I learned that even in lock down, I am super busy. In fact, it seemed to get busier. I thought I would have lots of time for writing, but it didn’t work out that way. I learned that I need to just put my butt in a seat and write. There are always going to be distractions. Writing is my calling, my job. If I don’t make the effort, nothing will get done. Sitting down and setting timers really works for me.
I actually did sit down and plan out some things for next year. I plan on finishing the next book in my devotional companion series based on classic literature, I want to finish a journal, a cookbook that goes along with my book “Come Eat at My Table”, and finish my WIP “With Every Breath.” It looks like a full year, but if I just sit down and write, I will be able to accomplish all that and maybe even more!
