I haven't spent as much time plotting or playing with my story over the last few days, but it has been rolling around my head a bit. There are pieces coming together and falling apart, quite frequently. But my brain is starting to adjust. One of the main reasons I've spent the last few months/years… Continue reading Progress is Hard. Starting is Harder.
I've been talking about this writing thing for a while, now. And I've gotten nowhere. But... That has all changed! Sort of.Not really.But I did start brainstorming last night. There's not much there yet but it's a step in the "write" direction. ... Ignore that. I'm just excited.I used to write all the time. Short… Continue reading Brainstorming: Part One
The world has been a giant trash fire lately. Like massive. And it only seems to be getting worse. Choosing last month to start a healthy habits challenge, in retrospect, was the worst idea. But I guess we can't predict the future, right? I don't think life would be any fun if we could, anyway. I've… Continue reading Gratitude.
Did you see it? (It's pictured below if you don't want to be spoiled, yet.) The cover and title for the final installment in Sabaa Tahir's Ember series was released today. Aaaaand: I. Am. In. Love.

When Greg first suggested, in the middle of January, we undertake a challenge for the month of February, I didn't expect it to become a trend. I still don't. However, given some of the positive outcomes* of the February "Books and Games" Challenge, I've decided to forge on, for now. And thus, the March "Healthy… Continue reading March “Healthy Habits” Challenge
To Finn Voy, magic is two things: a knife to hold under the chin of anyone who crosses her…and a disguise she shrugs on as easily as others pull on cloaks. As a talented faceshifter, it’s been years since Finn has seen her own face, and that’s exactly how she likes it. But when Finn… Continue reading Nocturna by Maya Motayne
And who am I but a blip on the radar? There for an instant and gone. A question without an answer. A burnt out sun. Dying for a thousand years. Collapsing in on myself. Where do I go from here? What can I build with broken hands? A hollow girl full of shallow victories. When… Continue reading Will You Remember Me?
As I mentioned in my previous post, Greg and I went to dinner on Sunday night for his birthday. And let me just tell you: it was a life changing experience.Morimoto's in Philadelphia is a restaurant like no other. On approach from the street it doesn't look like anything special, but as soon as you… Continue reading Morimoto
Tonight felt good. I've got a nice long post about Greg's birthday dinner tonight, on the way this week. But for now, I'm going to bask in the glory of truly feeling good about myself for once. Tonight I was on cloud nine, and even though I didn't wear the four inch red heels, I… Continue reading Killer Queen
Fear. I always thought I was motivated by hope, compassion, love; the desire to do the right thing. But I'm not so sure anymore. It's been five days since this February Books and Games challenge began. Five days. By human standards of time, not very long. Though, it feels like forever. There have been excellent… Continue reading Fear
