May Wrap-Up & June Goals

I did so well in May! I wrote! I read! I adventured! Not as much of all of those as I would have preferred, especially since the day job ate me for the solid week before I left on my vacation at the end of the month, but I suppose we can’t have it all.Continue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”

April Wrap-Up & May Goals

In the spirit of full transparency, I rode the struggle bus for the first half of April, without much productivity other than keeping up with reading ARCs and writing book reviews. Then, the spouse and I spent a lovely long weekend with our besties down in Atlanta to join them for their local Renaissance FaireContinue reading “April Wrap-Up & May Goals”

March Wrap-Up & April Goals

I had grand plans for last month, but got caught up in the intersection of physical and mental health issues that reduced my productivity output to a few book reviews and way too much time playing World of Warcraft. It’s more than a bit frustrating, but I’m trying to be gentle with myself. I didn’tContinue reading “March Wrap-Up & April Goals”

Holiday Letter 2022

Welcome to my final* post of 2022! The blog will be quiet for the rest of the year because the spouse and I are once again hitting the high seas for a tropical holiday cruise with my extended family. We’re spending Christmas zip-lining in Honduras, and we’ll return to Maryland in time to spend NewContinue reading “Holiday Letter 2022”

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”
