What I Enjoy About Writing

I don’t know where to begin. I love writing. It’s challenging, but in the best way. “Writing. It hurts so good.” And yes, it does. I write whenever and wherever. And that’s the beauty of it. I make my own schedule and create stories to share with the world. Most importantly, I don’t have to make unnecessary sacrifices. I’m excited by what I do. I … Continue reading What I Enjoy About Writing

My Plans For Camp NaNoWriMo

Last week, I asked my sister what she thought I should work on for Camp NaNoWriMo. She arched a brow and asked, “Aren’t you still editing your first novel? Did you finish?” “Well, no. But, I have two other novels that are half way through and an idea for a novella I want to start.” I told her, sheepishly, because I knew what was coming. … Continue reading My Plans For Camp NaNoWriMo

A Bit of Thanks

Manners are important. They define you are as a person. It drives me crazy when someone can’t manage a please or thank you. Too often, it’s people who believed their entitled who don’t say so. Whether that’s simply them or a failure on their upbringing, I don’t know. What I do know is if you need something, you don’t demand. You ask and add a … Continue reading A Bit of Thanks

Before It’s Too Late

Get ready because I’m about to get morbid. Death is my inspiration. I am literally dying as I write this. The same way you are literally dying as you read it. You’re in the future and I’m in the past. What we do during the time in between—and after—is up to us. Some pretend death is never coming and waste away the minutes doing thing … Continue reading Before It’s Too Late

What’s A Little Mess?

Cleaning and organizing was my thing since I was a kid and well into my early twenties. Every thing was vacuumed, wiped down, and dusted frequently. Then I became a mom and all of it seemed pointless. At first, it was okay. My son couldn’t move far on his own yet and I was able to maintain everything as usual. Then he learned to crawl. … Continue reading What’s A Little Mess?

Life’s a Hobby

For so long, I thought of my writing as nothing more than a hobby. It was instilled in me that’s all it would ever be. Looking back, I realize that it was always so much more than that. It was my life. Throughout all of elementary, I would stay up late at night and write in bed. I’d use my pillow as cover and the … Continue reading Life’s a Hobby

Happy New Year!

It’s New Year’s Eve and only hours left before we’re powering into 2018! Isn’t mind blowing how the year has zipped right by?! So much has happened this year and it’s made me and my little family realize what we’re capable of. At the beginning of the year, we had set goals for ourselves that we dozed off on for some time. Half way through … Continue reading Happy New Year!

Sweet Sister of Mine

My relationship with my sister has grown so much since we were teens. We went from bickering and fighting about every little thing to loving and respecting each other the way all siblings should. I know that isn’t the case for every one, so I do consider us lucky. We’ve gone through a lot, together and separately, but it’s comforting to know we have each … Continue reading Sweet Sister of Mine
