Time to get ready for another round - yay! The first day, July 1, is a holiday - not that the self-employed notice - so I'm doing this today. I will still try to work on some writerly things tomorrow, though.
My objectives may seem daunting to some. Firstly, I'm self-employed, so my schedule is flexible, and secondly, my job/passion/career is being a writer and author. In addition, my kids are all grown up, I'm single, have adjusted my lifestyle to a small but liveable pension, and live in a rental (maintenance free) apartment. All by choice, not luck. The only luck so far I guess is happening to run into a publisher last year at a small press book fair. He was just starting off and was looking for more authors, I had several books written and was looking to get published. Sort of looking, as in I hadn't started the cycle of mailings and rejections yet. Right now we're in the midst of final edits. After that, it will then go to copy/proof editors, then up on Kindle and Createspace.
My long term goals are to become a better writer and to become a successful (income earning) author. Both would be nice. Also, I'd like to ensure that I live life, make some positive contributions to it, and get/stay healthy enough to enjoy it.
