#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 […]

OWLs Magical Readathon TBR

It’s official! OWLs are back, and not a moment too soon. I think everyone would agree that a magical readathon is exactly what we all need right now, and while I considered going hard just because I have some extra free time, I also need to respect the fact that my reading habits have changed […]

I found Buddhism first, in December 2011, and it probably wasn’t until after college that I started exploring […]
