2021...Here we go, again

Well, as you know, 2020 was a heck of a year for everyone. I was not as productive as I wanted to be. The pandemic took me getting used to working from home, like most people. And, I must say, working from home, doing the job I do, is not for me. I work at a middle school, so we had to make some major adjustments fast last March.


While I enjoy writing and proofreading from home, my day job is not aligned for working from home. Too much printing out of items, and I was not going to use all my ink. And even now well into 2021, we're still working from home part of the time.


So, for those of you like me, who had to make some adjustments in work habits, here's to a better 2021 as far as productivity goes. Yet, with the Texas storms we endured in February, my productivity still isn't where I want it to be.


But, I can say, that so far into the year, I have been more productive with my reading. I joined a book club and am having a ball with this group of ladies. They are so fun to be around (yes, even virtually), and already this year I've read four books, so I call that more productive than last year.


What I'm going to begin doing is blogging about the books I'm reading. Some are books I'm reading for fun and to better improve my writing, and others are writing and editing books to improve my skills in those areas.


So, here's to a more productive 2021 (fingers crossed!). We'll see at the end of the year how things went. Best of luck to you all too in whatever endeavors you are working toward.
