So, I went back and took a look at my old post from the start of 2018 to see what goals I'd set for myself back then, and which of those goals I've either achieved or failed. Fun stuff! 😀 These were the goals I'd written back then: Polish up the final draft of Strayborn … Continue reading Here It Is: My Goals (hopes) For 2019! Plus, a look back.
2018 was a trying year, but in a good way overall. I broke out of my introvert shell more, and now volunteer at a local library, and learned more about myself as both a person and a writer. There were many lessons learned, but here are three you might be interested in. Maybe my mistakes and … Continue reading 3 Things I Learned In 2018
Hello, fellow readers and writers! I hope this spring season has found you well. Here the biting black flies are out, making it difficult to stay outdoors long. But despite that, me and my mother did still manage to plant flowers in the barrel for Mother's Day. 🙂 So here's a quick update through April … Continue reading Update, May
Hey guys! That was a well needed hiatus. In fact, I might have to take another one soon. I finished a lot more revisions on Strayborn, and I even had time to search around and hire an artist to do the book cover! I'm also querying agents for a children's picture book idea I have. … Continue reading Update, and a podcast link
Since it’s the start of a new year, it’s time I look over my writing results for 2017. And from there, tentatively plan what it is I hope to achieve in 2018. You could call this the writer's version of a new year resolution. 🙂 2017 Writing Stats are as follows: 2nd and 3rd drafts … Continue reading Writing In The New year

September for the most part was good and productive. I wrote more and read more than usual, as I could feel the … Continue reading September Into October #MonthlyUpdate
It's about time I did a monthly update, and today I have a lot to share with you about books, food, movies, and writing! Aside from an unexpected trip to SC, which took up most of July, and viewing the Hampton beach sand sculptures, I've been: What I'm Reading Memories Of Ash, the sequel to … Continue reading Life, Books, Movies and Food #monthlyupdate
It's been a while since my last update post! All of those holidays kept getting in the way, you know. 😉 Time to catch you guys up-to-speed on things! I'm still peddling away at the bike, like I'd hoped to do in my 2017 resolutions, and as far as finding new foods goes, I've added … Continue reading Updates and January-February 2017 #writing #reading and #movies!
Fall colors, pumpkin spice and everything nice! Isn't autumn so beautiful? I don't know about you, but I took way too many photos of trees this season! (said photos in this post 😉 ) But besides all of that, there were exciting things that happened this October: I sent out a special e-newsletter announcing (for the first time) … Continue reading October Summary and Leaf Love, 2016 #monthlywrapup #booknerd #authorblog
August, yes, it was a different kind of month. I had a lot of fun near the beginning, going on a road trip out to IL, as you can see in my post about the trip and some photos from the St. Louis Botanical Gardens. But then coming back from that, life became stressful for a while. … Continue reading My August Happenings, 2016 #monthlywrapup #booknerd #authorblog
