To be blessed in being multi-passionate is to be cursed as well. Point and case, I have one proposal and a novel to edit and put out in the world, and I’m now distracted about creating a series of courses. Shiny object syndrome is my life and I really hate it on the best of days. That said, I have some brilliant new ideas flooding me for new Regency era romances to write. For now, though, those ideas will remain in an idea file until I’m ready.
So what the means for the present is that my novel proposal and novella are still the priority. Here’s to hoping they’re both done by month’s end. At least that is my re-evaluated target date.
I’ve also been working on rebranding my businesses and aligning them to who my target audiences are. It’s an intriguing thing when trying to figure out target market in the e-Commerce space. If that’s not insane enough, I’ve been helping my husband out with his business too.
Life has been decidedly busy these last few months, but busy is good and I am not complaining. Busy is keeping me distracted from the stresses that are beyond my control. Busy is helping identify the things that are important to my life and what I am perfectly fine in doing without.
Life has been doling out some less than stellar moments, and I’m not ashamed to say I’ve been doing a lot more crying lately. With so much going on in the world, it’s difficult to separate the good from the bad, but the crying is a suitable form of release. Whether it’s tearing up during meditation, or in solitude when I’m feeling angst, the emotion needs to come out.
Life during a global pandemic is challenging, but I am full of gratitude to still be alive while so many never stood a chance.
Now lets move onto more cheerful things, shall we?
Which brings me to the actual reason of this post. To identify the content, you’d like to read on my blog and social platforms, I am welcoming you to leave me a comment on this post on what sort of future topics would you like me to post about. They can be crafty DIY, to a YouTube tutorial on any subject you like. If you want to see videos, or a post of me manufacturing a demo/test cosmetic or personal care product, I am down with that too. Be sure to leave me a comment, or hit me up in my contact form on this site.
I will share two excerpts of books I am working on this Friday in my newsletter. I haven’t decided from which books they’ll be from, but one will be Regency and the other is a paranormal romance. If you’re not already a subscriber to my newsletter, you can sign up for it here: https://www.subscribepage.com/LaynaPimentel
It’s my hope to keep you all engaged in whatever I content I can deliver, if you’ll welcome me to your inboxes. I do plan on offering digital swag (computer wallpapers, phone wallpapers, journal pages, digital art) soon, but I will share more on that in the next couple of months. The cost of postage everywhere has inflated astronomically that mailing any kind of swag is difficult when you’re barely making ends meet. So digital swag it is.
Anyway, that’s it for today. I hope this post finds you all well and healthy, and I can’t wait to share those excerpts with you all later this week.
Much love and gratitude,
