It's that time of year, where we set goals and try to plan ahead for the next year. I am asking myself what went well and what didn't and what can I do better next year? It's something I always look at seriously at this time of year.
Writing regularly hasn't been my strong point. It seems I am good at one thing at a time. Good at being a mom, or good at real estate, or good at my dayjob, but not all of them at one time. *laughs
I want to put most of my focus back on writing. It's something I enjoy doing, and it helps me to escape my world, but more than that I really appreciate the readers I've gotten over the years. I know what it's like to spend hours in the waiting room while someone you love is having a procedure done and doing everything you can to distract yourself. I use books. Other people may have other methods, but I need the stories to help me feel better about my own life and it's why I love it when characters come to me and demand to be written.
So this year I am going to try to be better at writing this stuff down. Writing regularly means setting aside time for me and asking for respect from family members about this time. 2 hours isn't a lot but it's enough to accomplish a lot IF I actually write. That's enough time to get a small scene done.
