Mini rant 😅 I believe the above image is why so many authors stress out about writing. After English teachers have convinced them their writing has to mean something to mean anything. It's one of the many things that kept me down about my own writing for so long. AND just because an author doesn't… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 16
This month has been nuts! Even though I took a vacation from work, I don't feel rested at all! And don't have nearly enough writing to show for it. But, hey! At least I got some spring cleaning done! As far as the writing goes. It's going! And I hope I've found a way to… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 15
Sorry this is so late! After publishing, I needed a break from things. Back on track now! Back to writing, going to get some giveaway's going soon. I designed and purchased some SWAG; bookmark and stickers! Lots of things to do and catch up on. Can't wait! Querying: Not Querying for the foreseeable future. Current… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for April

How do I marry being… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 12

A couple months ago she started a weekly writing vlog series showing her process while she drafted a new manuscript. During this vlog she talked a lot, and I'd heard her mention it before but didn't take much notice… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 8
I love writing but it might be the death of me. After finishing book 2 of my dragon series, I realized it was time to give book 1 a new name. That's where I'm going to start this post so I can easily reference it (SPOILER: I never reference it LOL) FROM STARS, COME DRAGONS… Continue reading If I die, my book did it. Meet my murders.
I'm so bad at sharing. I constantly think about wanting to share my thoughts or quotes from my WIPs or collages I've made from the pictures I've collected on Pinterest or any number of other things. But as soon as it comes time to actually make the decision to share it, 99% of the time,… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 4
