Plot Bunnies

Deconstructing the Artist

I am in this great and terrifying space where it’s time to work on a new project. If you’re not in the writing world, you may not have heard the term “plot bunny.” Plot bunnies are those little snippets of inspiration that can hit you anywhere, at anytime. It can be as small as a […]

Book Review, This Week I Read

It’s been quite the year. I survived a wild, whirlwind of a summer followed by an even more wild fall. In September I started my masters program in Library Science, began a new job, and moved across the state. Now it’s November and I don’t know where 2016 went or how it’s already time to pull […]

Truths

Deconstructing the Artist

Here’s the truth – writing a book is hard. To quote The Princess Bride, “Life is pain. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” The same can said for writing a book. Writing a book is pain, anyone who says differently is probably trying to sell you a sure fire formula to writing a novel […]

Romantic Notions


Deconstructing the Artist

Sometimes I feel closely akin to the Romantic poets and writers of old. The melancholy, the heartbreak, the overwhelming feelings.

Book Review: Convincing Leopold


Book Review

Every time one of my friends or family asked me to do something (fun things, things I’d normally enjoy), I’d get a wave of anxiety […]

Stuff I’ve Done – The Outtakes


List

I have managed to spill coffee on myself, my couch, my afghan, or my floor every day for the past three months. I’m not even surprised anymore. I finished my NaNoWriMo challenge with 2 days to spare! The last week was tough because what I thought was the midpoint was actually the climax and the […]
