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.

May Wrap-Up & June Goals

I started May with all of the plans. Lots of writing while the spouse was away for work. Two conventions. Finally, some warm weather! I got exactly one of those things. Spouse came down with a cough the first weekend, and we discovered by the first Tuesday that both of us finally got the plague.Continue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”

StokerCon 2022 Schedule [redacted]

Yesterday, I was super excited to tell you all about my upcoming trip to Denver for StokerCon! What you didn’t know, if you don’t follow me on social media, is that the spouse and I both finally caught COVID last week. We’re both vaccinated and boosted, but since the spouse is military, it was literallyContinue reading “StokerCon 2022 Schedule [redacted]”

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”

Looking for the full slide set for my “Alternate History: Creating Stories by Changing the Past” presentation? See below! Usually I try to have my convention reports posted on the Wednesday after the con, but this month I had the crazy idea that I could do two events in a row. So because I traveledContinue reading “Con Report: Starbase Indy 2019”
