Hello, loves! Despite NaNoWriMo not officially ending for a few more days, I know I'm not going to win it this year. With three days left to write (at the time of writing this post), I am sitting at a nice 16,000 words and I don't think I'll add too many more before December hits.… Continue reading Today, I’m Thankful For Writing
Hello, lovelies! I am so excited to announce, after much deliberation and teeter-tottering, that I am going to be attempting NaNoWriMo this year! I won't lie: I've only ever won NaNoWriMo once (back in 2015), even though I've signed up multiple years with the purest of intentions to actually finish the novels I set out… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2019: Sequel, Here I Come!
Hey, querying writer. I see you. You've spent so long pouring your entire being into this manuscript, into your story, this precious piece of you. You had nights where the words flowed, your keys onslaught, your fingers cramping against the white-knuckle hold of your pencil as you struggle to keep up with the flow of… Continue reading Hey, Querying Writer: This Is For You

Hey, lovelies. So, I'm slowly getting back into the writing groove again. After struggling with some mental health stuff for...a while, I didn't realize that it had seeped into my confidence as a writer, as well. I've been editing one of my novels, Blood Price, this entire year. And though I make that claim, it's… Continue reading Let Go Of The Outcome
Hello, lovelies. So, this post is going to get personal and it's going to go everywhere, so... My mental health for the past few months has been...not great. But it's been a weird-not-great, in the sense that, it's not like I haven't been happy, per say. Because I have been. I've had a lot of… Continue reading Stuck in Limbo
