“Are you a witch?”

I don’t know if anyone has ever directly asked me this question, but they skirt around it pretty neatly. The tl;dr answer is yes. I can’t really tell you when it happened, but I definitely know why. I found Buddhism first, in December 2011, and it probably wasn’t until after college that I started exploring […]

TTT: Single-Word Titles

I definitely did not realize how difficult this week’s That Artsy Read Girl topic was going to be for Top Ten, but damn, okay. I made it even harder on myself by only choosing books I definitely wanted to shout about, too, which meant I was skipping past quite a few. And uh, yeah, let’s […]

February Wrap-Up

Well, February was just not my month. I struggled with reading big time, and after an entire week of reading literally nothing, I decided to binge the entire Heartstopper series, which is even worse since I’ve already read everything, so here I am, ignoring my problems in favor of gay boys. I feel like that’s […]

NaNoWriMo, Week 4 Update

I did it! I’m really pleased with myself not for just reaching 50k, but for not putting it off and then being forced to write an exorbitant amount in the last week like I did last year. I’m happy that I made a plan and stuck with it, which I’m not always great to when […]

NaNoWriMo Thoughts: To Love or to Hate Writing

I’ve got a few things to talk about in today’s post. We’ll chat about determination vs motivation, seasonal writing, age categories, and doubt, but they all kind of neatly tie in together, so rather than writing separate posts, here we are with a mishmash! First, The Orangutan Librarian wrote a super relatable post recently about […]

NaNoWriMo, Week 3 Update

This has been the longest week of my life, and I’m really not sure how I managed to hit my weekly goal, but y’all, we’re in the home stretch now. Monday Am I ever going to write on a Monday? I was about to say probably not, but apparently I wrote 8k last Monday, wow, […]
