Checking in on my goals

| June 12, 2014

The year is almost half over. I can hardly believe it! And a busy year it has been, too. But has it been productive? Well, let’s check in on that and see how I’m doing. I’d set myself some goals at the beginning of January. Basically, I wanted to: Write more consistently Read more often […]

It’s finally here!!

| April 1, 2014

It’s up, it’s up, it’s up! I know I haven’t been communicating as much as I intended lately, but partly that’s related to the fact that I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on my short story! Or… ummm… Elizabeth has been putting the finishing touches on her story. Whatever. Anyway, Elizabeth McCleary’s story, Watch […]

A New Beginning!

| January 1, 2014

Happy new year, everybody! Another year is in the books, full of yesterdays and memories. Another year is just beginning, full of fresh possibilities. I’m not making any resolutions this year. Resolutions, I think, don’t really work, because resolutions tend to be about what we’re going to do different than we have done before. They […]

Advent Calendar News!

| November 27, 2013

I mentioned in my last post that I was participating in an Advent Calendar with some friends. For those who may not know, an Advent Calendar, at it’s most basic, is a means of counting down the days from December 1st until Christmas. It started as a German tradition, but has taken hold almost everyplace […]

photo: philcampbell I have been busy. Very, very busy. Between travel associated with my day job, training associated with my self-employment, working to get something published, training for a half-marathon, and assorted other things eating my time, I have not been posting much on this here blog. Perhaps you noticed. *insert eye roll here* Anyway, […]

Out of the chrysalis…

| September 24, 2013

photo: Johan J.Ingles-Le Nobel Vacation is a good thing. I feel refreshed and renewed (now that I’ve recovered from vacation, anyway). I had time to relax and catch-up with family and friends that I don’t see nearly enough. And I got enough distance from my day-to-day that I gained some new perspective. This is a […]

My to-do list

| April 11, 2013

Ever feel like you have a giant-sized to-do list? I’ve got so much going on in my life right now. It’s a very good thing, but when I stop to think about it, it can become overwhelming. Here’s a list of everything on my personal to-do list. (I’ll leave off my regular “day job” of […]

Early to rise – An Experiment in Time

| April 1, 2013

Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy and wealthy and wise. ~ 18th century proverb I started something new today. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a little bit terrified at it, despite it being something completely non-terrifying. I got up early. On purpose. Well… sort of. I set an […]

Work in progress!!!

| March 18, 2013

For the first time in quite a while, I have a work in progress! I am working on a piece of fiction that is actually keeping me interested. It’s only a short story, but even as I’m writing it, I am intrigued by it. I can’t wait to find out what’s next! Is that weird […]

What is your story?

| September 9, 2012

We are, at our best, the protagonists in our own stories. We are, or should be, the central character in our daily lives. What those lives look like, what their purpose is, and how they unfold toward (or away from) our destinies and callings, are the plots to our stories. The things that keep us […]
