Happy 2019!

Happy New Year everyone!

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:

WRITING:

  1. Submit "Something About Alexis", and if I'm lucky, see it published.
  2. Finish the unnamed MSIP.
  3. Finish the short story.
  4. Start a new story.


PERSONAL:

  1. Get back to the track on a regular basis, and go swimming once in a while at the Lifestyle Centre.
  2. Lower my A1C hemoglobin glucose.
  3. Remind myself that it is okay to reject toxic people, no matter who is demanding I talk to them.
  4. Avoid drama at all costs - it makes my neuralgia flare up, and knocks me off the writing mojo.
  5. Stay positive!

Thanks again for sticking with me everyone... Have a fantastic 2019!
