I wrote a post a while ago about how I didn’t listen to music while writing and instead preferred to gather inspiration from it between writing sessions. More recently though (probably because of looooonnng hours writing and editing Kiera), I’ve discovered several songs that help get my creative juices flowing while writing without distracting me … More A Smorgasbord of Writing Music
Christmas candy is amazing for getting writing done. Especially since my younger siblings gave me writing snacks as a gift. 😀 (Also, some sibs and I went to our favorite Christian coffee shop last weekend, and that really helped me get some words in too.) In other news, today I passed 15k words, which puts … More Halfway!!! (+Excerpt)

It’s been a very long time since I’ve started a brand new writing project that wasn’t a short story. 😉 This November, even though I’m not officially doing NaNo, I’m taking advantage of the hype to work on writing a 30k word dystopian novella. (I guess that makes me a NaNoRebel…) Eeeeekk!! 😉 (My username … More Meet My New Project!
