March Wrap-Up & April Goals

backpack pins March 2019I’m feeling pretty positive about how this month turned out, even if (as usual, these days) I did not accomplish all my goals. I did get to spend lots of time with awesome people and read cool books, which also have to be priorities in life. A person cannot always “exhale” productivity; sometimes you have to breath in life to replenish the reservoir.

March Wrap-Up

  • The final copy-edit of Steel Shadows was completed and returned to my editor for layout! I’m so excited about this book. I say this about every project, but this one is completely different from anything I’ve written before.
  • I only wrote about 10k words for Steel Justice rather than 20k, but I did get to the scenes for the grand finale and figured out that I need to seriously beef up a subplot.
  • I had a great time at Cleveland Concoction at the beginning of the month! You can check out my full con report here.
  • I also had a fabulous weekend at Bethany Beach with a bunch of romance writer friends and a successful day job trip to Providence, Rhode Island, for an editing conference. I love how my network of writer friends is so expansive that I got to spend quality time with lovely ladies during each trip: Cara McKinnon and K. Parr.

April Goals

  1. Write the back cover blurb for Steel Shadows.
  2. Make progress on Steel Justice. What does that mean? I don’t even know anymore. We can all be surprised.
  3. Catch up on book reviews! I’m currently almost 10 reviews behind, because I’ve been reading faster than I spend time at my computer.
  4. My travel this month includes a quick weekend trip to Atlanta, Georgia, for a good friend’s wedding.
  5. I’ll also be spending a few days in Washington DC for a very cool healthcare conference on behalf of the day job.

What are you up to this month? I’m definitely excited for warmer weather. I have too many adorable geeky t-shirts to hide them under sweaters.
