Hello, welcome to Renée Loves Words! I’m so excited to be launching my new website and especially to be sharing it with all of you.
This site is a hodge-podge of all the things I love to do, from helping authors catch the eyes of potential readers to crafting to writing, and I hope we’re able to connect through any and all of them!
This blog is going to be a little bit more personal. I’d love to share the process of designing some of my projects and the many ways I procrastinate finally starting that book I’m always saying I want to write, but I’d also like to share the adventures I go on and the random thoughts floating around in my brain. Feel free to skip to the things that interest you! I’ll make sure to tag the posts to make it easy.
I have a lot of goals for this year, both in relation to this site and outside of it, and I thought I’d share them with you to keep myself accountable. Here goes:
GOALS FOR THIS SITE
I’ve really missed designing the past few years and have decided I need to take it back up. I’ve added some new services and lowered my prices to make it affordable for authors who I know are generally on a tight budget when it comes to promotion. I hope to keep up with promoting my services and making new contacts to help as many writers as I can to put their best face forward and reach new readers.
Writing is something I’ve always been interested in but never really taken the time to do. I hope to change that in 2018 with a goal of writing the rough draft of a novel before the end of the year. I’d also like to dabble in short stories and see if I can get at least one published.
As a part of my taking-care-of-myself goal, I want to work toward getting healthier. I know that exercise is good for managing anxiety, so I’d like to be more active. My general goal is to get moving more, whether that be going on a hike or walking around Boston.
In any free time I have left (HA!) I’d love to work on learning a second language, read 40+ books in the year, and learn to cook so I can eat more healthily (and stop spending money eating out because I can currently only make like five things).
If you decide to follow me on this journey, those are the things you get to look forward to! What are your 2018 goals? Is there anything else you’d like to see on my site or blog? Let me know below, and happy new year!
