This is kind of what my mind is like, and my calendar, and my soon-to-be-added-to to-do list. My paid gig is closing down, just another 7 days. Lots will be happening around August, none of which I’m in control of, but I can make decisions once I know if something will happen. More waiting until September/October.

While I’m waiting, I’ll be adding to my calendar and to-do list about projects to work on. I have plenty in the queue! And I have a few habits I want to work on. These next 3 months are ripe for productivity! Maybe my crystal ball will be working by the fall, and I’ll know what decisions to make.

Putting down words in The Bookie. Scrambling with other stuff, so no progress on the short story. Haven’t heard about where the audiobook is in the production process… maybe no news is good news? My Stars Series Boxed Set and the Tanner Trilogy Boxed Set are still on sale, $2.99 and $3.99 on all platforms for the rest of the month. In June, different books will be on sale. Nothing moving yet on Patreon. My web designer has a list of what to move and what to let go of for the dismantling of My Joy Enterprises, set to be completed by June 30.

Here’s hoping that with a little time, clarity will be my friend.

Rediscovered Joy

Photo by Michele Venne When I started writing, I was awed by the feeling of joy at being in the flow as the words spilled easily onto the page. Forty titles later, I can say that each project had its ups and downs. No two were the same. And at times, I didn't feel the...
