Living Write

Hello, February!

Posted on

hello FebFebruary begins at midnight, and you know what that means – all of our New Year’s Resolutions have become distant memories, well beyond our reach.  🙂 This seems like the perfect time to take up new challenges (or refresh old ones) and get motivated once again.

I will be participating in the Women’s Fiction Writers Association “Write-a-Thin” as well as the #AuthorLifeMonth Instagram Challenge. My goal for the WFWA W-a-T is that I finish revising one of my manuscripts, and have it ready to go into my editor’s hands by the end of the month. That’s a big deal, but I feel as though it’s not out of reach. The Instagram Challenge may be a little more difficult for me because I forget to take and post pictures.

To avoid over-sharing, I tend to become reclusive. I’m a natural introvert. A homebody. Give me a book or movie (and coffee or chocolate) and I’m good for hours. I don’t do many selfies. I’d much rather post a picture of my dogs or cats. It’s not that I’m embarrassed about what I look like, I’m just not a great selfie-taker. So this will be a challenge for me, and I sincerely hope that it will not only improve my photo skills but also improve my attitude about it.

So I’m asking for your help in this. I have a list of subjects to use as a guide for the Instagram challenge, but I will need a little encouragement. So if you’re on Instagram please follow me and show me a little love. I promise I will do my best to follow back. My handle is kimblackink and you can click HERE for my Instagram profile. Thanks in advance.
