How’s Life?

Three weeks ago my life was flip-turned upside down and I'd like to take a minute. Just sit right there. I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called...ah wait a sec. Let's rewind and continue after you check out THIS LINK. Had enough nostalgia? Awesome sauce, let's continue. I would love... Continue Reading →

Reading Persuasion

I've been reading Jane Austen's "Persuasion" again and wanted to share some quotes that stood out to me so far. I forget how much of Austen's writing is prose interspersed by dialogue. An interesting read when so much of our modern novels are filled with dialogue and very little prose. Persuasion has long been my... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was spent with family here in our hundred year old farmhouse in the deep woods of Texas. I wish I could tell you I had a blast. A woman pregnant in her third trimester should be salivating at the very idea of this most glorious of food holidays. Unfortunately, I woke up early in the... Continue Reading →

On Writing

Last night, in my attempt to tuck away more words for NaNoWriMo, I found myself struggling. I don’t know if it was the pressure to write, or the fact I’ve been preoccupied with other things lately (i.e. Craving Beauty Online Tour, having a baby next month, getting house ready for aforementioned baby, etc.) Whatever the...

Joy comes to those who seek it, and sometimes can be found through the littlest things. No matter what your passion in life is, don't forget to enjoy life... Continue Reading →

see the forest, not the trees

Lately I’ve been working on an adult, contemporary romance novel. The genre has been a bit of a stretch for me in some ways. Usually I write about characters living in or journeying to a fantastical world. I have written character-centric romance before, however. And I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find I enjoy working on... Continue Reading →

A Hot Mess

Life is a hot mess of personal trials and triumphs. Sometimes we don’t even notice the things around us and time breezes by like the blink of an eye. But other times, the harder days drag us through the mud. I won’t just talk about life or my own personal drama for long. I like... Continue Reading →

Never Never Land

Some things I’ve learned in writing lately are to never presume, never expect and never relent. It’s easy to fall into that complacent place where you feel like you’ve won a great battle when you finish a story. Recently, I finished an original short story, the first thing I’ve truly accomplished writing-wise in months and... Continue Reading →
