2020 Wrap Up: the Year to End All Years

Well, 2020 is over folks, though that doesn't mean this year is going to be infinitely better than the last (don't mean to be a Puddleglum here), and if it's not, we can't say "well, it's 2020" anymore, so what are we gonna do??? What are we gonna blame it on now?? But anyway, with … Continue reading 2020 Wrap Up: the Year to End All Years

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 39

Another NaNoWriMo won and done and in the bag *brushes off hands*. I finished at 1 am on Thanksgiving, fueled by brownie cheesecake. If lucky, I'm halfway through the novel and intend to continue writing it through December (I had this grand plan at the beginning of NaNo that I would finish it by the … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 39

First Drafts That Are as Bad as Skunks Smell

"First drafts are supposed to be messy," a famous writer once said. Or maybe a conglomerate of famous writers. Or maybe that was just the internet screaming at us. We've all heard this maxim before and have been like "yeah yeah, I get it, but my draft isn't just messy it's a dumpster fire and … Continue reading First Drafts That Are as Bad as Skunks Smell

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 35

(just finished watching the Mandalorian and now watching the British Baking Show. It's a good Friday night) Tomorrow is All Hallow's Eve/Halloween/Almost NaNoWriMo. I was thinking back to waaaaay long ago, and I remember sitting on the porch during Trick-or-Treating wearing a cloak and masquerade mask writing....a blog (which is very Bernadette of me. I … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 35

September Wrap Up (aka NaNoWriMo is almost upon us)

IT'S OCTOBER. YAY FALL. *flings bats and leaves in the air* *catches the bats before they fall because if they fall on the ground they can't fly up again and they die* It's October which means pumpkins and flannels and tea and pumpkins and leather jackets and adventures and moodiness and *really should stop talking … Continue reading September Wrap Up (aka NaNoWriMo is almost upon us)

Saturday Morning Post Vol. 32

Let me tell you a story about a writer endlessly wandering her neighborhood. It's the height of the lockdown. April 59th. (Or was it March 33rd?). I feel like I remembering it being warm so it could by May 41st. But also....like I can remember when the lockdown began but not when it actually ended … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post Vol. 32

Goodbye August HULLO SEPTEMBER

Not, gonna lie, I kinda don't want to see August go. Summer is ending??? What??? We barely got any of it!!! And also all the months were turning into mush, so it feels weird that were actually moving in fall, instead of staying in this weird stalemate which the past few months have felt like. … Continue reading Goodbye August HULLO SEPTEMBER
