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!  

WE MADE IT TO 2021!

2020 was a rough road to travel on, but thank goodness we made it to 2021. Let’s spread kindness and love as we embark on the journey through this new year. I love you all!

Another Year Behind Us. Hello, 2019.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I’m so glad to have made it through another year, and I’m glad you guys made it with me. May not be a big deal for some, but for me, that’s enough reason to celebrate. Cheers!

At the beginning of 2018, I made a resolution. Though I tried, I wasn’t able to reach my goal. Part of the reason was due to something that happened in my personal life, and the other part was due to my lack of drive to make it happen. Earlier last year, my hubby fell ill, right after my boys got over a bad flu. It caused a big scare. As a result, I directed all of my attention to my better half’s health, totally disregarding my chatty characters and even my own health. I was so concerned about him, I didn’t even realize I was sick myself. It was a respiratory infection, which truly sucks for someone with bronchitis asthma. *sigh* Thankfully, I caught it before it got really bad.

Nevertheless, throughout it all, my writing suffered. Life happens so it couldn’t be helped. That just means I have to push harder to get ahead just in case life throws another monkey wrench my way.

That said, I’m going to do things differently this year. Instead of announcing my new year’s resolution, I’m going to keep to myself and make it happen. I won’t TALK about it, I’ll BE about it. That’s my motto this year and I plan to stick with it.

I have high hopes that you’ll be able to stick with your plans to reach your goals as well. Let’s do it together!
