My Writing Projects for 2020

One thing I have yet to talk about on here, surprisingly, is what is on my agenda with my writing. In fact, I haven’t talked much about writing at all!
Which you would think would be strange coming from a writer. But I also absolutely love to help others find their way. So there’s that too. I can often get focused a little too hard on one thing, forgetting about the rest. Well, not forgetting, cause I write daily just about, but I haven’t blogged about it yet. Too caught up with other things! To all the readers out there, my sincerest apologies.

I have a lot of writing projects ahead of me this year if you count all the blog posts, articles, etc. But currently, I plan to publish 6 books this year. And I’m not counting any client work, just my own personal projects in this post – client work is its own list of projects! All 6 books will fall into two book series, The Portal Series and The Revelations Universe. Unless something changes, of course. I have many, many other book-length projects to work on – but I need to start somewhere (and actually finish) so I’m narrowing my focus a bit.

Upcoming Titles (Subject To Change)

  • Meg’s Story – Book 0.5 of The Portal Series
  • The Emperor’s Bride – Book 1 of The Portal Series
  • The Werewolf Queen – Book 2 of The Portal Series
  • The Rapture – Book 1 of The Revelations Universe
  • Locust Loving – Book 2 of The Revelations Universe

The 6th book I’m not sure of yet, but it will be in one of those two series. There’s a book that goes in between The Emperor’s Bride and The Werewolf Queen that I could do, or I could do another Revelations book. Maybe if things work out this year, I can do both and finish one ahead. These particular ones already have ideas or have been started/worked on, or some progress has been made in some fashion.

(Thinking out loud) Probably should do book 1.5 of The Portal Series, since it is a fairly linear series – even though the .5 books are more “extras.” We’ll see. Revelations Universe is completely nonlinear, which is why it is a universe rather than have series at the end of it. Either way, none of these books are going to get out if I don’t write them, and stop worrying so much over what book to do when! I feel that the 6th book or whatever will make itself known as progress is steadily being made, and some of these books get out there into the wild.

I have more photo books to put out too, but that’s not writing, so not much more than an aside in this post.

Trust me when I say that I have a LOT planned for 2020. Not only large writing projects but more variety in blog posts as well, as well as other things for the blog. I am the Idea Queen – I just often lack the time to get everything finished when I want them to be finished. I probably actually have more ideas than I have lifespan left, but that isn’t going to stop me from trying as many of them as I can. So look for that in the coming year.

What are your major projects for the year? Have you started already or is something holding you back?

Happy New Year!

Welcome, 2020! We greet you with joy – or at least I do. 2019 didn’t seem to be a good year for many, at least on my social media. But right now, we have that moment of hope, before routine and daily living turn us back into mindless drones…the birth of 2020.

There’s nothing quite like the birth of a new year – it’s almost like all of humanity holds its breath in excitement and awe, filled with hope for what the year will bring. Generally, that lasts until the first Monday after the new year, then it’s back to the same ole same.

Happy New Year! We get excited, we plan, we hope – then come Monday, we give up. Why is that? Why do we not hold on to the good feelings, and instead succumb to the usual apathy? Because apathy is comfortable, we’re familiar with it – feeling good for too long makes us uncomfortable. Feeling numb is comfortable, familiar and unchallenging – it doesn’t make us want things we think we can’t have. Hope makes us want to be better – better people, better selves. It tells our excuses where they can stick it – and reasons are just excuses in disguise, no matter how valid they may be.

This year can be different. Embrace being uncomfortable in 2020 and make your resolutions or goals stick. Inertia is what is holding you back, but once you start, you will build momentum – and it’s hard to stop something once it gets moving. All you have to do is keep moving, even if it’s only 5 minutes a day…it all adds up. An object in motion (that’s you) will stay in motion – but an object at rest (you again) will stay at rest. 

Which do you want to be in 2020? Happy New Year!
