It’s been more than a month since I last published a blog post, and in that time I’ve done a lot of thinking. March was a strange month. I saw bloggers and posts that spoke to my problem with blogging on a level I didn’t think anyone else could understand.

April Goals

I lost a loved one, after eight years in a battle with cancer, she went home. Death is a strange thing, and I feel like it’s been in the forefront of my mind a lot in the past month.

Enough of the dark, depressing things. To be honest, I didn’t make any goals for March. March was just about working on edits and looking for jobs.

The job search is a funny thing. It ebbs and flows, some weeks I hear nothing. Some weeks (like a few weeks ago), I have three interviews in two days. I feel like I’m getting close. Right now, I feel like I’m getting close. Closing in on something. But I don’t think that something is buy medications online here in Dallas-Fort Worth.

But I finished edits on Double Played, and last night, I started the first draft of the third book, which now has a name! Justice & Lies, and I’ll be writing the whole first draft for Camp Nano!

Since I don’t have an actual goals list from March, I can’t compare and contrast, but I have a lot of plans for this month.

-follow up with said jobs
