Hello lovelies!

Welcome to the new year! I hope your 2023 was great and that your 2024 starts off strong!

Last year was a rollercoaster of a year for me, so there wasn't a lot that I was able to accomplish like I intended. While I wasn't able to do many writing goals, I was able to take care of myself through my impending divorce, so I'm calling the year a win for me.

Let's go over the goals from last year to this year...


My goal for 2023 was to write as much as I could, including publishing the second Star Struck novella, Somebody to Adore. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to write or publish anything new. On the bright side, I did do a lot of outlining and replotting stories, as well as come up with some new stories and series ideas that I'm excited to write.

For 2024, I do want to write and publish Somebody to Adore. I've reworked the outline into something that flows better than my original plan. There are several other ideas that I'm playing around with, too. I also have something holiday related I'm going to be writing on the side. More on that soon!


My Goodreads Reading Challenge for 2023 was 27 books, but I had to reduce it to 12 with everything that was going on in my life. I really miss reading as much as I used to, so I'm hoping that I can achieve 27 in 2024. There are several books I'm really excited to read, including both fiction and non-fiction.

This year will also be the year I move out on my own again, so I would like to spend time making my apartment into a home. I have a bunch of things to decorate and also lots of ideas to make the place beautiful. My aim is to get into a place by March, so wish me luck there!


My word for 2023 was DETERMINATION. While some aspects of the word didn't come to fruition, others definitely did! I managed to push through one of the hardest times in my life and somehow come out a lot stronger than I thought I ever could. Friends and family surely did help along the way, and for that I'm eternally grateful.

When deciding on a word for 2024, I had trouble narrowing it down, so I decided to go with the four that felt like they suited best. Here they are:


They really cover what I'd like my 2024 to be. I want to EMERGE from my cocoon, make PROGRESS toward my goals, RISE above the ashes, and simply THRIVE in my life.

Have a great year!
