Plate Update: Tea, the Post Office, and Brainstorming

I’ve gotta hand it to September. It’s definitely my favorite month of the year. 😀 Here’s a quick update on what I did last month. This full plate included lots of tea and hot chocolate to celebrate this new season. 😉 (Wait, beverages don’t go on a plate… Does that count?) 😀 (I’d apologize for … More Plate Update: Tea, the Post Office, and Brainstorming

Family Camp!

Disclaimer: this is not Monday. But who doesn’t like an extra post? 😉 Last week, I got to go camping with my family and church family! I enjoyed everything about it–the weather, the junk food (*innocent face*), the games, the bonfire, and the sermons all about the Gospel and suffering. It was also really special … More Family Camp!

Plate Update: Packages, British Accents, and My WIP

A little over a year ago, I wrote a blog post called “What’s On My Plate?” Basically it contained a picture of me with a dinner plate piled high with all the books, projects, and notebooks begging for my attention. I’m was grinning kind of wryly and preparing to “dig in” with a huge knife and … More Plate Update: Packages, British Accents, and My WIP

Second Draft Crazies

I did Camp NaNoWriMo again this month! My goal was to accomplish 10,000 words of revisions to my WIP “Kiera”. Between releasing The Twin Arrows, celebrating Independence Day, and selling books at the homeschool convention, I only wrote fourteen days this month; but I’m happy to say I made my goal! 😀 It’s been really … More Second Draft Crazies

The #Voices of YA Tag

Zane from Simple Impossibilities (a super awesome blog) did this blog tag the other day and left it open for anyone to consider themselves tagged. 😉 It’s been a little while since I’ve done one of these, so I decided to pick it up.
