As part of that post, I outlined potential streams of income for 2019, and I thought I would update you on how things worked out on the money front in 2019.
Busy Book Nerds: It's Time to Embrace Audiobooks
If someone ever told me I'd be listening to books instead of reading them, I might have given them some serious side eye... until now!
As the end of the year quickly approaches and I prepare to lead Write Your 2019 Into Existence: Seven Day Writing Life Roadmap Challenge for Women and Non-binary Writers, I’m also reflecting on my own 2018 and thinking of the intentions I plan to set for 2019.
