Writing Goals for 2019

I have three goals for 2019:

  • Query my mage thief novel. I think it just needs one more revision. And, apparently, a name.
  • Write twelve short stories. This hasn’t historically been my forte, but I have had a nest of flash fiction ideas in the last few days, so I think one a month should be doable.
  • Write a new book! This will probably be my Dream Guild book, but it might wind up being my Mountain Life book instead. Time will tell!

I expect the non-writing front to be much like last year, although I’m hoping to get a better handle on the garden.

Wish me luck!

Recovering from the Holidays

I very much enjoy the holidays, but the time between Thanksgiving and New Years is always breathless, with too much to do and to much to-ing and fro-ing.

I made a bunch of toffee and chocolate clusters for friends and family. I went to Tacoma and Seattle three times in a week. I was supposed to catch up on work while all of my clients were out of the office. I made headway, but catch up? Not so much.

So now we have made it through the holidays, and I am happy to have things getting back to normal.

We’ll have the Christmas tree up for another couple weeks — which means, as far as I’m concerned, we still have the light and beauty of the holidays without the stress.
