As November draws to a close, I am left to wonder what the coming month and new year will bring. I wonder where I will set my sights, on what projects I will work.
There is still the Journal Jar to complete, hopefully by the end of this year. I have been making progress to that end and will continue to aim to do that. My sort of children's book is finished and I have a copy in my hands, in print and binded. I've ordered a couple more to be distributed to the selected few. I might still look into another publishing option, but that is for next year, I believe, at this point. I made my goal of getting the book published to send to the Hatzidakis Family for Christmas, so that is a job well done.
I wonder if I will be compelled to work on my other book projects now that the children's book is done, at least for the moment. I would like to work more on getting the story out and organizing what I've already done into a more, well, organized format. I've got a lot of blog entries, word documents, and some journal entries that can be reworked and compliled into a book of some sort. Don't know if it will be of any interest to a publisher, but I can cross that bridge later. In the meantime, I think it's a project that will garner a lot of my interest in the coming year. Especially if I continue to do as well as I've been doing, healthwise.
There's also Thistle Penn. He's out there, still sending me hints about who he is and how to bring him into this world. I've got lots of scribble and mispelled typing about him throughout my writing experience. A little organizing would do wonders for him and that whole project of a book of fiction. So there is that to look forward to from me as well.
I am also looking to continue efforts to improve my health by eating better and finding a way to get some exercise in my life. And I'll be looking to secure employment in the coming year. A job of some sort to help with expenses of living. We're finding a way to make it work.
There is always more to read. I've got gardening books and projects to work on. I want to make more friends. I would like to clean and organize the garage and office, and my clothing collection. Organize my books. Organize my photos. So much to be organized. Art to be done.
When I'm feeling well, there isn't such a worry about what to do. I can find projects everywhere it seems. It's good feeling healthy. It makes the world more healthy.
Here's to good health.
