I can’t believe I just wrote 2019! I’ll have to get used to that. I really don’t know where 2018 went. Yet, I am excited to step into the new year. Are you?
As I write my novels, I think about what the character feel about the new years they step toward. Of course, I know, since I write historical fiction, what they are facing. But they don’t. In my Revolutionary Faith series, Louis and Elizabeth see 1773 through the eyes of the pre-revolution full of questions and hopeful outcomes; 1774 with the consequences of their choices looming but hazy; 1775 battle lines drawn, and a backward path blocked forever; and 1776, well we all know about the difficult walk to independence. I doubt they wanted any of that at the beginning, but each year brought challenges–some difficult, some full of joy.
2019 is just the same! Well, I hope there is not a revolution. I don’t know when I pass from 2018 to 2019 what changes I will have to make or difficulties I’ll have to face; but, I know God has plans for me and mine that I haven’t dreamed of yet. I can’t wait to share with you what I find out in the new year.
Here are a few of my goals (although they might change as life intervenes):
- Re-release of Surround Me, Jan. 1.
- Release of Bring Me Near, Feb.!!! So excited!
- Finish writing Draw Me to Your Side
(Revolutionary Faith Book Four)
- Help build a deck.
- Travel with my husband to someplace adventurous.
Here we all go whether we want to or not…..2019 awaits.
Do you have any goals or dreams for this year?
