Happy New Year! I know everyone’s saying it, but wow, 2020, am I right? That was–something. And that’s all I really want to say about it. ICYMI, I wrapped up my 2020 goals a couple days ago, so make sure to check that out, and I’ve got some big plans, as always, for the year. […]

December Wrap-Up

It’s the end of the world as we know it! Oi, I’d almost take a Grey Havens ship into the West at this point. It’s really become a cry or laugh type of laugh, you know? Anyway, there’s been so much wrapping up in the last few weeks, so ICYMI, here are my top five […]

Goals Wrap-Up

The end is nigh, folks! 2021 is coming, and who the hell knows what it’s got in store, but I’m going to try to be ready for whatever it is. We’re at the end of another year, which means my blog looks like literally every other person’s right now–so many wrap-ups, top ten reads, and […]

An Adventure in Tolkien: Return of the King

Previously on An Adventure in Tolkien: Can someone please explain to me why I managed to cry about Morgoth IN A BOOK WHERE HE DOESN’T EXIST?! Tudo bem, before we begin, we’ve got to talk about the thing that happened to me. This is only eight seconds of a 4:44 clip of Sean Astin not […]

Current Projects: Fourth Edition

Wow, it has been a minute since I wrote the third edition of this post. Like, I wrote an entire duology that wasn’t even on the list since the last one was posted.

#marywrites: Foreshadowing

I am never, ever going to get over Noah Czerny introducing himself by way of I’ve been dead for seven years AND NO ONE BELIEVING HIM.

#NaNoWriMo: Week Four

I can’t believe it’s the last week of NaNo! I know that the last day of November is next week, but this wrap-up will come on Thursday because I’m going to visit my best friend on Friday (don’t worry, it’s a private residence, and we don’t go anywhere but her couch) and won’t get back […]

#NaNoWriMo: Week Three

I can’t believe I’m drafting this on a Saturday, but now that my characters have been reunited, I’m hella excited about writing, and I just want all the romance. This story is, first and foremost, a romance, and my characters have been separated for the first half of the book–which, I saw a tweet recently […]
