On panicking….and overcoming

Hello lovelies, You remember how I said I’d be better at keeping you updated on all the happenings of 2014? Well, here we go.  Time for a confession: I am beyond overwhelmed. It’s not like I don’t know what hard work is, but every time something new comes up, I’m bombarded with feelings of terror all over again.

On when things don’t go quite as you planned…

   Hello lovelies,    So, it’s the end of November. Already. What is happening? Where has the time gone?!  I seriously have no idea what happened to 2013.

School and life got in the way and … Read More On when things don’t go quite as you planned…

The honeymoon stage.

Voices. There are voices in my head. You know, if you tell a non-writer (or non-reader) that there are voices in your head, they’d look at you weird. And then, they’ll proceed to run away. But for someone who lives in a world of the imaginary, this is a typical statement. Lately, I’ve had a particular pair of voices hanging out in my brain. And to … Read More The honeymoon stage.

Shop Talk Thursday: Friendships in the Writing World

You know what I love about the writing community? I love the fact that it is a community. As writers, we tend to be pretty lonely creatures.

It’s not a problem to us to sit in front of a computer or a notepad and plan out every … Read More Shop Talk Thursday: Friendships in the Writing World

What Olympics Mean to Me

Just like any sport loving individual, I’ve been watching the Olympics. A lot. Seriously, I didn’t know it was possible to have the TV on for 10 hours a day and not have your brain explode. I’m not much for TV watching these days, so it’s definitely a unique experience for me.  Olympics is an amazing event. I love seeing all of the athletes … Read More What Olympics Mean to Me
