Let me be clear, nothing or no one prevented me from writing but me. Internalizing so much of who I am has caused greater damage than any another person could inflict. This is why I am taking back my life, freeing myself and inviting others to join in the self-development and healing that writing can bring.
During 2012, I have work to do. Goals to reach:
Finish 1st novel (13,100 out of 36,000 words)
Submit poetry and flash fiction entries once a month
Blog once a week
Continue to build my platform and brand
I could go on, but I've learned over the years, there is a need to limit goals to what can be managed alongside life. Otherwise, I quit at the first setback because it feels like there's too much to catch up on. WHEN I achieve these goals, I will set new ones. So join me on this journey, learn with me, cheer me on, correct my mistakes, ignore my rants. Just don't expect me to stop and go away, because I won't.
