What are your Plans for 2016?

Now that Christmas and New Years Eve are behind us, have you thought about what you want to do in 2016? Or what you should do?

No, I'm not asking what your resolutions for the new year are because most people don't keep up with resolutions. But surely you've thought about the coming year that is before you.

In my case, I'm hoping to spend more quality time with family--especially those I don't get to see often. Since it's getting harder and harder for hubby and I to travel, it means relying on our 2nd eldest daughter who is willing to drive us places. We are fortunate that two of our four children live nearby as do many grands and greatgrands. However, one daughter is in Camarillo and another down in Murrieta with grandkids there and in nearby Temecula--along with greatgrands.

I'm also working on a new Deputy Tempe Crabtree book, and need to finish it.

March will bring a new Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery to promote. I'm working on a blog tour now for mid April--that means finding people to host me and writing what I hope will be intriguing posts for each one.

In February I'll be attending a Public Safety Writers Association board meeting in Ventura--means daughter will be driving, but also a chance to see youngest daughter and two of our grandkids. At the board meeting one of the things we'll be doing is finalizing plans for the PSWA annual writing conference in July. One thing we'll be doing differently is having a writing seminar the morning and afternoon before registration for the conference. And yes, I've agreed to be a part of that.

Except for some doctor appointments, I don't have much written on my 2016 calendar, but I'm sure as the days progress, events will be added.

No one can really know what will be happening in the future, and since hubby and I are growing older, big changes could be ahead. But for now, I'll look forward to each day as it comes.

Share with us what you have planned.

My WIP is a standalone thriller, a genre I haven't attempted before. I've also resolved to give up most evening TV to read more after my eye surgery, and to help others as often as possible.

I didn't make resolutions this year as I've never followed through. Instead, I made up my mind to finish my second book in a reasonable amount of time, be more empathic and understanding and lighten up for the rest of my years on this earth. I did this in a way where I'll keep these thoughts on my mind and simply start doing what I need to do to make them work.

I have two unfinished books, which I said last year I'd get done, but did a different one instead. I must get them out of the way!

I'm glad to see others get distracted from what I'd call goals rather than resolutions. My advice is just keep plugging away.
