As tomorrow is my 41st birthday, it's the time of the year that I like to look back and look forward on my life at the same time. The start to 2019 has been a bit rough for me on the health front, so that is something that I have been thinking a lot about as I age. I have been eating much better of late simply by making sure to cook more at home and I am getting exercise in as my body allows and those are the things that I am still going to focus on. I believe that I can help my health and so I am really going to focus on that this next year of my existence.
I am of course taking stock of my writing career as well. I have accomplished a lot as an author this far, I am published and that is more than many people ever get. Now I want to keep pushing myself and learning and growing as an author. This year I am pushing into some new genres. The main one you will be seeing if fantasy, I have several fantasy projects in the works. I am also going to keep writing horror short stories. I am proud to say that I have had 4 short stories already accepted this year when my goal was to have 6 for the whole year, so I think that I will several on the way in 2019! I want to also perhaps submit to one of the major publishing houses this year and see about maybe getting an agent so that I then can focus more time on writing.
And as always, I am going to focus on my work/life balance. I am getting there, I really am. The day job situation is great. I am getting writing done and still have time for reading and more. I am making more art. I am spending quality time with my friends and family. I know that I can be more productive but I am doing the best I can at the moment and that is all that I can ask of myself.
So these are just some of the musings I am having the eve before my birthday. I will be offline tomorrow as I am celebrating with my spouse and family. See you all later!
