This year is coming to an end. I attended my last author's signing on Saturday in Collinsville Illinois, ending my year on a high note. Sold six book during the event. A great way to end the season.
I enjoy the signing at the Collinsville Library. I see friends there twice a year and catch up on everyone writing progress. This is a very active artist and authors event as people from surrounding communities come it to shop.
As 2018 comes to an end, I have my goals set for next year. Spirit Dagger a short story I am converting in to a novel is coming along. It currently sits at around 21,000 words with a goal of 40,000 when finished. I have added a great deal of depth to the characters and hope to start the editing process after the first of the year.
Even though Christmas is not my favorite holiday, I am ready for it to arrive. I have two gifts left to buy, everything is sorted by families. I should have the boxes ready to mail by next week and the remaining local gifts finished a few days after that. I am currently working on Christmas cards and should have them mailed by Friday.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday, filled with love from friends and family. Make memories that you can use as the beginnings of many stories next year.
