Welcome to 2020, friends!
So much has changed in my life, some, writerly changes, and some others, and this seems to be the perfect time to both reflect, and share some dreams and goals.
Change #1: I am now the mom of a 3rd-year-college-student! My 3rd-year-college-student is currently on a dream of a co-op with an amazing company, and living away from home. That has been a huge adjustment for our family, but I am gratified by how well things are going with it. It’s beautiful to watch him reaching his dreams.
Change #2: I am also now the mom of a brand-new-teenager! My brand-new-teenager dreams of a life with the theater arts. She enjoys working in the dramatic arts, with theatrical makeup and costumes, and reading magical realism. This has not been any kind of adjustment for our family, as she has always enjoyed these things, but as we are now embarking into the teenage years, I am also gratified at how well things are going with it. With every rehearsal, she is working towards her goals and dreams, and I couldn’t be more proud.
Change #3: I am a Literary Agent with Golden Wheat Literary Agency. Setting that goal, completing the training, and working with clients has been a dream and a passion for me for some time. As an agent with Golden Wheat Literary Agency, I work with some truly wonderful clients, and I can’t wait to share their work with the world.
One of my favorite parts of the writing process is the editing. I have blogged about that before, and my feelings on that topic still ring true today. As an author, I strive to polish and shine my manuscripts, and working my manuscripts until they are ready for submission. I have a couple of manuscripts that have been placed aside for a bit. A goal for myself this year is to finally (FINALLY!) complete one book of of my Harbor Bells Trilogy. More about that in a future post!
That’s about it. I’ll be working this year on goals and dreams with my family, my clients, and myself. What goals and dreams do you have for 2020? Share them below! I’d love to connect!
