I feel as zesty as a lemon as the New Year comes into existence.
After a Christmas with my family and friends, and a New Year in Boston America, I feel not much revived as I have been ill for the most part with a varying amount of ailments, but still I smile (though not in a boastful way). I am on the mend and as I come back and place my laptop on my…lap once again and feel my trusty machine’s keys under my sensitive fingertips I am excited.
I took a break from writing of the holidays because of my illness and because I thought it would be a good thing to have a break. It can be quite a good idea FYI for writers to take a break and not allow oneself to write even if one wants to. This way I find you get ideas and you get stoked about what you will write when once again you can, it allows the creative juices not just to flow, but to simmer for a while beneath the surface before you pick the best ideas out to write. (That is the writing tip in this blog by the way if you didn’t catch that…)
Anyway, I am planning this year, sort of in a resolutiony way, to:
1. Spend more time with God and reading the bible but most of all praying.
2. To write more, to write funny and to write heart breakingly wonderful things (well that’s the plan).
3. To not stress about things (Still training myself to understand that not everything needs doing all the time and I can actually sit down and not thing ‘must do this, must do that’)
Aside from these things I wish to achieve I would just love to wish y’all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
And to say thanks for the read, it really is much appreciated.
p.s. My new character is called Miss. Rotherham and is about to enter into a plot that involves making her old love jealous – more to follow including high speed horse chases…mmmm….interesting.
p.p.s. And a little thought about characters and love from Jane Austen herself –
‘How little of permanent happiness could belong to a couple who were only brought together because their passions were stronger than their virtue.’
