Weekend at Thistle Dew

Weekend at Thistle Dew

As I write this blog I’m sitting in a home, much of which was built sometime in the early 1800s. It’s set on 300 acres in the foothills of the Adirondack mountains, in Remsen, New York. Wolfka, the friendliest dog in quite possibly the entire world, is curled up somewhere, probably at the feet, or near the feet of, a busy writer who is tapping away at their keyboard. Writers are writing in the Adirondack room, and others are sitting…

January Romance-o-poly

January Romance-o-poly

I’m a few days late on my January Romance-o-poly round-up. After a super busy week last week that lasted in to the weekend, I got behind. I did finish my January Progress post, which you can find HERE. That post is a quick run down of the words written, books read (not just my #Romance-o-poly books), television shows I’m streaming, and books bought–for January, anyway!

While I’ve mainly been in revision…

2019 Reading Challenge: #Romanceopoly

2019 Reading Challenge: #Romanceopoly

One of the things I’ve missed about blogging and reading more is having fun challenges to do throughout the year. I used to do them all the time on Goodreads and had shelves of different challenges or I’d be doing challenges in the groups I was in. I wouldn’t always finish, but they kept me motivated to keep reading and get through the mountains of to-be-read books. Last July, when I went to my first RWA Conference I came home…

The Ultimate Planner Crash and Burn

The Ultimate Planner Crash and Burn

I had started 2018 by purchasing one of those annual goal setting workbooks and dutifully went through, completing the entire thing. I had deadlines and goals and an action plan and I put everything in my planner with pretty stickers and glitter and washi. I was going to knock 2018 outta the park!! Looking back at my major goals, I didn’t get one damn thing done. Not one. There are several reasons for this. Some because life happened. But as…
