Happy New Year, Readers!!
I wish I could say that I ended the year with a bang, like jetting off to Vegas or the Amalfi Coast. Or even spent a relaxing, lazy afternoon in bed with champagne and my guy.
Alas, I didn’t. Mostly, it's a little cray-cray (most of the time) at my house.
Between the beagles and the kids and the hubs, I'm slammed.
But in the New Year, here's what I plan to get after:
10. Like, really, I have to stop using like. Hey, you can't take the wannabe valley girl out of me. Raise your hand if you don't even know what that is!
But even at over 40 years old, my mom still tells me...stop with the like. She says, "Rachel, you're a writer don't you LIKE have a better word?"
9. Keep Ryan Gosling as close as I can on as many days as possible. Very close. Close as in all over my body. Or on my pants and shirts.
Buy something for 7 days a week with Ryan printed all over it.
If you've met me in person, chances are I was wearing Ryan.
8. Binge watch one show. I don't know which one. I try to get into one show per year. I like to watch it in entirety. I miss SOA and Scandal isn’t back on yet.
Any suggestions? It MUST have some love in it. I don't do non-love.
7. Be bold. I wanted to get a tattoo for my 40th, and I didn't. Maybe I will start with a colored streak in my hair? Or do unicorn hair?
6. Write at night. I'm a day writer, but lately, I'm finding myself more creative at night. So make coffee and write into the wee hours.
Or watch TV instead.
5. Sleep in. This goes with writing (staying up) late. I never, ever sleep past 6 a.m. on my own. I'd like to one day sleep in, be lazy, go for mimosas. On a Sunday of course, and then lay in bed all day.
4. Read something paranormal. It's been a long time since I have, and I want to...there's something about shape shifters. They do it for me. Yes, I was addicted to Twilight. I didn't get out of bed for a week. Yep, my robe, me, and lots of coffee and of course, my beagles.
Do you have a suggestion?
3. Hang the book shelves I bought three years ago. They're super fun and hold the books out, so you can see the spine horizontally. Actually, let me add that to my hubby's honey-do list.
2. Drink prohibition cocktails. Why? Because they seem so cool. They have cool names and are even cooler colors.
1. Meet more readers. I have a few signings coming up, and honestly, the most fun is hanging with readers. Maybe drink prohibition cocktails and eat doughnuts, like, you know?
