2011: Goals, New Beginnings and Other Plans
Happy New Year!!! Time for me to set my goals and promise myself to become more organized, healthier, more organized, better with money, more organized...Can you tell I need to get more organized?
Aside from curbing my penchant for chaos, it's that time of year where I look over my story ideas, my writing commitments and my schedule then decide what I will be putting out over the next twelve months. This last year I released my first novel, Maxie Briscoe: Werewolf, started a blog, wrote several features and reviews and started participating in a horror blog called Dead End. And, and I finished a story I had started a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Whoo Hoo!!
This year I have a historical erotic tale I'm currently working on, a zombie tale, a sequel to Michael's Keeper and am in the planning stages of a sequel to Maxie. I also have planned an erotic sci fi trilogy. I would also like to bring you all more here at the Imaginarium with author spotlights, book reviews, discussions and a free read or three.
I am also planning to step into the realm of Twitter. Keep your fingers crossed as I am very intimidated by this social media, but the time has come. I'll let you all know what my Twitter handle is shortly.
I am very pleased to announce that I will be doing some contributing to a wicked cool film blog called The Movie 411. Dempsey Sanders is the editor and creator of this amazing site and I urge you all to visit often. He has really interesting features, reviews and just everything you've ever wanted to know about the movies.
I also want to get healthier. I am a Type 2 diabetic and would love to reach a very ripe old age so that means I will be working hard to keep my condition under much more ruthless control. Plus I've slacked off in my weight-loss. I haven't gained weight, but neither have I continued to lose so that behavior is stopping. My ultimate long-term goals are to climb up the pyramids at Tikal, hike to the summit of Mount Fuji and run a marathon. Not this year of course, but within the next five or six years so I've got to get my rear in gear and really start hitting the exercise routine.
I also want to be much better off financially speaking. Which means I have to be better at marketing myself, have a better understanding of money and have a steady source of income. This is going to be tough, but it needs to be done.
What are your goals for this year? Feel free to post them here because I am all about encouragement. I'll be your cheerleader if you'll be mine. I found a great quote and it says "If I bring forth what is inside of me, what I bring forth will save me." I know we can reach our goals Imaginarians. Here's to a successful 2011 for us all!!
