Good morning and Happy New Year! I hope everyone is ready to eat cabbage and black-eyed peas today, along with the meat of your choice…ours is ham.
Time to get back to business and back on track, line out goals and set out to achieve them. I don’t like making New Years resolutions, but I will say that I plan to shape up physically and grow my writing career into more of a business than a practice. I need to get out of the chair and off the couch more often. Maybe I’ll save my pennies and get one of those stand up desk doohickies.
I don’t expect overnight success, but I do want to see exponential growth this year. I’m working on the editorial calendar and will be starting a few new things with the blog, like Motivational Monday, where I will share a quote or scripture in an attempt to brighten your day or motivate you some way.
Tuesdays will be a day for my personal essays, my take on Galina’s Life Clubs. I haven’t decided what to call them yet, you’ll be the first to know.
I thought I’d do some kind of food feature on Wednesday and call it What To Eat Wednesday’s where I share recipes or something having to do with my Paleo lifestyle. I may talk about essential oils as well, since they are an enhancement to some of my food and/or beverages.
I have not made a final decision for Thursdays yet, I’m still working on it 🙂
Fridays will be my attempt at Flash Fiction, so that I can get flex my creative muscles a bit. That ought to prove interesting.
Besides learning ways to monetize my writing, my goal is to write 1700 words a day, an accumulation of all the platforms I write on, in preparation for this year’s NaNoWriMo. By October, I’ll be able to crank out 50,000 words in 30 days, no problem!
I hope the new year is fun and profitable for you as well, and you reach whatever goals and milestones you desire. As usual, all comments are welcome and any suggestions will be helpful! Let me know how I can help you as well. I aim to keep my patio a fun and lighthearted place to gather as I also strive to improve the view and help someone however I can. Peace out 2016 and welcome 2017! I can’t wait to see what the new year has in store for us all.
