add on here other than the fact that I did go sober for a month! It was the detox that I needed however, now I’m back on the occasional gin, of course. The plan is to keep up with this blog, using it to document things that interest me, things I want to express and just a place to post general ramblings.
Thanks for reading this rather pointless post and I’ll be back soon!
