In 2021, I decided my word for my writing in 2022 would be ‘focus.’
Focus was something I really struggled with starting in 2019 when my husband was in and out of the hospital. 2020, as you can imagine, didn’t help those issues at all. But 2022 was possibly the most difficult year for me with writing.
I wrote two novellas last year. I love both of them. But it’s nowhere near what I usually manage to write.
Focus was probably not the best word to have picked.
Or maybe, it was.
I think, if nothing else, I learned a few lessons about being kind to myself. I definitely learned some painful lessons and taking a step back when I need to do so. And I also figured out when I need to push–and when not to do so when it comes to writing.
So, what did I manage by December 2022?
- Farm to Fabre
- Stubbed Toes and Dating Woes
How about 2023? What do I hope to achieve this year?
- A Cosy Mystery novella trilogy (I’ve already wrapped up book 1.)
- An Ace Romance
My word for this year is joy. To put that into action, my phrase for the year is finding what brings me joy in writing. Something I’ve found is incredibly important for me.
How about you? How did you manage in 2022? And what are you hoping to do this year?
