May Wrap-Up & June Goals

I started May with all of the plans. Lots of writing while the spouse was away for work. Two conventions. Finally, some warm weather! I got exactly one of those things. Spouse came down with a cough the first weekend, and we discovered by the first Tuesday that both of us finally got the plague.Continue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”

April Wrap-Up & May Goals

Awesome things I did this past month: Doubled my word count from March. Read a ton of ARCs (advance reader copies) by some of my favorite authors. Got together with my best friends. All in all, a pretty successful 30 days! I don’t expect to double my word count again for May, but I’ll beContinue reading “April Wrap-Up & May Goals”

March Wrap-Up & April Goals

I’ll get to my writing progress in a bit, but first I want to talk about reading! (You know, that thing I do instead of writing.) I have two bits of news on that front. On the website: I updated the Book Reviews page so that multiple search options are available. If you know whatContinue reading “March Wrap-Up & April Goals”

February Wrap-Up & March Goals

Remember how we all hoped that 2022 would be more chill than 2020/21? Yeah, that was hilarious. I’m side-eyeing a lot of what’s going on in the world right now, along with some people’s reactions to it. But all I can really do is focus on making the world a better place in my smallContinue reading “February Wrap-Up & March Goals”

January Wrap-Up & February Goals

The highlight of my month is my new coffee machine with milk frother that makes espresso, so that I can make lattes from the comfort of home. It’s cold out, and I severely dislike it (the only perk is lots of kitty snuggles). One of my annual conventions has already been canceled, and I’m expectingContinue reading “January Wrap-Up & February Goals”

December Wrap-Up & January Goals

A week ago, I was reading a romance novel in a private cabana on a tropical beach. This morning it snowed. I hope that’s not a metaphor for how 2022 is going to go. The spouse and I had an amazing cruise vacation for the holidays followed by a few quiet days at home, butContinue reading “December Wrap-Up & January Goals”

November Wrap-Up & December Goals

As 2022 barrels down on us, I can say two things with certainty: 1) I still dislike cold weather; and 2) If the Kindle Unlimited price ever goes up, it’s probably my fault. But good news! In 3 weeks, I’ll be headed to warmer waters (literally) for a much-needed true vacation. And the best partContinue reading “November Wrap-Up & December Goals”

October Wrap-Up & November Goals

I’m writing this on Halloween, my second-favorite holiday of the year, which marks exactly 60 days until New Year’s Eve, which is my favorite holiday of the year. I’m looking forward to dressing up in a bit and helping my mom give out candy at her house. Then, I shall endeavor to get a goodContinue reading “October Wrap-Up & November Goals”

September Wrap-Up & October Goals

Everyone should have a home away from home, and mine is apparently at my friends’ house near Atlanta, Georgia. Which means another road trip in the TARDIS! The spouse and I are down south again for few quiet days before a weekend at a fancy lakeside cabin with friends and board games (and alcohol). IContinue reading “September Wrap-Up & October Goals”

August Wrap-Up & September Goals

The spouse and I spent a good chunk of August on the road, visiting friends in Atlanta and family in Florida. We stayed as safe as possible (even if we were the only ones wearing a mask in many, many gas stations), but had to treat ourselves to a trip to Kennedy Space Center whileContinue reading “August Wrap-Up & September Goals”
