As 2016 came to an end, I did some soul-searching about what I wanted the coming year to be for me as a wife, mother, and grandmother. I'm so blessed to have a loving family, who are supportive of my crazy quirks, as well as the time I devote to my writing and everything it entails. However, I need to remember not to get so wrapped up in my writing, that I forget to live. So, as far as a new year resolution, that is one I plan to work on. While I love my writing, it's easy to get lost in that world. I do believe that I need to budget my time better and actually live my life more, not hidden behind a keyboard.
Now, as far as to my writing career in 2017, I plan to finish the huge editing project I've been working on for most of 2016. When I took on this project I had no idea how much of my time it would take. It's the debut publication for an author, so it had some issues. Writing a trilogy for a debut project was quite daring, but I must say, it's a great story and I believe it will be a success with the reading public. If you are a fan of Military Thrillers, I'm sure you'll enjoy this offering from first-time Author G.N. Kenyon on Amazon.
I also have some great books of my own to finish writing. I often speak of "the voices", so I'm going to blame them for my partially written books. Nothing is worse than to be plugging along on a great story and suddenly "the voices" go completely quiet. Or, be working on one story and the characters from another decided they want some attention. If I were to say this to a mental health person, they would probably want to send me to a padded room with a fancy new jacket that ties in the back. LOL
I'm not sure which of these stories I will work on first, but either way, I'm sure you'll enjoy the finished product. Hopefully, no other "voices" will pull me in a completely different direction, but who knows? Sometimes, it's just best to surrender to their desires and let the story write itself.
