October Wrap Up: woodland kings, revisions, and one slow reader

So just realized that I didn't do an October wrap up last week because it slipped my mind because A: NaNoWriMo and B: I guess I don't want October to end but it is over so here we go. (Pause: did I ever tell you Midwest weather is insane?? Because right now it is *checks … Continue reading October Wrap Up: woodland kings, revisions, and one slow reader

Introducing NaNoWriMo 2020 (let’s hope it’s not as bad as the rest of the year)

IT'S TIME. IT'S REALLY REALLY TIME. NaNoWriMo is coming up THIS WEEKEND. (AND The Mandalorian. We'll just ignore election day looming in the near distance). I'm am PUMPED.

When You Find out You’re a Writer (and Arsenic and Old Lace)

Next week is Halloween ("All Hallows Eve" is what I celebrate but for the general public's sake, I'll just go with Halloween). In honor of it being so close to that night (AND NANOWRIMO. Calm down, this has nothing to do with Nanowrimo, I'm just REALLY EXCITED ABOUT IT) of candy and pixies, I am … Continue reading When You Find out You’re a Writer (and Arsenic and Old Lace)

And So, It Begins: Nanowrimo 2016

Last night, while sitting on the couch, after a lovely night of sitting on the driveway in a pirate costume (I will say I looked awesome) with my neighbors and family, and after watching Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein, I suddenly jerked up.
