February into March (Contest–and more contests!)
Monday, February 28th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is Jen B!


After a very successful January, I had big goals for February. My actual results are a little mixed. I have great excuses. Always do. But here’s what I did accomplish on my goal list…


  1. I published my short story from the Cowboys anthology as a single short story release, “Hunk of Burning Love.” It’s currently FREE in Kindle Unlimited, but I also offered it as a FREE direct download as my Valentine’s Day gift to you.
  2. I completed 4 editing projects in February, including two long novels!
  3. I did NOT write a book—only a few pages, actually—which was my only disappointing progress this month.


  1. I continued with Weight Watchers and can proudly say that I’ve lost 18.6 pounds as of today! I’m not pushing to lose fast because I like how I feel. Slow is good!
  2. I’ve been paying attention to my step count. It’s not stellar, but the fact that I’m looking at it means something to my brain.


  1. I began working on the #100DayProject art challenge! It’s my third year participating, and yes, it’s HARD fitting in play time at my art table but sooooo fulfilling. Here are some samples of what I’ve done so far…


Here’s me putting this out in the world…


 No Tender Mercy

For work-related, I plan:

  1. To write and publish the next Texas Vampires novella, No Tender Mercy. (Have you pre-ordered your copy?!) No dilly-dallying. This will be done!
  2. To get close to “Done” with my next romantic suspense story.
  3. To prepare a new box set of the three Danger Zone books and publish it!
  4. To complete 4 editing projects in March!

For health-related, I plan:

  1. To continue with Weight Watchers and hope to lose at least 5 pounds. Slow is good!
  2. To begin some low-impact aerobics, which will include a video workout for old people (I’m not old, and my joints aren’t effed, but I like the low-impact part!), plus, I’ll add some outdoor activities, like pool maintenance and blowing the patio—counting the things I should already be doing to get ready for pool season. All of them burn calories and build muscle. Guess I should count housework, too. Blech.

For happiness-related, I plan: 

  1. To continue working on getting my art room better organized, because I plan…
  2. To produce something art-related every day for the #100DayProject art challenge!

    I am cleaning up my craft room this month! It is going to take so much work but I’ll be so happy when it’s done so I can actually work on projects.

    Slow is good when it comes to weight loss. A better chance of keeping it off and going in the right direction.

    Thanks, everyone, for your comments!

    Colleen, reading is always the right answer. 🙂

    Jen B, if I waited to get my craft room just right, I’d never get a thing done! LOL

    Miki, you’re already starting on your Christmas gift? Makes me curious about what it is!!

    Debra, it’s the only weight loss program that has ever worked for me. The hard part is sticking with it. So far, so good.

    The winner of the gift card is…Jen B!
