Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 24

Wow what a day. (I write this Friday afternoon). (Been running around to like 4 stores merchandising. I've been out since 9 o'clock in the morning) (Ooh and my new couch came) (The FedEx guy hates me) (I mean it's a giant box. You could fit like four of me in there. Maybe more). (It's … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 24

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 22

(I must issue my apologies for not posting last Saturday. My brain was going to implode, and I had nothing to say but scream in you faces gibberish such as, "AFHGJLLK" So, I didn't. If you've got nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all.) Have'd some adventure recently. Kayaking, more drive-ins ("Where have … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 22

Little Women 2019: I came, I watched, I had thoughts

Ok so I watched the 2019 Little Women. I expected to either have a really ANGRY review of how much I hated it, or a GUSHING review of how much I loved it. And I'm just....meh???

How was September? What is October? IS THAT NANOWRIMO I SMELL???

First of all, September is my favorite month because it's my birthday month and also the start of fall (the scientists are wrong. Fall starts September 1st). September was...September? Like pretty normal stuff. Swan Lake, editing *cries*, reading (Ebola and a book on the Armenian Genocide. Yeah, I like to read fun stuff), dinosaurs, and … Continue reading How was September?

Should You Read Nonfiction as a Fiction Writer?

I don't know about anyone else, but I LOVE reading nonfiction. Evidence: Writers are constantly berated with the fact that they need to read fiction. That they need to read within their genre. And WE DO NEED TO READ FICTION. I mean, we make fiction, so we better be familiar with it. But you know … Continue reading Should You Read Nonfiction as a Fiction Writer?

Things that Drive Me Crazy in Books

I did something similar to this called Writerly Rants, but it was so far back in the archives that I'm not going to bring it up. No, we do not go down that rabbit hole.  HOWEVER. I do have some things to say. Things that make me go as mad as a March Hare in … Continue reading Things that Drive Me Crazy in Books

How to Celebrate When You Finish Your First Draft

Summertime is the time to PARTY. (And by party I mean going to the mountains and finding somewhere quiet where you can finish your book.) And speaking of parties...(I apologize to all the introverts. I realize talking about parties is illegal.) Finishing your first draft can be very exciting. Whether it's after 30 hysterically frantic … Continue reading How to Celebrate When You Finish Your First Draft
