The Breaking Series Promo!

 

Hi friends!

Last week I finished writing Breaking Through! I still have to revise it, then send it to my editor for 2-3 passes of edits, so it’ll still be 3-4 months before it’s published, but to celebrate the end of the drafting part, I decided to do a promo with Breaking Free and Breaking Away!

My 2016 Plan

 

Hello friends!

 

In the past, I posted about my plans for the year (click here to see the posts for 2012, 2013, 2014-1 and 2014-2).

I got that idea from my friend Jani Grey. If I’m not mistaken, on her first post about it, she mentioned that having resolutions sounded too “set on stone” and when you can’t achieve your resolution, the failing feeling hits you hard. But having a plan, with wants is a better idea, easier on the mind. Also, the list included not only writing/publishing wants, but personal ones too. I agreed, and still agree, and this is why I’m posting my plan for this year below.

Note that I don’t have a post for 2015 … because my baby girl was born in January and I knew I would dedicate most of my time to her. I knew I wouldn’t publish any book in 2015, and barely write. So I didn’t even create a plan, other than to raise my baby girl and spend time with the oldest too.

 

Okay, so on with my 2016 plan:

1. Read at least 52 books. One per week. Though, I do hope to read more than that …

2. Write more. I wrote too little in 2015 – in fact, I only wrote again in Nov and Dec, but I’ve been doing pretty well since then. I hope to keep it up!

3. Spend a little more time on Social Media. For 2014, I posted I wanted to spend LESS time on social media. Wish granted. I’ve been pretty absent in all social media. Even pinterest, which I used to love, haven’t seen a new pin from me in months.

4. Publish at least 3 books. Two of them are almost done and almost ready for my editor – hopefully I’ll be able to publish them both before July …the third one (and more) are still on the limbo. I have too many ideas, I have yet to come up with a schedule for all of them and – the tricky part – stick to it.

These are the first two books I’ll publish this year (finally):

How about you? What are your WANTS for 2016?

Cheers,

Happy 2016!

 

I wish to you and your loved ones…

Writing 300 Words Everyday – Part II

 

Hello friends!

Remember a month ago when I posted about being in huge writing funk, then I found a quote by Stephen King and immediately went on to follow it? That first post was about my progress during the month of Nov while following that advice.

This post right here is to tell you about my progress during the month of December.

I’ve wrote EVERY DAY during the month of December. I didn’t even miss on my birthday, Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. And, because to me writing is addicting, I usually wrote more (and sometimes way more) than just my daily goal of 300 words.

Here’s how the month went:

 

Word count Dec

 

As you can see, it went well, even better than November. And I stuck with it. I’m proud of myself that I stuck with my plan, with the quote. And I’ll continue to do so in January, February, March … And forever, I hope.

(Though, once my baby girl starts halfday daycare, my daily word count goal will increase!)

If you are in a writing funk like I was, let this post (and the previous one) serve as an inspiration for you. 300 words is not much that it’ll disrupt your busy day, but enough to make a difference after a couple of minutes months.

I can do it, you can do it!

Cheers,
