Happy 2020. I’m walking into it with clear vision. I’m not making New Year Resolutions, but I am setting goals.
To spend more time with family and friends, creating wonderful memories of joy. To travel to destinations my hubby and I have never visited, stockpiling additional settings for future books. To getting another new book out, so my fans can enjoy one more mystical story. I’m committed to learning more about crafting, editing, and strengthening my writing to continue bringing emotion to the page. (See my NEWS page for an exciting course I’ll be hosting at our beach house in the Fall!)
I’m determined to learn more about promotion and sharing fellow authors’ books to help widen the audience for others. I’ll continue to host and attend writers’ retreats to keep the camaraderie brewing within the writing world. We always have such fun brainstorming, then working on our individual projects. There’s something magical about the energy in the room.
I plan to attend only a few conferences this year, the ones that celebrate authors and readers alike. What a fabulous way to network and meet new people, visit with old friends, and make new friends for life!
What are your plans this year? What adventures do you have planned so far? What goals do you hope to reach?
Can’t wait to hear how you plan to dive into 2020…So, please share.
Wishing you a healthy, happy and prosperous year!
Until next time,
Hugs – Christine
Hi. I’m starting the new year with a new purpose and a new look. My new website is up and I’d like you to take a look at it. www.christinemazurk.com
walking The Beach
I have two books to finish writing and a marathon to train for, so I’m reorganizing how I work in 2017. The mornings will start with a run or some other workout, then I’ll get to the computer to write.
I plan to walk the beach at low tide to focus on the scenes that still need to be written, and I’m inviting you to come along. We’ll do this a few times a month. I’ll share some of my thoughts about what the characters are doing without giving away too much of the story.
Today we’ll walk with PJ Madison and Spencer Hayes, the two main characters in Passion’s Promise. PJ has reluctantly agreed to train for an Ironman race to help heal her splintering family. It was a difficult decision for her as she’s graduating from veterinary school and currently studying for the boards. Spencer, her best friend, basically cornered her to accept her mother’s challenge and because he knows how dead set against competition PJ is, he has decided to train with her and race by her side.
I’m imagining the tension that can arise between two friends as they focus on the three disciplines, two of which are PJ’s strengths, the other not-so-much! As I think about their first bike ride together, I imagine them getting passed by a group of pros. Knowing the bike is not PJ’s strength, will Spencer take chase and try to catch the pros or will he stick with his best friend to keep her focused? I know the scenario that’s running through my head, so I best get back to the computer and get it captured on the pages.
Until next time, hugs!!!
