Well, at least I am consistent in my inconsistency. So, there’s that. I’m also consistent in beating myself up for being inconsistent. I keep SAYING that this is the year, this is the book…. and then – zip.
I will say that for 2021, I have published another book of poetry: Poetic Reactions, based upon my theory that I could write poems inspired by two words. While I might not be making a ton of money, the cover has garnered a lot of compliments, and I’ve been blessed by more than my fair share of people so good will come of my writing career. With the publication of this book, I hit two all-time records: I had two shows (back to back) where I sold 19 books. That’s 38 books sold over 4 days. Made for some good morale boosting.
But, I failed in keeping up with the blog – twice it seems this year. Emotions running high and being twisting in all sorts of shapes and angles really messes with thoughts and words seem to disappear. I’m working through all that though in the hopes of getting better about things.
My plan for 2022 is to get the 40K book out that I have been editing for two months. To be more consistent with this blog. To be more present with an audience (any audience, really). Not be so scared of my shadow and start treating facebook like it is a frat party the first week of school. I don’t know anyone, but I’d like to get to know everyone and learn the lay of the land.
Here’s hoping I hit at least one of these goals!
