October Wrap-Up & November Goals

October vanished in a whirlwind of trying to get everything done before leaving for my 10-day trip to Israel, then the vacation itself. Did I get everything done? Of course not. But I had a fantastic time meeting many family members from around the world and checking items off the bucket list, so it wasContinue reading “October Wrap-Up & November Goals”

September Wrap-Up & October Goals

Another month passed in the blink of an eye, and as usual, my ambition outpaced my ability, but I’m still pretty satisfied with how September went. In another of the endless attempts to better wrangle the multiple goals I have every month, I took a cue from a fellow author and started to use theContinue reading “September Wrap-Up & October Goals”

Sorry for the delay with this post — the spouse and I got home very late Sunday night, and the day job is trying to eat me alive this week.

Capclave 2022 Schedule!

Two conventions in a row?! Yes. I’ll be attending Capclave 2022 this upcoming weekend, hosted by the Washington Science Fiction Association! As this convention is local (or at least more local than Utah), I will be commuting from home, not staying at the host hotel. (Also, I think my cats would riot.) But since thisContinue reading “Capclave 2022 Schedule!”

I have no idea how many words I wrote this month on the first draft of Steel Legacy, but I know I wrote the most important two: Trust me, I’m just as shocked as you are. As shown in the picture above, the final total for what is currently a total mess is 120,560 words.Continue reading “August Wrap-Up & September Goals”

July Wrap-Up & August Goals

Before starting this write-up I hit send on my part of a massive freelance project I’ve been working on all summer. One of my favorite aspects of medical editing is knowing that my work has a measurable positive effect on the world. I was thrilled to participate in a small way in making a chapterContinue reading “July Wrap-Up & August Goals”

June Wrap-Up & July Goals

Summer has finally arrived where I live, and I always get a huge boost from the warm weather and sunshine. I spent an even warmer week with friends in Atlanta at the beginning of the month, which was fun and relaxing at the same time. Right now, I’m still riding the high from attending InContinue reading “June Wrap-Up & July Goals”

Con Report: In Your Write Mind 2022

I love all the conferences and conventions that I attend throughout the year (because why else would I spend the money on them), but my absolute favorite is In Your Write Mind.
