The year so far...

I can't believe we're already halfway through this month. Yikes! 
January is not just the start of a new year, but it's also when my daughter has summer holidays. That means that she's got school holidays during half of December and most of January. She doesn't go back until the 29th. And for that reason, I don't usually make too many writing goals.
I take each week as it comes, and while I do try to get some things done, I mostly just go with the flow. Sometimes I get these things done, other times I don't. And that's okay.
2015 started with edits. Last week I completed the second round of edits for DASH, and will probably get the FLE very soon. If everything goes according to plan, I should be done with the whole process by the end of the month. Fingers crossed. And then I can look forward to my Robot Love Story being available in May. :)
After completing that, I wanted to take a breather this week. I've been reading a little, trying to visualise my Goals Plan a lot, and sorting through my books, notebooks, stationery, and toys. Only problem with splitting the day with all these things is that I only manage to get a little of each thing done by the end of the day. Which is fine with me. The best way to tackle tasks is by taking small steps to reach the finish line. :)
Besides, my daughter enjoys the sorting through stuff too.
I've also been blogging a lot more than I used to, which I'm very happy about.
Back to the writing plan, because I do have a plan. If I get stuck into Lavie's final draft in February--and then tackle Willow's right after it--I might be able to meet my Finish two books and two novellas by July goal. This means I need to stick to a strict plan during the first half of 2015, which includes the two-weeks school holidays in April. 

I'm getting tired just thinking about it. ;)
Phew. But seriously, if I can stick to this plan that means I can spend the last half of 2015 working on other projects. I have SO MANY new ideas that I want to explore and brainstorm...
The other thing I want to focus on is getting back into a nice workout routine. We've been doing pretty well so far and have even added this to the mix:
This workout is seriously good, and hard. Very hard. We're up to Day 11, and all I can say is Thank God for the rest days and the fact we're so close to the end. It's definitely a great challenge. We've decided to tackle it several times during the rest of the year. But with plenty of space in between because, my poor legs. :/
The other day I received the rights for my short story Better Off Alone. I've removed it from my books section and updated the details on Goodreads. This is the second book that's been released from Damnation Books. The first was Faithless, and there will be more during this year and the next. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them as they come in, but I'm definitely not going to rush into anything. Maybe I'll republish them, maybe I won't. Not sure yet. But it's definitely something to think about...
Just not now. Some other time.
Well, that's it for now.
See ya!
