The inspirational title of my day planner for 2020 is “Grand Plans”.
It’s funny how so many sayings about plans are negative ones:
“If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”
“No plan survives first contact with an opposing force.”
“Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.”
Once upon a time I used to review music albums and concerts on my blog.
I always enjoyed doing this because music is such an important part of my life. I only allow myself to watch TV/Netflix on weekends, but I listen to music all day every day.
I got away from blogging about music the further I progressed in my writing journey, centering most posts on that instead. This was especially the case after I reduced my blogging schedule from once a week to twice a month.
(Continued from Part 1)
Last week, I wrote about the care I take with word choice in writing
Specifically, the first of three questions that I ask myself in attempting to create a narrative that sounds of a bygone era for historical fiction.
As writers, we all naturally pay close attention to the words we use in our prose.
Being a writer of historical fiction has made me even more mindful of word choice.
Last week, I wrote about how I don’t often give books five-star ratings.
Even less often do I give one-star.
I’ve mentioned before how I review every book that I read.
It surely goes without saying that I love writing five-star reviews best of all.
Every year I make New Year’s Resolutions, but last year, I conceived of them in a different way.
A way more conducive to my successfully achieving them.
And so 2019 draws to a close.
All year I’ve been working toward my three major goals for the year that I set on January 1, 2019 (my New Year’s Resolutions).
The hardest part about reading is knowing when to stop.
This is obviously true when a gripping story threatens to keep you up well past your bedtime. And all the more so in the midst of a book that is decidedly opposite to that.
I did this primarily to convince myself to follow my own advice.
