I have a million things to do and what did I end up doing yesterday??? Yeah, took a day off. I really need to stop doing that so often. Sure, once in awhile, but not as often as I have been lately.
Sometimes peopling just wears me down and I need to rejuvenate my system. I get that, but man oh man, is this getting a bit crazy.
Hubby is back on his normal run again. So I need to get myself in a new habitual pattern for this new year. Yes, I realized all this during my lay around the house time yesterday. Maybe I just needed to reach that point. That's how I began writing in the first place all those years ago :) I was tired of doing the same old thing day in and day out back then. So I picked up pencil and paper and started letting my imagination wander :)
Seeing as we are only seven days into the new year I do believe I have time to get things in motion to make this year a productive year :) I just have to set myself on the right track. Hold myself accountable for what I get done and yes, most likely go back to making daily lists :) I get so much more done when I make a list of what I need to do.
I am starting to fill out forms for book signings in 2019. I will probably not do many in 2018 if any. I really need to focus on getting more books out in both my Acceptance Series and my Darkness Series, as well as, my contemporary paranormal (which knowing me will turn into a series, LOL).
I've been thinking of new directions in my writing world, not just in writing but in the ways I do things. Hanging out with authors all the time is wonderful, don't get me wrong, but it only takes you so far in this business. I've always known focusing on the readers is where I need to focus my attention, so this year I will be spending more time focusing on readers. Don't get me wrong I will still hang with my author friends, because frankly, they've been through so much with me from just writing to publishing and for that I will always be grateful. But this year it the year I focus on the readers. This is something I need to do for me and for those waiting on my next books :)
I'm also anxious to start sharing some of my research for Passionate Pursuit, book 3 in the Acceptance Series. This one will be slightly different seeing as my heroine is the one doing the pursuing :) My sister's Christmas present, Native American Trail Marker Trees, will be a wonderful resource in giving this book a unique twist, as will our own personal research as we spend the warmer months investigating the tree markers in own area :)
Well if I am going to get anything done today I better get busy.
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
