We can all ask, “Where did it go?”, but I think most of us who live in the north know summer passed in the usual form: too quickly. What started out to be a very cool June with snow and hail in Nova Scotia, eventually evolved into hot July and August days.
With cooler nights and mild days on the horizon, school started today where I live. That means the house is empty because everyone is either in school or at work. This is the first time I’ve had the house to myself during the day for more than two months.
While I hope you enjoyed your summer and I’d like to reminisce about mine, as John Wayne said, “We’re burning daylight.” So it’s time to buckle down and get back to work full time. My batteries are recharged, new ideas are splashing around in my mind, and I’m ready to start the next phase of my self-publishing journey.
Over the past two weeks, I’ve developed a 90-day plan that forces me to focus on finishing up unfinished projects, completing the next book in my Castle Keepers epic fantasy series (Revelation Stones) and organising my marketing strategies to give my books the extra push they need.
September has always felt like a new year, a new beginning and a chance to take on new adventures. Now that my days are mine again, I have the next ten months to work my business like never before. I think it’s going to be a fabulous time.
Does September feel like a fresh start to you? Do you plan your schedule by the month, 90 days or year?
