Rereading The Blood Mirror

Hello, lovelies! It is time for another Annotated Book Review! As you may know, I have been rereading the first four books in the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks for...an embarrassing amount of months (hint: this definitely started last year). Much longer than these books deserve, that's for certain. I hadn't ever reviewed the first two books,… Continue reading Rereading The Blood Mirror

More Than One Story

Hello, lovelies! I feel like this is going to get a little ramble-y, so please bear with me. The other day, I saw a discussion on Twitter about mothers in fantasy novels and how they either a) never exist or b) do exist, but can never go an adventure or do anything because they would… Continue reading More Than One Story

Write What You Love

Hello, lovelies! Today is Valentine's Day. Or Single Awareness Day. The day we use as an excuse to spent lots of money (or at least extra money) on those we love and buy overpriced chocolate that, at midnight, goes 75% off simply because hearts are printed on the packaging and don't you know we don't… Continue reading Write What You Love

I am so much happier in my… Continue reading Time: Humanity’s Worst Concept

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

NaNoWriMo 2019: Sequel, Here I Come!

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: This Is For You

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
