TTT: Super Long Titles

I truly did not realize how hard this week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic was going to be. Like, come on, folks, get with the Fall Out Boy program. OH LORD, I saw this meme the other day, hold please. I found that way faster than I thought I was going to. I was going […]

TCHAU, VERÃO! Gosh, I’m so glad to send summer right out the door and welcome in the best season ever: SPOOKY AUTUMN! It’s going to be so much fun, and I have so many exciting plans that I’m just bursting with joy over here. I wasn’t able to sleuth my way into figuring out who […]

Quarterly Check-In

I want to say that I am holy hell shocked that we’re here at the second quarterly check-in of goals, but this year is basically stuck in the space time continuum and doing whatever the hell it wants, so this honestly makes sense. It’s September? What??? ICYMI, I like to do two quarterly check-ins with […]

August Wrap-Up

What a damn good month! It’s been a hellishly long time since I had this many five and four star reads, and I’m just so stoked. I’m also 0% surprised that nearly all of these were fantasy. I read Fellowship of the Ring this month, and it just made me crave fantasy so much that […]

July Wrap-Up

This was a weird month for me, not gonna lie. I’ll talk about it more at the end, but I’m consistently feeling like I did nothing while actually having done a lot, so. I think a lot of that stems from the fact that I feel like I didn’t read a lot, but three of […]

Review: All Souls Trilogy

This review is just going to be straight chaos from start to finish. I’m going to try very hard to stay focused, but I’m going to dissolve pretty quickly into shouting about the misogyny in this trilogy, so you’ve been warned. As always, the tl;dr of this review is I liked this series at the […]

#marywrites: From Conception to First Draft

I haven’t written a brand new story in over a year. Truthfully, for the past two years, I’ve mostly been working on the same story. I took a little break in between to write a standalone contemporary about two best friends falling in love in a bookstore, which I promise you’ll get to read someday, […]

Why I Love Vampires & Want Them to Come Back

It should be no surprise to anyone lately that I absolutely adore vampires. I don’t read a lot of books starring vampires because I’ve found most of the modern versions of this dark and mysterious creature are pretty poorly done, but I want to read more. They’re one of my favorite monsters that go bump […]

#marywrites: Research

A couple weeks ago, we talked about outlines and how important they can be. Outlines are not for everyone, and it’s totally cool if you’re not into them, but research? Yeah, that’s pretty much a requirement for everyone. For this topic, I’m going to be focusing on one of my characters, Rafael Vilar, who stars […]

#marywrites: Outlines

I think I talk about writing a fair amount on the blog, and while I recognize that most of what I talk about is reading, I’m trying to actively talk more about writing since I’ve got some goals this year. Edit sister witches 1 & 2 into final drafts. Write the first draft of sister […]
