This year I decided to actually pick a word for the year to focus on. I chose OPPORTUNITY. Opportunity (op-por-tu-ni-ty) noun / A set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something. I was kind of tired of setting “goals” or resolutions every year and not achieving them. I try but I don’t always succeed. So this year I’m picking words. A year word to focus on for the year. Opportunity can come in to play so many ways. Even with pairing it with the word of the month. My word of the month is MINDFUL. Between the two … Continue reading Opportunity
Hey friend. *head nod* What’s up? What is going on with you in 2016? As we go into the new year I have some new adventures to look forward to. Very exciting.

So unfortunately at this point I have nothing else to share with you about NaNo. I’m thankful it’s over (TGIO) and will work out a better plan for next year. Continue reading TGIO NaNoWriMo
So we’re half way through NaNo, but some of us are not half way through our word count. Like me. As you can see based on my little widget on the left I’m sadly lagging behind. Between working 40 hrs … Continue reading NaNo Check in
