Saints at sea is done!

It’s been a little over three months since I started the adventure that is Saints at sea, and it’s done.  It’s wrapped up at 102k words, 28 chapters, and one helluva cliffhanger.  It’s not quite the cliffhanger that the end of the first Saints is (because damn, I’m sorry), but it drops a neat little bomb […]

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 […]

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 […]

current projects: second edition

When I first made this blog public, I posted something titled boys, boys, boys.  It was a list of all the projects that I was currently working on in my head, and I posted it in July of 2017.  Suffice to say, a lot has happened since then, and that list has changed quite a […]

read the words, don’t write them

It’s officially been a week since I wrapped on Saints 2.  And I’m going to level with you, it’s been tough not having them.  There’s been a few times in this last week that I honestly almost just threw all my plans to the wind and started in on Saints at sea. If you follow […]

Saints 2 is done! + life updates & what’s next

Sometimes, I get into these moods where I’m like YES. PEN BOYS. TEEN ANGST. BOYYYYYS. OLIVER I MISS YOU. And then I listen to Ghost on the Shore by Lord Huron, and I’m transported back into my love of Henry and I want to write Saints at sea RIGHT NOW. Most of the time right […]

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 […]

On Editing!

It’s been nearly a week since I finished editing the Pen boys, and since then, I’ve had a very relaxing handful of days.  I finished editing on Friday, and I spent most of the weekend with my parents.  I usually spend Saturdays with them, and this weekend was no exception, though my day was a […]

That’s all, folks.

In the last 10 days since I posted on here, I’ve edited the entirety of the Pen boys, and let me tell you, I’m freaking tired.  When I started out, the first draft of Pen boys–and I’m really talking the first draft; I kind of edited it along the way, but like, not really at all–was […]
