I’m a goal setter. When I don’t have a goal in mind, I become disorientated. Unfortunately, some goals take longer than others. That’s not a free tick to quit. It means goals need to be readjusted.
I planned to publish the third novel in People of Akiane Trilogy, Jessica’s Mission, in June 2016. But I was also battling a long time illness, which waylaid my writing. Healing took longer than I expected, so did the book.
Giving up was not an option. I kept resetting the goals. Each time I got closer to accomplishing my goals.
2019’s goal was to finish the novel and be healed.
I am well on my way to being healthy. You can read about it Health Update.
Most importantly, I finished my 3rd novel on Christmas morning 2019. Yeah!
It’s not ready for publication just yet, but the story is finished and will be handed over to my editor January 2, 2020. She’ll give it back to me with suggestions for improving the story.
Once finished, the final proofing begins.
2020’s goals are to publish Jessica’s Mission and to be completely healed.
I have only one goal for January 2020: I am not allowed to work or looked at my manuscript!
For this month, I’m going to read at least one novel that is not mine.
I started Carol Berg’s The Spirit Lens years ago, but have not had the energy to finish it. I plan to finish it this month. I’ve already read three chapters. I’m almost a third of the way through. Ha.
I picked the above picture because I’ve spent a good amount of time at home recovering from Adrenal Fatigue and when I had the energy, I was sitting at my computer writing. When I didn’t have the energy I was stuck on my couch watching TV or sleeping.
In 2020, I’m venturing out and away from home. I have plans to publish Jessica’s Mission and I will be venturing into my next project The Destiny Series.
