March Check-In

Hey all! It’s crazy to think we are half way through the month already and it feels like I have done nothing.

That isn’t true, actually, I’ve been so busy I’m not sure how I’ve accomplished what I have done HA!

I’m two books in for the month and though I have enough time month wise to get more in, I am going to chill the reading for the month to clear room for the prep work on the relaunch of my motherhood blog that I hope to do in June. I’ve also finished my draft one for the book I have been working on since January and so I will let it sit about two weeks before I go into my first round of the dreaded edit phase.

I’m also working on revamping this site. I know I just relaunched but I want to be able to take this blog in the direction to help curate and build my author platform for when I am far enough to actually publish, whether self or traditional, and with that comes a lot of planning and seeking advice from others who are making it work in this crazy world we are living in.

Like many, my long term goal is to sustain myself with writing, blogging and reviewing books. It’s a passion of mine that hasn’t simmered since I was a child but as a single mom of three young boys, it proves to be a task sometimes to prioritize something that has been more of a hobby all these years when I have kids yanking at me at every turn.

That being said, however, if I want to make my dreams a reality, I need to prioritize as a job and not a hobby and while it has taken some time I can finally say I’m getting to that point. We have some potentially huge changes coming into our lives in the future and I want to be ready for it. I’m eternally grateful to have each and every one of you here.

So March is hectic and will continue to be hectic. But I’m enjoying the whirlwind and can’t wait to bring you some more content that will help us all! Much love, as always,

Simply put, I'm a thirty something single mom of three young boys with a passion for reading and writing. Writing, and reading for that matter, has been a passion since elementary school when a friend and I had our short collection of poetry published through the school where it was on display in the library for an entire year. While I still enjoy poetry, my love has grown into short stories and full length novels. Tag along for the journey, it'll be documented here every step of the way.
