Writing takes me away to another place in time. Whenever I need to escape...I write.

Do you write when you do not feel like it?
I would have to say: Yes and No.
The key to completing a writing project is to plan a set time to write each day or week. However, what if you are sick or going through a difficult time in your life? Do you write anyway, regardless of your circumstances?
Well...sometimes I do and sometimes I do not.
I find that if I am feeling icky, as in not feeling 100% in my physical body, I can still write and write well.
I have also found that if I'm REALLY sick, I can not, by any means put the words together to write at all!
In addition, if I have something really heavy weighing on my mind, I have a really hard time writing. If I have minor things on my mind, I have no problem setting them aside to write and sometimes, just sometimes, writing will help me get through the circumstances and I will feel better as a result.
Only you truly know if you are capable of writing according to how you are feeling. What is right for me may not be right for you. You may find that writing will help you feel better no matter what you are going through in your life.
The only way to know for sure is to give it a try!

Getting organized in 2014
I backed up all of my photos and documents from 2013, not in one place, but two. I also organized all of my files.
I completed the online Punctuation class I started AND got an authors page set up for myself on Facebook. Please take a look and "like" it if you will. Author: Deanna Martinez-Bey
I also updated my LinkedIn profile, Twitter profile and started a new website: Deanna Martinez-Bey (which is just in its beginning stages...but started and published nonetheless).
There are several other projects I have been working on and will share once I have completed them.
I guess you can say I have been productive and I do enjoy being that way. Now, to finish my book.......

2014: Make it a productive year!
I feel it is going to be great in every way: productivity, relational, financially, goal setting...a great year to move forward with a new start...leaving the old behind.
OUT with you old! In with the joyous NEW! :)
Speaking of productivity, I completed another online writing course yesterday! I never want to stop learning. I remember a kid, I couldn't wait to be finished with my schooling. I swore I would finish school and never step foot into a classroom again! Now look at me, I choose to take classes...choose to continue to learn new things.
My advice to you: Set goals for yourself. Reasonable goals. Not resolutions, but goals. My goals are not going to be the same as yours and that is OK. Your goals are not going to be the same as your best friends goals or your spouses goals. We are all unique. We all have special gifts. Take a few minutes alone and truly focus on your dreams and write down your goals to make them come true. Do not allow your dreams to stay dreams this year. Make them a reality...take baby steps to bring them to pass. Rome wasn't built in a day!
Think about your goals. Pray about them. Meditate on them. Talk about them. But, be sure to write them down. Then, make a plan to work on them every day or every week.
This is your year! :)
Set reasonable writing goals
