If You Say You're Going To Do Something, Do It! #2016
So this is a quickie!
Last year, like all years, has had its ups and downs. I had a big learning curve in the romance department, but it's done me good, because I am entering 2016 no longer with this dire need for a man. I am learning to be happily single.
In this past year, I've seen my second book come out in eBook and paperback, and I've finished writing my third. I don't like really setting resolutions, more like plans.
I want to continue in my efforts to stay fit and healthy, and remain in my size 10 jeans.
I want to write another book (book 4) and aim to get book 3 published by the end of 2016.
I want to support friends and family where I can, have mini adventures with my kids, and even some on my own.
I want to read to as close of my target books to read in a year (30) as possible.
I want to chip away slowly at the home improvements required in my house. I have said I must spend more time in the garden, and this can be achieved without affecting the writing time, because I am no longer chasing the dream of finding my soul mate. I will not chase men.
I want to be happy, positive and supportive. And to have fun. As I get older I see how quick these years whiz by.
Some of these things I may not have huge amounts of control over. The book being published, relies on a publisher liking it. Some adventures will require money I'll have to save.
My motto or mantra for 2016 will be: If you say you're going to do something, do it!
I'm looking forward to 2016 too. I will have been writing for ten years! But maybe I'll save that for another blog post. :)
Finally, I want to wish all my friends, family, followers, readers and fellow writers a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
