SFR Galaxy Awards for 2019!

I’m pushing my writing craft post to tomorrow to enjoy the Science Fiction Romance Galaxy Awards today! My TBR pile is sure to grow 🙂

I love learning about new authors and books through these awards. The judges’ mini-reviews are so helpful, and it’s great to see what stands out most to them. Judges get to create their own awards for the books they choose, making this all about recognition instead of competition ❤ Continue reading “SFR Galaxy Awards for 2019!”

Cold Moon Goals Progress

Looking back on my post for the new moon this month, I actually made a lot more progress than I realized! My planners for 2019 are set up (I actually have three of them), and though I haven’t mapped out exactly when I’ll be working on each writing project, I’m ready to roll with the next two—and I finished the novella I’ve been working on for way too long! That is some awesome progress.

Why I Blog

After writing a post of almost a thousand words about why I haven’t really blogged since last year, I finally hit on the epiphany I needed to write this one. The reason I do blog in the first place.

Blogging is my favorite way to talk to myself.

I know, that sounds weird. I interact with people in the comments. I see when people like certain posts. I have a fair amount of followers at the time of writing this, so how is it talking to myself to blog here?

The Cold Moon

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!

Winter New Moon

The new moon today will wax into the Cold Moon on January 1 (what an auspicious way to begin 2018!). I’ll be spending the rest of 2017 bundling up and snuggling with loved ones to stay warm, but also embracing the invigorating properties of cold. Continue reading “The Cold Moon”
