Random Thoughts: New Normal, Planners, Alpha Wolf, and Starlight Bar book 2

I've been in my new home for a week, and I still have boxes everywhere. My office looks like a "landing area" for boxes. I've managed to unpack about a third, but still have a lot to go through.  One of my bookshelves didn't survive the move. It was old and cheap, so I'm not surprised. I need to get a new bookshelf for my office. I'm thinking about a cubby shelf with fabric baskets. I even thought about stacking two of them.
My to buy list for the office has grown to two items.
     1) a desk chair
     2) a bookshelf

With the end of June looming just around the corner, I've been thinking about my quarter goals. I didn't accomplish very many of my second quarter goals. DH's job change and the move took center stage over everything else. It didn't help that this move was tougher both mentally and physically on me than other moves we've made.

But I've noticed a change. Now that I'm in the new place, I'm not as stress as I was living in the staff housing. Even my two kitties are acting a lot calmer.

I'm definitely working on a new normal for my life, my health, and my writing.

Part of that normal is my planner system. I've always used some type of planner or bullet journal. I'm not completely happy with the disc system I've been using. The sad part, is that I have the new 18 month calendars. I just need to figure out how to make it work for me at least for this quarter and then re-evaluate for the last quarter.

I am working on the Starlight Bar series book 2. The amount I get written this week will dictate my release schedule for it.

When I released Alpha Wolf, book 1, I put in in the K Unlimited program.  Toward the end of July, I will be taking it out of the borrow system and releasing through other platforms, including Apple Books.

Book 2 of the series will go into K Unlimited for three months when it is first released. After that, it will also be released on other platforms.
