I did not write very much in April. I honestly cannot tell you what I was doing instead of writing.
I applied for a bunch of jobs. We road tripped around Lake Michigan for 10 days, and then… Awesome Con. Writing was completely lost in that mix, but it was still a great month overall.

March felt like a long month, likely because I spent much of it at home. I am still unemployed, but I was able to use my wide-open schedule to make some legitimate progress on
The Warden of Everfeld: Legacy.
But how did my other goals for the month fare???? Find out, next! Continue reading April Write Day: Progress at Last
We have reached another month, and that means that, on this first Friday, it’s time for a writing update.
Notice the new title card? I kind of like the idea of switching up the photo each month, as a sort of thematic gesture.

I know we’re already a month a and a half into the year, but I haven’t yet laid out my book marketing plans. I needed some time to mull over what my real goals were and how I can actually reach them.
Answering the first question is easy: Sell. More. Books. As for the second question, well, let’s discuss.

In my last Friday Write-Day post two weeks ago, I mentioned how I might change up the format of this once-weekly post to both challenge myself and provide some more unique content on RSPC.
I thought about a bi-weekly update for about a minute, until I realized that nothing outside of paychecks are scheduled fortnightly, and scheduling my blog in that manner would be ridiculous.
So now it’s monthly. On the first Friday of each month, I’ll update ya’ll on my writing progress from the previous month and talk about my goals for the new month. I’ll have a new title card for this monthly series next month.

In case there’s anyone who has yet to notice, 2018 is over, and that means 2019 is full of hope and promise… or maybe cynicism, depending on your outlook.
Before I get into my own plans for 2019, I’d like to stick to my now-annual tradition of looking back at our stats here on RSPC for 2018.
Time for some humble number bragging, a.k.a. the Numberbrag!

Stay-at-home parenting is hard. Well, it’s not
difficult, but it is time-consuming and frustrating.
It’s also fulfilling. These last two weeks have flown by. Things that happened a week ago already feel distant, because my days have been non-stop.
Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Vacation is almost Over!
This has been a strange week in terms of my writing and publishing goals. While stay-at-home dad-ing, I’ve had little to no time to actually write much, but that’s not really the issue.
I find myself growing increasingly impatient with my writing and publishing progress. Consider this post my attempt to reset myself.
Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Trying to be Patient
Man, my two-week stay-at-home-dad-cation cannot come fast enough.
Between work, the usual holiday stresses, and… mostly work, I’m really looking forward to just sitting at home with Nugget.

This week has gone by pretty fast, but I’ve been looking ahead a lot.
Still, I managed to reach my highest word count written since the summer.
