Work can kind of take over your life. Add to it the ever growing demand of dishes and laundry, and it seems like there is never enough time in the day to get your long list of things done. Writing usually finds itself at the very bottom of that list. Lately, that has meant a … Continue reading How I Found My Balance
But, remember to get back to work. I work full time as a ghostwriter. This means I write full novellas and novels for other people to sell and market under a different name. No, I can't tell you anything about them. That's the deal. Lately, I've been working on a faster schedule than usual and … Continue reading It’s Okay to Breathe
Dungeons and Dragons, or table top role playing games, have kind of taken over my life. As it stands, I'm taking part in over four games as we speak. One is in the works, one just began, one is on hold, and one is run by my husband. I'm even planning a month long horror … Continue reading Why You Should be Watching Critical Role
I power through. It's all I can really do right now. The old adage is "Write the book you want to read", after that, everything else is supposed to fall into place. Yet, I'm truly afraid that it won't fall into place for Starlight. I've been working on this project for what feels like a … Continue reading How I Overcome My Writing Doubts
Lately, I've been coming across a wealth of really interesting books that have been released, or will be released this year. Some of them explore diverse voices and some of them explore new ways of telling old stories. All of them are making me drool and are piling up on my Amazon wish lists! I … Continue reading 4 Books I’m Excited to Read in 2017
Have you ever spent money before you got it? Right now, in my head, I'm spending what I may possibly make from a future publishing contract (Disclaimer: it's totally not happening right now). I would like to put some away for savings, use some for bills, and I am most definitely making a trip to … Continue reading My Hogwarts Dream
I've been away. I'm sorry. I'd promise it will never happened again, but it would be a promise I'm going to break. This month I took on two ghostwriting projects at once, released a new self published book, finished the second draft of Starlight (and moved on to paper edits), and held two live events. … Continue reading Stress Management for the Modern Author
Several blogs ago I joined this immensely cool Facebook group called Geek Girl Bloggers. All of the women I've encountered on there have been so encouraging and inspiring for me over the past few years. When Pepi of Geek Anthropology suggested a book swap among the geek girls, I hopped on board. What could be … Continue reading Geek Girl Bloggers Book Swap!
Eeeeeep! I started writing because I had a hard time expressing myself verbally. Did you listen to my interview with Wooden Pants Publishing? I got too nervous and spoke way too fast. I called Maryland MARYLOND. Now, you expect me to talk in front of people? Who do you think you are? Sadly, the truth … Continue reading Public Speaking?!
Kayla over at Epicfied.com introduced me to a vlogger named Jenna Moreci and I absolutely love her. She talks about the craft of writing from her own point of view and I think her husband looks like the love child of Captain America and Bucky Barnes, but that's really off topic. One of the things … Continue reading Quarterly Goals: April-June
