How was everyone’s summer? Ready for back to school?
It’s been four months since my last tri-annual report. So how far have I come since April 2017? Hhmmm… I’m not the best judge of character since I’m leaning towards not much. What do you say?
Here’s what I’ve been able to accomplish and or fall by the wayside the past four months.
- Still awaiting notification from Feminine Collective magazine about the four poems I sent in June. Sent a submission status query and keeping fingers crossed.
I’m writing this post to say my sorta-goodbye. I say sorta, because I’ll still be posting for IWSG, the first Wednesday of the month. So at least the blog won’t have too many tumbleweeds going by.
I’ll be using my break until I return to my regularly blogging schedule to do several things (and not in this order). Here’s what I’ll be up to the next four months and why:
1. Review and revamp my 2017 writing goals
Whether you’re on plan it doesn’t hurt to review your original goals. Sometimes life happens or maybe you’ve changed your mind about a writing project or two. Remember, nothing is set in stone. Continue reading
At the end of 2016, I came up with some 2017 writing goals. So where am I at on these goals? Well, let’s see.

In 2015 I’d created a writing plan for 2016 that went against my nature, the nature of being a slow writer. In some ways it did work.
I started revising my NaNoWriMo 2015 novels Dreaming of You and The Soul Traveler. Had another successful National Poetry Month. And my first blog tour for my poetry chapbook Can You Catch My Flow? Finally took my mythic fantasy work in progress, Harbingers of El Tinor, off of hiatus for NaNoWriMo 2016.
Yet my ultimate goal for 2017 is to finally add the greatest words in the dictionary at the end of my work in progress. “The End.” And with 2016 nearing it’s end, it’s safe to say that segmenting the year in quarters for my WIP doesn’t work of me. As Douglas Adams said, “I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
