New Priorities

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.
