Some Erlebnisse Musings

About a year ago (I think? I honestly can't remember, but it's been a while), I started a separate blog dedicated to my quirky book reviews, called Erlebnisse. I started it because I'd written a few reviews on this site, though they didn't really follow your proper review format. More like ravings and rantings over… Continue reading Some Erlebnisse Musings

Quest for Happiness: Week Forty Two

Fitness: Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier. Last Week’s Goal: Keep working out and enjoying this nice weather while it lasts. Make something new to eat this week. Status: Halfway! I ran/walked 3x last week, which isn't too shabby at all. Ate pretty well until the weekend (*shrug* I'm getting there) and didn't end up… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Forty Two


Something Beautiful

This book was a whirlwind, for me, so I apologize if this review is a bit all over the place. Let me start off with a story. This book, Something Beautiful, was written by one of my awesome Twitter friends, Amanda Gernentz Hanson. We've been friends since before this book was published and out in the world.… Continue reading Something Beautiful

ArcaniA: The Complete Tales: A Review

**So, I started writing this post almost a year ago, but never finished it. It's a game I really wanted to actually write a proper review for, so I'm finishing it now. It doesn't get all the details that I wanted to capture, fresh from playing it, but hey, you win some and you lose… Continue reading ArcaniA: The Complete Tales: A Review

Finally: A Writing Update

I started writing a new book last week. I was both really excited and really nervous about it. Excited because working on the outline for the novel helped me figure out a lot of details and really understand the story that I want to tell, not to mention the characters who are going to be… Continue reading Finally: A Writing Update

Quest for Happiness: Week Forty One

Fitness: Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier. Last Week’s Goal: Keep it up. Status: Success! Combo of running and walking last week, plus ate pretty well. Period hit over the weekend, though, so that definitely wasn't the best, eating or working out wise, but I'm hormonal, cramping and bleeding. I think I can cut myself… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Forty One


Tales of Aerothos: Knights of the Wolf

What an interesting read. I mean interesting in a good way (you know how sometimes you use that word when you're trying to be polite and don't know how else to do it? Yeah, that's not how I'm using it here, I just wasn't sure how to start the blog post and that's the best I could… Continue reading Tales of Aerothos: Knights of the Wolf

The Priority of Time

Looking up some quotes for another blog post this week, I stumbled across this one: That...really hit me hard. Everyone gets 24 hours in a day. It's not an uncommon mantra for people to complain about--still--not having enough time in the day to get everything done that you want to. I know I certainly do.… Continue reading The Priority of Time

Obtaining Feedback: A Query

In order to understand this post, I'm gonna need you to read this post. It's by Chuck Wendig, who, if you're familiar with his blog, always writes really awesome posts, told through colorful language, containing webs upon webs of wonderful tangents. If you don't have time to read his entire post but what to know what… Continue reading Obtaining Feedback: A Query

My Desire To Be More

One of the coolest things, I've found, about your own personality and your own existence as a human is how the process of discovering ourselves and growing into the person we want to be never ceases. There is always the opportunity to better yourself and change aspects you don't like, heightened the things you do… Continue reading My Desire To Be More
