Sometimes it’s hard to try new things, okay? When it comes to reading recommended books or watching TV shows everyone tells me I need to watch, I procrastinate. Hard. I keep saying, “Oh yeah, I’m going to do that soon!” And then I don’t. Until I do (years later), and I inevitably fall in love … Continue reading That Feeling When You’re Completely Blown Away by a Book
My first time trying out story posts! It’s fun…other than the fact that it completely moves the text from where I put it?? (So, sorry if it’s hard to read—blame WordPress!) I had the spacing all beautifully figured out, but I guess the website had different ideas. Happy Thursday morning, and I’ll catch you later … Continue reading I just finished reading Words of Radiance and…WOW.
When you work out, you do a warmup before you start. Before a soccer game, you do a warmup to get you going. Even artists warm up with quick sketches before they get to work. So why don't we talk about writing warmups more? I'll admit that I haven't been the best at doing them … Continue reading Stretch Your Brain with Writing Warmups
Everyone is always dreaming that they’re somewhere else. Really, it’s no wonder. This world can be cruel and cold, and all of us need an escape sometimes. But the important thing is to remember that this is life, and we all have something we’re called to do. Imagination is a wonderful thing, but it’s also … Continue reading Idle Imaginings — My “Dream Life”

To kick off this year, I'm starting a new story today on my Ko-fi! (If you're one of my email subscribers, I hope you're already excited by the exclusive excerpt you read in the newsletter!) As opposed to most of the stories I've posted on the blog, this story will have multiple chapters that I'll … Continue reading The Chosen Two: A Brand New Story
I sat with my husband on the couch, watching the Thirteenth Doctor regain her composure as she pressed a lever on the TARDIS console. As the familiar theme song started up with the credits, there was one word in my mind. Woah. It was the same reaction I'd had after every episode in the Flux … Continue reading Flux: The Good, the Bad, and the Ravagers
Originally posted on my Ko-fi When Victor opened his eyes, the first thing he saw was a crying child. His feet instantly carried him towards the poor soul, a little girl no more than five years old hugging herself as she knelt on the pavement, her light brown pigtails bobbing with her sobs. Victor checked … Continue reading Misguided Ghosts
Happy Monday, everyone! Now that I have Mondays freed up on the blog, I have some room to cover a broader range of topics. One thing that I really want to do more is talk about authors who have helped me as a writer. We all have those inspiring authors that stay with us as … Continue reading Inspiring Authors: Bryan Davis
Originally posted on my Ko-fi Tsarra pushed open the front door quietly, the wood protesting with a faint creak. She couldn’t find it in herself to be annoyed at the sound this time. She set her unstrung bow down in the corner and placed her travelling sack beside it. The house was quiet—she knew everyone … Continue reading A Moment of Forgiveness
