2020 Writing Goals – October Check-in

At the start of this year, some writer friends and I chose a word as the theme for the coming 12 months. Mine was LEARN. I’ve definitely been learning. And now we’re on the downhill run towards the end of the year. In some ways, it feels like the months have dragged on beyond belief, andContinue reading “2020 Writing Goals – October Check-in”

2020 Writing Goals – Mid-year Check-in

Any wonder that I wasContinue reading “Where’d you go, Emily?”

2020 Writing Goals

It’s a new year, and while new year is kind of an arbitrary thing, I admit I like arbitrary new start feelings. It is a good time to look back and look forward.
