2021 Goals

                                                                2021 GOALS                                                                  


I'm not making resolutions this year. Instead, I will follow the guidance learned in Ninja Writers over the holidays. I have GOALS for the new year, as well as a projected five-year plan for my life.

My goals for 2021:


* Publish two more Church of Go novels: The Day Ted Williams Came to Town is about a newcomer to Ellison whose purpose is to graduate from high school to resume his city life exploits from the previous year. Ted is not aware of the restorative pull of the little town of Ellison. Sam(son) and (De)Lila is the tale of two high school juniors destined to be together regardless of their seemingly different lifestyles.  A fluky summer school assignment teaches Sam and Delila the meaning of family and the importance of faith.
                                                     

 
* Lady With the Cane https://www.ladywiththecane.com/plans to begin writing for an online blog post called Medium. More about that later.
                                                   

   
* It's time to start treating my writing as a business; therefore next week this author is getting serious about uncomfortable stuff like marketing, banking, website construction, and online publishing. Ph, and e-mail lists and newsletter distribution. (Oh, yes, this gal is plumb full of anxiety right about now.)
                                                         

 
* I will be more loyal to my physical health by visiting MS Gym and/or Body Groov Daily Workout online at least every other day.
                                                         
                                                   

  
* Inspired by the teachings of Alexandra Torre and Inkers Con, I am reintroducing my first novels on KDP Amazon for rerelease.
My reading goal is to read 100 books and post reviews on Good Reads in 2021.


So many books; so little time.

But, for today I am letting the MonSter have its time. I ran out of my Walking Drug on New Year's Eve and due to the insurance (from PEIA to Humana) cross-over holiday, I will not receive another order until this Wednesday; therefore, my hands are not functioning as they should, my feet are curled, my mouth is slightly drawn, and I'm just not up to par right now. For any naysayers out there, Ampyra (or it's generic counterpart) DOES work and not just for walking.

Gonna take a break for today.

Have a good one,
Lisa, The Lady with the Cane

BORED? ARE YOU A COUCH POTATO?

                                                                 Bored? Are you a couch potato? If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done. As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).  The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

A new Church of Go novel

If you enjoyed Bombs Bursting in Air ,                                                                                                               I think you'll love the girls in my second Church of Go novel. I've been dragging my feet, literally and figuratively, missing my self-imposed deadline of May 1 for completing second round revisions of my newest book Praise Petals ; therefore I'm taking a little break from blogging until Monday, May 1.  Please accept this preview of the said novel as an apology: THE PRAISE PETALS: A Church of Go Novel                                                                                                      44,068 words CHAPTER ONE Snarky. If a word existed to describe Lilly Jenkins, “snarky” would be a top contender. According to Webster, snarky means “crotchety; snappish; sarcastic and irreverent.” In other words, Lilly. Besides, “snarky” was fun to say. And since there was nothing fun about Lilly, the ir
