5 Books in 7 Days!

I’m going on vacation this weekend, and I’ve decided to set myself a little challenge.  I have Friday off with only one thing to do, and then it’s up to Vermont Saturday afternoon until Tuesday morning.  I have so many books that I keep almost picking up, and I keep getting FOMO—-fear of missing out. …

July Reads

This has just been the most chaotic month of my life, and honestly, thank heck for books.  Somehow, amidst everything else that was going on, I managed to read a heck ton of books, and I’m pretty sure I might have needed to be committed without them.  Enjoy! What: The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw When:…

Does anyone know what I’m doing?

Because I don’t. Like, honestly, truly, what is going on? Let’s go back in time a little.  I know I haven’t been blogging about my writing a lot.  There have been other things—-the weight loss blog, the tea blog (finally!), the wrap-up for June reads, but none of those things are writing things.  Back in…

I Want to Read ALL THE BOOKS (at the same time)

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…

The Tea Blog!

Finally!  How has it taken me this long to write this blog?  This is absurd.  If I tried to post all of the pictures of me reading/writing with tea, we would literally be here forever.  Drinking tea is my number one favorite thing to do when it comes to words, whether I’m writing or reading…

The Weight Loss Blog, Part I

Welcome to the first of a mini-series on this blog.  No, this is not technically writing-related, but fitness is a huge part of my life, and a lot of the time, those annoying little plot points figure themselves out while I’m in the middle of working out.  Thus, I wanted to start sharing my journey…

June Reads

This has been a slow month, both for reading and writing.  I haven’t been posting much, either, because just not a whole lot is going on in my creative life right now.  I watched the first season of Lost in Space, binged YouTube consistently, and pretty much fangirled about space for a few weeks in a…

Writing is not always glamorous

Nearly two weeks ago, my last post talked about accidental novels.  I’d introduced these three new characters in Saints at sea, and I had all these grand ideas about a prequel novel for their adventures before we get to Saints at sea.  It was exciting, and I was plugging away at Saints at sea, putting…

Accidental Novels

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…

May Reads

What a month this has been!  I’ve done a lot of reading and writing both, and I’m very pleased with where I am in both aspects.  I’m finally not behind on my Goodreads goal again, and Saints at sea is coming so easily.  I don’t have a lot of rambling to do, so without further…
