Welcoming March

March always feels like one of the longest month's of the year for me.  This was especially true when I was teaching.  The beginning of March would see us all returning to school after a week long break and the kids (well, yes as a matter of fact, the teachers too) were already chomping at...

Goals for Quarter 4

It's March at the end of this week.  Oh.  My.  Stars. How the first two months of 2019 have disappeared so fast, I just don't know.  But it has, and I'm rolling along with it.  Or being rolled over by it.  Really depends on the day.  ūüôā  The beginning of March marks the start of...

It’s Just a Phase

This is one of those things I started saying A LOT when I became a parent.  Right now, we're dealing with some sleep regression issues with our toddler.  And this is the phrase I've said to myself every night for the past week.  At 1:00 AM.  When she's not sleeping.   And neither am I.  :/...

Getting back into tutoring shifts, preparing for some travel, starting dance competition season, etc have absolutely taken over and working toward my goals has taken a serious back seat.

Day 26-Daily Word Count- 1,832.¬† I broke 45,000 words!¬† Less than 5,000 to go! Day 27-Daily Word Count- 786. Short and sweet today.

NaNoWriMo 2

Day 5-Daily Word Count- 1,732. I had to break from one chapter to the next today. Typically, I try to write one chapter per day, but I had to do it differently. Tomorrow I will continue the chapter I started today. I didn't know the full motivation for why my main character is doing what... Continue Reading →
