Planning out a whole year? Am I crazy? Well, perhaps. But I like to take stock of my methods and change them if they stop working for me. Now, while monthly goals and daily tasks do work, they weren't having the effect I needed for long-term goal planning.

If you follow my newsletter and my social media (aren't you awesome!) you'll know that I was invited to be part of a fantasy Anthology book. I'm one of ten writers who wrote a short story on the theme of magic that will be bundled up into this gorgeous book which is coming out THIS MONDAY!! OMG!
It's not a secret that I'm not the biggest fan of social media, though I do appreciate its necessity these days. I have also been lucky enough to meet some marvellous people through social media so I try and give it the attention it deserves.

Every reader I know has an ever-growing To Be Read list. With the ease of ebook publishing, now more than ever can you get your hands on cheap, easily stored books. We all joke about the mountain of books, both digital and physical, that we continue to build without reading. But as a writer, I want to actually read the books I have, not just collect them. After all, I want people to read MY books when they come out rather than have them languishing on someone's TBR list. So, I needed a plan!
If you've been writing for a while, there will come a time when you hate your writing. Maybe some of it, maybe all of it, who knows - but there will come a time when everything you write just makes you angry, sad, upset, dejected...pick your word. So let's talk about it! 😀
