It has begun. The beginning of the end.
The end of the year, that is.
For most people, this is the time of year where they want to be with their family and their friends, and they want to be sociable.
I want to take a box of books, some writing paper and pens, and a ration of food, and I want to go into a “seclusion” within my own home.
But, alas, as a now-single mother of four younger children, I cannot. Besides, it is expected of me to be at the family gatherings, at least.
I released The Daily Prompt 2017: December digital edition on November 21st.
Don’t panic if you think you missed the announcement. I never sent it.
I know. Bad, bad me. It was the last day before the children got out of school for five whole days, and I had to double-check and make sure I was ready for them to eat me out of house and home for five straight days. Yes, I spent the majority of that Tuesday at the grocery store, spending money I didn’t have to spend on food.
They go back to school tomorrow, and it looks like a swarm of locusts attacked my pantry.
Moving right along…
On November 28th, I will be releasing The Daily Prompt 2017: December Workbook.
This is my very last workbook. I made the announcement several weeks ago (whenever the last time was that I posted an update) that I was going to be discontinuing the workbooks simply because no one besides myself had purchased any. No one complained about my announcement, so I will continue through with my decision.
Other Things Worth Mentioning (sorta…)
I’m also deliberating on changing up the way I publish my prompt series again. This year was a flop when it came to sells. It was a bad year, all around.
So, in December, prepare yourself for a bit of chaos when it comes to my publications. I will be releasing The Daily Prompt 2017 full year set, the paperback for the same year, and I am thinking about doing away with the monthly installments and going back to a yearly publication only, so The Daily Prompt 2018 and its paperback edition will be coming out in December as well.
I also think there is another quarterly box set for 2017 scheduled for release in December as well.
Chaos, chaos, chaos…everywhere.
And on that note, it’s Sunday, three-quarters of my children are off with their grandparents, so I am going to go write while I have something that resembles peace and quiet happening here in the home.
