Yes, my timing is all off for quarterly updates. I posted in February for the end of March because I wasn't sure how I would be feeling after surgery. Thankfully, I am doing well. Our family, however, went through some unexpected challenges. My father-in-law fell in my home three days after my surgery. He spent all of March and April in the hospital or nursing home. God is good, though, and Dad is now home and getting around fairly well. He still has nurses and therapists coming in, but perhaps life will be more normal now.
I will let you decide if this is the late or early quarterly update.
Daily Bible verse reading.
Doing better with this, but still not every day. That said, I've been praying more regularly, so that's a plus.
Complete editing projects.
One is done. The other one took extra time because part of it needed to be entirely restructured. I should be done next week.
Complete Amelia's Mission by May 31st.
While this won't happen, I am part of a regular writing group that meets twice a month. I have one more chapter to share with them before I need to bring more in with me. We'll see how it goes.
Reconsider blogging duties.
I have worked so hard on these blogs, I hate to let any of them go. What I know is staying:
The Book Connection
The Children's and Teens' Book Connection
Blogging twice a month at Christian Children's Authors
What I am considering cutting or putting on hiatus:
The Busy Mom's Daily
Cheryl's Christian Book Connection
Books Can Be Deadly
I should know by the end of May what direction I am going in.
How are your writing goals going so far? What have you achieved? What are you struggling with?

Today I am blogging over at Christian Children's Authors on the topic of the Lord as our Shelter. Please visit: http://christianchildrensauthors.com/2015/04/03/the-lord-as-our-shelter/
I also ask you to pray for our family as we go through a series of trials. Thank you and God bless.

Once again I talk about the importance of praying for our children. This time, the topic is praying for our children in every season. Hope you'll visit at http://christianchildrensauthors.com/2015/03/20/praying-for-children-in-every-season/

My feelings on this subject definitely make our writing group interesting. Point of view is something I tend to focus on a great deal because hopping from head to head doesn't feel right. But other members disagree. They see tremendous value in using a point of view that knows all, sees all, and tells all.
Do you have a preference when you read or write?
