2018 saw a lot of changes in my life, and except for the last three months of it, it was a rough year.
Marnie says "2018 can kiss my fluffy grey pantaloons, Mama!", which sums up how I felt about most of the year.
We all know the horrible things that happened last year in my end of the world, so I'm not going to rehash it. I am still crying over Amber's passing, a lot. She left a huge hole behind, one that Marnie is helping to heal.
2019 is starting off with a bang... A huge one! I am still working on the four projects I've mentioned in other blogs - an unnamed MSIP, a short story, revising a finished draft, and getting "Something About Alexis" ready for submission - and they are priority unless something comes up. Lewen has joined the team of beta readers, which is greatly appreciated.
I have gotten the first round of critiques for "Something About Alexis" from Sara, and it's not as bad as I thought it would be. A few typos here and there, and a small plot hole that can easily be fixed. I gave everyone the deadline of January 30th to get back to me, so I have a couple of weeks to wait on that one.
Last night, I did something spontaneous... I started a Facebook Group attached to my author page!
It's called "Romancing the Maritimes", and although it's brand new, I'm starting to get a few people interested in it. Certain things like early excerpts from works in progress, the first sneak peeks at upcoming releases and a few draws will be EXCLUSIVE to members.
You can find Romancing the Maritmes HERE... Thank you for joining everyone! ♥
My goals for 2019 include:
- Submit "Something About Alexis", and if I'm lucky, see it published.
- Finish the unnamed MSIP.
- Finish the short story.
- Start a new story.
- Get back to the track on a regular basis, and go swimming once in a while at the Lifestyle Centre.
- Lower my A1C hemoglobin glucose.
- Remind myself that it is okay to reject toxic people, no matter who is demanding I talk to them.
- Avoid drama at all costs - it makes my neuralgia flare up, and knocks me off the writing mojo.
- Stay positive!
Thanks again for sticking with me everyone... Have a fantastic 2019!
