End of the year stuff

Short and sweet, my sales sucked. I am not bothered by this in the least, for several reasons. The biggest being I knew 2012 was going to suck. Hell, I made a major move, and everything has just been nuts and it still isn’t exactly squared away.

Now I am still on ‘vacation’, I’m just recouping and taking time to get RL squared away. I am thinking on what I need to do with the businesses I run. Something has to give, I know what is going to be dropped. No, writing isn’t on the table. It’s safe and secure, I couldn’t live without writing.

I’m just not hell bent on driving myself into the ground.

Here‘s a great end of year numbers post from Kristine Rusch, you can see my comment down at the bottom (I always read the comments on her blog, they’re fascinating).

I have work to do, I may add about an hour a day into my schedule to get some writing business stuff squared away. I have a lot to think on and decide, from what to do about the shorts, larger projects, covers that need to be updated, whether or not I’m going to stick with smashwords & B&N and so on.

I need to stay focused with my health stuff. Changing diet and cutting out frivolous foods and drinks. I need to get into the habit of getting to sleep sooner. I do so much better with sleep.

I think the biggest issue of 2012 was lack of proper, consistent sleep. Without rest, I’m just a vegetable.

ohohohoh

 

Over at Forward Motion they’re offering a free 2 Year Novel course. Because I’m a dork, I went ahead and signed up (I *think* it’s still possible to sign up). You start with a basic idea and build it up to writing and ready for pubbing, whichever way you decide you want to publish. The first few months are, in all reality, very slow, so I figure I am not breaking my vacation if I’m only working on something once a week. **nods**

because, you know, I feel guilty if I am not writing in some format.

Stuff

Even though I tell myself I’m taking a writing break, my brain is screaming out stories and scenes. The only problem, of course, is the ideas are from multiple projects. From the Zander stories to the Elemental stories and everything in between. Meh. And my brain doesn’t seem to want to linger on any scene long enough for me to really write it out.

I jumped and went ahead and restarted my Turbofire workouts, yesterday. Why wait for tomorrow? It was so nice to get back to it. I love Chalene Johnson and the music really gets the blood pumping. I did have to modify the workouts, toddlers kept trying to join in and some of the leg work involved kicking. I can just imagine kicking and accidentally clocking a kid in the head. Plan on doing it again today.

Something I noticed, on the turbofire workout schedule you get, they have it listed Mon, Tues, and so on. With the workout for that day (or none for the restday) and for some reason my OCD would go nuts with it. We don’t run on a Mon – Sun schedule. Hubs’ day off is thurs and so things are just crazy nuts for us. I took a marker and struck through the days, so it’s just got the days and the workouts.

I can’t tell you how liberating it was.

Anyways I need to get my office cleaned, I would like it semi clean for the new year, do my workout then get some laundry done. Happy New Year!
