Home of a mother, wife, writer

This has been a pretty good week, at least in my little bubble. A lot of writing. A lot of reading. So, pretty much immersing myself in fiction. Seems to be what I’m best at. So, I guess I’ll just get right to it.

Just like the kids, fighting one minute, being all lovey the next.


  • Primary: Write 50000 words on 5 main projects – 19173/50000 words
    • Heart of Christmas – 2628 words
      • The door behind her slid open, and she didn’t have to turn to know it was Caelen coming inside. She held her breath for a moment. Maybe he had realized he was being an idiot, and everything could be okay again. But, he didn’t even come anywhere near her.
    • Still Burning – 2501 words
      • No. That was ridiculous. His father hadn’t wanted anything to do with him for the last twenty-seven years. Why would he now? And why would he be staking out Jess? That really didn’t make sense. She didn’t want anything to do with him, either.
    • Whatever It Takes – 2703 words
      • “So, Alexa,” he said, “anyone here today you want to try to hook Jayla up with? Or did you give up on that?”
        “I promised her I wouldn’t try to set her up with any other waiters,” Alexa said.
        Konner met Carisa’s eyes, and his grin widened. “I didn’t say anything about waiters, did I?”
    • High on Loving You – 2535 words
      • Morgan just stared at his phone for several minutes. It had to be because he hadn’t had any coffee yet. Hadn’t even taken a shower. That’s why he thought he read on the screen: Raina’s at the diner. Not sure what exactly happened, but was scared to stay at Kacy’s. She’s okay. Let me know what you want to do.
        What he wanted to do? He wanted to go and pound his fists on Kacy’s door and demand to know what she was doing that was scaring their daughter so much.
    • By the Gun – 2515 words
      • Because a trip to town was usually an all day to-do. “What are we going to do in the meantime?” he asked. “We can’t just let the cows keep escaping. We can’t lose that many.”
  • Secondary: Write 10000 words on 10 side projects -3467/10000 words(only including some snippets from these)
    • Patrick & Sarah – 123 words
    • Tavin & Haiwee – 203 words
    • Roman – 174 words
    • Dougal & Shae – 160 words
      • “I said she’s stupid. If she doesn’t think my baby brother is a catch, then what else would describe her?” *Aw, sibling loyalty. 🙂
    • Jacob & Matthew – 261 words
      • So, he would do what he could to keep himself safe. And Matthew. There was always Matthew. No matter how much he knew it would be better to stay away. He just couldn’t.
    • Mike & Fadil – 266 words
      • Which meant he had to stop thinking about Mike Keech, no matter how good looking he was. They both had too much on their plates for any involvement. He knew all too well what that kind of thing could lead to. And he couldn’t do it again.
    • Preggers – 210 words
      • “Grieve for me, Lyndi. I won’t be able to stop you. But, don’t spend the rest of your life not living just because I’m gone.” She’d hated when he brought it up, before each deployment it seemed, but he’d been adamant that he’d want her to move on if something did happen to him. She wished he’d had the same conversation with his family, though.
    • Hawk – 354 words
    • Sean & Braeden – 203 words
    • Jared’s Stepfather – 204 words
      • The officer shook his head. “I’m sorry to inform you, your stepfather is dead.”
  • Stretch: Write 20 pages in composition notebook on Jonas & Isaac’s story(already had 2 pages written at beginning of month) – 29/20 pages. Raising this to 40 pages.


  • Primary: Edit Stained Blood as I get chapters back
  • Secondary: Edit Flames of Renewal once I get it back
  • Stretch: Polish In the Moonlight and Staring at the Sun, post Staring at the Sun on Wattpad, Edit Midas’ Daughter – 34/34 polished for In the Moonlight, made cover for Staring at the Sun, 50/50 polished for Staring at the Sun, created the page for Staring at the Sun on Wattpad and uploaded cover.


  • Primary: Read 30 books – 13/30
    • Two of a Kind(Susan Mallery) – Started this Friday afternoon. Finished it Sunday night.
    • Interborough(Santino Hassell) – Started this Sunday night. Finished it Monday night. Loved it.
    • Fatal Justice(Marie Force) – started this Monday night. Finished it Tuesday night. Enjoyed it.
    • Undeniably Yours(Shannon Stacey) – Started this Wednesday afternoon. Finished Wednesday night. Enjoyed it.
    • Beauty and the Mustache(Penny Reid) – Started this Wednesday night. Finished it Thursday night. Really enjoyed it.
    • Tempting Mr. Weatherstone(Vivienne Lorret) – Read this Friday morning. It was a novella, so a really quick read.
    • Asking for Trouble(Tessa Bailey) – Read this Friday afternoon. Really enjoyed it.

    • Carry Me Home(Rosalind James) – Started this Friday afternoon. Finished it Tuesday afternoon. Liked it. Though I could handle not ever reading/hearing another male character telling a female character to act/dress/look feminine. In the context in this book, it wasn’t so bad, but I’ve heard it enough in my own life that I’m rather tired of it.
    • Forgotten Memories(Robin Perini) – Started this Tuesday afternoon. Finished this Friday morning. Enjoyed it.
