There are things I know I have to finish and get done, but then I tend to put them off to the last moment? I just started thinking about these things this week, because of the Health Challenge, I’ve been doing.
The Health Challenge this week was making sure I drink enough water each day. Each day I’ve gotten up earlier and I’ve also felt more energetic and all because I’ve been watching my calorie intake (food journal), drinking more water, and eating greener foods, less sugars and starches, and last, but not least I’ve done some form of exercise everyday for at least 30-45 minutes along with some strength training to build muscle. It’s also helped because I have an accountability partner and others that encourage me along the way. Becoming healthy isn’t achieved through dieting… it’s a lifestyle change. Have you set goals to accomplish today? This week? This month? Start now! Continue reading “Why you should set goals…”
YES! I finally did! The Mason of Hearts edit is DONE!
I am so excited that this edit of The Mason of Hearts, is DONE! It’s been a long journey with this book baby. And I feel that it isn’t even close to the end of the editing tunnel. But, I see the light!
The total count comes down to:
• 81 Chapters
• 91,147 words
• 626 Pages
I am so excited! Just had to let you all know. Keep an eye out for an exciting post this week with some fun pictures and maybe even a contest!
I am really enjoying the journey of writing/revising this book. I can’t wait to get it in front of people who want to read it. Now, my next step is sending it out to beta readers. I am nervous! Excited though!
The past few months have been so busy! So sorry its been awhile since I last posted. Man, have I missed it on here.
I haven’t been able to be on here much the past few months because I was traveling and had an editing deadline for “The Mason of Hearts” and YAY for that… because, I finished it! I sent it to my critique partner. At the moment, I am up to my ears in my critique partner’s edits. I am totally enjoying her story.
• Johan came to visit. It was glorious.
• Thanksgiving. Johan’s first Full Out American Thanksgiving. We had a full house as my grandma and cousin came up and my brother and sister both came home too.

I heard about this challenge called “A Year Without” at the World Domination Summit from Leo Babauta from the well known Zenhabits blog. And have been thinking about doing something similar for this year, but instead I am going to call my challenge “A year of…” Continue reading “A year of… (Resolutions)”
In the year of 2014, if I could accomplish only one thing it would be to find an agent/publisher for The Mason of Hearts. Maybe you could count that as two things, but yes, that is what I would accomplish if I could choose to accomplish anything.
Yep, I finished the edit for The Mason of Hearts! You got it, I am excited! Very!
Now, I can catch up with NaNoWriMo.
I am so excited about the story I am writing for NaNoWriMo. The world is so much more different than the one in The Mason of Hearts. But, if I must admit it – I miss writing The Mason of Hearts – one of my protagonists tried entering my NaNo Novel. I had to back up and tell him to go back to The Mason of Heart’s land. Tough – it must mean I am used to my characters from The Mason of Hearts and that I don’t want to stop writing about them. Well, I won’t because there will be two more where that came from, so he has plenty of time left. Continue reading “The Mason of Hearts Edit is Done! “
Don’t you love smelling the pumpkin pie scent waft through the house as it bakes in the oven. Sitting by the fireplace with a cup of hot apple cider is one of my favorite inside autumn activities.
It’s just so festive. The leaves crunch under my feet as I walk in the woods and the crispness of the rotting leaves fills my lungs… ahh… love it. I know, that might not sound so amazing, but if you’ve experienced autumn in a northern state than you probably know what I mean.
Here are a few things I’m looking forward to this Autumn.
