Inspirational quotes and hurray!

The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs. ~Vance Havner





Goals are dreams with deadlines. ~Diana Scharf Hunt





Life's problems wouldn't be called "hurdles" if there wasn't a way to get over them. ~Author Unknown

I can really relate to the first one. That 100k word count isn't quite as daunting anymore. I'm slowly making ground it.





I've made the Sven word count I was hoping for! I'm still working on all of my projects, but I will be doing a little more revision in the near future. Making Magic is going to be an ongoing project for at least the next couple of months. I hope to get back to Close Contact soon and finish it up. Then there are my other two projects. I have plenty of goals to keep me busy, to keep me climbing those steps.

Cuteness, great weather and writing

humorous pictures
more cat pictures

I just had to put this picture in because it was so cute.

May's here and the weather has been wonderful. The kind of days when you just want to be outside and enjoy it before the weather turns really hot.

Writing has been chugging along this week. I'm working on my newsletter. I missed last month and am hoping to get this out within the next few days. I'm working on Making Magic a lot, although the number count doesn't seem to be going up as fast as I sometimes think it should. I'm really thrilled with how the story is flowing even if I'd like to be farther on it than I am right now. Now Fated, those characters are screaming at me. They definitely want their story told and now. I'm having fun getting the start of this story down. I've been doing a little revision work too.

Sven. I've almost hit my goal number for it, but I haven't checked in in quite a while. I just keep forgetting. I'm going to keep pushing and hope I can finish the last little bit before the challenge ends.
