May Wrap-Up & June Goals

StokerCon 2019 table
So many books!

So much reading! So much traveling! So little writing!

Don’t look at me like that. You’re not shocked either.

May Wrap-Up

  • My progress toward Steel Justice this month was super nebulous, but I did figure out where my hang-up was. There is a plan in place toward overcoming it, and I’m cautiously optimistic.
  • I had a fantastic time at StokerCon 2019 with some amazing and lovely horror writers. You can check out my con report of that event.
  • And as usual, this year’s Balticon was also a blast. My con report for that event is also up.
  • I wrapped up the month with an overnight to New York City for the day job, where I can neither confirm nor deny a visit to the Sanctum Sanctorum.

I definitely went here.

June Goals

  • Progress on Steel Justice, which includes some planned writing dates.
  • Attend the annual In Your Write Mind writers workshop at Seton Hill University.

It looks like a light month, but I have lots of other commitments sprinkled in there. It’s a good thing its summertime, because a new Mexican grill opened up in walking distance from my house. I’m excited for writing dates with myself and a large margarita in their lovely outside seating area.
