Horrormance

Writers face many challenges. One that might not be as well-known among readers is how we agonize over where our books fit in to the grand world of fiction. I've rarely met a writer who hasn't at one point wondered what genre they should use to help readers connect with their works. So, what do... Continue Reading →

Hoodie Weather!

The joy of cooler weather doesn't end with knitting. I'm a huge fan of hoodies, and love it when the temperatures get to a point where I can wear them.

If it helps even one person, it's worth putting out there. From May of 2018... I jokingly talk about "Cassland" as the imaginary place... Continue Reading →

Joyous Summer Solstice!

We have reached the point of the year in the Northern hemisphere when the sun is at its most powerful and the night is at its shortest. The days will begin to shrink now, even as the heat kicks in. It will still be a time of great activity and outward growth for me, as... Continue Reading →

Strong Sun New Moon

Today is a new moon, so what better time to renew my blogging practice! This month's new moon is leading into the full moon that is sometimes called the Strong Sun moon. I'm going to use this time to focus on things I want to strengthen and grow as the moon waxes full. My writing,... Continue Reading →
