New Year, New Plan.
I want to start this post by saying, thank you. For a bit over two years now I have really enjoyed meeting everyone and being inspired by this community. I have learned so much and grown more than I could have imagined.
This last year 2014, I had the joy of seeing my son born. As anyone who has children knows, there is nothing like it. So I will hold that year as special for that reason. Unfortunately it was also one of the harder years I have had in a very long time.
Many personal reasons, some I have shared some not, have made this the case. I am the kind of person to be optimistic and try to push through no matter what. This means I made plans and constantly saw them fall away from me. It was very discouraging to say the least.
My writing and my blogging took a major hit and I felt, if I am honest, a bit lost.
The good news is, writing is a part of me and no matter what happens I don't think I could stop even if I wanted to. Rest assured I don't want to.
So I took January and really looked at everything. I got my beta readers, my CP and my editor and told them of my plans. Which I guess is another way of saying, I have a plan.
2015 will be a good year for me. I will be finishing my third book in the Light Bringer Saga. I also have plans for a new series coming out this year and I can't wait for everyone to hear about it. In the next few months I will be showing that cover for Light Bringer I talked about a bit back.
For me I didn't want to do New Year's resolutions. I wanted to instead make permanent changes in my life that will last and take me where I want to go. I feel like I have started to accomplish that and so I am very optimistic and very hyped for this year.
Anyway, I hope to see you all around more often and I can't wait to be inspired by your words. As always, have fun and keep writing.
