Thank you for visiting my blog. As I begin my literary journey as a novelist, I have decided to create a platform for my fans to get to know me better, as well as my work. I am excited to start this new adventure with you all. My goal is to post new content weekly, and as this platform grows, I’ll look at adding different content. But for now, we’ll start small.
I hope the month of November is treating you well. We are now 10 days into NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and I am over 16,000 words into the complete overhaul of Heart Work. It’s stressful, exciting, and time consuming because you are committing yourself to 1,667 words per day. Some days it’s easier than others to write and hit that goal.
A few weeks ago, my son and I were having a Mom and Me day when our Mini Cooper started having troubles. Long story short, it was the ignition coils. I ordered the parts, had to wait for them to come in, and then my son and I installed them. I started the car and everything has been working well.
It has been a hot minute since I last posted. During my brief hiatus I have made progress in all areas of my life, but mostly I have focused on my son and my nonprofit. There was a grant we were applying for that was due a few days. I finished it and submitted the grant on time and am hopeful we’ll see our project funded.
It has been 10 days since I last posted and I have been stressing out about it. It has been making me crazy knowing I need to post an update, but being so slammed with projects and life that time just slipped away. However, I am carving out time today to post and update everyone on what’s going on.
I hope everyone has had a good week going into the weekend. I’ve been making all sorts of progress in my life including my writing life. Yes, I know, it’s hard to believe, but I am finally working on Heart Work!
I’m excited about finishing my summer classes. I learned so much in my publishing class and my narrative journalism class, but I’m so excited to have the next six weeks off to recharge and focus on a few of my projects.
Heart Work is my first and foremost top priority project. I have also launched my social media platforms on Facebook and Instagram, but I have only posted on Facebook at the moment. I am working on a social media schedule for both myself and my nonprofit, Midnight Waters. I will also be adding Parler and Rumble to my list of social media platforms, but I have not had a moment to set them up.
My summer classes end next week, and I have been finishing every assignment I can ahead of the last day of classes – next Friday. My hope is to complete all the assignments, and then only have to respond to the discussions. This would free up more of my time to focus on Heart Work.
