Random Book Openings: #1

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

I've noticed that… Continue reading Random Book Openings: #1

It's actually chilly here in western Colorado. It will get hot later today, but it really feels like autumn now. I just love this… Continue reading Today’s Post -or- The Post Which Shall Not Be Named -or- I’m Tired of Titling Blog Posts

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

Writing Despite the Distractions

There's one question I hear over and over again: When do you find time to write? But I think a more accurate way to phrase the question would be: How do you write despite the distractions?

A Few Changes

Well, after a lot of thought and some really good talks with my husband, I've decided to push the second Cabin. Coffee. Love. novel back. I'm going to be honest--the story isn't working. It's just not. I'm very much a "mood" writer, if you will, and I'm simply not in the mood. What does that… Continue reading A Few Changes

Marquise of Carabas Update (Puss in Boots Retelling)

Good evening! I'm taking a short break from my manuscript tonight. It's going well, but with the craziness that has been my life in the last week, I'm afraid I'm not going to be finished by the end of the month. I also got stuck. Writer's block, ya'll--it's a real thing, and it stinks. According… Continue reading Marquise of Carabas Update (Puss in Boots Retelling)

Monday Update

Good evening, all! I'm mixing it up a bit and doing today's blog post at the end of the day instead of the morning. My husband's mother, sisters, and I started a weight loss challenge today. We're not competing, but I certainly don't want to be the one that falls behind, so this morning I… Continue reading Monday Update
