Wow! It’s been a hot minute since I updated my blog.
I have a confession to make — I suck at keeping up with blogs. Over ten years of Livejournals, Xanga, Blogspots and now WordPress all given up and rotting somewhere out there in cyberspace– I suck. But you probably have already figured that out.
So what have I been up to?
I finished up 2015 by completing two manuscripts for an upcoming New Adult Sports Fiction series that hopefully will be published early this year. I’m really excited about the new series and can’t wait to share more information about it with you!
I am also planning to re-release a manuscript that I had once self-published (more about that later).
I am beginning 2016 by focusing on a goal that I’ve had for years – script writing.
Yes, I am currently penning my first screenplay and let me just say that it is a challenge! A fun challenge, but a challenge nonetheless. Either way, writing it makes me happy and for that I am thankful.
That brings me to something I want to do better/focus on in 2016– Gratitude.
Say it with me : Gra-ti-tude.
Though I am not one to squander blessings, nor am I one to overlook and expect things given to me, I feel as if sometimes I look to the future so much that I don’t take time to just say “THANKS” for the things I do have/things I’ve done as much as I should and could.
I am an overachiever, plain and simple, and because of that I am always striving for the next goal, dream, and plan. Yet, once I achieve these things, do I just sit still and feel the sense of gratitude I should? Sure, I am thankful and I say my prayers of thanks but am I really as appreciative as I can be?
I’m not sure.
So, in 2016 I want to focus on just saying thank you as much as I can. I want to focus on saying my prayers of thanks and though I will continue to strive for my goals, I want to take my time and appreciate those I have already reached as well as blessings I am given.
With that being said, thank you all for always believing in me and supporting me ❤ May 2016 be your best one yet!
