My Current Works-in-progress and How I Keep Them All Going

Okay, this is actually pretty funny. The topic I was given was: “My current work-in-progress.” But I don’t exactly have a current work-in-progress. I have at least six. I suppose I could just pick one and tell you all about it. But instead, I thought I’d give you a glimpse at how this writer is […]

My writing targets (and how I plan to hit them!)

Anyone who knows me well is aware that I have “To Do” lists I refer to on a daily basis. I’ve used everything from notebooks, to pads with printed numbers, to journals, to pages I created and printed to put into a binder, to random lists, to sticky notes. I frequently read books on being […]

You don’t have to wait until January 1st to set goals. But if it is January 1st, it would be good to get busy! Okay, you might call them resolutions, but I try to have real goals, which I think are a step up. And I update my goals regularly, so it’s not just a […]

Putting Things Off

A few years ago, I realized that my favorite nightgown was too big. I started looking for a new one, but didn’t see anything similar. (By the way, why do clothes designers seem to only make clothes for very thin young women or very large older women? But that’s another post.) I considered making my […]
