In a word, this year has been weird, and in another word, December specifically has been busy. So it all just WENT and here I am, on the brink of January, both glad and sad to see it go. Moving, in general, was the theme. In fact, "Moving" might be my title for the year.… Continue reading Where Did December And 2018 Go?
Well, so much for Blogmas! Actually, I didn't plan on doing Blogmas, so I'm not behind or anything, but I would like to post regularly on here again. I need to find a way to do so that isn't as severe as every day, but not as wanting as every week. I have been writing,… Continue reading Post NaNo Wrap Up And Planning For 2019
Well, shit, you guys, it finally happened. I've been a member of the NaNo website for almost a decade, I used the site to track for the past three years (though I competed more often than that), and finally, last night, I became a winner for the first time in the month of November. I… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – Winning!
This is the letter you get at 40,000 words. It's incredibly encouraging, for me at least. What's especially funny though: I dyed my hair purple today for the first time in like four-ish months and the next scene I'm about the embark on literally is an awkward dinner. The universe has opened up and screamed,… Continue reading A Tiny NaNo Update At 40k Words
Yesterday was the 18th, 60% done with the month, and 75% done with NaNo! Well, 3/4 of the way to the 50k word goal, at least. I'm feeling pretty good, very pumped to continuously be ahead of the word count, and super proud for spewing out words every day, even if some days that count… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – 37,500 Words (75% Complete!)
First 12,500 words. Last night I hit 25,000 words, or 25,969 (nice) to be exact! I'm halfway there and though I'm a little bit behind my goal of hitting 50k by the 20th, I think I can still make it (especially if I keep on ignoring Vacancy). There have been a few weird days, but also… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – 25,000 Words (The Halfway Mark!)

Fucking whoa. So over the first five days of NaNo, I've averaged 2500 words per day (and I got Vacancy out on time, so what the fricking frick?) to get me to 12,554 words at the end of the day yesterday. Can yoU BELIEVE IT? Just a note: this story was one I came up… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – First 12,500 Words
Vacancy is an ongoing web serial. Find out more about it and start reading here. Lorelei and Britney both scrambled behind the mirror, sliding into the tight space and smashing up against one another.

Chris Fox, who I've written about before, posted a video recently asking this question: Why do you write? I love listening to videos and talks when I'm doing chores because it gets me in a creative mood, and this was no exception. It's short and sweet and motivating. Like most animals, humans are, I guess,… Continue reading Why Do You Write?
