Since the clock ticked over to 12:01 AM on January 1, I've been mulling over the past year. What I've accomplished (personally and professionally), what I've failed at. What I did a great job of, and most importantly, what I could do better in the new year.
2016 will be a great year. I won't have it any other way. Sure, it will be a long road, and probably mostly uphill. I'm just going to consider this steep climb as exercise. (A goal for 2016 but we'll get to that in a bit.)
I'm going to work on balancing life with work in 2016. I work from my home, so it's tough some days to separate the two. And as a writer, many times my real life family takes a back seat to my fictional character family. To find this balance, I'm going to TRY to stop working by 4:30 in the afternoon. No WIP, no social media, no promotional work. I will schedule my days as if I left my house each morning, and then returned eight hours later. Office hours will be a priority for me.
