January 6 question - Being a writer, when you're reading someone else's work, what stops you from finishing a book/throws you out of the story/frustrates you the most about other people's books?
I actually haven't DFN many books. I'm either really good at picking books I know I will like or I am very easy to please when it comes to books. Of the ones I haven't finished, it's either because life got in the way and I set it down and just never picked it back up, the story and writing bored me and I lost interest, or it was too predicable and I wasn't in the mood for predicable cliches.
NOW, ON TO MY INSECURITIES.
It's 2021 and I'm both glad 2020 is over and terrified. Who knows what this year will throw at us. Will it be kind? Or make 2020 look like a walk in the park? I'm trying not to dwell on it too much. I can't control how the year plays out.
Instead, I want to focus on what I can control: myself. I have a plan to release two books this year, get my mermaid series edited, and write on two WIPs. The plan is simple. There's not a lot packed in there, but that's on purpose. With my chronic health issues, I have to be flexible. I never know when I'll be knocked out by pain or for how long. By giving myself a simple and easily adjustable plan where I can schedule things ahead of time, I should be able to achieve my goals despite any wrenches thrown at me.

What books have you set aside and why? Do you have a plan for 2021 or are you going to wing it? Would you like to join me in spreading something positive this year?
