The ABCs to Facing Our Fears

Due to working a full-time day job for the past year and being right in the middle of moving from one home to another, Book #2 is not as far along as I’d like. However, I have just made a major decision to devote blogging time to making progress.

It takes me awhile, but I eventually figure it out, lol.

Hang in there with me. My goal is to have my second book, IT’S JUST YOUR IMAGINATION! The ABCs to Facing Our Fears, published before the end of the year.

Stay tuned here for monthly updates (today’s date: 4/7/2021). Thank you and may all be well with you and yours.

On the first weekend of May, I made some amazing progress on my second book. I was hoping to do so again this weekend, however, we are getting closer and closer to putting our house on the market. So, I am busily tackling much-needed to-dos toward that end.

The good news is my last work day on my current job is June 3. Sooo, guess what?! More writing time is on my horizon. I am truly excited and expect to make some real headway beginning on June 7.

My next update will come soon. Next weekend I will be writing and posting my blog on Social Media. Then, on the last weekend of May, I will post a major update for all my readers. Stay tuned!

A lot has happened since the middle of May. I have now been residing at our new homeplace. Our SA house has a contract on it with a closing date of August 31. And our son is building, or framing in, our little casita. He should wrap up his part of it in the next two days. Then, it will be awhile be the next person will be able to continue on it.

So far I have not been able to work on my second book yet. Life has me organizing and cleaning the dilapidated house we are currently staying in. And I am still running back to SA to bring the last of our things south.

It is my hopes to start back to writing on my book by mid-September. Although I had decided in early April to devote some of my blogging time to writing my book, it turns out that I really love to blog. So I haven’t gotten very far. The good news is I will use the first Sunday of the month to update everyone on my book progress. Maybe, just maybe, this will spur me into getting farther along on it.

Also, currently, I am researching life as a freelance graphic design artist. It turns out that, although I have been doing desktop publishing to a great extent over the past thirty years, my skills involve mainly MS Publisher and Canva. This is great, but I need more training. So, onward and upward. Thank goodness, I like to learn new things!

I will post an update here on this page again soon…..

Until the next time, stay safe and blessed πŸ™‚

I am still not writing on my second book.

Two things are keeping from proceeding ahead. Exhaustion and time.

To be creative, I need energy and…time. But…I am not worried. Soon, we will be fully moved from the city to the country, and I will have the luxury of rest and of time. I am eagerly looking forward to that moment…soon.

Hang in there with me. How you can help?

Send those positive vibes my way. Just a few more weeks and we will be there.

In the meantime, we have about three weeks before closing and four or five weeks for hubs to be fully retired.

Truly looking forward to that moment!

Thank you and God bless! πŸ™‚

  1. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

      Hi, Bobby. I’m sorry for the delay in reply. Your comment went to my Spam folder and I just happened to look at it while checking on something else. I use WordPress myself and, thankfully, have not had any problems with hackers to date that I know of. I haven’t had any experience with other blog platforms. We use WordPress at my work, as well, for their website. I’ve thought about researching other platforms only because I find WordPress somewhat difficult to get around on, but only because our work site operates differently, so it can be confusing to me. I finally decided to stick with my current blog here on WordPress, as I’ve had it for years. I just recently, over the summer, revamped it from a personal blog about my hobbies to focus primarily on my book and writing. Are you using plug-ins not supported by WordPress? I’m just wondering what would be causing you to have hackers. I’m currently learning about SEO to use WordPress more efficiently, but it will be awhile before I feel more confident about any new skills.

      Hi. I’m sorry. I don’t think I have audio setup on my website. I’ll look into though if you think it is on my end. Please feel free to let me know. Thank you and may you have a Happy New Year πŸ™‚
