First Blog of the New Year

Happy 2015! Wow, I can't believe how fast the time flies. My parents were right, the older you get, the faster it goes. 

Big plans for this new year - 2 book launches, one in each series, conferences, classes, and working toward finding my fans out there. In fact, I'm hoping to have a cover reveal for Lore next month!

This blog will now turn into a creative writing blog only, and my website will be for fun questions, announcements, and the like. It is hard for me to organize everything and still find time to write so, believe it or not, I'm glad it's winter time. I'm forced inside and with no excuse.

I've already seen several writer friends announce on Facebook how they're sitting down and writing, which is great news. Sometimes it's tough arranging your life to accommodate your writing. But it is well worth it, even if you don't publish.

As for me I have been hitting the computer. I'm trying to catch up from this last year. I have, however, managed to get to chapter 28 (8 pages in) and I believe the book will be around 40 chapters, so lots still to go. 

I've been reading the book from start to finish to make sure it sounds good. I'm up to chapter 5. With the way my eyes start squinting, reading on the computer takes its toll. I do believe I have solved why my eyes do that. I think it's caused by arthritis, at least that is what one of the medical sites said could be the culprit.

Anyway, I'll find out in two weeks when I have my first appointment with a rheumatoid Doc. In the mean time, I'm doing the best I can and plan to get the book out in the next few months.

I hope this new year brings lots of wonderful things your way. We all work hard and deserve to get some rewards for our effort. I think all of you are fantastic and I appreciate your support of me and my books. You've been great to follow me on my writing journey and I want to get to know all of you better. 

I will be posting a new question on Blog Talk today and maybe you'll take a minute to answer. It sure would be awesome to discuss Fable with all of you.

In the mean time, have a wonderful rest of your holiday vacation this weekend. See you back here next Friday. We'll be talking about writing skills.

Love, Lisa

  1. Happy New Year, Lisa. Another year, and another chapter in our lives. Your parents are so right on. As we get older, Christmas seems to come about every two weeks. Well, what can be expected at our age. You are an encourager, Lisa. I expect to finish my projects within four months. The best to you this year. Blessings.
