Yesterday, the first day of a shiny new year, I sat down on the red couch you’ve all heard so much about and continued reading a book I had picked up earlier in the day.
The Peeshwank walked in and exclaimed, “What are you doing?”
“But you read in the yellow chair. You’re like Sheldon. That’s your spot!”
“New year, new spot. Maybe I’m turning over a new leaf.”
“But… that’s your spot.” He points over at the empty yellow chair. “This is where I nap. Where am I supposed to nap if you’re reading in my spot?”
“Now who’s acting like Sheldon?”
I know I’ve been absent for a bit on ye olde website, but I promise to get back to making daily writing a priority. The Peeshwank’s career and my volunteering at the theater started to take over our lives, so I’m working to take back some time to work on MY passion. Yes, I’m learning to say “No, I don’t have time for that” in order to continue following my own dreams. It hit me on New Year’s Eve that for the first year since 2009 I hadn’t released a new book. I vow to never let that happen again. As long as I am mentally and physically able to write, I will write. No excuses.
And so, loyal readers, “The Last Girl” WILL be released this year come hell or high water. If not, grab your torches and pitchforks and meet me in the front yard.
I’ve also got some other fun works that I started during NaNoWriMo that I can’t wait to finish and share with you. Plus the YA series that Joe and I are writing together. So many manuscripts!!! I love looking through my computer and seeing all the work that I’ve been able to do thus far. I’ve still got a long way to go, but I’m up for the challenge.
Best wishes to you all! Cheers!
