    I love the idea of visualizing and writing my goals as achievements I’ve already accomplished! Good luck to you with those goals, and with the Grumpy series.

    Your confidence and self-belief shines through and inspires me, Juneta. Visualisation is a technique I need to adopt. So far, I’ve only used it as a technique my heroine used in my debut novel.

      LOL, thank you, what a lovely thing to say. But I have to admit… ah confident, not so much just trying to loop those thoughts in my head in a positive way so I do become that. I am a firm believer that the thoughts that dominant reflect in our reality because it influences our choices or lack of choice. So working on that.

      Two of fave quotes:
      “It is well, however, to remember that while every effect is the result of a cause, the effect, in turn, becomes a cause, which creates other effects, which in turn create still other causes; so that when you put the law of attraction into operation you must remember that you are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise which may have endless possibilities.” ~Charles Haanel

      “As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
      ― Wilfred Arlan Peterson

    We all need a dream, something to aim for but the visualisation idea sounds good. Best wishes

    LOVE this post, Juneta! Visualization is something I’m going to use to get my writing self (and personal self) back on track after a rather disastrous year. Dream it, do it.

      I try to use that, single affirmations, and mediation. I have fallen out of the habit, but going to try to get back to it.

    Your blog post is such a delight to read and chock a block with information. Firstly I love your positively phrased vision of your writerly future. Secondly – I’m rushing over to the Advent story a day. Thanks for your visit to my blog!
    Happy Holidays.

    I love the “location independent” idea. We really all can be that way today–computer and an internet connection and viola! Here’s to making that dream come true–all of it.

    I like much of your dream (who wouldn’t want to be a NYT best-seller?) but the 1000-5000 words per day–that would be heaven. Sigh.

      Thank you. I wish I was closer to that image but I am still working my way there. That would be heaven to me. I don’t always write, write daily and sometimes no more than 250 to 300 words. I have written 1000 to 3000 before and on a really good day 5000, so that was why included those numbers.

    You not only dream big but also are visualizing long hours of working when necessary. I admire that. I think many of us would love some of your dreams too.

      It was. Thank you. We are trying. We may slow down a bit after V6 or V7 because we really need more time but we set this goal for 7 and we wanted to at least say we did it. We need to work some kicks out our system and improve it. We are getting there.

    You have a much better dream plan than I do. Mine is more like a culmination of my lazy nature. I forgot to add so much this month, but that’s pretty much par for the course. Yours is the go-to place for IWSG news.

      Only because that course made me sit down and think about it to meet the assignment requirements, but I am glad I did it.

      Thank you.

      Thank you. That was the point of the assignment to really make you think when I did this. I need to get back to some techniques I learned that helps that I have allowed to fall to the wayside.
