Setting Goals and Business Plans

Well I’ve done it again. I left the HRW girls speechless today when I started to rattle off my goals, career plan, business plan and career plan. Okay, maybe they weren’t speechless but they were dumbfounded, got the giggles and wondered where in the hell I plan on finding the time to reach my said goals.

So my excessive compulsive disorder has been in over drive this month. What can I say, but it is better that I have a heap of goals, then none at all.

My career plan needs some tweaking, as do my business plan and book plans but I’ll continue to work on these until I’m happy with the end result.

My goals I’m happy with what I have set out for the year. I believe once I move and get into a good routine I’ll nail them each month. Plus I have the girls to give me a boot in the butt if I don’t.

I’d actually be interested in knowing how many writers/authors do write business/career and book plans.

Until next time, happy writing.

The New Year Begins & I'm Late

What I'm Reading: ‘Paying the Forfeit’ by S.E Gilchrist and ‘Hidden Passion’ by Marianne Theresa
What I'm Watching: Big Bang Theory
What I'm Working On: Regency novel

Happy New Year everyone, yes, I’m very late offering my best wishes, but that’s me lately always running late. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I know I did, this year we had the family come and have Christmas lunch with us on the farm.

I have some non writing news to start off the year with; my husband and I are moving after being on the farm for almost 28 years we have sold it to our daughter and son-in-law. I know they will enjoy life here as much as we have, for Jim and my self it’s getting use to life in town. Thank God I have my writing.

Speaking of writing, I’ve sent the first three chapters of a regency off to an editor. Now the wait begins, of course there is always editing to be done. Plus, I have a mile of packing to finish.

Well I’m leaving it short and sweet for this post, I really just wanted to let people know I’m still floating around.
