Kangaroo Too

Anschutz Command Center 10 minutes after I wished the book wasn't over I read Kangaroo Too in two days. (Well, two and half, technically, but two sounds much more impressive and dramatic, so we're just going with that.) There were a lot of factors, I think, that played into why I read this book so quickly and… Continue reading Kangaroo Too

Insights With Editing

I don't think there is any "correct" way to edit your novel. You just gotta find what works best for you in that given moment or that given manuscript and continue to strive to create the best story you can. That said, I've discovered some interesting differences editing ARTEMIS for the second time than my… Continue reading Insights With Editing

One of the Neatest Things

Since last November, I've lost 19 pounds. That's something I never thought I'd write, let alone be my reality. It is...one of the neatest things. Part of me wants to apologize for even writing this post, because how braggy can someone get? Yet if you've ever stumbled upon this blog or have followed it for… Continue reading One of the Neatest Things

Quest for Happiness: Week Twenty Four

Fitness: Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier. Last Week’s Goal: Workout 5x and eat well. Status: I'm counting it. I did manage to workout five times and ate pretty well, though I sorta fell off that bandwagon over the weekend. But I'm still stoked about it and ready to continue improving this week. This Week’s Goal: Workout… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Twenty Four

The Bloodsworn

**Copy of The Bloodsworn by Erin Lindsey graciously given by Literary Agent Lisa Rodgers in exchange for an honest review** "Not for you."  *commence endless screaming* I realize you have no idea regarding the significance of that line, thrown in out of context like that.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish where a different theme is posted each week and book bloggers… Continue reading Top Ten Series on the Back-burner

Frankly, I Have No Idea What to Title This Post

There's a line from Twenty One Pilot's "Migraine" that says, "Sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind." I really love that line. I also wish they gave advice on how to do just that. I'm an over-thinker. A worrywart, as my companions and parents growing up dubbed me. I've always been this way. I… Continue reading Frankly, I Have No Idea What to Title This Post
