Happy 100th Birthday to Us, Grandma!

I normally shy away from posting things online that I consider "too personal." But at the same time, I also believe in sharing some of life's difficulties with you. Because I know I'm not the only one who goes through things like this, and maybe hearing my voice will help those of you who have or are going through similar situations as well.

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ Why I Was Ready to Give Up Writing

After a year’s hiatus, I came back to publishing to a whole new world. Many of the authors I had followed were no longer publishing. The ones still around either rocketed to stardom or cut comfortable corners into their perspective niches. Many of the methods I had utilized at the start of my career were null and void, I just wasn’t aware until it was too late.

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ Dear Diary…

About a month before watching Cathy Hay's video, I pulled out my high school journals "for research." I've had an idea for a YA novel/novella series for some time, but I wanted to step back into the shoes of Fifteen. Boy, did my journals deliver.

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ What’s the Point?

It's hard writing into the void sometimes. With traditional and original fiction, you often write something that people may or not read. Then they may or may not leave a review. If they bother leaving a review (this is not counting book bloggers btw) that's either because they loved your story, or they hated it. The average G.I. Jane doesn't review unless your story moved them to a strong feeling.

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ What’s Most Important?

One thing I hope you take away from my meanderings, is to enjoy your life. Don't beat yourself up for missing the occasional deadline or falling out of habits. Sometimes, we structure our lives too much, so much that we forget how to be part of the world outside our screens. I hope you find ways to surround yourself with beauty this week. I hope you are inspired 🙂

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ Ballet, Yoga, and Finding my Sanity

Now that I'm in my 30's, I've realized how important it is to cut out time for myself. I used to guilt myself over this as a new mom, but after crashing and burning because I wasn't taking care of myself, I've learned from past mistakes. No matter how much you love your kids, your spouse, or your job, you can't neglect yourself. 

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ Blackbriar Cove

At the end of the day, I can't really say what's going to happen in the future. I'll finish my second draft of Blackbriar Cove. I'll hug my little guy. I'll read a lot of books. Above all, I'll keep writing, no matter what. That's my promise to my future self.

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ Truth About Newsletters

I like to think of a mailing list like a tree farm. If you let all the undergrowth fill up between the trees, they won't grow nearly as thick or tall. They'll always be competing with the little offshoots and filler. But if you cut away the underbrush, you can see the forest through the trees.
