I really wanted to do a small recap of January so far, as we are in the middle of the month.
This month is shaping up to be a major month of changes for me. This is month I step outside of my solitary shell as a writer and slowly transform into a more determined and more professional writer.
So far I wrote 18 pages to my story, well I wrote 20 but deleted 4 then added 2 new ones, lol, too much math?
I get very much inspired by own determination, as I see myself stepping out and overcoming my greatest fear in regards to this business of being an author someday. I am sure you guessed it by now it is my picture. The moment I shared it, everything opened, No more fear! Well that’s not true, lol, I still have fears, but not on the subject where people know who I am. Now that I am “out there” more, much more than before, it has become easier for me to write.
I am looking for a better space for me to write, that will be only for that, nothing more. That way, whenever I see that place I’ll know it’s just for writing, like a trigger. I know many authors I love have that and I think it will aid me as well and push me even more in my writing.
My plan for the next two weeks is to push myself a bit more and write about 50 more pages. It can be a lot with all I need to do, but I really want to do this, so sacrifices will have to be made.
- My plan for the next few months is to combine my writing with my editing. It means that I want to edit one of the books I wrote already called The Adventures Of Biloby The Wizard. I just need to see how to do them both 😀
My Author Platform and social media
For me this is the hard part, I wish I had the budget to hire someone to do that for me, lol, but I can’t.
I am learning and researching a lot. Tons of notes have already started to pile up in my social media folder, that I really need to sort, lol. I am looking not only on how they (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest…) work, but also on how I can use them for my needs and what else I need as a writer and as a future author (hopefully).
This research even helps me to be more social with my wonderful readers and get to know them better ❤
No major change here, I am still posting at the same rate, but in the coming weeks I am planning to post more 🙂
I want to try harder to stay in-touch with my readers.
Sugar and processed food free January
In this I am doing very well 😀
It’s hard but I am very determined to stick with it. It’s harder than I thought as a lot of foods contains sugar (much more than I thought). It makes my life a bit, well lets be honest a lot, harder! Everything has sugar in it, lol, even smoked salmon that I looove, I wanted to buy some today but the second ingredient in it was sugar… why? Oh well.
Sadly, none. I don’t know how to fit it in with everything else, but I am thinking about it.
At the start of the January I finished 2 books, but since then I haven’t read at all.
That is all for my update, hope you are having a great weekend and you are all resting well.
Thank you so much for reading ❤
