Perfecting My Craft

“And one day the girl with the books became the woman writing them.”

I blogged previously about how, as a child, I always read books and how that fueled my passion for writing. I often had a book with me. I still have a lot of books in my childhood bedroom. Even now, I still read quite a bit. According to Kindle, I read 85 books last year. (My goal for this year is 100 books). So in between writing, I still read a lot.

I had my yearly goal setting session last week. It was eye-opening, to say the least. It was exciting to create a list of things I want to accomplish in 2021. I discovered that my goals for 2021 would be a challenge, but if it wasn’t a challenge, would it be worth it? (The 2020 session is how KOM writes was born). I can say that I not only met but surpassed my writing goals in 2020.

  • With two books. (Hart Signed, Sealed, Delivered, and Hang All The Mistletoe)

  • Five unique book boxes (Hart Box, Mini Hart Box, Sweets Box, Savory Box, and Big Box of Spice)

  • 1 Gratitude Journal

  • 1 Monthly Planner

And oh, the book boxes...that’s another blog post in itself.

Book boxes bring me joy. That is because they combine my love of crafting with writing. I love creating the book boxes as a personal extension of the stories that I write. So, in the meantime, they will continue with the release of each book. And I have to admit that I am proud of my accomplishments, but it also fuels a passion for more. How can I take it to another level in 2021? ( I am working on that).

What I have figured out is that I strive to be a better storyteller. As I write my version of #BlackLove and #Romance I want to improve the process. I am still learning a lot about the publishing process, but I am attempting to perfect my craft. I want to be known as a good storyteller that evokes emotions from my readers.

Part of my legacy will include leaving behind having a passion for writing and telling a good story. I was on the phone with one of my OMGs recently, and she said you “always have a story to tell.”

“I said, yeah. I am a writer.”

Maybe one day, one of my stories can make it to Netflix or Lifetime. (Wishful thinking)

As I work to finish my third book, I keep my goals in the forefront of my mind as I work to accomplish them.

In the meantime, I’m perfecting my craft.
