How do you like Tuesdays? Specifically, what do you think of my Tuesday blog posts? I think it's beneficial to talk about good (and bad) stories so that we can learn from what others have done. Let me know your opinion in the comments! For now, I'm starting yet another new series about the stories … Continue reading The Stories that Shaped Me: Star Wars
Can We Always Write Every Day?
Write every day. We hear it all the time, and it's great advice. It's important to turn writing into a habit so that it comes naturally to us and we have time set aside for it. But there's one danger of this mantra being pushed so hard, and it's one I've lived. What if there's … Continue reading Can We Always Write Every Day?
Ancient Songs Reawakened
The idea is that I found less and less to enjoy about worship music as time went on, and yet, there came a time when I realised I needed it desperately. The Father seeks those who worship in spirit and in truth, but I was never quite sure what that meant. All I knew was … Continue reading Ancient Songs Reawakened
If you can't tell yet, I'm a fiction lover. I always have been and always will be. Half of my life revolves around discovering new worlds and diving right into my imagination. When I was younger, non-fiction was a dirty word. The biographies I was forced to read for school were, predictably, terrible, but I … Continue reading Fasting Fiction

It’s Not About Me
Note: Today's the last day to vote for my 100 followers celebration! I'm also diving headlong into my journey of writing a novel in 3 months, which you can follow on Ko-fi! I'll admit, I'm tired. The last couple of months have been a rollercoaster for me. I've celebrated my first wedding anniversary with my … Continue reading It’s Not About Me
The Magic of Little Coffee Shops
I'm a city-dweller - you know, rush hour traffic, a major interstate a mile away, tourists, every restaurant chain you could ever dream of, etc. I was blessed enough to find a quiet nook of the city to live in, which is my perfect bubble. Utter peace inside, but lots to do outside. Still, there's … Continue reading The Magic of Little Coffee Shops
The Art of Never Giving Up
Writing a novel is hard. We probably all know this, and yet, many of us set out to accomplish this mighty feat. Isn't it amazing? But when you're in the middle of writing a book, sometimes it doesn't feel so amazing. I've been on a rollercoaster with my WIP, "Project Pea," over the past 15 … Continue reading The Art of Never Giving Up
Stretch Your Brain with Writing Warmups
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
