General goals over the next couple months (March and April) are to add a minimum of 16,000 words to Trinity Coven, and revise and submit at least one poem a week.


There are so many things I want to do, so many groups I want to be a part of. But I have to learn balance. Goals are great, but I'll only get depressed if I overextend myself. Sometimes I need a reality check. Of course, I could also get more done if I procrastinated less.


Made good progress on TC yesterday. I have a clear picture of where the next few chapters will be going, so that should help my writing goals.


B's birthday is this Sunday. He's already super excited. We let him pick out what type of cake and frosting he wants. It will be a very simple cake. I'm not the expert my mom is. But I think he'll have fun helping me make his cake this year. He'll be turning five years old. He's been saying he's five years old for a few weeks now, LOL. It will be true soon enough. =) We bought him the movie "Scooby Doo Meets Batman" (two of his favorite characters) and a building bridges logic game. Not much, but he's already received two new board games since Christmas. We buy quite a bit for him throughout the year, so it's easy not to go overboard on holidays. I can't believe B will be in Kindergarten next year! My little boy is growing up.


  1. I think it is so impressive that you write poems. I've never been much of a poet even though my Mom is really good at it. :) And get some more queries out there!

  2. Good work on the goals. Happy Birthday for B. My birthday is on Saturday.

  3. Happy Birthday B! :) - Jo

  4. Awww, I hope B has a wonderful birthday! They grow up so fast, don't they?
