May Wrap-Up & June Goals

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 […]

April Wrap-Up & May Goals

I definitely had a productive month, just not in the way I originally thought. I also got to see some great friends and read some great books, so no complaints here. I’m in the middle of reading some pretty awesome book series that I’m alternating with each other, which just makes me want to read […]

March Wrap-Up & April Goals

I’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 […]

February Wrap-Up & March Goals

Ack, where did February go? I guess this is what happens when I try to reduce my workload but still end up ridiculously busy. The good news is that I got a lot of stuff done. The bad news is that I still didn’t manage to complete all my goals. Oh well, March is another […]

January Wrap-Up & February Goals

Okay, kids. Something isn’t working, and I’m pretty sure I know what it is. I have reached that point where I have so much to do that I’m getting overwhelmed and not doing any of it (as evidenced by the 11 books I read this month). Time to re-evaluate and change a few tactics. Because […]

December Wrap-Up & January Goals

Another year, come and gone. As with any year, I’ve had some major successes and minor disappointments. On the writing front, the success was my fourth book published, which means that my series is officially over halfway complete. The fifth book is also in the midst of the publication process. Unfortunately, on the disappointment side, […]

November Wrap-Up & December Goals

This month, it feels like I wrote all the words, read all the books, and went to all the conventions. Okay, it’s actually about 32k words, 15 novels, 8 short stories, 3 graphic novels, and 2 conventions. Still a hell of a month. Obviously, that 32k words means that I did NOT “win” NaNoWriMo. As […]

October Wrap-Up & November Goals

Another month has flown by in a fun and bewildering blur! I’m writing this post on Halloween, and my biggest dilemma right now is figuring out what to wear while I hand out candy tonight. Oh, and write two thousand words so that I can kick off NaNoWriMo at an even 10k. Yep, you read […]

September Wrap-Up & October Goals

How is it almost the end of the year? What happened? Where have I been? Writing and reading and traveling, for the most part. Oh yeah, and I published my fourth book. Welcome Steel Empires Book 4:┬áSteel Time to the world! But now October has already started, so there’s no time to waste! September Wrap-Up […]

August Wrap-Up & September Goals

I didn’t travel anywhere this month, but I still managed to have plenty of adventures! The highlights of the month were definitely the cover reveal for my next book, Steel Time, and buying the very first new car for either of us with my husband, a Tesla Model 3! Other fun things included some home […]
