Books, stories, anthologies, and more is what my 2023 intention and goals are all about. I hope this provides any writer a roadmap and inspiration to design their careers.

Entering year five of the blog (!!!) and with a lot of my history as a writer stored here, I'm always wondering how to change or update the blog to meet my life.
Writing Life Updates: End of 2022
Monthly check-ins are easy to do, but year-end wrap-ups are hard. I write and publish a lot in various markets, so it's not as though I don't have links to share. It's just that when I look back over my year, the amount of stories I've sold and how much I've published is only a small part of my writing career.

Writing Life Updates: September 2022
