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”

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”

A Year in Reading: 2021

Hey, remember I was totally shocked by how much I read last year? A whopping 258 books? 2021 was apparently my time to shine. And by shine, I mean completely immerse myself in fictional worlds. How did I pull this off? A few reasons come to mind. My day job finally got rid of itsContinue reading “A Year in Reading: 2021”

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”
