And in the blink of an eye 2018 has been and gone. Can’t say I’m sorry to see it go.
At the start of last year, I set myself three goals. Here’s a reminder of what they were
Did I meet them all?
Yes I did 😊
OK, Book Baby 4 was launched a little later than planned. Ellen was finally launched on 1st September and quickly found her feet, earning herself five-star reviews on Amazon and Good Reads…whew!
I brought Jake and Lori back to out to play as promised. On 8th May 2018, exactly five years after I sat down to write the story that became Book Baby 1, I sat down once more on my front doorstep and began to write Book Baby 5. Writing about all things Silver Lake has been like being reunited with old friends.
My third goal from last year was to blog once a week. Guess what…. I’ve met that goal too.
Go me!! LOL
So, what creative goals will I set for 2019?
Well, I feel it’s time to cut myself a little creative slack so I’m going to keep it really simple.
My 2019 goal is simply to finish and publish Book Baby 5 in 2019. The first draft is about 40% of the way there but it’s a VERY rough first draft in places!
What’s that saying? …. your first draft is like shovelling sand into the sandbox. You can build sandcastles later ….. or something like that. I’m still shovelling like crazy!
It goes without saying that I’ll continue with my weekly blog posts and who knows, everyone’s favourite dark angel may make an occasional appearance. (I have a longer term plan for those stories but I don’t want to say too much just yet.)
If you read my Christmas Eve short story then you will already have met two new rock star characters. I have the beginning of an idea for them too. (That may need to be in the five year plan!)
I’d like to thank each and every one of YOU for your ongoing love and support. It makes the creative journey so much easier knowing that you guys are there.
What are your goals for 2019? Feel free to share the details in the comments box below.
If your own goals include “read more books” I can think of four to get you started…. Hint hint…
Regardless of what your personal goals are for the coming year, I’d like to wish you health wealth and happiness to pursue them. Remember “Dreams get you started. Discipline keeps you going.”
Love n hugs
