December is upon us. December is traditionally used as a time of reflection and planning.
People reflect on the past year. What did they do? What they didn’t do?
Me? I sold my house, moved across the province to a warmer climate. I have made progress on my blog. I have made a URL, a professional email account and started my brand. All important things for an indie-author to do.
I have also been active writing, but nothing has been published at the moment. I haven’t gotten as much stuff written yet, but that is not for a lack of trying. I just had too much on my plate. I am done writing books 1 to 3 of the ‘Space Courier’ novel, as well as the first ‘Evana’ book. Information about those is on my current projects page.
While not important in the short term, I have also made and ordered business cards. It is hard when you talk to people and forget what your email address is.
Yes, she is my wife, but she is very good at what she does.
I also have a schedule of work. I have projects planned to drop all year. I am not going to release that schedule as it may change.
Have I failed at things this year? Yes. But I feel that the important thing to do is to reflect on what you have accomplished. Ignore the failures, and look at the positive. I could feel down that another Christmas has gone by and I am still unpublished. I could moan that I didn’t make my unrealistic NaNo goal. But I am not.
I will be working on the positives, which are that I have five manuscripts first drafted or better. They need edits and covers. I have a sixth that needs a revision to fix plot errors. That is many work that can be published.
So this is chow. I may or may not have time to post another time before the next year. If I don’t it is cause I am busy.
I wish you all the best. Until next time.
