Five Favorite Games of 2018

We play a lot of games here in the Williams’s household. Pre-kids, Spreadsheet Guy and I would get together with friends several times a month. We don’t get to do that as often now, but the minions are getting older, they’re learning how to read, and they’re getting a...

Goal Met and Decluttering my Brain

October was a 25,000 word month! The first in, like, forever. I'm feeling pretty good about myself. lol But it's not lost on me that many authors do this much in a week. I just...can't. I don't even want to do more. I mean, sure, it would be nice to double that...

Lost Time

I've maintained a decent word count since returning from the writing retreat this weekend. I've been listening to music more, deliberately blocking news/media from my consciousness, and timing my writing time. I'm working in 30 minute blocks, and once I start a block,...

Back from my Writing Retreat!

Happy Monday, everyone! I had a FANTASTIC weekend! Got about 6,800 words written on Kennedy Rain's book, which is about what I write during a good week (I need a lot more "good" writing weeks!). I've come to terms with my slow deliberate writing, thanks to Becca Syme....

T-minus 1 Day

Writing retreat starts tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yall, I can't tell you how much I love these retreats. This is the third one, and I cannot wait. I drive about an hour north of my home to meet up with writers from the Dallas Area Romance Authors, and we stay in a house...

Sandy Recommends: Star Nomad by Lindsay Buroker

I found the book of my dreams, guys! I am so freaking in love with it. With EVERYTHING in it! It's perfect. So perfect! Everything I want to happens happens. Things I didn't know I wanted to happen happen too. And the characters are all amazing. I'm in love! The first...

On Cokes and Cars and Chucking It

If you're born in the south, or at least in Texas, there's a good chance you refer to any can of soda as a coke. If we're at a restaurant and I tell Spreadsheet Guy to order me a coke, he knows I don't mean Coke. I hate straight-up Coke. When I say coke, it means Diet...

An Apology and a Beginning

Today I looked up the date that I published Shades of Honor. I couldn't quite remember when it was, but I was still shocked that it's almost been two years. Two years! It felt like one, and it's just crazy that it's taking me so long to write the third anomaly novel....

Want to know what Rykus smells like?

I know. That's, like, the weirdest headline ever, right? But I'm serious! I've been playing around with essential oils for almost a year (it was part of my need-to-get-healthier kick). I recently bought Vetiver because I read somewhere that it can help with focus, and...

Nonfiction Review: How to Break up with Your Phone

How to Break Up with Your Phone: The 30-Day Plan to Take Back Your Life by Catherine Price My rating: 3 of 5 stars I'll give this one 3.5.I really enjoyed the first half of the book. I find brain science fascinating, and the changes that phones/screens can make to our...

Boot Camp, Party, and Weekly Update

Happy Monday! I had a fantastic weekend. Not only did I finish the day Friday with my 5,000 word a week goal met, but I went through Sarra Cannon's HB90 Boot Camp. That's the class I mentioned last week that helps authors plan their year. Or rather, plan the next...

December 10 Update

Happy Monday, you guys! I'm excited to start another week! Last week was good, but I just barely squeaked through and met my work count. My goal is 5k words a week, and on Friday, I still had over 3k to go. I headed out to Target for the first time in ages so I...
