I’ll Have to Pencil You In

I’m not sure exactly what happened, but things shifted several weeks ago. I think it was the culmination of several factors.

After All This Time, I Don’t Have Much to Show

Okay, I have to be honest, it’s halfway through February and I’ve written a grand total of three days. That’s it. Three whole days. Even when I sat down to write, I’m not cranking out my usual word count. It’s been a little discouraging. Yes, there are some things that are going on in other…

Book Review: Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsin

Optimists Die First normally wouldn’t be the type of book I’d pick up. I’m usually drawn to something with more action or something that has fantastical aspects to the world and story.

Struggling with Life and Writing

Planning for 2018 has been pretty good so far. I’m on track for most of my goals and I’m encouraged to keep going with new ideas. I’ve scoured Pinterest and other “neat idea” places to help build blog post ideas, writing prompts, and other things to give great content. I’ve been studying up on SEO…

A Word of Warning to all Writers

Today I found out that the lit mag NY Literary Magazine had closed shop. This was a page I kept an eye on and managed to have some pieces of poetry published through, so naturally I was confused. After a basic Google search, I found out that they had a contest email go out to…

Book Review: Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau

I’d like to say that I did research into what book I wanted to start 2018 reading and delved into books that were relevant or popular, but Dividing Eden was an impulse read. My local library had the book displayed as one of the books it was highlighting and the premise sounded interesting. Dividing Eden…
