I Want to Write More

Happy Sunday, Readers! As I promised Future Me, this year I am going to regularly review my goals for 2022 and to adjust them as needed. As I was going through them this month, I discovered that I had nearly done myself a bit of an ill turn. One of my goals this year was …

To Do Journal

Happy Sunday Everyone! OK it is starting to become apparent that if I don’t actively keep up on what is going on from day-to-day, I will quickly lose track of time to the point where even remembering the day take more effort than it used to. I get that things aren’t exactly back to normal …

Consistency is key

Happy Sunday Everyone! I hope you and yours are all safe and well. Quick post (and a late post, I confess) today since I’m caught up in the throes of Virtual Balticon. Of the various panels and the myriad topics being discussed today, all of the ones that I’ve been on (or attended) so far …

Get Real

For those of you that don’t know me, this time of year is one of two times during the year where I drift pretty heavily into an introspective mood – the other time is my Birthday (which is in July, so they’re nicely spaced apart). Here we are NaNoWriMo has passed, and the New Year …

Giving Back

Coming into this weekend, the last one of November, I thought I’d covered all of the aspects of my career plan. If you’re interested in reading the series, you can find them here: Part 1: Not as easy as it looks. Part 2: Next Steps. Part 3: Tooting your own horn. This afternoon, the day …

To recap briefly, I’ve got my Mission statement: I want to be able to maintain, or improve my current lifestyle through telling stories. And I’ve got the first steps to achieving that plan: Write …

The Next Step

Welcome to the second installment of my November career planning series. Last week, I finalized my mission statement, which is: I want to be able to maintain, or improve my current lifestyle through telling stories. I also talked about one of the steps I need to take to get there: Write regularly. Again, this doesn’t …

Plans Within Plans

I need a plan. I suspect that you probably need one too. For the longest time, I’d been so focused on writing stories that – to my embarrassment – I’d neglected to do any long-term thinking about what comes next. To date, the majority of my goals concerning my authorial career can be summed up …

Focused Work

With as much as I’ve got on my plate these days, I’m always looking for ways to get more done, quicker, etc. Sometimes, under certain circumstances, I am tempted down dark paths. I’m talking about Multitasking. You know what I’m talking about: You do a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and …
