Wednesday Writer’s Update 1/11

Afternoon dear friends. The first 11 days of this year have been such a bizarre mish mash of delightful contentment and total irritation. LOL. I feel like a manic teenager. But sugar detox will do that to you. I fell off the sugar wagon at Christmas. sigh. It happens every year. But I rarely get back to good so early in the New Year. Last Thursday I said enough is enough and I put myself on a 5 day detox.

I also decided to continue with my December  routine of only doing the things that have to be done when I feel like doing them. But I did decide I should put on my big girl pants and do one thing each day I don’t want to do but has to be done. So how is that working? Let’s do a check in.

Writers Goals:

1. Publish my Spy Novel in March.

Encourage beta readers to get their feedback in. – I have sent a sweetly worded please get back to me soon email to all my betas. I have 2 of 6 back to me at this point. Both want more character development but the character they wanted developed is different in both cases. Again in complete opposition. One person says Gareth is fabulously developed, the other wants more Gareth development. sigh. Why can’t people agree?

2. Marketing – something new each month

I have done nothing towards this yet.

3. Take a break from writing until when I dream I’m writing I don’t wake up in a cold sweat.

I will still blog 3-4 times a week. Never fear.

Non Writing Goals:

1. Up Yoga to 6 times per week.

Currently getting up at 645 and I haven’t missed a day of yoga in almost 2 weeks. It helps I’m having the kiddo join me now. Less meditative for me, but I still get something and it seems to be helping the kiddo with his home school work.

2. Make more time for my friends.

Interviewing a sitter in about 20 minutes. Wish me luck. LOL.

How about you? What sort of start is your year off to?

  1. Year is off to a pretty good start for the site for me at least. I like having a co-host now. Its been a frantic scramble to get some stuff organized and such, so I can’t wait until everything smooths out.

    I made a goal to read UNDER 250 books this year. So far it’s not going well. I’ve already read 12 books 😦

  2. A friend of mine has just surprised me publishing a book of poetry out of the blue ( not the title though with her could be appropriate!) … so instead of still talking about publishing a book I’ve this week sent a few chapters off for critique by a local author and editor, putting my money where my mouth is, this year the way to get this thing done.
