Good morning world! Happy New Year! I feel great today and it is a new year. It is time for new things and a fresh start. Sorry, I have not been here in a minute, I have been doing some final touches on my first book to get it ready for publishing. Time to start my new schedule and get things going. It is a brand new year and the possibilities are endless. Last year was a hard year but we made it and the world did not come crashing down on us, yet. It’s time to let bygones be bygones and move forward into a new year without any undue stress or resentment. Let’s all be happy and make this year a year to remember. I am already working on book number two of my nonfiction series and should have the whole series done this year plus a few extra books on the side. I have my goals in place and set, now all I need to do is sprint to the finish line. I hope everyone has a great day and a Happy New Year!! 🙂

Good afternoon everyone. Today is a glorious day, the weather is mild, I hear all of the animals out in the woods making their little noises, and I woke up feeling pretty good. I am pretty much motivated today to finish some more writing and editing of my book and finishing up a short story or two. I hope everyone had a terrific night and got some well-needed rest? I only got up once during the night which is pretty awesome for me. On a good feeling day, I could sit here all night writing to my heart’s content but my husband refuses to allow me to do that. Right now my husband is giving our car an overhaul and rebuilding the carburetor and putting on some new vacuum lines. While he is out working on the car I can get some uninterrupted writing done. I hope everyone is enjoying my writing and I have a list of things to write. Once I am finished with the final editing of my first nonfiction book and receive the cover design back it will be ready to publish. I already have my notes together for the second book of that series and will be starting on it the first of January. There is nothing like having deadlines and goal dates to keep you motivated. My health is improving and I don’t feel so sick today but there are still the body aches and diabetic neuropathy to deal with but other than that I am doing pretty good today. The one thing about being a writer that works really good for me is the part about being alone. I don’t really do well in social settings right now so being alone to write books is who I am currently. Enough of that, I need to get the creative writing juices started today and hope everyone has a great day. Keep thinking positive. 🙂

Today was a good day for me and my husband because we are now moving forward with the renovations to the house we are going to move into. Thursday we will be going and laying new floors in the kitchen and bathroom, insulating pipes under the house, and the new wiring is going in as well. We still have a way to go but we are hopeful that we will be moving in the first week of January. It has been somewhat fun in this two room tent but it is almost time to go back indoors to the warmth of a heater. 🙂

All of our bills have been caught up and current and I feel no stress today, but still a little sick. I have been drinking orange juice and sprite plus plenty of pepto to stop up the back end and calm down my stomach. I will be setting up doctor appointments tomorrow and our car is getting an overhaul thanks to my mechanic husband. I am sitting here at my faithful computer and I already have a two-week list of titles for short stories, I just have to sit and write them. Plenty of ideas in my head and a writing pad next to me to jot down any more ideas that pop into my mind. Thank you to everyone who responded or responds to my community questions they are very helpful. I am happy, focused, and ready to move forward with getting my first nonfiction book published this January. It is in its final editing and rewrite, and I have a cover designer who is working on a book cover for me and I do want to say thank you to everyone who has not given up on me because that makes me a better person also. I wish everyone a great night and I will write more tomorrow. Good night.

It is beautiful outside. The sun is shining and there is a bit of a chill in the air but it is a gorgeous fall morning. My husband woke me up with a cigarette and a honey bun. “Thank you, Honey”. 🙂 I have had my shower and working on a cup of coffee and feel really good today. Ready to take on the world of writing. I am almost done with the first round of editing my first book in a series and I have hired a cover designer and getting things rolling. My goal is to publish my children’s book and my first nonfiction book in January. Things are looking up today and I hope everyone else is having a great morning so far. My husband and dogs are asleep on the bed so it is quiet enough for me to write. I have found some places for writers where the rent and utilities are paid for and most give you two weeks to get inspired, love the scenery, and WRITE. I will keep those listings on the back-burner in case I need some time off from family or get stumped with writing. Well, time to go start my day and thank you to everyone who has read and liked my short stories, please leave comments so that I may improve my writing. Have a blessed day everyone!!

Well, let’s see I didn’t go to bed until 3AM and was back up at 5:30 and sat up until 6AM before going back to bed. I am a little anxious about our new house and out of this tent. I have finally caught all our bills up and ready to live life through my writing. My first book is off to be proofread and I’m still pushing on. I hope to be able to publish a couple of books in February. Everything is looking up and better. I have fallen for a minute but like each time I will rise again even better than before. Well, to all my followers and friends have a great day!!

Well I woke up late today and I am rushing to get back on my schedule. I guess I slept wrong on my hip because it is hurting but I need to keep writing. I have to stay focused on the light at the end of the tunnel which is publication of my first book. I have finished the first draft and I am working on editing it for the first time and have sent it to a friend for proofreading. It is a nonfiction book about some of the struggles I have had in my life and hope that it answers questions one might have or help someone out who is dealing with the same issues. Anyway I need to get back to writing and I wish everyone a great day and happy writing.    🙂
