As you are all aware, 2019 is in full swing now. I have had a mixed year so far. My family recently got some really good news, followed quickly by some really depressing news. It’s hard to focus on the good when all I can think about is trying to survive the depressing part.
Despite that, I am trying to focus on things and figure out what I want to get done this year. I am one of those people who sets resolutions every year. I like them; I know some people don’t. I like to have goals and a plan, even if sometimes I don’t accomplish it all.
Here are my goals for 2019 that I don’t mind sharing with the world:
- Read 45 books (last year I read 39, so I am trying to go a bit beyond that this year).
- Complete the draft of my novel and edit it. (Believe it or not, I am dangerously close to having a complete first draft).
- Write 12 short stories on my blog again.
- Finish 4 large cross stitch projects.
I am trying to pick a goal to focus on each day to distract myself from the other life stuff going on right now.
Anyway, if you follow this blog, you know that each month, I post a prompt for a short story that arrives at some point later in the month. For January, here is the prompt:

Happy reading and writing this month!
