I hope everyone had a wonderful break and all holidays were well spent. As I've welcomed in 2018 I've made a small list of goals I would like to complete this year. A few of my goals are too personal to share on my blog, but I can share that I truly do plan to make more character videos about the Cassadine trilogy. I will be talking more about my new story that I'm working on, I may not be able to give a lot of details since it is a work in progress and I do not have my intellectual property clamped down on it, but there are a few themes and personal stories of my own that this particular novel is circled around that I think are important to speak up about. I don't want to hide a lot from people who are supporting me whether you're a family member, a past teacher, a friend, or one of my followers. I pour a lot of my heart into my writing, but part of gaining the trust of my followers is by being honest with them. I never want to compromise who I truly am for the sake of more readers or friends. If I'm going to do this I am going to do it with as much of my truth as I can share. I might not share everything all the time because there are other people involved in the story that is my life and I have to consider their feelings whenever I pick up a pen and paper or log into a new word document, but if there is anything I can share that is safe and appropriate then that is what I intend to do. So I invite anyone who is genuinely curious or anyone who may feel lonely to join in on a year full of writing, dreaming, and growing as an individual.
