I stayed up into 2020, working on my current book, not even knowing it was midnight until I heard the fireworks going off outside my window. But here we are, a new decade. And I’m so excited to see what this year, and decade, brings.
But as for 2019, well:
I published three books.
Wrote eight books, 560,422 words, give or take. (Definitely more give lol)
Got much better at making edits.
Designed all the covers for my books in the foreseeable future.
And when I consider the fact that I somehow got all this done with a husband and five kids and everything else going on in my life, I definitely pat myself on the back. Because some months I wrote less words than others and I’d start to feel like I’m wasn’t doing enough, wasn’t working hard enough. I felt bad when I took a day off, when I read books and told myself if I have time for that, then I had time to work on my own. Gonna try and do better with that this year. Letting myself feel okay about taking the time away from writing when I need to. But in other ways, writing is my therapy. Writing is what makes my day, makes me happy and relaxed, so it’s a slippery, weird slope.
Anywho, in 2020 I plan to release 4 books, 3 contemporary romances and a fantasy romance, if all goes according to plan. Still working on book #15, about half way through, and just got done editing book #6 last night.
And bonus for last night, to leave 2019 on a super high note, Be My Light made it onto a reader I absolutely love’s fav reads list. So seeing that really just made my night, and really I’m still flying high off that today.
Hope everyone has a wonderful year and goes for what makes them happy.
Write soon. Bye.
