Christmas is almost here, as is a new year. I already started thinking about changes I wanted to make for the new year. I’m not a fan of resolutions, I simply try my best to do good for myself and others. With the thoughts of the new year come thoughts on changes, like the changes I made to my website this past week and the changes to this blog that once had a few posts and now has this…
In place of traditional blog posts, stories of my life, tips on writing and creating things, I am simply going to use this blog to keep my readers updated on what I am working on. I won’t post on a set schedule, and each post will be titled with the date I posted it, just like this one. On with the updates…
I really hope you’re taking the time to check out my articles through vocal.media. I’ve read both good and bad things about this outlet, but I really enjoy it. As a well-educated and experienced writer, I like having a place where I can still be free to write about what I want and have a chance to get a larger audience than a personal blog would. For a while, I was mostly doing music reviews on their Beat site, but now I am focusing more on other subjects, as you’ll see if you go visit my profile there. I write about writing, wellness, staying organized and happy, and more.
It’s been a little bit since I published my last book, Reconnecting With Yourself, and I have a few works-in-progress saved on my computer with more joining them far too often. I have no intentions of publishing anything else this year, but for 2018 you can expect the following from me (at least):
- A book of Haiku about life, from childhood till now and about nature, as well. The working title is My Life In Haiku.
- I am hoping to also complete my poetry book about the state I live in. The working title for this one is The Nature of Michigan.
- Poetry is only one of my passions. I love helping people and I have a few books in the works that fit under wellness or self-help, which I’d LOVE to get out sometime in 2018. They are The Jealousy Remedy, Clean Up Your Life, and You’re Not A Victim (And Neither Am I).
I also have some fictional books I am working on, but I don’t have high hopes for getting them out in 2018 (a romance, a horror, and a collection of scary short stories). I also have a new project I will be working on throughout 2018 and then publishing late January or early February of 2019. I also really want to get another children’s picture book underway (I really miss my Frankie the firefly). It’s a good thing I LOVE writing!
On top of all of that, I have a 10,000-word dissertation I am writing in order to earn my D.D. in Spiritual Counseling. Once that is done and graded I will be turning it into a book. It’s about positive thinking, of course!
That’s where I am at right now. Aside from writing, my mind is mostly on Christmas and New Year’s Eve right now. In fact, you probably won’t hear from me again until 2018. Have a blessed Yuletide and a Happy New Year!
