Trying Something New

15 Nov

I’ve decided to–as the title of this post suggests–try something new. I’ve done the whole blog thing before, but I never truly enjoyed it so I stopped. It was mostly because I had no idea what to blog about. I streamlined everything, got rid of my regular blog, and–until today–only blogged on my official website, and then only about updates on my books. I still intend to do that for people who want those updates, but I think I’m ready to expand into more personal blogging, too. And now I feel like I have something to say since I’ve been at this whole writing thing for a while–and have started publishing my books.

This has been a year of firsts for me, from buying my first motorcylce to publishing my first book. Problem was, the whole motorcycle thing didn’t work out as good as the book thing.

I had no idea how to ride, and was determined to learn, but I really don’t think I’m coordinated enough. I ended up losing my balance, dropping my beautiful bike, and breaking my foot. Needless to say, I’m content being a passenger–for now.

Here’s a picture of my baby. My husband has named her Bitch, but I’m okay with that. He says she’s a rough ride and beats him up so that’s why she got the name.

Even though I missed out on the latter half of the summer due to my broken foot, I’m glad I tried. Yes, trying something new is sometimes scary–and possibly dangerous–but I’d rather not wonder what if when I look back years from now. Instead, I’ll be laughing at myself for lying there on the pavement in pain, asking my husband, “Is the bike okay?”

As for publishing my first book. Like I said, that went much smoother than the whole bike thing, but I think I’ll save that for my next post.

So has anyone else had any firsts this year to share? Anyone else do something crazy like I did with my motorcycle?

And does anyone know if motorcycles are like cars and referred to as female? Or is that just because it’s usually guys saying it? I thought my bike was a male, but maybe not. I mean, it was between my… Never mind.
