My lovely assistant was with me this morning when I discovered some exceptionally wonderful news. I look forward to telling you about that news… next month.

For now, just be happy with me. Raise a glass in celebration (alcohol, water, coffee, tea, whatever).

I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about not only writing down these goals, but about making PLANS as to how to achieve them.

The greatest increase of Twitter followers has always been, for me, from running Giveaways and taking part in #WW Writer Wednesday. I get a slight bump from bloghops, but nowhere near the bump I get from my buddy Stu @Trans1110 giving me a Shoutout and @seams16 Eric remembering me on #FF Follow Friday. I’m not sure that I have another plan. Maybe I should plan to plan? Goal of coming up with a plan?

The update theme… I just have to go find that line of code I used so the update doesn’t screw up all my images. I probably wrote it down. How to achieve this goal = stop being lazy and go hunt my notes down!

I’m helping a friend of a friend to raise money toward cancer research. It’s a great cause, and an opportunity for advertisement for those with a business and a charitable side.

My goal for this weekend is to get you to share/ retweet this tweet:


  • Publish two decent-selling book series (speculative fiction)
  • Survive at least another 39 years
  • There’s also the Bucket List.
