As the year 2013 comes to a close I find myself excited, and sad at the same time. Excited because I finished John Tyler in May 2013, and transferred to VCU in fall 2013. It was a challenge going from a community college to a university. I can handle it more now than when I started since I did not know what to expect. It made me sad since I did not get my paperback out liked I had hoped. And I am free of the negative influences in my life, and I have found people to get to know that I consider good friends. This year I also went to my first anime convention, and I should have enjoyed it more than I did. It was also the year I got engaged to my boyfriend of four years, and that is an accomplishment. I did so much it is not even funny, and I am looking forward to the future since one of my goals is to do better in VCU to get all A’s and B’s. I also had my second ebook published too, and that is a good accomplishment too.
I plan on making 2014 a better writing year. I plan on getting The Killer Contract Agency republished. Revenge against the Ex rewritten and published. I plan on writing Retribution is mine, and Redemption is mine this year. I plan on making them both into paperbacks as well as Tales of the Luxor and Crystal Crest realm out. Two paperbacks, and five ebooks will make this year rock. I plan on writing posts for my blogs Reviews for Writers, and Survey of Pop Culture to do more reviews on writing books, movies, and television shows. Also I have finished the novella Being a Vampire in Retail Sucks, and I am waiting for the okay from my proofreader, cover artist, and beta readers. As soon as I get the cover I am hitting publish it will be $2.99 because of how long it is, and the effort I put into it.
2014 is going to be an awesome year since I am going to become a more prolific writer, and I cannot wait. Bring it on 2014!
As the year comes to a close I think about my life as of right now. I have wasted time thinking about the past more this year letting stupid drama affect me to the point where I get sick because of it. I have rewritten my first young adult novel over, and I have a smartphone and an iPad now to help me on the go. I have gotten more rewriting in too working on getting the retail novel in shape. I have contacted an editor for the first time to make my work polished for publishing a paperback, and redoing the first short story. I found an editor who is affordable to me since I am a college student on a tight budget, and it required time and effort in between work and school.
I have learned how to procrastinate now more than ever, and in turn it made me put off studying to the point where I have to repeat math 158 since I pretty much failed tests since I did not study as much as I should have. I will do better in school this semester since I know what to expect for math 158 and I have two online, and two in person as well as working part time. I have also come to the conclusion that I need to take better care of myself by getting enough sleep, eating right, and staying in shape. As 2013 hits it marks a new year with me starting a new college in August since I will be going to a four year school after I graduate in May. I am redoing my short story of the Killer Contract Agency by having another peer review of it, and then after doing the changes giving it to an editor to polish it then republishing it with the new version as well as a new cover. I am editing the retail novel then sending it to be critiqued then after an editor and the cover is done I will be publishing it. I am going to put out a paperback sometime this year too, and finally focus on my blog more I know I plan on reviewing writing books too. I am starting classes next Monday so I will have time to read and write in between.
I will just have to see what happens because I know there will be changes in 2013 for me I just hope I can finally make the ones I want this time. I will be taking a Stress and Stress Management Class online too I cannot wait to start that class because stress is the one factor getting in the way of my goals!!
