My entry for The Dear Me Contest 2015.
|Dear Me 2015:
I know you feel down because you didn't accomplish what you wanted to do last year. Let's make this the year that you do these things. Stop whining, find the time and do these things.
Your vampire novel. Edit it already. Make it happen this year. Find a publisher. It isn't the next "Twilight" but has that stopped other authors? You have read other authors who have written paranormal romances and they were good. Now, it is your time. Sink your teeth or fangs into it and do this. It is time to publish another novel. No excuses. Just do it.
Scrapbooking. You need to scrapbook your vacation pictures from Frankenmuth, Michigan that you took of the Christmas Store. All those beautiful displays of Santa Claus, penguins, a large stuffed tiger, bears, elves, reindeer, the Christmas Tree Display, Victorian Christmas Carolers, Christmas angels, nativity scenes, snowmen and everything to do with Christmas. Get this scrapbook done and enter it in the Fair in July and try to get another Grand Championship Ribbon. You have a Grand Championship Ribbon, Champion Ribbon and Reserve Champion Ribbon. Take a vacation from work and get this done. No excuses. You need to do more scrapbooking to over come the winter blues.
Your mental health job. Passing Meds. can be a drag and you get burned out. They have hired more help and things are looking better. You can retire in two or three years. If the family farm gets sold, you could probably retire sooner. You work to buy nice things and be thankful you can do that. You have been at your job 29 years and retirement is close by. Most of the patients who live there love you and so does the staff you work with. Be thankful for them.
This year at WDC, I hope to get more members for my Jane Austen Group, make more friends, do more reviews, join more groups and keep writing short stories and keep up with my two Blogs here. These are some good goals and you love this site. If it wasn't for this site, you would have never taken writing seriously.
Last but not least. Read more books and this will help you with your writing as well as help you enter another world in your imagination. This is where writing ideas are born.
Have a great 2015 and let's do this. Be determined and find the time. Life is going to be great this year!
