I did not actually get tagged for this BUT I'm in desperate need of a blog idea as all this quarantine isn't exactly inspiring me. I've seen this on multiple blogs so I guess I'll tag at least two people who I KNOW I read their answers, Jenna and Kenzie So, without further ado, go … Continue reading “Never Have I Ever ” Writing Tag
Every time I've been sitting down to write this, it turns into a whole 'nother blog post that requires it's own headline. So here I am, trying to write this for the THIRD time. Third time's a charm, right? Right???? I've said this before, and I'll say it again: this year has been going slow … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 5
This Monday (writing wise) was a big UGGGHHHHHH and an even longer GAHHHHHH. *featuring me staring angrily at my laptop with a murderous glare* I was editing Lily, and it was just one of those days where this happens: Me: I don't even know where to start. Ugh this sucks. This all sucks. This can't … Continue reading Distinguishing from a Mood and What Actually Sucks
*This is my weekly whatever where I go on about whatever is on my mind* Oh gosh how I love the Interstellar soundtrack. Yes, I've been ranting and raving about it for the past 6 years and I won't stop ranting and raving about it till never. In other news, it's finally like winter around … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 2
Last week I gave myself a three-day writing retreat before the onslaught of the spring season (ballet) and just life getting busier after the holidays are past and we all remember that life isn't just about seeing Christmas lights and eating cookies and giving/getting presents (or is it? Let's call a vote). If you ever … Continue reading Lesson from a Writing Retreat and Past and Passed and a Snow Queen
*arrives in flapper dress while doing the Charleston* "It's not the roaring 20's," you say. *stops and jumps back in time machine* Anyone else just feel like for 2020 we should all just pretend we're in the 1920's??? Anyway, 2019 is ending soon, the decade is ending, and maybe the world is ending too but … Continue reading 2019 Wrap Up and Looking Foward to 2020

(what I look forward.) Short answer: No. Slightly longer answer: No, you do not have to write during the … Continue reading Do You Have to Write on the Holidays?
First Rule of Having an Effective Writing Session: understanding that there is no way to make sure that every. single. writing session is effective. While there are tips and tricks (finding the right time of day, the pomodoro method, getting rid of distractions, calling up Gandalf) there never is a guarantee. There is no magic … Continue reading There is no Guarantee of a Good Writing Session
Been doing this writing thing for a while now (like...a decade). And after you do things for a while you develop some habits. Some good (like writing every day) and some bad. Like these ones. 1 Thinking up blog posts and story ideas as I fall asleep. Or am trying to fall asleep. Just, is … Continue reading Bad Habits I Have Developed as a Writer (this is gonna be fun I swear)
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? What is October? IS THAT NANOWRIMO I SMELL???
