Wednesday Challenge 010621

 



Today's topic is: My goals for 2021.

Last year started with so much promise and went bust. Writers2writers was resurrected and I was meeting  with four to five other writers at a library and we were sharing our stories and ideas. I started a story that's been on the back burner for over forty years. I was writing at the library as I can't write at home.

I revised most of my e-stories on Amazon and turned them into paperbacks. This is a launching pad for what I want to do this year.

Just when I have books that I can have book signings at Treasure House books and other places, they were shut down.

This year I'm back into an office twice a week. My attorney friend shut down his practice, but has reopened it part time. I get to use the office on the days he staying home. I'm making progress Private Pain, my next book. It's a science fiction story about colonizing new solar systems.

I have three short stories: Apple of Success, Cloisonn√© Heart and Convert or Corrupt. I'm combining them into an anthology and will publish them as paperback in a day or two. 
I'm hoping that the restrictions will be lifted by spring or summer and I can have book signings.

Thank you Brooke.

That's frustrating, I imagine! Hopefully things get better soon and you can do those signings. Good luck with the writing! :)

Thanks Greg.

Good luck!
I want to try my hand at short stories again.
I hope the SF goes well. Sounds neat.

Marianne Arkins said...

I think most folks are going to start this post with "last year didn't work as planned" ... LOL!

Good luck staying on track with your writing. I'm hoping to see the world open back up in the spring as well. ::: fingers crossed:::

I really would love to see a return to at least a little normalcy. I miss seeing people smile.

I'm cheering you on, Patrick! I would love to do a book signing this year, too. Keeping everything crossed it will happen in the fall. Happy New Year!

Good luck with the writing! And that's awesome your friend is letting you use his office when he's not in it.

Thanks Echo, good luck with trying short stories again.

P M Prescott said...

Marianne, I think all of us are wanting normalcy, or at least a safer society.

P M Prescott said...

Megan, you and Marianne are sooooo right.

P M Prescott said...

As I am for you, Lydia.

P M Prescott said...

Happy New Year to you, Mary. A book signing again would be nice for a lot of us.

P M Prescott said...

Aymee, yes he is a great friend.

Judy said...

Best of luck... and glad you have a place you can write. What a great arrangement (and safe!). I'm wanting to get back into writing - hoping the new Friday Five on LASR will help with that! My post for today is here: http://jhthomas.blogspot.com/2021/01/wednesday-weekly-blogging-challenge.html
