This was the year I began by choosing a word to encourage my forward progress. I chose the word devoted. I hadn’t done that before and it seemed like an interesting idea. It was a question proposed by an instagram account I follow.
I chose to be devoted. To see what would happen if I just devoted myself to my family, my writing, myself. The results are that I have spent this year happier. I have spent it in the moment with my family and I have completed two drafts of two books. I sent the latest drafts off to two different people who will give me honest criticism this past week.
At the beginning of 2019 I wanted to finish 3 books. To me finishing meant sending them off to readers and seeing what happened. 2 are gone and I am about to begin the third.

For now I have a book draft to read.
Along with a child to move in NYC and a family to enjoy. Not to mention books to read!
