Day 2861 – Is Your Dream Taking A While? Take Heart

As I scrolled through my On This Day on Facebook this morning, I saw my blog post from this day last year. I was still cranking away on my first book. That sucker took FOREVER to write. Years, actually. It felt so good to finally finish and put that guy out into the world. I look back and think, “why did I wait so long?” I know part of the reason was the type of book I wrote was one that needed a long marination in my brain. I felt myself changed in the process. Now that it is published, and I’ve gone through the process, it it much easier to take the journey. I’m working on two books right now – planning a road trip on any budget, and a memoir on my alcoholism and sobriety (this is a little hint towards my big goals…) I am getting super close to the next step in my road trip book (proofreading) and it is just crazy how quickly this book came together. I think I started with a completely blank slate in January, and here I am only a few months later and getting close to publishing my second book. So friends, take heart if your journey is taking longer than you thought it would. It may be that growth is what’s needed now.

Day 2858 – The Importance Of Big Goals

Yesterday, I made a big goal for myself. I’m not ready to share what that is with you guys yet, but stay tuned. I can tell you this – I hope to have this goal met by June 18th, my 35th birthday. Stay tuned for more info as things move along!

Here’s something I’ve discovered about myself – I need big goals, I need deadlines, and I need to have something I care about deeply. By setting a date on the calendar, I worked backwards to figure out what I need to do, and when. It’s crazy how much of a jump start this gave me today. I’ve accomplished more in this particular area this morning than I have in a month.

What are your big goals? Are you afraid to set them? Let me know in the comments below.

Day 2852 – My Book Is A Success

When I wrote my book, I had one definition of what success would be – that if even only one person was helped, it was a success.

Last night, I happened to look at my books on Amazon. For some reason, I wasn’t notified that I got a review. My first review! Here was someone who had read the book, and was helped enough to write a review. I called Bret over to show him, I couldn’t even read it out loud because of my tears. I’m so glad I finally put my words into a cohesive book. It makes writing my next books that much easier.

Day 2841 – My 100th Book Read In 2017!

Last night, I finished I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh. It was the 100th book I’ve read this year. There are a few reading challenges I started this year, but I’ve lazily let them slide and have only been reading what’s on my To Be Read List and whatever catches my eye at the library. I’m sure I’ll get back to them because there are great things on the various lists.

Before you think I don’t have a life, here’s some numbers of the books I’ve read so far this year:
22 are full/chapter books.
3 of those 22 were shorter children’s chapter books, but long enough that I felt justified in calling them a full book.
1 of those 22 was a book of Liz Climo cartoons.
78 of the 100 were children’s books.
100 total books…but maybe we say I read 22?

What do you think? Should I say I’ve read 100 books or 22?
