WELCOME ME BACK!!

Hey there my beloved blogger friends! Hope all is well with you guys. I’ve been gone for several months due to an unexpectedly accidental computer mishap, among other things. But I’m back. Again. <Rolling eyes> Let’s see if I can keep up with you guys this time.

I’d be remiss not to put out there how much I’ve missed blogging and my blogging friends. I hope I haven’t lost too many of you in my absence. I just wanted you all to know that I’m OK.   XOXOXO

Please take a moment to thank the co-hosts for all their hard work this month. 

I can’t believe January has come and gone and we’re in February already. I usually set goals for the year in January, with a mid-year goal check, and year-end final analysis. I’m starting late this year because the past couple of months have been difficult on a personal level. You can read more about it on my other blog My Miracle Life.

Keeping it short and simple, here are my most important goals for 2016:

  1. Continue writing and submitting stories to contests.
  2. Get back to blogging my regularly scheduled blog posts (which was going so well until everything went haywire)
  3. Dedicate time for guest bloggers
  4. Continue working on my long neglected WIP

What are your goals for this year? Did you accomplish everything you planned to last year? Are you trying anything new or out of your comfort zone?

The awesome co-hosts for this month’s posting of the IWSG are: Nancy Gideon, Bob R Milne, Doreen McGettigan, Chrys Fey, Bish Denham, and Pat Garcia!

Make sure you thank them for their hard work today!!  😀

I owe you all an apology. I haven’t been blogging for the past several weeks, nor have I been on social media much. Haven’t been feeling well lately. I explained as much in my #IWSG post on My Miracle Life blog.  I’d been doing well for the past several months until I hit a bump in the road a few weeks back.

It’s time for me to catch up with you guys now. It’s going to take a little time, but most of you know how I feel about you. My last post was about 3.5 weeks ago, so I’ve no doubt I missed a lot of good stuff while offline.

I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but my entry never made to WRiTE CLUB this year. I’ll have to try again next year. Maybe, if I still feel like a writer. I’m basically doubting everything right now.

All I really want to know right now is, how are YOU all doing? I’ve missed you guys since I’ve been away. Oh, okay. Fine. Just one about me. Have you ever gotten enough story rejections to make you stop submitting for a while? Just curious.

I can’t believe the first half of 2015 has come and gone! It’s been an interesting and eventful six months for me. I’ve met and exceeded my goals for the first half of the year. I’m proud of that accomplishment. Although my blogging hasn’t been on a set schedule, I’ve managed to keep up the minimum three posts per month I set for myself.

I’ve been able to get more writing time in, which is a great thing. Editing some of my older stories has taken up some of my time. I’m getting back into content writing that’s been on the back burner for the better part of the year. My attempts at poetry have been meh, but I’m not giving up.

Me time has definitely been a good thing for me in my efforts to decompress and de-stress. I’m going to take it easy with my writing over the summer and enjoy some good times.

I do plan on increasing my social media presence though. I’ve been a bad girl in that department.

How have you made out the first half of 2015? What are your plans for the summer – increasing or decreasing your online presence? Until next month…

Please make it a point to stop by and thank them for all their hard work!

May kept me busy. Busy is good. I was able to get a decent amount of writing done, in addition to my blog postings (for both), doctor appointments, and some allocated ‘me’ time.

Although I did have a couple of personal stumbling blocks, the month was productive in the way of writing/blogging goals. Steady as she goes! After April’s A-Z Challenge, May felt like a breeze. 🙂 I’m continuing to work on a story I started in April and I have a good idea where it’s going, so now I only need to give myself a deadline for the first draft. I’m considering the end of summer.

How productive was your May? Working on any upcoming projects? If so, are you rushing to complete them, or are you taking them slow and steady? If there’s anything this blogger can help you with, please let me know.  🙂
