Goodbye 2020. Hello 2021.

2020 – What. A. Year. There was a lot to deal with, wasn’t there? I won’t mention the big events that have been talked about over and over. We all know what they are. Instead, here’s a quick recap of my year, personally. Early on in 2020, work got overwhelming. My very first post was […]

Officially On Hiatus

You may have noticed that I haven’t made a post at all so far this year. There are a few reasons for that, but the main one is that my day job is keeping my extremely busy lately and will continue to do so for the next few months. So, the plans I have to […]

One Word 365 (2020)

The purpose of One Word 365 is to put aside the usual New Year’s resolutions that we never seem to keep. Instead, you pick one word. Just one word that you want to spend the year focusing on and living out… whatever that may mean for you, personally. My One Word for 2020 is focus. […]

The Reading Rut of 2019

I go through at least one reading rut every year, and I’m currently in one. Part of the reason is that my job is keeping me busy and mentally exhausted. The other reason, I believe, is that I’m reading St. Augustine’s Confessions, which is not light reading. The little bit of time I get to […]

The Long-Distance Race

The Bullet Journal: To Plan or to Track?

I’ve tried a lot of ways to get myself organized with my writing. Not just in terms of keeping track of ideas and notes, but in terms of making myself sit down and get things done. I was using a Monthly/Daily planner for a while, but I eventually fell away from keeping it up. I […]

Update (due to lack of updates)

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve consistently posted. Part of this is due to the fact that I’ve hit a reading slump. Life got hectic, and my brain has been exhausted to the point where reading was the last thing I wanted to do. Writing was second-to-last. I’m trying to get back in […]

I Am a Writer: Mission Statement

I AM A WRITER My mission is to create fiction that will entertain readers while sharing the Gospel in some form. I have always admired writers, and have dabbled in creative writing since about age nine. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve written longer stories that have caused the urge to write and publish a novel […]

A Slight Change in Plans

I had meant for A.D. 30 to be the last book I read in 2014. I didn’t get to it before the year ended, and so it became my first of 2015. I’m taking that as a sign. I enjoyed this book so much. It encouraged my faith, and reminded me just how much I […]
