There are things I know I have to finish and get done, but then I tend to put them off to the last moment? I just started thinking about these things this week, because of the Health Challenge, I’ve been doing.
The Health Challenge this week was making sure I drink enough water each day. Each day I’ve gotten up earlier and I’ve also felt more energetic and all because I’ve been watching my calorie intake (food journal), drinking more water, and eating greener foods, less sugars and starches, and last, but not least I’ve done some form of exercise everyday for at least 30-45 minutes along with some strength training to build muscle. It’s also helped because I have an accountability partner and others that encourage me along the way. Becoming healthy isn’t achieved through dieting… it’s a lifestyle change. Have you set goals to accomplish today? This week? This month? Start now! Continue reading “Why you should set goals…”
When I think of Halloween, I remember crisp evenings going door to door with my parents, siblings, and friends. We had jacko-lantern candy baskets and said “Trick or treat!” in our cute little outfits that varied. Some looked like they were straight out of a fairytale, movie, or story. It was a lovely time to just spend with family and friends. Also remember watching Halloween Town with my siblings. That was such an awesome movie!
But, since it is HALLOWEEN TODAY… what’s that mean for WRITERS?
What normal person writes 50,000 words in ONE month?
YES… WAY OVERRATED. I don’t like the word normal.
I am going to write a book this November. I can’t tell you too much about it at the moment, because it’s my secret project! But I really can’t wait to share more with you about it!
The #WritingHarvest Twitter Chat is back on this month! Aren’t you excited? I know I am. I have some exciting projects and things coming up for the #WritingHarvest Peeps. Be sure to read all the way to the bottom and make sure to click on the link and fill in the questions.
I’ve found over time, that I write my best stuff when I write it out longhand on paper and then import it into the computer. Some people are also the same way, while others are completely the opposite.
My point with this step is make sure you write everything down. It doesn’t have to be perfect at the beginning.
YES! I finally did! The Mason of Hearts edit is DONE!
I am so excited that this edit of The Mason of Hearts, is DONE! It’s been a long journey with this book baby. And I feel that it isn’t even close to the end of the editing tunnel. But, I see the light!
The total count comes down to:
• 81 Chapters
• 91,147 words
• 626 Pages
I am so excited! Just had to let you all know. Keep an eye out for an exciting post this week with some fun pictures and maybe even a contest!
I am really enjoying the journey of writing/revising this book. I can’t wait to get it in front of people who want to read it. Now, my next step is sending it out to beta readers. I am nervous! Excited though!
The past few months have been so busy! So sorry its been awhile since I last posted. Man, have I missed it on here.
I haven’t been able to be on here much the past few months because I was traveling and had an editing deadline for “The Mason of Hearts” and YAY for that… because, I finished it! I sent it to my critique partner. At the moment, I am up to my ears in my critique partner’s edits. I am totally enjoying her story.
• Johan came to visit. It was glorious.
• Thanksgiving. Johan’s first Full Out American Thanksgiving. We had a full house as my grandma and cousin came up and my brother and sister both came home too.
