Outlining in Trello

Outlining in Trello

I first heard about Trello a few years ago. I was becoming interested in project management, and it is a free Project Management website and app. You can sign up for a free account if you want to try it. *This post is not sponsored.*

Write Your Novel From the Middle by James Scott Bell

Write Your Novel From the Middle by James Scott Bell

I recently read Write Your Novel From the Middle. I had seen this years ago, but laughed at it. I actually laughed. Here I am now wishing I hadn’t, and instead picked it up when I first saw it. Even though the process for outlining a story has changed for me, there are some good points in here and key structure points which would have helped me even then.

April TBR

April TBR

I have no expectation to actually read all the books in this list, but I was unable to participate in Becca’s Bookopoly readathon which I think was last weekend. I had fun the last time she put one of these on, and was especially bummed this time, because she had live streams going the whole time with the help of a few hosts. Since I didn’t join in the Bookopoly readathon, and things are a bit crazy and taking up much of my time, I thought I would join in her April Bookopoly TBR. The way I’m going to work this, is for each roll she did for her April TBR, similar to the Bookopoly Readathon, I will pick a book to go with the prompt.

2021 Quarter 2 Goals

2021 Quarter 2 Goals

I don’t usually, at least lately, make quarterly goals, but it is something I want to get back to. I think it helps me focus in on and define what is priority for me. Making them quarterly instead of monthly, also helps with some flexibility when one month goes sideways and things just go crazy inserting themselves in to your day and taking up your time. The quarterly timeframe just works well for me because it’s also not trying to see too far in to the future. Annual just seems to be too hard to stick to because something will change, or something happens and my priorities change.

Sunday Post #81: BEDA and More

Here we are in 2021, and I still haven’t really been reading. I have a certification I’m trying to get through work and have been reading for that. It’s not fun reading for this certification. It does though, make me want to read for fun. I’ve started a few books and once again have multiple…

These Books Will Self-Destruct | 2021

These Books Will Self-Destruct | 2021

I’ve seen Booktubers do something like this, but I’m changing it. On this list, yes are books I’ve had on my TBR for a while, but additionally, these are all books I’ve picked up, started reading, then put down for one reason or another and never picked up again.

Sunday Post #80: Things be tense

Sunday Post #80: Things be tense

I can’t stop myself from watching the news, and then this helpless feeling comes over me. I live in the United States, in the state of Michigan. Our states, more and more feel like the Divided States, more than the United States. I remember in school learning, or at least being told, the founders totally…

Sunday Post #79: Basement update

We’ve been busy on the basement project. We almost have a new, to code, gas line in for the dryer – we ran into an unforseen issue with the previous pipe. I hung, all by myself, one sheet of drywall. (Very proud of myself for that since I don’t have a lot of experience hanging…

November Wrap Up & December TBR

November Wrap Up & December TBR

Well, as mentioned in this week’s Sunday Post, I haven’t finished a single book in November. I did listen to a few audiobooks, but they were books I’ve listened to at least a dozen times before and didn’t really pay attention to. I mostly used them for noise. For some reason, nothing really is calling…
