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!
Writing has been a...really interesting endeavor, recently. A lot of battling back and forth with my own mind, trying to decide whether I'm actually shit or if I'm borderline brilliant (because my brain doesn't have any go-between, apparently).

Jumping right back in, regardless of how desperately you need to or how much you really want to fix that one scene that's been nagging at you since chapter three. By… Continue reading The Itch
If you're a writer, these terms have a lot of meaning to you. If you're not, these terms could still have a lot of meaning to you. They are pretty simple, definition wise. A pantser is someone who likes to live on the edge, to "wing it," to figure things out as they go. A… Continue reading Pantser vs. Plotter: Living In-Between
I originally titled this post "Surviving" NaNoWriMo, but then something pulled me away from my computer, thus forcing me away and causing me to revisit this post for another day.
