New Year, New Goals

Hello Fellow Readers and Writers–

Well, we made it to 2020!  Hope this post finds you well.  I’ve been dealing with a cold since before Christmas, and am finally getting my energy levels back to normal, after a z-pak of antibiotics to knock this stupid thing out.  The cough lingers, but it’s getting less with each day.

I’m working on the 4th book in the Cookie Crumbles Series, One Complex Cookie.  I’ve had a good response to the first three books, and have three others planned.  Hope you’re enjoying the new series.

So what goals are you setting for this new year?  Me?  Well, I’m writing, of course, but I’m also tracking some daily, weekly and monthly habits.  I use my Happy Planner and a new thing I’m trying–Clear Habit Journal–which is a combination bullet journal and habit tracker.  I’m reading Atomic Habits by James Clear, who is one of the people who developed the Clear Habit Journal, together with Baron Fig.

I’m one of those crazy people who has a hunger for learning new things–even at the ripe old age of 73–and I challenge you to learn something new this year too.  It doesn’t have to be something major, just as long as you learn something.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn another language, or a new craft, or new knit or crochet stitches, or ______________ (fill in the blank).  Go for it!  Learning is fun.

Meanwhile, happy reading and writing to you all.

    I have been having fun reading your mystery series every evening.They are a quick read for a person who is like me. My concentration is very scattered but for some reason I can read your books in one setting.
    I’m 70,and knit and crochet; more so since this Covid-19.I’m getting ahead of my Christmas gifts.And I happily started to read again. Before I was playing in different music groups four nights a week. No music for me now.
    I used to live in Fullerton, California. I moved to Flagstaff near two of my grandchildren,son and his wife after my husbanad died. We were married 46 years. We would remote camp in Big Bear for years. When he just got too sick we rented a cabin for two weeks.. Unfortunately that lasted only two years before he died. Anyway, I mentioned this because it’s so much like reading about Big Bear in your series. I like that. My other grandchildren are Irish and live in Drogheda, Ireland with their Irish dad and my daughter.
    I would like to know where I can get your knitting and crocheting patterns and recently the food recepies since I’m readibng on a Kindle.
    Can’t wait to start the next book tomorrow evening.
