NaNoWriMo, Meet MiniWriMo

Happy November! This is my absolute favorite time of year, and I can’t wait to do something I haven’t done in years: participate in NaNoWriMo! Nine or so years ago (wow), I dove into my first NaNoWriMo...and missed my goals spectacularly. I had no idea what I was doing, I’d gone in with absolutely no… Continue reading NaNoWriMo, Meet MiniWriMo

Drafting a Novel in 30 Days and Being ‘Enough’

Hello! Hope you’re staying cool this summer (mentally, I’m already in autumn). It’s been a great summer so far, and one of my big goals is right on track: I’m drafting my fourth novel, and I’m doing it in 30 days!

Summer Updates and New Projects

Hello! It’s been a little bit since my last post, but I had quite a busy spring. In May, I underwent surgery to remove my gallbladder (a source of problems for 10+ years), went to Paris for a week, and still managed to hit a massive, semi-secret writing milestone.

2020 Reflections and Looking to 2021

Hello! It’s been a very busy December here, but things are about to slow waaaaay down now that work is wrapping up. I’m looking forward to a break filled with video games, writing, baking holiday recipes, and lots of books! I’m planning on reading A Christmas Carol next week, and Holly Black blessed our holidays… Continue reading 2020 Reflections and Looking to 2021

Your Race at Your Pace: A Tale of a 29-Year-Old

Hi everyone! Today happens to be my 29th birthday, and it's made me even more reflective than usual. Thirty is coming! The last year of my twenties! And 30 has always always felt like A Big Milestone -- maybe it means magically becoming more mature overnight, or more self-assured, or putting away the youth of… Continue reading Your Race at Your Pace: A Tale of a 29-Year-Old
