TTT: Facts About My Writing

Sometimes I write down ideas for posts, but I don’t actually write down anything except facts about my writing, and then when it comes time to write the actual post, I’m just sitting here blankly, like, what the hell does that even mean? I have a vague sense of what I was intending for this […]

#marywrites The Madhouse Savasana Story

Yoga is weird.  Even when you’re just doing yoga to do yoga, it’s weird.  I mean, think about it.  Traditionally, yoga was done to prepare the body to sit in one place for hours on end so that meditation could be physically comfortable.  Now, though we’ve bastardized it a lot, yoga is still kind of […]

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 […]

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.

Character Spotlight: Mason

Character Spotlights were a weekly Wednesday series where I used to talk about characters from the novels I was working on or had already completed, but they kind of fell by the wayside, as these things do sometimes. I’m not actually bringing them back weekly, but I’d like to bring them back semi-regularly because they […]

Quarterly Check-In

It’s that time of year! Instead of checking in halfway through the year, I like to do two quarterly check-ins and a final wrap-up at the end of the year to look at how I’m doing on the goals that I set in January. I’ve found that this, for me, at least, is a super […]

This Novel was the Hardest One I've Ever Written

Last month, I finished my book! I’ve got to say, I’m pretty freaking proud of myself, and not just for the normal reasons. I’ve talked about this a little on the blog, but not for a while, and not in any real detail, so here goes. A little over three years ago, in December 2016, […]
