Love Me, Love My Bullet Journal

Remember when I used to hate-watch Bullet Journal videos last year? Part of the reason why I was so mean to the people in the BuJo community was because they seemed to be way too pre-occupied with making their planners as pretty as possible, without even considering the point of being functional. I was sick and tired of the endless…

Bimonthly Goals: Jan-Feb 2018

So…how was your New Year’s celebration? I took the whole New Year’s Weekend off for a much-needed weekend of rest and recreation. There were also a few things that happened over the week (more on that later) but for the most part I had a great start to the new year. Because of this, I’ve decided to level up on…

End-of-The-Year Goals, December 2017

If you’ve been following this blog in its last few days on Blogger, you may have noticed that I didn’t do a Bimonthly Goals post for November and December. And it’s easy to see why: between revising my novel for NaNoWriMo and setting up the new website, my November slate was pretty much full. No reading (except for Miren Flores’…

Manifesting Your Dreams

Let me tell you a story of how a simple question can lead to an extraordinary idea. Several months ago on Twitter, we had a Q & A session with actor Migs Almendras, who’s also one of our live readers for #romanceclass. For some reason, I was feeling pretty naughty that night, so I thought I’d ask a funny question.…

Bimonthly Goals: September to October

Whew. Time flew by these last two months, didn’t they? As I mentioned earlier last month, I drafted my last Bimonthly Goals post without knowing that I would get my #romanceclass2017 notes so soon.  When I did get those notes, everything that I’d intended to work on, including outlines and revisions, were left unfinished. It wasn’t an easy journey, since I was…

Bimonthly Goals: July to August

(A glimpse into the future.)  Now that I’m back from my break, I’d like to talk about a few things that I’ve learned about myself in the last two weeks.  I decided to start with a Bimonthly Goals post because I needed a fresh start after the disappointment I faced last month. It goes without saying that I didn’t meet…

A Change of Plans

I never thought I’d write about this so soon after going through my bimonthly goals, but here goes: I received some news about a project that I’ve been waiting to work on since the beginning of the year. I’m not going to say what it is–I’ve only shared this with family and close friends–but it has thrown everything that I’ve…

Bimonthly Goals: May to June

ICYMI: Today’s your last chance to get Crushingly Close for 99 cents on Amazon! Get it now! Hey guys, I was supposed to post this last week, but my sister and brother were here for my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary and we’d spent two weeks hanging out together so I wasn’t able to sit down and write a detailed update.…

Bimonthly Goals: March to April

*cue “Versace On The Floor”*  Before I begin, let’s look at how I did with my bimonthly goals for January and February, shall we? – Finish #romanceclass2017 manuscript: Done! I finished at around 37k, but it went up to 43k after rewrites based on beta reader feedback. Apparently I’m an under-writer, and I have to work on that. – Write…
