Just a brief update to make sure this blog doesn’t get TOO dusty. I have been super busy with a volunteer job I’ve taken on, as well as my work and family. I can see, looking over the goals I set in January, that I’m meeting some and not even getting close to others.

Rather than a boring recap of which is what, suffice it to say I’m looking at another busy month, and then things will calm down.

I’ve recently picked up an MG novel I set aside last year, and I still like the 10K of words I’ve got so far. Made a date with a writing buddy to meet for coffee in May & trade novels for beta reading!

I renewed my SFWA membership this month and am very excited about the upcoming Nebulas (not that I’m attending, but excited for friends and colleagues).

Here’s to a great February!



2014 Goals

Since I managed to miss the time frame to reflect on the past year (ahem, possibly on purpose?) I decided to announce a few goals for 2014. It’s been very inspiring to read others’ goals so … ta-dah, here are mine!

2014 goals

Be more consistent with the tools I’ve found useful to stay organized and active

Continue improving and producing written work

  • Polish and submit novella (possibly cut to novelette length)
  • Participate in Codex Writers Weekend Warrior
  • Participate in Write1Sub1 monthly challenge
  • Participate in Liberty Hall flash challenges as inspired
  • Revise and submit story inventory

Put more effort into blogging

  • Post at least 12 entries here – one sub goal is to review those tools above that I found useful
  • Blog maintenance – check links and update sidebars
  • Post more on my recipe blog

Enjoy my family, my friends, my home and my city.


Hope your year is productive and healthy, and you’ve set some achievable goals (if that’s your thing!)
