Energized by Memories

This picture was taken with my Chipmunk a few summers ago, 2013. It was the year of adventure. Earlier that year, she and I lucked up on taking a trip to Universal Studios with a few friends, then we went to California to visit family and Disneyland during a summer trip. Later that year was the IRC - Indie Romance Convention - in Tennessee...which I thoroughly enjoyed and met some wonderful authors and readers.

It was the year I released Frailties of the Bond, Atone, and They All Fall Down (Shadow Jumpers II). Looking back, I'm not sure how I did it all: writing, self-publishing, traveling, social media presence, working full time, being a single mom. Sleep happened in their somewhere lol!

I'm glad for pictures like this one that remind me of what is possible.

Through this and many other memories, I am energized to pick up the pace. I may not return to the beast-mode schedule I was pushing at that time, but I'm feeling it again, that joy from writing a story I really want to share. Especially the one I'm working on. I've got a 10 month deadline according to that grinning cutie in the picture. And I don't want to disappoint her.

Any memories you can recall to energize you? Are you already energized? What do you have going on in your reading and/or writing world?

I remember that photo.
Sometimes we look back and wonder how we made it all happen. Somehow, we did!

Glad this has energized you. I can think of many times I was so busy that I can't believe I accomplished what I did. Good luck with your deadline.

I laughed when I read D put you on a deadline. If you miss it, there will be no cookies for you.

I'm not particularly energized right now because of a recurring problem with my equilibrium. I never know when it's going to hit and when it does, all I can do is stay still so the room doesn't circle so much.

Sounds like a great memory:) My inspiring memories definitely revolve around my kids...although those memories don't always give me energy;)
