March Wrap Up (at least it wasn’t like last March)

Well, we got through the anniversary of the pandemic. While this March was better than March 2020 for me personally (though March 2020 was such a low point that it's really a terrible rating scale), world over March 2021 was still pretty bad, so.......alright we'll get off the depressing train. *disembarks* I'm happy it's April … Continue reading March Wrap Up (at least it wasn’t like last March)

Books Quotes to Make You Think of Spring (or just warm weather in general)

So I um...took a hiatus last week. Whoopsies. Being now entirely "self-employed" I've gotten rather busy and a lot time I look at my schedule for the day and it's either "write a blog or edit my novel" and editing my novel wins every time. Sorry fellas. BUT, to remedy this, I'm going to start … Continue reading Books Quotes to Make You Think of Spring (or just warm weather in general)

February Wrap Up: ugh, ugh, ugh, it’s March again

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Or more accurately: EWWWWWWW. It's March again. Which is strange, since there's a pretty strong scientific debate that March 2020 never actually ended. The boulder that March 2020 kicked down the hill is still rolling, if you take my meaning. March has never been my favorite month. It's not quite winter, it's not quite … Continue reading February Wrap Up: ugh, ugh, ugh, it’s March again

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).

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

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

“Snow comes after fire, and even dragons have their endings.” (book endings)

Last week we talked about opening lines, this week we're talking about ENDING lines. Endings in general, I don't think are anyone's favorite. No one wants to see the end of a good story. They can also be freaking hard to write. But endings are important because nothing, NOTHING is worse than an ending that … Continue reading “Snow comes after fire, and even dragons have their endings.” (book endings)
