I completed HB90 and have my quarter all set up, and I'm continuing Publish and Thrive. I'll be writing Girlie in November, and I think what I'll be doing with it is making it into 4 or 5 'shorter' books... short for me is easily 50,000 words.... writing and editing them all, and then I'll … Continue reading HB90 Is Complete and My Plans
Yes, it really has been that long since I graduated. One of my classmates put a lot of effort, money, and time into the reunion, so I'm grateful to her. I didn't initially realize how much work she did to make it be a nice evening, so thank you! I only misnamed four people. *facepalm* … Continue reading 20 Year High School Reunion
Since this came up in another post, I thought I'd make a list for you. Kaler Born - written when I was 14, this is my biggest dumpster fire of a book! 75,000 words. Shields of Magic - mostly written in notes passed back and forth with a friend, age 15. 30,000 words. Familiar - … Continue reading How Many Books Have I Drafted?

You can see I've narrowed my focus for the quarter from the ridiculous list of things I WANTED to get down to the highest priority/biggest impact items. Outlining … Continue reading Kanban Board from HB90 for Quarter Four

Tundra tends to have tantrums and destroy our couch. This time he made his best cute face after. And then to show more of the … Continue reading Cute Tundra After a Couch Tantrum – Photos Within
I'm working on Sarra Cannon's HB90 class right now, and I just reached the goal setting section. So far it's been eye opening, and she's had us clearly delineate how much time we have for things in a realistic fashion. She limits you to THREE goals, clearly stated, with measurable results.
