It is a wonderful few days when you've accomplished goals you set for yourself. I'm doing the edits for the nonfiction book Melissa Cook and I are writing, and I'm editing the second fiction book I wrote. I've lost the weight I wanted to lose and toned up. With that came more attention to the clothes I wear. My dress reflects my identity again. I like dressing just a bit differently, putting things together in ways that aren't standard. And I adore vintage looks.
I've gotten fit and lowered my cholesteral. Celebration time!
Now it's time for new priorities. What do I want to do? Write another book? I do and will, but this time it will be without the obessiveness I had for the first three. I know I can do it and now I've an idea of how to do it better than I did before I wrote the first one. I'm not spending whole days writing. That takes the fun out of it. And I'd gain back the weight I've lost.
I want to add yoga into my fitness routine. That's one priority. Another is to enjoy an abundance of time. I always feel so rushed, so many things I want to do. And that perception changes my day. There is a difference to just viewing the day as an abundance of time--it's calmer and what you are doing is more fully experienced.
I want to find a writer's group, a critique group that I can attend in person. And make sending out queries more of priority. I love to write but I don't try to sell it. That doesn't work at all.
That's enough for now.
