Howdy! I never got around to doing a 2017 recap. But here's basically how my 2017 writing year went. Over my Christmas break, I sat down and outlined my 2018 writing goals. Which seem fairly lofty at this moment, given that I'm already behind on my Jan word count.... BUT, my oldest sister is … Continue reading Jumping In To A New Year

Howdy! I know it's only been two weeks since I posted last, but I feel like it's been a lot longer. Also life has been crazy, so that's why I went with plums instead of lemons, because it hasn't actually been bad, I've just been a permanently exhausted pigeon with too many things to do … Continue reading When Life Hands You Plums
Howdy! It's been a quick few weeks. I don't want to say "rough", more just tiring. Work has been really busy. I'm gradually getting into the swing of things there. I've halfway started to work out again. I finally got The Rise of Aredor books relaunched. I finished a novella. I got my edits back for The … Continue reading Time To Be Real.

My family had planned a two week trip out to Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee and I decided kind of last minute that I'd … Continue reading Vacation, Jobs, & Fairy Tales

Howdy! So I missed my usual Thursday post because I kind of forgot it was Thursday and I'm pretty sure I missed a day somewhere this week. And I spent all of yesterday afternoon updating the website! (What do you think of the new look?) The lovely Deborah O'Carroll tagged me for the Life Lessons … Continue reading Life Lessons Learned From Fantasy Tag!
Howdy! I'm back on clinical rotation and I'm learning tons. Not the least of which is patience and how important it is. My clinical setting is a skilled nursing facility where patients have come in from the hospital and aren't ready to go home yet. I was working with a patient the other day who … Continue reading Staying Patient In A Fast World
