Giveaway for December

I wanted to do something fun. It's cold and dreary outside.

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.

What are you planning to do differently this next year? Have you thought about your goals? Are you going to try to live a healthier happier life? What are you going to do differently--or the same? Comment here and you will be entered in my giveaway.

I will randomly pick a person to receive an ebook copy of  my last m/f/m Western, Cowboys Don't Sing and this simple but elegant costume jewelry bracelet in the mail. Prizes to be awarded January 1. If I am unable to reach the entrant, prizes will be awarded to another person. Over 18 only please. Giveaway ends December 31, 2013.

I plan on making time. Time for the things I've been missing out on because of various reasons. While those reasons still exist, I plan to push them to the back burner, as much as I can, and be a little freer.

I plan on making time for the things that have been unintentionally neglected while I've been in school; friends, family. Hopefully, the coming term loads won't weigh too heavily on me that I slack on it again.

It's hard keeping life balanced. I can completely understand that as much as anyone, and I hope you have a more rounded life this year. :) Thanks for sharing Shannon and I apologize for it not showing up right away. I had to moderate the comments. :) I am going to send you a bracelet since I have more than one if you will contact me with your snail mail. Merry Christmas!
