Happy New Year!!! A new year, a fresh page, the beginning a one more story--the new year can mean many things to different people, but to most it means a chance for making the dreaded New Years Resolution. Last year I had lofty goals and met a lot of them. Not all of them (I'm … Continue reading Resolved for 2018
November has come to a close and, along with it, the end of NaNoWriMo. As I mentioned before, I think November is an absolutely horrible time of the year to expect people to sit down and write, especially when you take into account work, college finals, family, holiday engagements, blah, blah blah... But I'll stop … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Wrap Up
Hello everyone and happy almost Thanksgiving! Although I'm doing better than previous years, NaNoWriMo is kind of kicking my butt.

For anyone out there who isn't familiar with NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month and spans … Continue reading At the Starting Line for NaNoWriMo!
Wow... It's been a little while since I've done a writing update, so I might be a bit overdue (I'm pretty sure my last one was posted in June... oops). But you know how that goes. Life gets busy with things like work and family, and writing gets shoved off to the side. October isn't … Continue reading Writing Update- Hitting the Query Trenches
I had so many goals for this year- reading more (I've been eating books), visiting more art galleries (yep), and being more physically fit (still training for my half-marathon in June!). The one thing that I just can't manage is sticking to any sort of writing schedule. Query Kombat submissions were due by May 19th, … Continue reading Distractions
