This is going to be a big year for me. I’m publishing my first book. I’m writing my second book. I’ve got plans to stay on top of this blog and my newsletter and social media too, because it’s time to go all in. 2018 is my year.
Most of all, I don’t want to put things off this year. I don’t want to make choices based on uncertainty and fear. I started the first draft of Rock Star’s Heart ten years ago, and I’ve been finding excuses not to take my shot at this for a decade — but no more of that. It’s time.
My words for 2018 are optimism and courage and joy. I’m going into everything with a positive outlook, believing in the possibilities rather than the pitfalls. I’m still quaking at the giant steps ahead, but I’m not letting that stop me this year. I’m setting out to find moments of joy everywhere I can.
I’m listening to “Could Have Been Me” by The Struts. If you don’t know it, check it out (the song itself starts around 1:20, if you don’t want to watch the mini-film intro). The video has rock stars, and the kind of glamour and decadence I’ve tried to capture in Rock Star’s Heart. The song itself has lyrics that speak to me, about not living as an “untold story” or having to look back with regret on things not attempted.
Let’s have an amazing year together! If you want to be part of my adventure, I’ve got a lovely group of Sweethearts you can join on Facebook (my street team and social group) and you can also sign up for my newsletter. (And if you’re already there, thank you!)
Happy New Year!
