This past Saturday was September 1st! Hogwarts is full once again with bright young witches and wizards, and I was full of pastries. My absolute favorite tea shop ever, Jolie Tea Co. in Salem, hosted a themed high tea on Saturday featuring their new Harry Potter tea line, and it was the most magical thing… Continue reading Jolie’s Harry Potter Tea Review
Alright, it's Wednesday. Yesterday, I kicked off my reading challenge (5 books in 7 days) with The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner, and for the last 200 pages, I've basically just been going UGH EUGENIDES. My friend, Alex, was the one to turn me onto these books after I kept picking up The Thief over and… Continue reading Reading Challenge (kind of) CRUSHED
Alright, I'm not lying when I say I am Rory Gilmore. You know that scene where Rory's packing her backpack for school, and she can't fit all of her books? This scene. I'm seriously not even lying--this is me. When I go away on vacation, I always bring, at minimum, three books, and that's only if… Continue reading I Want to Read ALL THE BOOKS (at the same time)

It was exciting, and I was plugging away at Saints at sea, putting… Continue reading Writing is not always glamorous
Has this ever happened to you? Because this happens to me a lot. I'm not even joking. I used to say to my mom, "Oh crap, I didn't mean to kill that character. Oh well, they're dead now, I guess." And she'd just be like, "But you're writing it? Just change it?" But that's not… Continue reading Accidental Novels
It's officially been a week since I wrapped on Saints 2. And I'm going to level with you, it's been tough not having them. There's been a few times in this last week that I honestly almost just threw all my plans to the wind and started in on Saints at sea. If you follow… Continue reading read the words, don’t write them
