Villainy and Proximity

The second Forbidden Knights book is half-finished, and I have this nagging feeling that it needs a different villain. That's not a revelation you want to have halfway through a novel (though it's better than having it when you're at the end, I suppose ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I thought at first that I was just feeling...

To Nano, or Not to Nano

It's that time of year again, when all my writer friends are having crazy fun getting started with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I always feel a pull to join them, and this year is no different. It's also the same in that I'm in the middle of a big piece that I really need... Continue Reading →

Creative Endeavors

I've heard people say, "Writing begets writing" (if you know the origin of this excellent quote, please let me know in the comments!). I find this to be absolutely true. For me, writing doesn't just lead to more writing. It leads to more creativity in general. Traveling along the writer's path, I've learned so many... Continue Reading →

The smooth texture of the paper, the scent of the ink, and the weight of all those words in tangible form gives me one of the strongest senses of joy and accomplishment I've ever experienced. For as long as I can remember, I've... Continue Reading →

Fall is my favorite season by far, with Winter coming in second. Knitting, snuggling under blankets with my loved ones, telling each other stories during... Continue Reading →

Reviewing a Year of Happiness

When I set out to write a blog post focusing on things that were making me happy each week, I didn't know what sort of challenges I'd be facing. I didn't know about the incredible and often mind-numbing events that would take place in the world. I also didn't know about the smaller, but much... Continue Reading →

The Harvest Moon

Today is the full moon sometimes called the Harvest Moon. It's a time to reap the benefits of all the hard work we've done, gathering the fruits of our labor in preparation for the colder months ahead. Autumn is my favorite season, with Winter a close second. Knitting, writing, hot cocoa, and bundling up under... Continue Reading →
