I don’t keep resolutions, so there is no point in starting them. That said, for 2018 I do have a little wishlist.
- HEALTH I really wish that my health would improve. The winter so far, even from September on has not been great. I have been completely and utterly wiped out. No energy, always needing to sit down, and naps. Well lets just say I love napping. I have pain in my arms, wrists, shoulders and most other joints, and from December on this has been stopping me sleep properly. Sometimes the pain comes on instantly once I touch the mouse when I sit at the laptop, sometimes its as soon as I start driving. Anyhow, whatever it is, I would just like it to go away please. I’ve also been plagued with flu/viral things so I am very slow getting back on my feet. So far the tests show this is all down to an under-active thyroid and I start the tablets tomorrow. So here’s hoping I shall be a new woman in a few months time.
- EXERCISE GOALS- This follows point number one. If I feel better I would like to do some excercise. Yoga, pilates, walking and getting on the bike. It may also follow that if I started a little excercise it might help point number one, but I’m so knackered I need a lie down just thinking about it.
- WRITING GOALS – I just want to get published. Is that too much to ask? Maybe that’s a little vague, so I shall break it down into manageable chunks. I shall endeavour to submit my novel Every Time I See you, ( a dual timeline historical romance set in Ireland and Cairo) to ten agents and see how I get on. I shall start writing book 2 in order to submit to the RNA New Writers Scheme in August 2018, and I shall write some short romantic stories set in Paris, from a variety of backgrounds and viewpoints, historical and contemporary, just because I like short stories.
So that’s how I hope 2018 will shape up for me, how about you?
