Retire! It's my greatest dream. I love where I live but I'm looking at cheaper properties so I can give up the 9 to 5 and just write, paint, go fishing and spend time with grandchildren. Where there's a will there's a way - and I certainly have a strong will!
Yes! I would like to have moved for the last time ever, into a bigger house with a huge garden, somewhere out in the countryside.
I would also like to have got my parents' situation sorted out (it's complicated, too long to explain here!) though that might take more than a year.
Oh and an improvement in my health.
Hmmmmm might be being a little too ambitious!
Yes! I want to have my 1st draft of my fantasy novel, Nephelem Journeys finished and ready for editing by about May 2015. I'm 29 chapters in and about half way there. I also want to have my 1st draft of my other paranormal speculative fiction novel, Jackson Grace Chronicles (working title) finished and ready for editing by early January 2015. I have over 20,000 words written in the last three weeks. So I feel like I am on target.
I'd like to self-publish my first novel by mid to late 2015.
I think that's enough for me to focus on while working, writing articles and making jewellery. :)
This is important to me, because I need more stimulation in my work. I have undertaken my current profession over the last eight years. I didn't finish my current profession when I was a youngster and always wondered what might have been had I have finished it. Now that I have completed it and I have achieved as much as I can I am now looking for new adventures. Also with regard to my relationship I had 20 years in a good marriage, divorced 6 years ago and over the last 3 years have had a nice companion by my side but don't feel this person is my lifetime soul mate. Though we do have a lot in common on many levels there are some fundamental things that we both have very different ideas on.
(This is about 12 months later than my previous reply!) Ive would love to be a grandparents for a 3rd time, if & when our youngest daughter ever starts a family! I sincerely hope it's by this time next year! (And yes, we did go on another cruise)
