Tag Archives: monthly affirmations


Just because we are at the end of the year does not mean that I have completed my total life makeover, however, because we are at the end of the year, we are going to look back over the past year and look at the affirmations that I have created and look at how I have changed during that time.
Lets look back and see where I am with each affirmation that I developed over the past year.
The first four months were centered on improving my life personally. I worked on changes that changed me on a personal level.
The second four months related to me changing as it related to my relationship with business. This also occurred on a personal level, but it related to how I dealt with business issues.

Affirmation for December

During these last four months of the year, I focused on building my business I took September and October to work on a business plan, and in November I wrote the first draft on another novel (product creation) Which brings us to December, the last month of the year.
This month’s Affirmation is: I am Forward Thinking. In some ways this takes me full circle, because I plan to write affirmations all over again next year. As the year cycles from winter into spring, into summer, into autumn, and back to winter, I cycled through them as well. As it says in Ecclesiastes “to everything there is a season and to every purpose under Heaven.” In my business, I am also learning to move with the seasons. Right now we are in the Christmas season and over the past several months I have been building my business and taken advantage of that season. Now that the holiday shopping is in full swing, that season of preparedness is over. I have one more event planned for next Saturday and then I will be devoting my time in working on next year and the goals that I intend to fulfill during the next 366 days.

NaNoWriMo has become a tradition for me. For the past five years I have won NaNoWriMo every year and I intend to make this year number seven.
NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. It is a challenge actually and the challenge is to write a fifty thousand word first draft in thirty days. The object is to write straight through without stopping until you reach the 50 K. No editing. No stopping. Just write write write until you are done.
I started yesterday on the first draft. I have written for today already as well. So far I have (how many) words written. I am off to a great start.
Am Prepared to Write First Draft
I have a confession to make. Because I write historical Christian romantic fiction, I don’t actually start working on the novel on the first of November. Instead, I begin my character sketches, my book outline, and do my research well in advance of the event. This gives me the foundation in order to quickly write the first draft of the novel during the month.
