I can’t believe I just wrote 2019! I’ll have to get used to that. I really don’t know where 2018 went. Yet, I am excited to step into the new year. Are you?
As I write my novels, I think about what the character feel about the new years they step toward. Of course, I know, since I write historical fiction, what they are facing. But they don’t. In my Revolutionary Faith series, Louis and Elizabeth see 1773 through the eyes of the pre-revolution full of questions and hopeful outcomes; 1774 with the consequences of their choices looming but hazy; 1775 battle lines drawn, and a backward path blocked forever; and 1776, well we all know about the difficult walk to independence. I doubt they wanted any of that at the beginning, but each year brought challenges–some difficult, some full of joy.
2019 is just the same! Well, I hope there is not a revolution. I don’t know when I pass from 2018 to 2019 what changes I will have to make or difficulties I’ll have to face; but, I know God has plans for me and mine that I haven’t dreamed of yet. I can’t wait to share with you what I find out in the new year.
Here are a few of my goals (although they might change as life intervenes):
- Re-release of Surround Me, Jan. 1.
- Release of Bring Me Near, Feb.!!! So excited!
- Finish writing Draw Me to Your Side
(Revolutionary Faith Book Four)
- Help build a deck.
- Travel with my husband to someplace adventurous.
Here we all go whether we want to or not…..2019 awaits.
Do you have any goals or dreams for this year?
Your New year plan sounds so full of excitement! I look forward to reading book 3!!! proud of you.
