Yet another year comes to a close, and I find myself thinking about the events of this past year. It has been a wild ride for me since the summer was one of the hardest summers I’ve had in a while. However, I did publish an ebook. I also took a chance dating someone new, and it worked out for the best since he is moving in at the end of April. I’ve lost people who were not good for me, and I’m finally in a relationship that makes me happy. I love him, and it’s been a few years since I’ve been this happy. I’m finishing the last semester of basic classes before taking ones in my field. The next year I will be taking strictly major and minor classes. I love it! Journalism classes this semester. I can’t wait to get back into it. I also have my goals already for the 2015 year which is to finish the four projects I need to get done maybe 6. I also will try to publish a paperback and audio books as well. I want to read more fiction and non fiction books and review them on my blog. I really should blog more because I’ve been bad about updating the blog. I hope I can do them all, and thanks for being there through everything.
I have not been updating as much as I said I will because I have been very busy working. I have a smartphone now the Samsung Galaxy S3, and I do plan on doing a review on it since it helps me so much that I use it every day. I am reading some writing books and working on the paperback I have planned the will have the first killer short, retail story, Obsession Spell, and two other stories just for the paperback. I have stories to touch up before sending them to the editor, and the retail novel to go through. I hope everything will be done in a few months no guarantees since school starts back up on the 7th. I will try to update the blog more, and happy holidays!
I finished a project like actually finished. I did something productive besides video games. Besides watching tv shows reruns and movies. It felt good writing until my eyes burned. Writing until the END. The end of a project I loved. Starting the project then finishing as opposed to starting on a new one without finishing. That is a feeling I missed. Time well spent. Time into finishing a writing endeavor. That is what I lacked and missed. I get all theses writing books and magazines to read I never finish them. I should, but work makes me so tired I cannot work at all. I do not want to work at all when I get off if I have to work the next day.
I am not getting out of retail though if I cannot focus on my goals: Finish and edit story. Get agent, publisher, and editor. Have book in physical hand after I get the contract signed. That will be a goal worth fighting for, and I loved the feeling of being productive enough to finish a project. Any thoughts to stay motivated despite working so much?
