Happy New Year 2023!
Happy IWSG Day!!
January 4 question
Do you have a word of the year? Is there one word that sums up what you need to work on or change in the coming year?
For instance, in 2021 my word of the year was Finish. I was determined to finish my first draft by the end of the year. In 2022, my word of the year is Ease. I want to get my process, systems, finances, and routines where life flows with ease and less chaos. What is your word for 2023? Why?

Joy and happiness are not the same feelings. People can see happiness in you through your expressions and body language. But joy is inside you, the core of your being. According to compassion.com," joy endures hardship and trials and connects with meaning and purpose."
I want to carry joy in my heart and in my writing this year even when the book project seems unmanageable or overwhelming. I read through the pages and shake my head. I can only sit back and ask " why did I ever think I could create this book?" Have you experienced the feeling of absolute frustration and helplessness with your writing?
This year, I will happily put the ms away for a while! Then I will joyfully attack it and figure out the solution with meaning and purpose.
Wishing you a successful year in your writing journey
and in finding joy within your pages!
