Tag: Spring Cleaning

I saw this over on The Orangutan Librarian, and since I’m also trying to avoid spring cleaning my bookshelves, I thought it’d be fun to avoid them in the same way–with this fun tag! We may end up having the same answer to one of these, too, because I got all ranty in the comments […]

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 […]

Goals Check-In

Oh, hi! I can’t believe it’s already April! Because doing halfway check-ins stress me the heck out, I like to do quarterly ones on my goals, so here we are, a quarter way through the year, checking in on my 2021 goals. ICYMI, here are the goals themselves, none of which I actually remember, and […]

TTT: Bookish Witches

If you don’t think I have an entire shelf dedicated to books with witchy MCs, think again. Witches are my favorite characters to read about, which is probably just because I want to see myself reflected in books, and they’re also, unsurprisingly, my favorite characters to write about. It’s going to be a while since […]

Why I’m No Longer Talking About Writing

I recognize that this title is misleading, especially given more than half of the posts that I put up, but I promise it’s going to make sense by the end of this post. I can take myself right back to high school, handing out spiralbound copies of my book to literally any friend that would […]

Tag: Confessions of a Tea Drinker

My birthday is on the 29th, but I’ve already got a very Mary-specific post for next Monday, so here we are celebrating early! This weekend, we’re having a tea party, and whatever you’re thinking of, amplify the hell out of that. I got a gorgeous polka dot dress for it, white lace gloves, and my […]

TTT: Funny Book Titles

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is one of those ones that sound fun and easy, but then you actually get down to writing the post, and it’s surprisingly difficult! I mostly just wanted to list Fall Out Boy songs, but that would be long titles and not always necessarily funny–plus, you know, not […]

Magic Systems Need Rules

No matter who you are, you can think of a book that has a magic system that completely disregards all sense and just doesn’t have rules. Heck, who knows, you may find this refreshing, but I think I’m in the majority when I say that that kind of writing immediately takes me out of a […]

TTT: Favorite Women Characters That I’ve Written

And we’re back! Last week, ICYMI, I talked about my favorite men characters that I’ve written, and since I just have too many amazing characters, I figured I’d split them up so we could take a look at twenty of my favorite characters. Do I love my own writing a lot? HECK YES, that’s the […]

How Character Preferences Change Over Years

I can so take myself back to thirteen-year-old Mary and all of the clearly Mary Sue characters that she loved to now, despairing over the fact that no one will just give Morgoth a damn hug even though he would utterly throttle anyone that tried. And it’s probably pretty indicative of what age we are […]
