I didn't know how to plan out my year with Vacancy being unfinished going into 2022, but now that it's done, it's time. I had a plan for 2021, and I did a lot of the things I hoped I would, but I also fell behind. Considering we... moved four times between September 2020 and… Continue reading Writing Plans For 2022
NaNoWriMo 2021 – First Friday Check In
We're five days into National Novel Writing Month, and while I was unsure at first if I would even indulge this year, the craziness that has been my last few weeks has lent itself perfectly to taking up the challenge once again, so here we are! I'm working on a sword and sorcery romcom featuring… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2021 – First Friday Check In
NaNoWriMo 2021 – Day 1
Well, today was a huge success as far as NaNo goes. It was also a success in general--I actually got to write! I haven't been able to devote time to work for about a week, and forget about grabbing ten or fifteen minutes here and there: I'm bad at focusing in short spurts when the… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2021 – Day 1
Well, December’s Here, And I Failed
But only by a little. 43,785 - That's how many words I ended up either revising, rewriting, or straight up newly drafted during November. I'm taking the old Vacancy serial and revamping it for a trilogy of novels and thought I'd use NaNo to help track my progress. I didn't take it as seriously as… Continue reading Well, December’s Here, And I Failed

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020 – The Home Stretch and Project Projections
I've had a series of unfortunate events occur, which hasn't stopped the writing train, but it has slowed it slightly. I got poison ivy from some yard work over a week ago, and it reached its worst this past weekend and into Monday. I've also been battling a sore throat for a few days which… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020 – The Home Stretch and Project Projections
A subtitle for today's blog could be "Planning for Brainstorm February," but I gotta stay on this month's brand, and dedicate actually works out. I dedicated today's practice, as Adriene asked us to, to "my work." It was meant to be a person or a thing that wasn't ourselves to prove how self love and… Continue reading Dedicate
Today, I have the power to stay on task. I mean, I had the power to stay in those standing splits the whole time and do shiva squats, so I could probably conquer the galaxy if I put my mind and brawn to it today. But we'll save becoming Supreme Leader of the Universe for… Continue reading Power
I really feel like I've been creating a new me, or rather, a slightly improved me, over the last couple weeks. Truly, new year, new me. Annoying but honest. In yoga, I think my biggest breakthrough thus far has been finding my breath. I heard about it for the past three-ish years, but I always… Continue reading Curate
Where Did December And 2018 Go?
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?
