So This is 2015

I know. I know. You're not supposed to wish your life away. I need to enjoy and be grateful for each healthy day. So I will be. But I'll admit it is really difficult because I cannot wait for 2016. 

2016 is scheduled to be an awesome year for my career. I have 6 books slated to be published. That's pretty exciting considering I've published 1 in the last 30-some years of my life.

Winter 2016: The Dino Files: Book 1 (chapter book)
March 2016: Excellent Ed (picture book)
May 2016: Mr. Fuzz Buster Knows He's the Favorite (picture book)
July 2016: 101 Reasons I'm Not Taking a Bath (picture book)
Fall 2016: Beautiful (picture book)
Late 2016: The Dino Files: Book 2 (chapter book)

But this post is about 2015 and just what am I going to do with this year that lies ahead of me.

This is a no-brainer. I will be writing and revising all year long. Hi Hi Ho. I'm lucky to do the job I love full-time. And while I may not work 8 to 5 Monday through Friday, I essentially work every day. 

Other goals I have for my non-publishing 2015.
TRAVEL: already have 3 trips planned
SEE JIMMY FALLON/TONIGHT SHOW: IM me if you know when tickets will be available
EXERCISE: at least once
TAKE A CLASS: screenwriting and basic drawing are on my list
GET ORGANIZED: reduce the number of useless gadgets and free mugs in the kitchen
GET A THIRD DOG: probably not going to happen but a girl can dream
VOLUNTEER: I do some, but it feels so good, why not do more
LEARN TO TYPE:  the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog
USE BULLET JOURNAL: only been a few weeks but loving it so far
BLOG MORE: will try
BE THANKFUL: so simple yet so hard to remember
LOVE THE MOMENT: yesterday is history and tomorrow is not a guarantee, so I will try to love the moment
