What are you thankful for this year?
From a writerly viewpoint, I am thanking God that I am alive. My cardiologist told me a couple of months ago that I have heart problems (family history is part of the reason). I have so many books left to write and I wonder now if I will have enough time the rest of my life to write them all! But the WIN for me this year is that I am now actively dealing with my health again – getting back to proper nutrition, lose weight, and exercise. This will only make me more productive as an author, and I hope to be able to finish all the series I started 4-5 years ago. I should be able to start writing my 22nd book soon.
Due to all the extra health issues I had to deal with the last 2 months, I did not meet my writing deadline this month (December), and now I am late in my overall schedule (editorial, not publishing). So that is a LOSS for me this because I am supposed to be writing the next book RIGHT NOW and yet I am finishing up what should have been done and out the door in October. Still, thank God for the breath of life. Timing is in His hands, and perhaps for such a time as this, He has an important lesson I must learn.
