It's been a while since I really devoted my brain to reading actual books and not binging the occasional novel alongside too much fanfiction. So for the new year, and with a new mindset, I wanted to challenge myself. For 2022,... Continue Reading →

What Inspires You?

Most creatives I know reach that point where the cup runs empty. You struggle to find inspiration, the muse leaves you, or you can't seem to find ways to replenish your creativity. For fun, and on a variation of a theme, I wanted to share some of what has inspired me lately. Are you ready?

It’s Never too Late to Start Over

Like I tell my six-year-old, so long as you try your best, that's what counts. These days, I am trying my best to do better in every aspect of my life.

Weekly Writerly Witterings ~ Lessons in Writing

It's been a while since I wrote about writing. Probably because I've had something of a love/hate relationship with my passion for the past year.

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.
