Regrets and the Chance to Start Again

Regrets and the Chance to Start Again

In terms of writing progress, I’d have to say that 2013 was a cycle of slivers of success scattered among blisters of self-doubt and long-term stalls. The highlight was attending my first writers’ conference back in May. In Nov I hoped to make a big writing push. It was derailed quickly, crashed, burned and was […]

Looking Back

Looking Back

As I reflect on this past year, I can honestly say there’s not a lot I would do differently. Some stuff, probably, including not committing to some things that turned out to be way more work for less reward than I anticipated, but really, not a lot. I didn’t finish all the writing projects I […]

Celebrating 2013

Celebrating 2013

New Year’s Day is usually a time to look forward. We make fresh starts and leave bad memories behind. But all memories aren’t bad. It would be remiss to move forward without giving thanks and celebrating the good things that happened. For me 2013 will stand as an amazing year. My bride and I purchased […]

Preparing for the Future

Preparing for the Future

This past weekend, I sat down with my new iBloom life and business planner to figure out what I was going to do in the year to come. The front of the planner has a whole section on reflecting on 2013 and my and God’s vision for 2014. It really made me think about where […]

Traveling

We got to cram a lot of excitement into a short period of time, including having Christmas with the grandparents and cousins, enjoying a few snow flurries, feeding […]

Trying Something New

Trying Something New

Something happened to me during the last quarter of 2012. Usually, my life is pretty mundane. I’d tell you just how mundane, but I don’t want you nodding off on me. Better just to trust what I tell you. My life is normally very, very predictable. As 2012 drew to an end, however, it was […]

Charging into 2013

Charging into 2013

I can hardly believe that tomorrow is the first day of 2013–2012 can’t be over yet! I didn’t finish half of what I planned to accomplish. I have so much left undone. Where did the year go? If you’ve been around here and checked out my posts at all, you know that this has been […]

Story is King

Story is King

Story is superior to sleep. Thanks to the lovely Amazon gift card I received for Christmas, I was reminded of this truth in the other day. Or should I say wee hours of the morning. A good story will keep me up long past when I know I should be asleep, and two have done […]
