Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 48

Sometimes clichés are true. That writers are hermits who don't get enough sun. Cause apparently I have a Vitamin D deficiency (pause: please don't worry, everything is being taken care of and I am fine). My doctor said, "We don't want you getting rickets." Ah, yes, rickets. I could get rickets like a poor child … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 48

Reading and Writing Nooks for You to Drool Over (and perhaps create for yourself)

I have a bit of an interior design.....obsession. I redecorate for all four seasons (too many knick knacks anyone??) and due to spending so much time rearranging and redecorating, I am a pro at moving furniture by myself that I probably shouldn't be moving by myself (both for the furniture's sake and mine). Anywho. (Speaking … Continue reading Reading and Writing Nooks for You to Drool Over (and perhaps create for yourself)

1. Red Heart, Ice Mountain is done. What a monster. I finished at 145k words (we're gonna talk about the egregious length in a second) and totally rushed that ending but I JUST WANTED TO GET IT DONE. I've been working on this straight for almost four months. And I really wanted to start working … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 47

Vibe and Aesthetics Only (no plots allowed)

Writers get ideas for books in different ways. Sometimes plot comes first, sometimes characters, and sometimes....just vibes. I'm the third type. Vague character vibes, vague plot vibes....I could totally come up with a color palette but not a coherent plot. Plots come later. So I thought today I pull some pretty photos and just...vibe with … Continue reading Vibe and Aesthetics Only (no plots allowed)

1. If I see Peter Pan misquoted as saying "to live will be an awfully big adventure" one more time I will actually go banana balls. The quote is incorrect and entirely loses the spirit of the moment and the spirit of Peter Pan himself. The correct version is, "To die will be an awfully … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 46

The Liebster Award (and so on)

The Liebster Award is back and making rounds, continuing a glorious history of....of I'm not sure what but you get to answer fun questions so there's that. The wonderful Evelyn tagged me, which saved you all from getting a post about my movie ticket stub collection (seriously). (which apparently I went to see Avengers: Age … Continue reading The Liebster Award (and so on)

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 45

Me reading: ah yes, the trope of the quiet YA protagonist and her bubbly best friend. #SeenIt #SoTypical Me thinking a moment later: Oh wait. I am the trope. I'm the quite person who's closest friends always end up being extroverts. *has existential crisis* 2. Found this gem in my blog post drafts: I come … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 45

January wrap up: fairies, words, more word, and like…a lot of embroidery floss

We made it through the first month of 2021, which was....really something. I personally had a good month of getting back into the swing of things, reorganizing my life, buying new windshield wipers, and getting back to eating an obscene amount of trail mix. I don't have much an introduction here, because January is just … Continue reading January wrap up: fairies, words, more word, and like…a lot of embroidery floss

Dead Man's Curve. The legend. The myth. The moniker. The infamous curve on interstate 90 in Cleveland, OH. While we're all speeding through downtown at 65mph (of course there are those with death wishes hurtling pass at 75mph), suddenly: yellow signs! Lights! 35 mph! Because out of flipping nowhere a curve barely short of 90 … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 44

Writing Retreat #2: no disasters, only microwavable mac and cheese

(I warned you that there may be no blog posts last week because I was giving myself a writing retreat, and lo and behold, there were none. Nevertheless, I'm back.) Last January I went away to give myself a writing retreat for a few days, back when I thought 2020 was gonna be a fantastic … Continue reading Writing Retreat #2: no disasters, only microwavable mac and cheese
