Quick Pop In!

It’s Sunday night, and I’m busy writing. Some days it’s like pulling teeth, others it’s a breeze. Today, it’s been great. ❤️

As of this moment, I’ve written 1,584 words. About 4 hours worth of writing. That’s roughly about 6 or 7 pages, in case pages is a better breakdown for you than words.

It’s flowing though, and I don’t want to mess that up, so I’m going to bounce back over to the manuscript. As I ended one chapter and began another I realized I hadn’t written a blog post today. I committed to one a day, & usually write them a day ahead, so this is your one!

Yes, it’s a little skimpy, but don’t worry, you’ll read enough from me this year that I’ll more than make up for it. 😘

Have a great Monday, and I’ll check in with you tomorrow!

I Have A Plan….

I did a horrible, awful, absolutely ridiculous thing…

I committed to a blog post a day in 2020. (Yes, I know… I know. You don’t have to say it.)

And then, to make matters worse, I announced it here on my blog like a lunatic. That’s right. I told everyone I’d do it. Now I’m obligated, you see? 

Never fear, I have a plan though! (I thought it over while I was trying on jeans at Tjmaxx earlier. I’m nothing if not a multitasker…)

So here goes…

Some days, I will have all the time in the world, and I’ll write one up and post it on those days. 

Other days, I’ll have less time, or I’ll be busy, so I’ll have some pre-written things waiting in the wings and they’ll be posted then. 

At this time, I have no pre-written things, except novels… which I’m not posting those here in their entirety, obviously, so I’ll have to get a few posts written. But that should be fun. I’ll do it when I’m in a writing mood, and they’ll be waiting on me when I need them. 

Problem solved! You’ll get a post a day, only they won’t always be written on that day. You just won’t know it. Which honestly, is a genius idea and makes this goal a lot more achievable. People probably do this all the time. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before now. 

And I’m realizing, at this moment, as I’m writing this post…. That I wrote and published the post where I announced this whole scheme, this morning, around 1 am. So now, while I’m writing this at four in the afternoon on December 31st, I’m going to have to wait and post it tomorrow, on January 1st… seeing as I already have a post for the 31st, and I don’t want to waste this one on the same day.

Figures. But that’s okay. I’ll finally get to use that nifty publish later option I’ve never bothered with before. 

Anyway, this is my plan. I’m going to do my best to stick to it. Let’s hope I come out on top. We’ll see. Fingers crossed. 

Heather.
