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.

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.

Book Review — “Temporary Duty Assignment”

I’ve been wanting to start writing more in-depth book reviews here, and what better way to start the ball rolling than with A.E. Ash‘s Temporary Duty Assignmentbrought to you by Book Smugglers Publishing 🙂

Disclaimer 2: I should probably also share that I have a degree in literary analysis. I love thinking about what I read almost as much as the reading itself ❤ I’ll try to keep from going down too many rabbit holes with you 🙂

Let’s get to it!

One of the things I love about A.E.’s works is that she usually hits me right in the feels. We’ve talked about it before—how I am weirdly synchronized to her works and really “get it” a lot more than some. (Writers, this is what it looks like when you find an “ideal reader”, and if you can find that in someone who is also a close friend, you are very, very blessed).
