Hello, everyone! What are you reading lately? I just finished From the Stars by C.S. Wilde and I'm pretty sure she's my new favorite Scifi Romance author! Check out this gorgeous cover...

Three Words

I love the tradition of picking a word for each year. A word to focus on, plan around, and maintain during mindfulness practice. 2018 is going to be big. I can already feel it, because this year, my psyche isn't happy with just one word. It wants three. Home The first word that came to... Continue Reading →

Another Chance to Set Intentions

2018 is blessed with an abundance of full moons, giving me even more opportunities to set intentions. I like linking these intentions to the lunar phases. It helps remind me of the larger world and universe out there beyond the society of humankind—a tangible world, filled with its own magic. January is a big month... Continue Reading →

Sitting at the Crossroads

They say spirits and demons can become trapped at crossroads. At least in the stories and legends. It turns out, so can writers. I have so many directions I could go at the moment that I haven't been able to set foot down any path. There's a feeling of importance hanging over me right now.... Continue Reading →

I've written in this space about full moons from time to time, reflecting on the meaning some of my ancestors attributed to each one. This year, I'm trying something different. I'm setting an intention at each new moon, starting today! The new moon today will wax into the Cold Moon on January 1 (what an... Continue Reading →

Every year I tell myself I'll do better the next year, but then forget how exactly I thought I might go about that. This year, I've decided to make... Continue Reading →

When I Stopped Writing

For the better part of two years, I had an awesome word count to report at the end of most days. Thanks to playing along with the super-fun #authorconfession hashtag game on Twitter, I noticed that my word count had stalled out. This was strange and alarming. I went back through my planner to try... Continue Reading →

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 😉 ). 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 →
