#43 Daily Writing Journal -Cold is so bad so still in bed. Dream Goal Plan Action Reality.

Cold is so bad so still in bed.

It's horrible and probably the worse I've had in year. It could be the flu, but I'm not sure. My throat was so sore and burning. I feel pants, I really do feel terrible, so I've been stuck in bed.

Dream Goal Plan Action Reality

dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams reality.
I saw this somewhere on a picture and it seemed so simple. Common sense. Simple but difficult to achieve especially if a person has other conflicting goals or priorities.

For example, I had a goal to achieve something within 1-2 years but it took me six years because of a family bereavement, bad relationship drama and awful work environment. It took me a while to snap back, very long while to get back to some sense of normality.

I'm late with my writing goals because I work full time, and write within my spare time.  Writing can be quite obsessive to the exclusion of others so I also have to manage that. So I'm years late. I'm also compromising by self-publishing even though a part of me wants to go the traditional route - but that is a way paved with frustration and disappointment, though the rewards at the end are high.

I also dream way above my 'pay grade' or abilities and at time I need to have a reality check as to what is possible.

Sometimes taking action for make a goal a reality takes a certain amount of risk and moving out of our comfort zone. It's easy to write plans on paper but following can be difficult and hard.

Risk...it's all about risk, conflicting goals and what is important.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
