    2019 Intention: Brick by Brick

    Phew, this blog is dusty!  It is one of those things that has fallen by the wayside this year after I finally came to terms that I am not, in fact, superhuman **disappointed grumble**.   My intention for the past year was FOCUS, and with a few exceptions that I’m going to chalk-up to very needed and well-deserved breaks, I’ve done exactly that. I finished another book!  I met my GR reading challenge goal, and I’ve also zeroed in on my brand (exciting things coming in 2019!) and overall vision for this endeavor. Staying focused was sometimes very hard when life would blow up or work would be a nonstop day…

    (Belated) Summer Writing Update

    It’s still technically summer, right?  Sort of?  As my friend Lenny says, it’s been a minute since I posted over here.  It was a very eventful summer! I finished the draft and am on to revisions of Veil of Thorns!  I actually finished the book in June, but then I found out we had to either buy our house or move, and a mad dash to make that happen ensued.  We bought the house! It just closed on September 1st, and now I can breathe a sigh of relief (that I don’t have to move) and focus on getting this book polished and out to readers.  It will be off…

Now let’s dig right in to this Writing Wednesday post!
