Nothing Is Wasted

My family has been through some things (especially in the last eighteen months or so) that I can tend to wish would never have happened. (I’m still uncomfortable talking about them anywhere, so be warned that this post is going to be a bit vague. 😉 ) The “things” keep coming back now and then … More Nothing Is Wasted

You Are So Loved

Happy Chocolate (and Love!) Day! 😀 Because I’m single, today doesn’t mean a lot to me personally, but it’s been really sweet to see everyone else’s celebrations. To my sister who shared the story of her relationship with her husband, to the fellow church member who posted pictures of her sweet baby valentine, and to … More You Are So Loved

Love and More Love

Do you ever have a moment when something you love is loved so much by other people and you get all happy inside and feel like a happy human floating on a happy cloud of love? This happens pretty often for me (when someone discovers an underrated indie author or my penpal listens to the … More Love and More Love

Your Guide to Epic Buddy Reads (with Mikayla, Kate, and Cheesecake)

Today my awesome friend Mikayla and I completed our fourth official buddy read. (There have been one or two “accidental” ones, for the record.) We thought it would be super fun to share some of our buddy reading tips with you. 😉 Choose a book you both want to read.

Halfway, HOORAY!

I’ve been working more on my fantasy novel, and I’m so happy with how it’s going so far! Something weird just happened and somebody evil probably did it, and the MCs are low on food, and also they’re finally talking to each other a little more which is nice. XD By my nearest count, I … More Halfway, HOORAY!

Batteries and a Book Club

I got batteries for Chanukah (eight nights x one gift per night = eight traditionally practical gifts), and it’s been so amazing. 😉 My Dana Alphasmart electronic typewriter is delightfully ancient and completely useless without batteries, so I’m super happy to have it back in comission. I’ve already writen 5,000 new words (distraction free!) on … More Batteries and a Book Club

My 2020 Bookish Goals

Happy New Year, again! 😀  I’m seriously loving how the numbers “2020” look. It’s satisfyingly symmetrical. XD  For the past two years, I’ve been setting word-related goals and sharing them here on my blog, (see how I did on last year’s here), so I thought I’d do it again. 😀 And this is more of … More My 2020 Bookish Goals

2019 in Review ;)

A long time ago in 2016, some friends and I were commenting on a sci-fi looking outfit. “Woah, that looks like it’s from 2020 or something.” Seconds later, we all freaked out when we realized that sci-fi-sounding date was only four years away. And now 2020 is today. O.o. Start practicing writing it on papers … More 2019 in Review 😉
