What I’m Giving Up For Lent

Okay, this doesn’t have to deal with science-fiction fantasy at all, but I figure since Lent just started this past Wednesday, that I’d do a blog post about it to let all of you know a little bit more about me and what I’m doing as an author.

I’m not Catholic and I’m not giving up anything for religious reasons, I just like to participate in it because it’s nice to change things up every once and a while.

With that being said, here is what I’m giving up for Lent: Writer’s Block

I am making it my personal goal to write for 40 days continuously while my second novel, The Curse of Pirini Lilapa, is copy edited and gets ready for publication. By doing this it will allow me to get further on in the series and make any last minute changes to book 2 if I need to.

Also, here’s another thing that I’m giving up: Laziness

I’ve been contemplating recently about teaching English overseas in Chile for a year after I am done doing my student teaching at Milton High School here in Wisconsin and I am going to thoroughly look more into that option now because I think it would be a great experience for me.

And, finally, the last thing is: Red meat and chicken

I am going Pescatarian for Lent, which pretty much means I’m a vegetarian but I can have seafood and fish. There is more to this part, though, than that. It’s a lifestyle change to hopefully get me back into great shape again so I’ll be going to the gym more routinely, holding myself to higher standards for working out, and just living an overall better and healthier lifestyle.

Is anybody else deciding to give up something for Lent? Let me know. Also, if you would like to pick the genre of fantasy for next month let me know that as well and I can get something put together. Now, I was going to have a review for you by the end of the month and I really was going to read something, but my Kindle broke and I have not managed to get a new one yet. So, I will resume with that review next month if I manage to replace my kindle by then.

Thanks for reading, looking forward to the comments.
