HAPPY NEW YEAR - LET THE GOALS ROLL



Hello all.

Happy New Year!

So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay.

Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment.

I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assistants left a sour taste in my mouth. But who cares? After all iPhones are practically licenses to print money, what does one lost sale mean?

So I've lost all my apps but I'm happy learning the Android way. So that was 2017 for me.

These are four of my 2018 goals

  1. Lose 10kg about 20lbs because I want to wear all my old clothes. I've got some really nice clothes and I can't afford to by that quality at the weight I am in now - a whole wardrobe of office clothes that would come in useful in my new role.
  2. Take packed lunch in for the next six months. This is pretty hard because I have a little more disposable cash so I spend.
  3. Publish my novel and at least a short story in a pay market.
  4. Get out of being a social recluse and workaholic and socialise more. This is even more so because I tend to write after work. Also all my friends are living different lives, or moved away or lost touch. Now to be honest, I ain't talking internet social media social life. That I have. In fact plenty of, but I just feel I need to expand beyond the realms of work and social media.
  5. Do a blog post at least once a fortnight.
How am I tracking all this?

Well I just found out about the bullet journal which I'm trying out for six months. I'm so excited about it, and I even showed a close relation. http://bulletjournal.com and there are a few on youtube.

So far so good.

Other news

I've closed down my other word press blog because I wasn't updating it as much. It was suppose to be for writing and book reviews but I've decided to stick with this.

Expectations for this blog

Nah. I'll try and do a post a week. I can track that down. Yay.

So lets roll into 2018.

Best wishes

Anna (aka B) Day xx

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.
