We’ll Take a Cup of Kindness
My husband spent the morning searching on the internet for tips on the care and feeding of vacuum cleaners and then he spent the afternoon watching videos on how to clean every crevice and cranny of the machine.
I spent the morning searching the internet for “questions to reflect on at the end of the year” and then I spent the afternoon laughing at the suggestions and making up my own even nuttier questions. I am not for much introspection, although I did regret not eating more peanut M&Ms this year. So yes, hubby had the more productive day.
However, I did try something new in 2017 and so I do want to ponder it before 2018 roars in.
I started 2017 with a new goal. Resolved: To be open to anything that presents itself to me this year!
I set this goal last January, because I had spent the past two years writing the three books in my Charli series and then learning how to market them. By 2017, I was ready for something new and eager to learn more so I decided to stay open to see what would come to me.
What came to me? More than I expected!
I explored Facebook Live and I made some other videos!
I was asked by the founder of Readers Review Room, Traci Sanders, to be a reviewer for her book lovers site. This opened me up to more than just the joy of reading more books, because from her and her resources I have learned so much more about connecting with readers.
I wrote a short story and entered it into a contest. Didn’t win but
