I don't have a lot of "good mornings". I don't usually wake up cheerful and bubbly with jewel-toned birds chirruping after me on the way to work. My brain doesn't actually work at 100% until at least 10 a.m. and only after that first cup of coffee zings through my blood. So I was very … Continue reading When That Query Anxiety Strikes Out Of Nowhere
Now that we’re officially more than two weeks into the New Year, it feels right to do a little New Year’s Round-Up for 2017—gotta love that sweet, sweet procrastination. But 2017 was such a garbage year, I wanted to put something out into the Internet ether about the good/cool things that happened. Positivity, people—they keep … Continue reading 2017 Round-Up
Well, NaNoWriMo is fully over and it's December which means most agents are on submission hiatus or whatever it's called and I still don't know how buying a domain/website works and some agents say you need a website and some say you don't--okay brain, stop. If the domain you want hasn't been taken yet, it … Continue reading Ah, the depths of query hell…
And here we are at the end of November. You can go check out my longer post here but suffice it to say that I am good at NaNo and we should all be proud of what we've done or even just tried to do.
Hey everyone, just checking to make sure everyone survived the gorge-fest and/or uncomfortable family time that was last Thursday. I did (thankfully, the family time was enjoyable rather than something to dread, so I hope all you folks out there with dreadful times survived well and intact), and now I hope to get back into … Continue reading Thanksgiving is Over–Finally
As promised, here's a link to my Day 20 journal post. Spoiler warning: I won, and the journal reflects how tired I am at the moment. But you can read it in full here and I'll be doing a much more in-depth one on the 30th.
Okay guys. I've been working on starting an "editorial calendar" as the jargon goes and have been working on categories and putting posts together in advance. I've also altered the layout of this website a bit and I think I like it better, but please just let me know if it's aesthetically horrible or if … Continue reading Blog Progress
All right, y'all. I'm really trying to be bloggy here now. I went to an EVENT. And it was OUTSIDE OF MY HOUSE. WITH PEOPLE. Anyway, I just wanted to share a few thoughts I had during/after Marissa Meyer's lovely talk at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, NC, on 11/12/17 as part of her book … Continue reading Author Talks: Marissa Meyer at Quail Ridge Books, 11/12/17
Hey WriMos and non-WriMos. It's the 10th of November and I hope everyone working on NaNoWriMo this year is kicking butt. I hit 25K yesterday and I put together a familiar little journal entry on my writerly Tumblr blog here if you'd like to go check it out there (there's a little bit on my … Continue reading TFAB #9: NaNoWriMo Journal Entry
Damn, my last post was on June 20th. Very bad blogging behavior. But I've been wanting to get back to it--I'm even composing a draft outside of WordPress to make sure I get it right. So, stay tuned, if you want. I promise that there's a slim possibility you'll be blown away--but more than likely … Continue reading Yikes, Y’all…
