What are your plans for next year? Okay, so we can’t plan holidays abroad, not even to visit places in our own country unless you’re living somewhere untouched by this pandemic. Myself and my family live in an area that is in tier four. No mixing indoors or moving outside our area. Okay, there are some who don’t care about rules, or don’t think they apply to them. I’m not one to live dangerously when it comes to my health. I just don’t see how you can complain about others if you’re not following the rules yourself. 🤷♀️
Anyway, my writing gives me all the escapism I need. Writing and reading are the ultimate in escapism. You can go anywhere be it outer space or the deepest of oceans. You can time travel or relive many lives.
So now I’m busy thinking about my next novel. The story is all mapped out and the characters are waiting in the wings to take centre stage. First I must complete the editing on my vampire novel over the next few days. Then my husband and I will read through it before I return it to my publisher.
I have a short story to finish editing to sent off for the Bridge House submission for their Christmas 2021 anthology. I’m also planning to write a second novel for the second half of 2021 too. I want to really push myself with my novel writing and hope that my writing style will be enjoyed by both publishers and most importantly readers too, but we will see.
Here’s hoping 2021 gives us more joy than sadness. And all those who have lost their homes and jobs will have a brighter New Year.
So dear readers, let me know what you’re planning for 2021, or do you just go with the flow?
I’m off to do some editing and I’m hoping that 2021 is more new writing as most of this year has been editing for me. 😂📚
