Draft 2 of “Imperfect” is getting so close! I’m just four chapters away from finishing making the changes I marked up and finding some good solutions to problems I previously identified. *rubs hands together* Just for fun, here’s a (rough) excerpt of one of my favorite scenes. 😉 • • • I walked across the … More Gold and Silver Stars (Excerpt from Imperfect)

It’s Red All Over

A month or two ago, I printed off the first draft of my WIP “Imperfect”, stapled it together in chapter-sized bites, found my red pen, and let the lovely stack haunt the top of my desk. Eventually that stack turned into two: “marked up” and “to mark up”. I’d grab a chapter or two when … More It’s Red All Over

Upcoming and Exciting

I’m excited about two word-related things right now… #1? The other day, I printed off draft one of “Imperfect”. You probably heard me cackling in excitement. 😆 Then I stapled it together in segments of a chapter or two, located my red pen, and got to work. 😉 I haven’t had a lot of time … More Upcoming and Exciting

Plate Update: Hedgehogs Again, Family, and Cold Weather

I just realized that February is over, and I almost can’t believe it. Maybe that’s because it’s two days shorter than all the other months? XD February was a nice, COLD month. This month’s full plate was a nice mishmash of cold weather food, Valentine’s Day snacks, and victory chocolate. Anyway, here’s a quick update … More Plate Update: Hedgehogs Again, Family, and Cold Weather

Plate Update: Picture Books, Canvases, and Libraries Galore

January, a month full of beginnings and course corrections and wondering about more course corrections. 😉 This month’s full plate was jam-packed with special foods (cheesecake, peanut butter cookies, gluten-free cake, etc.) since it was our most birthday heavy month. 😉 Anyway, here’s a quick update on my full plate last month… Pleasure read: The … More Plate Update: Picture Books, Canvases, and Libraries Galore
