I'm such a wannabe fan of this series. I quit reading it after the first book because it annoyed me so much. Then I tried book 2 after LOVING A Court of Thorns and Roses. Then quit halfway through book 4 because it bored me. All this, yet here I am wanting to connect with… Continue reading EpicReads Fun: Which combination of Throne of Glass characters are you?
I'll take it! I'm not a huge fan of the Throne of Glass series (actually haven't finished it yet lol) But I LOVE SJM and am obsessed with her A Court of Thorns and Roses series and would love to be on her level as an author! I love these quizzes. They are super silly,… Continue reading EpicReads Fun: Which YA Series Would You Have Written?
Things have just been crazy lately. Mostly because of my job. I'm pretty stressed with my workload so when I'm off for the day I don't want do much thinking. I've been doing better the last couple of days. Brainstormed a few ideas for short stories that got out of hand and can't be much… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 2
Recently, I discovered that I have absolutely no idea how to share my writing journey. My husband says my posts are great. No one else has complained about them, but I'm not happy with them. For example, my monthly updates are copy, paste, replace old info with new info, repeat. I think the structure of… Continue reading A new brand of writer’s block
I'm a slow reader. If I could devote all my free time to reading I could probably get through 4 books a month, but 2 is more realistic. Thing is, that's speed reading compared to what I used to read. When I couldn't read even 1 book in a year... Or a decade. It bothered… Continue reading My hate to love relationship with books
That was the most fun I've had in a long time 😀 Not only did I get to meet my favorite author, Mary E. Pearson (The Remnant Chronicles) but I also got to meet three other amazing authors I need to read!! Here's how the evening went. We live in Iowa, so it all… Continue reading My time at the Fierce Reads Author Event
My motivation today: when the work day ends, I'm on vacation until next Monday! Not that I'm going to be relaxing much, but a lot of fun will be had when it's over. And, hopefully, a lot of writing! Tonight, we're taking our son to his first 4-H meeting. Just a meet and greet, but… Continue reading Monday Motivation
OMG! Such a great writing week! I wrote around 7K words and expect to write at least that much this week 🙂 I wrote on my new WIP. Which, so far, only has an abbreviation, TDB. In my last monthly update, I let you know it was an epic high fantasy. I've always been a… Continue reading Writing, Goals, & Question: Weekly Update – Is my WIP Epic Fantasy, High Fantasy, or both?
I got some writing done last week, but there's nothing more than that to report. And since I didn't want to go without posting, because I like to share with you all and get your feedback and stuff, I thought I'd do something a little different. Here's an aesthetic I made for my main character,… Continue reading In lieu of a weekly update…
Seriously considered skipping this update. I was so unproductive last week. Please, someone, make me do things! I blame the weather. It was spring for a couple days. We even went disc golfing, it was so nice. Then... winter came back. We got several inches of snow and it killed my motivation to do anything.… Continue reading Writing & Goals: Weekly Update
