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 😉

More Words!

Words are happening!!! Last week I added 4k, give or take, new words to my current story. I’m a NaNoRebel, and there were some snacks. XD My disastrous christening was perfectly disastrous, and I surprised myself with some new details and character developments I wasn’t expecting. The dog in it is slowly morphing to have … More More Words!

Plate Update: LEGO, Sherlock Holmes, and Autumn

Longing to Write

I’m writing this from the kitchen table while I babysit breakfast. As soon as the whole kitchen smells like sausage, I will put the eggs in. Something wonderful and a little surprising happened to me last week. I’m in this really weird in-between stage where “Sincerely, Jem” is almost out of my hands and to … More Longing to Write

Kiera Q & A Vlog!

Okay, so I filmed a very awkward, rambley vlog answering y’all’s questions about my novel Kiera. It was fun. And awkward. And it includes an introduction to my Funko Pops, so that’s fun. 😉 I am not a fish, in case you were wondering… Yes, there’s a part two. 😉 Thanks so much for sending … More Kiera Q & A Vlog!
