Yvonne’s Ice Dragon Lounge

About a year ago, I made the decision to leave Facebook behind. Mainly because the app lost its appeal for me once it became shrouded in negativity and drama. But that has been the case with every social media platform. So, after having a conversation with a fellow author, I headed back to FB.

However, instead of hanging out on my regular FB page, I created a group—a safe place where I can engage with my readers and fellow authors, called Yvonne’s Ice Dragon Lounge.

Slogan: What happens in the Lounge stays in the Lounge.

I know it’s cheesy, but it’s the only phrase that came to mind when I thought about what I’ll be sharing in the Lounge.

Now, in this group, I’m not going to have a spam fest and post book promotions every day. I want it to be a fun spot, somewhere we can laugh and share the things we like.

The group won’t be anything like my fan page. It’s going to be a totally different environment.

To Plan or Not to Plan

At the tail end of last year, I made a promise to myself. That promise was to set a schedule and stick to it by any means necessary.

Time to get my ADHD in control!

So, I bought a planner, a bunch of pretty and shiny stickers, then got to planning. It has been a life-changer! In short, planning my day-to-day schedule has become an obsession. But this is a good obsession—at least I think it is, or more so, that’s what I tell myself.

Having a physical planner staring me in the face every day makes it almost impossible to avoid the task I set for myself. That’s Almost with a capital A. You see, I’m obsessed with checking off all the items on my daily to-do list. So, I have become a wacky planner fanatic. What’s crazy is many fellow authors tried to get me to join the planner crew years ago. But I figured since I was already extremely busy, I did need to add anything else to my daily duties.

Boy, was I wrong. 🙂

Ready for February!

New Year, New Goals

Now that we have rolled into a new year, what are your plans?

I have so many plans I’ve lost count! However, my primary goal is to stick to my writing and release schedule, and I’ve already hit the ground running. Even while I was celebrating New Year’s Eve, I was writing. To me, that’s a great sign of what’s to come.

2020 really dealt me a curveball. I admit I lost my mojo. The stories and characters were running through my mind constantly, but getting the words typed out to form a solid, enjoyable tale was the problem. I was still writing, just not with the gusto and resolve I’d had in the past. Plus, my family cut into my plotting and writing time on a regular basis. It’s not their fault, though. The responsibility rests in my hands. I should’ve done a better job with setting boundaries for my creative time. I learned the hard way.

Good news is the boundaries have been set. For the most part, it seems they understand my scheduling system. Whether they abide by it is another story. LOL!

Until next time, happy reading!  

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Let’s make 2022 a spectacular year. I’m ready! I hope you are. I can’t wait to journey through this new chapter with you. This will be the best story ever. You’ll see. 😉
