Is it just me or did May just completely fly by without hardly touching the ground? I cannot believe we are already into June. What’s even more unbelievable is that Bill and I will have been married 9 months tomorrow. How can time have gone by so fast?
Anyway, enough about that. This post is about goals, so I should probably get to those. I got almost all of the goals done. Here’s the complete list: Continue reading →
Happy May! A month ago, I said that April in Wisconsin could mean either temperatures of 70 or we could get snow. Well, we got both. Over 30″ of snow this month, including one weekend snowstorm where we got about 20″! Then yesterday, the temps got to 77 degrees! Talk about crazy weather.
My goals for April were:
Finish Lo, How a Rose (Tales of the East #2) Done!
Start and finish Rock of Ages (Tales of the East #3) Almost done!
Finish Trust and Obey edits #2-4 and send to proofreaders Mostly done!
Send Rachel’s blog tour info and promote it Done!
Get audiobooks ready for publication and set publication date Done!
Finish editing Trust and Obey and send to proofreaders
Finish writing Rock of Ages
Start editing Lo, How a Rose and send to beta-readers
Happy April! Spring is just about here. Of course, in Wisconsin, that can mean just about anything. We might have more snow yet sometime this month, or it might get up to 70 degrees (Fahrenheit).
All in all, March was a good month for me. I didn’t get as much done as I thought I would with my goals, but I did do some other things instead. Instead of the HLM and T&O edits, I got the house a bit more organized. There is still some organizing to do, but I feel good about how much I was able to do.
How was your month? What is the weather like where you are?

Do you have any goals for April? I’d love to hear them.
I hope your February went well. I know mine did. I got more done than I expected, participated in the Author Olympics (more on that in a minute), and had a few get-togethers at my house.
So the author olympics was started by a friend the last time the olympics happened. Basically, you set your expected goal (bronze), something hard to reach (silver), and something almost out of reach (gold). It was super fun and helped me be a little more productive than I may have been otherwise. Continue reading →
Time sure does fly. It seems like only yesterday that January started and now it’s ending already. . I just realized I never posted my January goals. Sorry about that. First, I’ll list my January goals and how I did with them and then I’ll share my February goals. Continue reading →
Last Sunday, December 31, Pastor Stephen preached a sermon entitled, Have a Fruitful New Year. It was the perfect sermon. The sermon was based on John 15:1-8 and talked about abiding in Christ so we can bear fruit for Him. After the news we got the Thursday before, I needed to hear it.
Here are some of my favorite points from the sermon, summarized by me.
There are two different kinds of people. Those who bear no fruit and those who do bear fruit. Continue reading →
