As far as my writing and blogging are concerned, 2022 was a disaster. I tried to get my blog rolling again with some posts about classic rock albums on the anniversary of their releases. However, once the news came about orders back to the U.S., everything changed. We knew in May that the orders were coming soon. Let the hectic pandemonium begin.
For some perspective, the orders came in June, we arrived in the U.S. on July 22nd,
our cats arrived on November 9th
The United States Air Force has moved us many times, and I must say, this one was poorly executed. Not only in terms of timing, but damaged and lost goods. Phew, it’s all over now. Although I could not partake in NaNoWriMo in 2022 due to the complexities of setting up a new household. I did manage to contact other local authors. Hopefully I’ll be back in the swing of things in the coming year. But I’m not going to set some unrealistic goals.
The Holidays have come and gone quite smoothly. Although there are many projects for me to tackle around the house, I can say with some conviction, that life has settled back into normalcy.
As for 2023, let the chips fall where they may. I will have the time to write, edit and blog, but the question is how much time will I have?
What are your writing/reading/traveling/life plans for 2023?

Happy your home in the US! In a blink, another year flew by and the passion of the gifted settled for next week, that never came. The pandemic is over, that never was. The whole world being held hostage, broke many and taught a lot. 2023? What dreams did you envision as a child, fearing to task. Taking a chance on me and all the wonders life has to offer. Like Dorethy in the wizard of OZ it was there all along she just didn’t know it! So, write, design, cook, draw, create, play, build, dance, laugh, love…..
Found a writers group, designing a spray booth, cooking almost every day, picking up my guitars again, building model kits, playing with my boys, house projects, and more.
I think my plate is filled with all the activities you mentioned.
Glad you are now settled. How dreadful for your poor cats, though. And you, worrying about them for so long.
I’ll be looking forward to reading more of your posts in 2023.
One thing I’ve committed myself to this year, and I don’t know if I’ll manage it, is to write a poem a day. I hope to publish it in time for Christmas this year. (I started it in mid December.)
I also want to publish Book 4 in my Wolves of Vimar series. It’s going through the critique stage at the moment. I also want to finish 2 other works and start a third. Quite a lot of ambition there.
Book IV, poems, 2 others works and starting a third! Wow, sounds like you’re going to need some 36 hour days.
Trust me, I’m rooting for you. Would like to hear about your accomplishments throughout the year.

Put like that it does sound a bit overwhelming! So far, the poems are on track, and book 4 is actually finished. Just the critique suggestions to consider. Did I say ‘just’ there?
