25k in 5 days (NaNoWriMo COMPLETED!)

Can I do it? I’m honestly not sure. When you read this, it will be Friday, but right now, it’s Monday, and I am exactly 25,936 words behind for NaNoWriMo.  One of two things is about to happen.  I’m either going to give up, or I’m going to write 25k words in 5 days.  And…

My 12-Year Novel is Done

I keep wanting to start this blog with, wow it’s been a long time!  But realistically, it’s only been a little over a week since I last posted. And wow, what a ride these past 10 days have been.  Shortly after the new year, I started editing Alex the Destroyer.  My dad is fantastic, and prints…

2018 Goals

Happy New Year! 2017 was a wild year, full of a lot of unexpected things.  It was a hugely emotional year, and though I’m happy to leave it behind, I’m also happy to have experienced all of it.  I hope that 2018 brings just as much balance as the year before did, or more. In…

Part 2 is done! & #nanowhy wrap-up

I realize it’s only been one day since my last post, and only two since my last time talking about Saints, but a lot happened today! First: part two is done!  Two days ago, I hit a really incredible milestone of 100k words, and I was super stoked about it.  For some reason, reaching that…

nano why

Yes, that title does refer to NaNoWriMo.  No, I am not participating.  Kind of.  (Warning: this also somehow turned into a blog about anxiety.) Last night was The Used!  It was as surreal as I thought it was going to be, and maybe even a little more.  It was very weird in a wonderful way. …

Tomorrow is going to be surreal as heck.

Today is Monday, November 6th.  I am currently working my way through the entirety of The Used’s discography because tomorrow, on the 7th, I’m going to see them live for the first time ever.  I still can’t really wrap my head around the fact that that’s really happening.  If they don’t play Buried Myself Alive, I…

Letting Go is Hard

I’ve tried to write this blog twice already–the post Alex blog. I know I only just posted the blog introducing him, but he and the Pen boys were novels I started while this blog was still private and primarily about Mason, and thus never really got to show the beginning.  Although, like I said in his…

We Need to Talk About Alex Hart

Fun fact: I haven’t seen that movie, but I really want to.  It looks like one of those movies that’s going to break my heart. Alex Hart. Where do I even begin? This blog is so that I can give insight into at least one writer’s insane mind, but I kind of messed up with the…

boys, boys, boys

All the boys. I know I just posted, but boys.  I have a lot of them (and a few girls, I promise), and if any of this is going to make sense, I need to explain who they are.  Prepare yourself.  I’m not kidding when I say there are a lot.  I’m also linking all of…
