January 2019 Wrapup / February 2019 Goals

Hey guys,

So, January is over and… I’ve done pretty poorly with my goals for the month. (Sighs) I’m so disappointed in myself. So why not share my failure with you guys so you can be disappointed too?

Here we go…

1. Read 4 books – This is a fail. I only read 2 books for the month.
2. Finish TFS book 2. – Also a fail, though I only have two chapters left to write.
3. Clean Room – SUCCESS!!! This is big for me because my room was a complete mess, but now it’s clean.
4. Private sales goal – Fail.
5. Make a doctors appointment. Fail. I’m going to hang my head in shame at this one because this has been a goal for months and I still haven’t made that appointment.
6. Make a video for my youtube writing channel – Success.
7. Learn how to budget ( Such a struggle) – Fail
8. Record a video for vlog channel. – Success

So, out of eight goals I managed to complete three so I am going to count this as a fail because it was less than half. I’m going to blame it on the fact that I’m sick but I know there is no excuse for getting up and doing what I said I would do.

I’m embarrassed so lets move on to my new goals.

1. Read six books (This is crazy but I have to catch up.)
2. Finish TFS book 2. (I only have two chapters so this should be completed right away.)
3. Put together series bible for TTW book 1
4. Start editing first draft of TFS book 2
5. Private sales goal
6. Make a doctors appointment (You guys can certainly yell at me on this one)
7. Learn how to budget
8. Be more social (I spent way too much time alone)

Okay. That’s it. Those are my eight goals for the month of February. Wish me luck guys.

Hey guys,

I am so sorry for getting this post out to you guys so late. I was struggling to come up with some attainable goals for this month.

Here’s my goals…

2. Finish TFS book 2.
3. Clean Room
4. Private sales goal
5. Make a doctors appointment.
6. Make a video for my youtube writing channel
7. Learn how to budget ( Such a struggle)
8. Record a video for vlog channel.

Wish me luck guys. I’m going to need it.

There you have it. All the books I read in 2018. Here’s to an even better reading year in 2019.

November 2018 Wrap Up & December 2018 Goals

Hey Guys,

So Last month I shared with you a list of goals that I made for myself for the month on November. Here’s how I did…

1. Finish drafting The Five Sister’s Book Two – Failed
2. Start drafting Thicker Than Water Book One – Succeeded
3. Get ISBN for The Hood Diaries Book One – Failed
4. Get To work ON TIME!!!! (I seem to have an issue getting up in the AM) – Succeeded
5. Plot The Hood Diaries Book Two – I completed this but I will probably go back over it
6. (Personal Sales Goal) – Succeeded and I’m proud of it.

I think I did good considering I completed four of the six goals. However, I did add three more to the list later on and only completed one, so…

Well here are the goals for December. Here’s hoping I do better.

1. Look for office space.
2. Finish drafting Thicker Than Water Book One
3. Post a video to Journey To Full Time Writer YouTube channel
4. Post a video to Totally Random Me YouTube channel
5.Personal Sales Goal
6. Get to work on time (A daily struggle)
7. Personal goal
8. Go to the doctor

Wish me luck. I’ll be back next month.h

November 2018 Goals

Hey guys,

So I have tried making quarterly goals and I fail every time, so I decided to try monthly goals to see if I can meet them. I am going to share them with you to get some accountability.

Here we go…

1. Finish drafting The Five Sister’s Book Two
2. Start drafting Thicker Than Water Book One
3. Get ISBN for The Hood Diaries Book One
4. Get To work ON TIME!!!! (I seem to have an issue getting up in the AM)
5. Plot The Hood Diaries Book Two
6. (Personal Sales Goal)

Alright, that’s it. All of my goals for November. In December I will let you know how I did and also what my new goals are.

Talk to you soon.

Book Discussion – Bodyguard

Hey 172 followers,

Here with a new book discussion.

Remember to grab a copy before continuing because there may be spoilers.

Kindle – https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01B0QXBA8/ref=x_gr_w_glide_ku_bb?ie=UTF8&tag=x_gr_w_glide_ku_bb-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B01B0QXBA8&SubscriptionId=1MGPYB6YW3HWK55XCGG2

Paperback – https://www.amazon.com/Bodyguard-Snake-Eyes-Tabatha-Kiss/dp/153353828X/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

I gave this book four stars. It was a good book. That is with that fact that I am choosing to ignore the stepbrother/stepsister aspect.

That’s right. Fox and Dani and related. Well, Fox’s mother married Dani’s father. They shared a kiss on Dani’s eighteenth birthday and Fox was kicked out by his stepfather. He joins the army. Dani becomes a famous actress using the stage name Roxie. Fox “dies” in service. Dani is attacked and Fox comes back to rescue her. Of course the two have strong feelings for each other that hasn’t faded away over the five years they were apart and eventually Fox takes Dani’s virginity.

Again, we’re going to ignore the fact that they lived as brother and sister once upon a time.

There was action. Romance. Drama and of course, sex. This wasn’t overly long and it wasn’t too short. I managed to get through this pretty quickly but it didn’t leave me with a feeling that I was missing something.

I got a well rounded story and I really enjoyed it. Four stars enjoyed it.

What did you guys think? Let me know in the comments.

Talk to you later.

Book Discussion – Billionaires & Ballerinas

Hey 172 followers,

Back with another book discussion.

Remember to grab a copy before continuing because there may be spoilers.

Now onto the discussion…

I gave this book three stars. It was alright. A bit too short. Rose is a ballerina and she is planning to retire because her knees are getting pretty bad. Drew is a lawyer working for her big shot brother. They have basically been forbidden to see each other so they spend most of their time trading glances, until they decide to sneak around behind her brother’s back.

The book ended with them hooking up at Rose’s new place. That was it. After Drew got hit by a truck, he decides to push Rose away. Then he ends his partnership with her brother and seeks her out again.

The end.

That was a little disappointing because I think that there should have been more of a story surrounding her brother and his feelings about their relationship. The whole point of why they spent years staying away from each other and then sneaking around because they didn’t know how her brother would react and all we got was an ultimatum, him trying to prevent her from moving out and that was it. That entire conflict lasted about an entire chapter.

I never understand the point of novellas. Trying to fit so much into such a confined space. There was a lot missing from this story and so it left me wanting more.

That’s all for now.

Talk to you later.
