November Wrap-Up & December Goals

I hope everyone had a fabulous month full of NaNoWriMo and/or delicious food. I’m in the midst of traveling (3 airplanes, 2 conferences, 2 cities), so cross your fingers that the ridiculous cold I had 2 weeks ago doesn’t return with a vengeance. Ironically, because of the traveling and the cold, I did not haveContinue reading “November Wrap-Up & December Goals”

October Wrap-Up & November Goals

Happy half-price candy day! I had to go into the office yesterday, so my costume was really simple. What did you dress up as? It was a fast month, as always, but I got a lot accomplished and I’m gearing up for my version of NaNoWriMo. Instead of writing 50,000 words this month, I’m goingContinue reading “October Wrap-Up & November Goals”

June Wrap-Up & July Goals

I just got home from another fantastic visit to Seton Hill University for the annual In Your Write Mind workshop. I had a blast. I’m exhausted. Let’s do this. In case you missed it, the cover reveal for Steel Shadows (Steel Empires #5) was announced this month! Isn’t it beautiful? Pre-orders are now available, andContinue reading “June Wrap-Up & July Goals”

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 hadContinue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”

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 haveContinue reading “March Wrap-Up & April Goals”

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 anotherContinue reading “February Wrap-Up & March Goals”

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. BecauseContinue reading “January Wrap-Up & February Goals”

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. AsContinue reading “November Wrap-Up & December Goals”

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 readContinue reading “October Wrap-Up & November Goals”

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: Steel Time to the world! But now October has already started, so there’s no time to waste! September Wrap-UpContinue reading “September Wrap-Up & October Goals”
