Another auld lang syne (2014 into 2015) – My goals for the new year

| January 1, 2015

Happy new year, everybody. Here I am on January 1, 2015, and I’m finally checking in on the goals I declared for myself last year. In short, those goals were: Write 500 words per day 4-5 times per week. Read 50 books. Keep up with my health pursuits. The bad news is, I didn’t meet […]

Coming into focus

| October 6, 2014

Big surprise here… I haven’t posted lately. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to. In all honesty, I really just haven’t thought about it much. Partly – or maybe mostly – that’s because I have a problem with focus. Despite the fact that I’m only a part time employee at my “day job,” I feel […]

News Flash – I have a published Flash Fiction story!

| August 4, 2014

Something is becoming clear to me that I’ve been aware of for a while. I’m actually a pretty good writer, but I’m a terrible blogger! Big surprise. That said, I’m excited to announce that I’ve been selected (in my guise as mild-mannered Elizabeth McCleary) as a winner in an online flash fiction contest. It was […]

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 […]

Cover reveal – The Adventure of Creation

| July 3, 2013

The cover for The Adventure of Creation was actually officially announced on the HTTS blog on Monday. I’m absolutely thrilled to share the news here as well. And for those who may not be aware, I wasn’t just one of the judges – I’m fortunate enough to have a story included as well. (We didn’t […]

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 […]

Treadmill Desk

| October 2, 2012

I put together a simple treadmill desk using Rubbermaid wire shelves and zip ties. Total cost about $20. Tell me what you think.

Eternal

| August 22, 2012

This past Sunday it was my privilege to paint at church. I went in not knowing what I wanted to paint and just began applying paint to the canvas. When I was done, I was incredibly pleased with what had been created. And even cooler – I got to give the painting away to someone […]
