November Wrap-Up & December Goals

You know how time seems to speed up the older you get? It’s a combination of math and perspective. You’ve lived longer, so a month is a smaller proportion of your life than when you were 8 years old and enjoying endless summer break. Between recovering from my epic adventure in Israel, friends visiting fromContinue reading “November Wrap-Up & December Goals”

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”

August Wrap-Up & September Goals

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”

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”
