Don’t Forget to Do What You Love

Let's be honest--writing is a tricky critter. One minute it's a hobby, and the next it's your life. I believe this happens with anything you are truly passionate about, but especially when you turn a hobby into a business. (Though I haven't studied this, I have noticed that entrepreneurs have a tendency to be obsessive). Maybe your… Continue reading Don’t Forget to Do What You Love

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I am a disaster. You know that person who is so disorganized, it's painful? That's me. That's my husband.… Continue reading Creativity Amongst the Chaos

The Life of a Writer

It's happened, guys. I have no makeup on and I'm barefoot, wearing yoga pants, a tank top, and this really comfy, long T-shirt cardigan thing. On a Wednesday. I've officially joined the lazy writer's club (let's meet at Starbucks next week, yeah?).

Despite how crazy things have been around here lately, I actually got my novel word count in for the day.

August Update

We started school last week. Our district begins early, and we like to loosely follow their schedule so we have days off with cousins, but it seemed so early this year (even though it was a week later than last year). Oddly enough, the weather seemed to follow the school schedule as well. Autumn is… Continue reading August Update

Our lives are busy, aren't they? One day we find ourselves in the middle of them, rushing from one… Continue reading Writing Despite the Distractions
