As 2018 and I part ways, I am greeting 2019 as a new friend full of endless opportunities. There are new challenges to take, new goals to reach and I for one am excited to start fresh.
A Room With A View
The first thing that I hope get’s completed in this year is the purchase of our new home. We are currently just waiting on the seller to stopp faffing about and sign!
I will once again have a room with flat walls (no more bumping my head every time I stand up) and windows… omg I will have windows… I can actually see out of.
This will give me a larger space to work in, which means I will be able to have full access to all my novel notes once more (most are still packed).
A New Role
I have been given the mavelous opportunity to be the Social Media Editor for the 85K Writing Challenge. In case you don’t know what that is, read my article about it, then read Rachel’s article about it, then go check out their website.
I am thrilled to be given this chance to partake in the challenge in an additional way and reach out to more people in the writing community.
Lights, Camera, Action
One of this year’s (many) projects I want to be working on, is video! I am hoping to broaden my reach by actually using my YouTube account that has been empty for waaay too long.
Yours truly won’t be sat before a camera, wide-eyed, panicking and struggling to remember my lines… definitely not! I may be pushing my anxiety boundaries but not that far! I’m not “front of the camera” material.
Also, these videos, when I finally start making them, will not replace my blog, they will complement it by giving people a different method to enjoy my material.
This year will be when I finally finish all the updates of my old content, which should make it easier to find relevant articles. I have some new ideas for expanding my blog, so keep an eye out for those.
As always, I am looking for new Guest Posters for my Wednesday slots. So if you want to get some exposure, please read my Guest Poster Policy and then check out the deadline dates available at the bottom. Please note these fill up fast!!
I am now looking for new people to join my Resource Team where you can be part of my “A Writer’s Guide” series. If you have a skill or occupation you feel would benefit other writers (who may need the details for creating characters), please check out my Resource Team policy and use the form to confirm your topic.
For those who receive my newsletter, you will have seen I am now doing Reviews – both books and products. So, if you are an author and are interested in having a book review on this blog, check out my Book Review Guidelines first.
It’s all Write
I have a lot to get done with my writing this year. For too many years my writing has fallen behind other tasks and goals.
Not this year.
2019 is my “come out swinging” year. I have a number of manuscripts at different stages and I want them all finished, edited and ready for betas.
What are you hoping to get done in 2019?
I hope you all had a wonderful New Year. I look forward to connecting with you all throughout the year. Feel free to drop me a message in the comments, I love hearing from you 🙂
