I have always struggled with keeping up with my social media. No matter how hard I tried to get myself into a routine or the zone, I inevitably fell off the branding/ content bandwagon within a few weeks.

Week One of Freelancing: A Success? 🤷🏼♂️
This week, I concentrated on getting myself set up on Fiverr with a few gigs to kick off my plunge into freelancing. Whereas the process wasn’t complicated, it was a new experience, with me unsure of where I fit in. Every time that I sat down in front of the computer and opened the descriptionContinue reading “Week One of Freelancing: A Success? 🤷🏼♂️”
Writer for Hire?
As I’ve written about many times, finding time to write is always tricky. With the 9-to-5 job, a family, and just the time needed to wind down for my sanity, having a solid block of time to work on my novels and short stories seems nearly impossible to achieve. Obviously, stating it as an impossibilityContinue reading “Writer for Hire?”
Kickin’ it at 36
Mortality is an interesting thing and if COVID has taught us anything, it is that it should be valued. Today marked my 36th birthday and, while it was a time to reflect on being another year older with my professional dreams not yet achieved, it also opened up the world of possibilities before me.

In that time I’ve been diligently working on short story submissions, my short story collection for publication, and the revision of my novel manuscript.

So my current benchmarks are: -Finish revision ofContinue reading “Hello 2021 👋🏼🥳 Let’s Accomplish Some Things!”
The holiday’s have always been difficult for me when it comes to my writing. Pressure at work combined with the coordination of family events always led me to sacrifice my passion. This year (in part due to the pandemic) it is a bit different. Since a lot of people are not meeting with family thisContinue reading “Holiday Melancholy”
NaNo 2020 is Over!
NaNoWriMo is officially over and I wanted to take a moment to reflect on it. The struggle was… well, just that. Much like every year, I started out strong and encountered various fluctuations in my writing patterns but, unlike years past, I didn’t give up. Now that the month is over, I can look backContinue reading “NaNo 2020 is Over!”
Entering the Home Stretch
Just a quick update on NaNoWriMo 2020. I am entering the home stretch with just 10 days left to go. The last several days since my last update have seen their ups and downs and I am still behind my word goal, but the good news is I’m not fretting. I have made a tonContinue reading “Entering the Home Stretch”
The Balancing Act- NaNo 1/3 Down
NaNoWriMo is always a challenge whether I am prepared for it with notes and an outline or if I am jumping in fresh with nothing but an idea. This year has been no different. I was pretty excited about the prospect of what I could accomplish seeing as it coincided with the launch of myContinue reading “The Balancing Act- NaNo 1/3 Down”
