Goals Check-In

Oh, hi! I can’t believe it’s already April! Because doing halfway check-ins stress me the heck out, I like to do quarterly ones on my goals, so here we are, a quarter way through the year, checking in on my 2021 goals. ICYMI, here are the goals themselves, none of which I actually remember, and […]

Why I’m No Longer Talking About Writing

I recognize that this title is misleading, especially given more than half of the posts that I put up, but I promise it’s going to make sense by the end of this post. I can take myself right back to high school, handing out spiralbound copies of my book to literally any friend that would […]

March Wrap-Up

It’s that time of the year! My birthday is at the end of March, which I’ll talk about at the end of this long wrap-up, but it means a lot of books received, a lot of tea drunk, way more pastries than normal, going completely off the rails with my reading, and just basically celebrating […]

#marywrites The Rónán Story

I can remember it clear as day–thirteen, hanging upside down off my friend’s bed while they succumbed to a bean bag, another friend sitting cross-legged on the bed, all three of us talking about the books we were going to write, the interviews we would do with each other, the future of fame and household […]

TTT: Favorite Women Characters That I’ve Written

And we’re back! Last week, ICYMI, I talked about my favorite men characters that I’ve written, and since I just have too many amazing characters, I figured I’d split them up so we could take a look at twenty of my favorite characters. Do I love my own writing a lot? HECK YES, that’s the […]

February Wrap-Up

I don’t know how this is possible, and I’m not going to question it at all, but all of my books were five star reads this month, and I am living. Granted, I reread two books that I know I love, including–get ready, this is the first of four times I will shout about it–preparing […]

TTT: Favorite Men Characters That I’ve Written

I think it’s safe to say that this is going to be my favorite post I’ve ever written. Possibly also the hardest? On one hand, it’s definitely because I love talking about my own characters, and they make me stupid squeal at any given moment. But, on the other, I can’t wait for all of […]

#marywrites Books That Inspired My Books

I think I’ve told the Saintsverse story a million times now–I read the Crows duology over the course of a couple weeks, and when I went to bed one fateful Sunday, it was after finishing Crooked Kingdom. When I woke up, after my usual dreamless sleep, there was a name in my mouth–Landon Ash. I […]

#marywrites: Introspection

Turnabout is fair play, right? Recently, I was reading for my CP, and I was starting to sound like a really annoying broken record that you kind of want to throw out the window. “Introspection!” I kept yelling, “We need more introspection!” The character wasn’t meant to be liked, but I also didn’t care about […]

January Wrap-Up

Wow, I’m tired. And what a month. I managed to read 4/5 TBR books, and I would have gotten the fifth done no problem if it weren’t for the overwhelming nature of getting a new job that actually trusts me enough to give me work to do. SHOCKING, I KNOW. Anyway, I don’t want to […]
