Last week I posted about the strange writing stasis I find myself in. No big projects, half-ideas, and maybe a little bit of rest needed. 😉 I’ve still had the insane bug to write, write, write, and I recently found a very fun and restful way to satisfy that while waiting for the big, important … More My Bookish World
Today I’ve been formatting the Sincerely, Jem paperback edition! ❤ It’s my first time every formatting a paperback, and I gotta say people who do this regularly are NINJAS. I called in my sister Perry for back-up, and she found me the right fonts (and helped install them XD ), helped me fix some weird … More Formatting Time!

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

And now 2020 is today. O.o. Start practicing writing it on papers … More 2019 in Review 😉
My characters mean a lot to me. I love creating them and I love sharing them with you all. 😉 Just for fun, I decided to “write” Christmas cards to my characters. 😉 Most of them are from published stories, except the last one… Enjoy! Dear Kiera, Merry Christmas to you and yours! I hope … More Christmas Cards for My Characters

Not to freak anyone out or anything, but it’s 39 days until Christmas. Isn’t that awesome?!! And I *think* my crazy Southwest weather might finally be turning the corner into coldness. 😉 It’s also only 13 days until A Very Bookish Christmas (a.k.a. the first anthology I’ve ever been published in, and I love the … More A Very Bookish Christmas UPDATE!
