It’s March Already!

Okay! I blinked, and February was gone. That being said I’ve achieved some of my goals. Some goals will take longer than I expected. Some goals have been changed. What will definetely happen this month? I will write. I will summit my work. I will run a 10K and it’s my birthday month, so I will also party! Life is good and determination is my middle name. I just updated this page from my cellphone.

Wellcome to February!

It’s the month of love or massacre’s or both if you choose (depends on what you write or read). Valentines day is just around the corner and many will gear up for the annual love fest. Some of which will be quite sweet or excessive depending on who’s doing what. However you choose to celebrate it or not, remembering to tell your loved one, no matter what the day that you do indeed love them is all ways a positive thing.

Which brings me to this; if January was a slow month for you. If you feel like you didn’t achieve any of your goals. If you are feeling particularly unloved. Remember this, it’s never too late to start and to get love you have to give love and love yourself first.

It’s New Year!

I’m taking the song “Feeling Good” as my mantra for this year.

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good
I’m feeling good

Exciting things are happening for me I’m presenting  my first Goal Setting Workshop: Creating your five year plan and sticking to it, this Saturday, January12, 2012. 2012 was on on year for some people, including me. So if you hear me humming a few bars of “Feeling Good” feel free to join in.

November 2012

This month is National Write a Novel Month. While I will not be participating in the traditional sense of  writing 50,000 words in 30days. I will be editing at least 9 pages a day 5 days a week to get my submissions from Moonlight & Magnolias this year out. That way I can actually finish my novella before the year is out and submit it.

To everyone who has joined the madness, You can do it! To everyone who is thinking about it At the very least try! You might just be suprised at how much you accomplish.

July 2012

I’m finally on a roll!

I’ve been writing steadily for the past six months and so far I’m on target to meet all my goals for the year. Unfortunately I won’t be headed to RWA Nationals this year but I will be back in Georgia to meet up with the ladies from Georgia Romance Writers come October.

See you soon!


August 2010 News

Hi! I’m back from RWA Nationals. That means it’s back to the grindstone. The Kidlets are gearing up for school and so am I. I’m polishing my manuscript and will send it off soon. Which means I’ll be ready to work on another project while I wait on news from Query Hell.

Next on my list of things to do: attend my local chapter meeting CFRWA. Karen Rose will be speaking. I’m looking forward to hearing what she has to say.
