We made it! We made it! We’re out of 2020 and into 2021. Yes, we’re still in the middle of pandemic, and no, the government hasn’t changed over to sanity yet–the latter will happen this month. But we’re in a new year and here’s hoping 2021 is the Comforting Grandma 2021 of a year after the Big Crazed Bully 2020 slammed us right and left.
So this year, I’m making several changes. First, I’ve reopened my Patreon. I’ll be posting some of my unpublished books there for my highest tier patrons. As to whether they’ll ever see print, that’s questionable. These are books I wrote before I ever got my first book contract, unedited, so you can see how my writing has progressed.
Second, I have an ambitious line up of books that I want to release this year. I’ll be releasing a couple Wild Hunt books, several Moonshadow Bay books, and at least one rebooted Chintz ‘n China book (but it will NOT be a cozy–I’m moving them more into paranormal women’s fiction/mystery so expect more romance, more paranormal).
As for my health, this is my “Year of No Sugar”…I’ve done it before and I want to do it again–no sugar. And I will also be cutting down on starches again. I’ll have to do the latter carefully given the limitations of my diet due to my MCAS, but I’m tired of hurting and sugar only compounds the problems. I started several days ago, and here’s crossing my fingers. I’ll still be eating fruits, but limiting the quantity. The type of fruits I can eat are already limited due to the MCAS.
I’m also continuing to focus on my YouTube and even less on Facebook this year. Facebook has been wiping out pages and groups for authors without warning. Sometimes they get them back, sometimes not. I’m tired of playing games with the bloated whale of a site.
And lastly, I turn 60 on January 17th…wow. The big 6-0. I intend to focus on coming into my power this year and coming into my ‘prime’…because it sure doesn’t feel like I’ve done this previously!
So hello, 2021. Let’s be friends, okay?
What are your goals for the year? What are you hoping to see out of this year?

I have several plans, but two of the biggest ones are learning a new skill so I can get a new and better job. The other is actually to get my mental health back under control. 2020 has caused so much havoc on my mental health that I’m so working this year to get myself back to what I was before. Definitely not cured, but under control to a point that people aren’t worrying about me. So yeah.
I’m hoping to be more consistent with exercising ( on-line pilates). I sometimes leave it to the end of the day and then I’m too tired. I also need to stop procrastinating on learning technology that new to me like how to host a Zoom meeting.
I always forget you are also a January birthday. So Happy early Earthday❣️ I’m hoping to get back to work this year. I feel the lack of contributing to my household financially. I am working on getting healthier bc I not only had a daughter but my oldest daughter had a son. So it’s sort of crazy around here right now. I hope anyone reading this has a better year than any they’ve previously had! HERES TO THE BEST ONE YET❣️ (I Hope)
