Did Somebody Say “Update?”

True confession: Around September 20, I finished the first draft of Book 1 in my humor series. Actually typed “THE END” and everything. In so doing, I beat my stated goal by more than two months.

Did I report to you as promised?

No, I did not.

Sorry about that. Lots of life got in the way, as it does for everyone, though few allow themselves to get as badly sidetracked as Yours Truly.

The new year arrived, and I took steps to make a fresh start. Set some office hours. Streamlined my outside schedule. Even cleared off my desk! No, really, I did. See?

Take my word for it... this is a serious improvement.

Take my word for it… this is a serious improvement.

I also started writing this post… back on January 2. The more astute among you will note that the 2nd was, like, three weeks ago. What have I been doing in the meantime? Well, in a nutshell I’d say I’ve been digging out from under a rapid-fire series of major upheavals. I’ll explain more next time.

Meanwhile… I have writing goals, among others, for this year. I won’t bore you with them, but one goal is to stay in touch with you here. I appreciate the time you give my posts, and hope I brighten your day or give you a little encouragement in return.

Happy Nearly-New Year!

Thanks for reading,
Jan

    Oh.my.gosh. An update from Jan. It is STILL a New Year, and I look forward to what God has on the horizon. I also set a ‘write once a week at the library no matter what’ goal this year. I’m sticking to it.
    Congratulations on The End of the first book!

    • Jody, it’s good to be back after all this time. I’m glad I could remember my blog password! I like your idea of a “consistency” goal rather than a “volume-of-work” goal. There are times when that’s more practical. Much love!
