Hello! Welcome to Monday Morning Coffee and Chat! Today I’m talking about daily social distancing and this week’s spring break holiday.
This past weekend, I was the keynote speaker at the Capital Christian Writers Self Publishing Conference in the Washington, D.C., area. From Kentucky, it’s a long drive for me to go to that area of the country; however, my parents are a good halfway spot so I was able to stop and spend the night with them coming and going.
For the last eighteen months, I have traveled the world, speaking and teaching on writing, writing style, and indie publishing to over 20 groups. It has been wonderful and exhausting. Just from September through November, I went back and forth from Kentucky to first Oregon, then Hawaii, then Australia, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.
As wonderful as it has been to speak to other Christian authors all over the world, I only published two books in 2016 — hardly my normal output. During 2017, I have a fraction of the teaching time scheduled, and have turned down several requests for my presence at conferences and workshops, choosing instead to get a handle back on my production schedule and get some more books published!
As I unpacked my suitcase last night, I realized that the next time I’ll need it for business will be March — and the next time after that will be September! What a difference it will make to my life to be home consistently and constantly.
And now, to work with me. I have a book that I have prayerfully scheduled to release in March — and I am only four chapters into writing it.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
You would bless me if you added me to your feed reader or subscribed via email.
